Dog of the Week: Cletus

Julia D Dog of the Week


Cletus is heartworm positive and will begin treatment soon.

Cletus 2Cletus 3This handsome guy is Cletus who flew in all the way from the Lone Star State. His history is unknown but based on his previous condition it’s possible he was used as a hog dog. Hog dogs are quite common in Texas. Picture Old Yeller grouping the hogs together for his boy to get a good idea of what his job may have been and how difficult it is. So some of his past injuries are consistent to cuts and bites received from angry hogs.  Despite having such a tough beginning, he is totally soft on the inside. He is a gentleman to all he meets. Although he’s probably never lived in a house before, he is quite respectful of your belongings.

He is working on walking with a leash and tends to follow his nose when he picks up a scent but walks perfectly when he has his Gentle Leader on. He is working on house training, as this is all new to him.   Cletus is a low maintenance dog meaning he does not excessively bark, does not need a lot of activity, and is not destructive or anxious. He is content laying in the yard enjoying the sunshine or sitting next to you watching television.
