ID #: 4233 Age: 9 months Gender: male Status: Adopted

Hi everyone in Canada. My name is Hunter and I’m a 9-month-old pup. I have had quite a life so far for such a young boy. I was born in Cairo and eventually abandoned to the streets. That was a pretty scary place. I was rescued by an amazingly kind lady who took me to her shelter with hundreds of other dogs. She was so good to me and she figured out a way to get me to your wonderful country, where she believed I would have a better chance of survival. Boy, was she right! I love it here so much. As if my early difficult life wasn’t bad enough, I have another issue. I have a wonky front leg. It doesn’t stop me from getting around. I can run with the best of them and to be quite honest, I don’t even notice it. I can get around with no trouble and I can even bound up and down stairs, so there is a school of thought that we leave well enough alone. My foster mom looks at me lovingly and has been so patient helping me to understand your ways. She says I’m really smart and I love my brain games and toys. I’ve also picked up your language pretty quickly. These are the Canadian words I have learned so far: sit, paw, down, bed, shhh/quiet, stay, come, sleep and treat, and I have good recall … in the house. Now, like my name implies, I’m a hunter. I love hunting squirrels ~ never had those in Cairo either. I also love chasing cats so I need to stay away from them too. As it relates to my personality let me say first, I am still a puppy so I have all the normal puppy qualities. I’m energetic, playful, and occasionally mouth, but all of these things are a work-in-progress typical of puppy behaviour. Even the leash is something I’m learning and a thing called a ‘gentle leader’ is helping. However, also like a pup, I’m affectionate, cuddly, loving, happy, and excited to open my eyes each morning to welcome a new day. If I have a strong leader to continue my education, my foster mom feels I will grow into a very good boy…wonky leg and all.
