Meet Hercules

Meet Hercules. Hercules was SUPPOSED to be a chiweenie. But he kept growing. And growing. And growing. At about 2 years old he is now almost 32 lbs. (And yes, he needs to lose a few!) He really doesn't look much like a chi or a weenie. We are not too sure what Hercules is, but he ended up in a small shelter where no one was giving him a second look. Or even a first look for that matter.
We don't know why, b/c Hercules is really one of the sweetest dogs we've met. He absolutely loves people and he has the greatest smile. He does well with other dogs his size but is intimidated by large dogs. (We think he was attacked at some point by a larger dog due to some serious scars on his hind leg.) 

Hercules is potty trained, crate trained and he waits politely to be invited up on the furniture. He does get really excited when it comes to people though and jumps up on them. We recommend that he not be around small children as he would knock them over in his excitement without meaning to hurt them. His foster thinks he has springs in his feet (another reason to doubt the dachshund lineage!) as he can jump quite high. Hercules has a lot of energy and can run pretty fast for a guy carrying extra weight. 
A basic reward based training class would be great for Hercules as it would help him focus and learn not to jump up and knock ppl over. We recommend an active home that will keep Hercules busy as he does have a lot of energy, and a family willing to work on his weight through diet and exercise. Hercules will need a securely fenced yard as he is a "runner." He would do fine as an only dog or with other dogs his size in the home.

Suggested adoption donation for Hercules is a minimum of $250 and goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our rescue dogs. Wag N Train Terrier Rescue adopts to other geographical areas as long as we can find a local volunteer to perform the courtesy home visit, and requires the adopter to travel to Omaha, NE to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not arrange transport, or fly our rescue dogs without a "pet nanny". A securely fenced yard is necessary to adopt one of our terriers. Please note: invisible or underground fencing is not considered secure or appropriate containment for terriers.
