Update 5/19/2015: Hunter has been adopted! He moved to Florida and is with a new family and a dog as a playmate. He arrived there two days ago and seems like he is doing well. He has an acre fenced yard with access to 35 acres and and pond. He is getting along with his new playmate.


Hunter is a 11-month old male Boerboel that is looking for a new home. He is a sweet boy with his family, but he needs more room to run and would do best in a country atmosphere. He adores his family, and loves to play. His family regrets the decision to give him up, but feel he would do better if he has more space to run and play and has a job to do. He has been working with a professional trainer, and they are available to speak with potential screened adopters about his personality and temperament.
