Pets: Meet the Ann Arbor.com adoptable pet of the week: Chuck
If you are looking for a lovable, large Labrador Retriever mix the Humane Society of Huron Valley has a dog named Chuck that you must meet.
This handsome boy is estimated to be about 5 years old. We can’t tell you much about Chuck’s past history because he was a stray, but he was obviously loved and trained by someone. He is smart, and to our surprise, already knows the commands, sit, shake, down and speak.
He is an affectionate dog who enjoys his walks and playing tug of war. Chuck is also a strong dog, weighing in at 68 pounds, and can pull a bit on his leash when he sees a squirrel, so his adopter must be well-versed in having and handling a large dog.
During Chuck’s medical evaluation, we found he was heartworm positive. The Humane Society of Huron Valley treats dogs with this condition and Chuck is currently undergoing this care. We do expect him to make a full recovery, and he is still available for adoption while his treatment continues. What would be best for Chuck right now is a comfortable, caring home with a family that will love him.
HSHV is open seven days a week for adoption, so please stop in and ask for Chuck — he is waiting for you.
All pets available for adoption are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.
