More about me

Howdy! I'm Hank, the adventure-loving pup who's always up for a thrill. My stunning eyes reflect the endless possibilities of the great outdoors, and I live for the adrenaline rush of a good game of fetch in the wild. So picture this – weekends spent up in Tahoe, chasing after balls amidst towering trees and pristine mountain air. When it comes to my canine companions, I'm the ultimate teammate. Whether it's exploring new trails or conquering rugged terrain, I play well with others and thrive in the company of fellow adventure-seekers. But don't let my love for action fool you – I also cherish those quiet moments by the campfire, soaking in the beauty of nature. Sure, I can be a bit stubborn at times, but it's all part of my determined spirit. I'm an athlete at heart, always pushing the boundaries and embracing the challenges that come my way. So if you're in need of a four-legged adventurer to join you on your next escapade, look no further than me, Hank. Together, we'll conquer mountains and create memories that will last a lifetime, Yee-haw!

Dog Care Basics

Please be patient while your dog adjusts to you and its new home. Please take your new dog directly home on a secure leash, collar or harness and try to keep it a calm environment while s/he investigates and acclimates. The transition may be somewhat stressful on your dog, and it’s best not to take it to a friend’s house, dog park, school or other busy, crowded place right away. A pet who displays a happy, playful attitude at the Adoption Center may act wary and fearful in a new environment. Please follow our Adoption Counselor’s advice during your adoption process!

Consider Getting Pet Insurance

In your adoption packet, there is information about signing up for a free trial for pet insurance. Please take advantage of this offer! It can help you save your dog’s life in the event of an unexpected accident. Additionally, you can research additional pet insurance options.

We’re Here to Help!

If you’ve viewed our Pet Behavioral Support page and still have questions, contact our Pet Help Line: (775) 324-7773, 200

Visit a Local Vet

Please take your dog to a veterinarian within two weeks of adoption to create a trusted relationship for emergencies, annual checkups, vaccinations, and on-going care.

Vaccinate Your Dog

Your new dog leaves our Adoption Center up to date on vaccinations, but you’ll need to continue its vaccinations and you may want additional ones (example: Canine Flu).

Dog Behavior

Watch for cues about how your pet is feeling. If your pet seems timid, try to move slowly, or just sit in the same room reading a book and let your pet come to you. If your pet is full of energy and ready to play, get out the toys right away. But be cautious. Pets can be both scared and full of energy. Modify your actions to make your new pet feel welcome. The care you take with your own behavior in early days will pay off in the future as your pet learns that you are someone to trust.
