A handsome dog named Hemlock is longing for someone to take notice of him. The three-year-old pooch has been waiting at the Los Angeles County (Lancaster) facility since June, but nobody seems to want him.
Notes about Hemlock at the shelter’s play yard provide insight to his personality:
“As the runner approached the kennel, Hemlock lowered his head and body to the floor. He turned his head and body avoiding eye contact only occasionally looking back. His ears were back, and his tail was down. He was loop leashed easily. On leash he pulled to full extension orbiting the runner. Once he was in the catch pen, he nose to nose greeted multiple dogs and his tail came untucked and had a neutral wag and he relaxed his body and had a relaxed open mouth pant. Once the runner attempted to collar him, he rolled on his side avoidant of the collar. He then approached another runner who came to assist and rested his head on her leg and licked her hand and allowed her to collar him easily. Once he entered the yard, he approached a male pit bull and female German Shepherd and exchanged good greetings. After greetings he spent most of the rest of the time exploring the yard with a relaxed open mouth pant, soft eyes, relaxed body, and neutral tail wag. He approached a new dog entering the yard and she bared teeth at him and licked his nose while baring teeth and he respected her warning and walked away. Hemlock was social and friendly with the other dogs and seemed content to greet or explore on his own in the yard.
Hemlock wants to be loved – will you please take a moment to help find him a family? He has been waiting far too long.
