Hyde is a 1 to 3-year-old shepherd hound mix. Initially, this guy can be timid, but will warm up. He will need a patient family to help him come out of his shell and encourage him to become more independent and outgoing. Hyde walks nice on a leash, and seems to get along with most other dogs. He got a little tense around cats, but was not reactive. We would advise caution. He was concerned during physical exam, but seemed to not have any idea what was going on. Eventually, he did relax. Hyde will need a family with some dog experience to help him grow into the dog we know he can be. We think Hyde would be best suited for a home with children 10 years of age and older.
