Clauder and her husband decided to give up Hank for adoption because she is currently looking for new work with her husband and being out most of the day, so they both have little time to take care of Hank.
“Hank cannot be alone, and he doesn’t deserve to be alone – at least during this stage in his life”, Clauder stated. They also do not want to leave the dog inside a crate all day, saying, “that is not his personality.”
In the ad, Clauder describes Hank as always having an ‘always-on personality’ adding that “I love this dog, but he is exhausting.” She laced her ad with cuss words that are meant to be funny because she wanted to attract the right kind of would-be owner that is active, tough, and willing to take on Hank’s similar personality.
“I did not want to advertise Hank as just a great family dog with small babies and children, because that’s not Hank. And being honest about his personality would reduce the chances of a return. If you’re offended by words on a website, Hank isn’t the dog for you because Hank is an offensive dog…and you will need a thick skin and that sense of humor to be able to raise him,” Clauder said.
The adoption site has already received numerous inquiries and each one is being carefully reviewed.
