Ninja, a three year old male hunting dog. mix, was collected as a stray animal by Greene County Animal Control in September 2020. Unfortunately, no owner came forward to claim it, so the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society took him to the adoption center when his stray take at animal control has been completed. At first, Ninja was afraid of his new surroundings, but with a lot of love and care from the staff and volunteers of The Humane Society, Ninja quickly came out of his shell and became a favorite with everyone. . He is the kind of dog who greets everyone with a wagging tail. A funny thing about Ninja is that when he’s excited he hops like a bunny!
Ninja is clean, so a house inside would be great for him. He listens well and has learned several commands. Ninja loves his bed and stuffed animals, but loves to pull the stuffing on his blankets and toys. Ninja will hunt cats, so we believe his eternal home should be without feline friends. He would also do better in a house as a single dog as he likes to be the center of attention.
Ninja is a medium sized dog with a beautiful shiny brown coat. Due to an old injury or possible leg surgery in the past, he favors it after a day of play, but that doesn’t slow him down. He came out of the puppy stage but still loves to run and play. Ninja would love to play outside, then come home for supper and get into bed (or yours) and cuddle.
Ninja has passed all his checks and is a healthy dog. He was sterilized, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and examined by a veterinarian. He was treated for fleas and tested negative for heartworms. He is aware of his heartworm prevention.
Ninja is ready to go home forever. It even has reduced adoption fees!
Come visit Ninja, maybe go for a walk with him. We are sure that a family or a loving person will be a match for him!
