Herk is currently Austin Animal Centers longest stay dog and naturally a volunteer favorite! Over 1 year has passed since he has arrived. He is a classic  American Pit Bull Terrier mix and has many of the breeds traits such as strength, confidence, and zest for life. Being an intelligent and athletic dog Herk would be best suited for an active family. He would excel at agility, obedience competitions and fly ball! Continued manners training is a must for anyone considering him although he does know sit and loads up in the car readily. Transition into your home takes time, keep him on a schedule with mental and physical activities and you will be rewarded with one of the most loyal and loving dog in town! As of July 29, 2014, Herk will be with us 420 days!!
