Abner is a big, goofy hound who doesn't know much about life yet. Born in 2016, he came to Best Friends from a shelter in Texas. He is a bit nervous of new people and new situations and has the potential to be a flight risk if he gets really scared. Abner is just learning how to walk on a leash, so he often runs to and fro trying to see and smell everything. He can be reserved at times and playful at others. At Dogtown, he's getting lots of exposure to new things and new situations. As he's gained confidence, he has started seeking attention from his caregivers. Abner would love a home with a patient person or family who can help him keep building his confidence and finding his way in the world.
