I’m a super sweet girl but I’m a little bit shy. I need a little coaxing to come out of my shell.
What’s that you say?
You have dogs?
Well, why didn’t tell me sooner? I’m not shy around other dogs. In fact, I have a foster-brother and we’re BFF’s. And he’s been teaching me all kinds of things like playing tug-of war with a rope and I adore Kongs (and, come on, what fun-loving dog doesn’t)? And I am completely happy with just an ole tennis ball.
I bet you wondering what the heck a Treeing Walker Coonhound is. Well, I come from the English and American Foxhounds. The story goes that my breed originated in the United States when someone stole a dog with an unknown origin and became known as the “Tennessee Lead” and it was crossed into the Walker Hound. My breed is typically known as sporting or hunting, but I can be a little timid around new sights and sounds. I am however working on lease walking and if you have the patience to train me, I’ll let you in on a little secret…I’m completely motivated by food.
I have a beautiful coat of black, white and brown and all you really have to do is give me a bath and a brushing from time to time. I’m what you call low maintence in that area.
I’m a little over a year old and about 52 pounds. I probably won’t grow more in my height, but I should end up being about 60 pounds.
I am house-broken, crate trained, great with kids and did I mention that I don’t at all mind sharing my toys? In fact, if you already have a dog and you’re looking for another, I would love to join your family.
If you’d like to see me in person, you can schedule a meet and greet with one of the volunteers for Coming Home Rescue. They can be reached at 1-888-405-7221 or send them an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
