VIDEO: LB was the WRAL Pet of the Day on June 29, 2014. See his TV debut by copying this link and pasting it in a new browser window: http://www.wral.com/lifestyles/pets/video/13773960/#/vid13773960 STATUS: Accepting applications PERSONALITY TRAITS: Affectionate, playful ~DOB: April 2011 WEIGHT: 45 lbs HEALTH STATUS: LB is UTD on all vaccinations and monthly preventatives. SPAYED OR NEUTERED: Neutered. MICROCHIPPED: Yes AROUND DOGS: LB needs to go to a home without other dogs. He would do best with an experienced dog owner who practices pack leadership. AROUND CATS: Unsure as LB has never lived with a kitty, but we can safely test him should a potential adopter request. AROUND CHILDREN: LB would do best in a home without children. HOUSEBROKEN: LB has excellent house manners. CRATETRAINED: LB responds to the command kennel up to go into his crate. LEASH MANNERS: Tugs a little, but responds well when walking on leash especially to positive reinforcement. He likes to chew his nylon leash, so needs careful attention or use a sturdier leash. CAR RIDES: LB loves car rides! He rides calmly, but if a stranger approaches the car unexpectedly he can become anxious. His foster mom is working with him to overcome this. FOSTER PARENT COMMENTS: LB is affectionately called a Noodle Dog because he turns into a floppy noodle when receiving affection from his humans! LB has some typical hound-like anxiety toward strangers. He does like to alert his humans if someone comes to the door, but with proper introductions he seeks affection. Once he has met someone and relaxes he becomes very happy to see them again. LB likes to play with his squeaky toys. He does well in a fenced in yard or if someone walks him a couple times a day. Although he does well in a crate, he can be trusted to be uncrated when you are not home, and he prefers it that way. EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: A kind person found LB as a stray when he was about 5 months old and approached BFPA for help. He was brought into our group and fostered by his rescuer and soon adopted. Unfortunately his adopter returned him to BFPA a year later due to dominance issues with her other male dog. Some of the information contained in this biography includes approximations based on our expertise and is not guaranteed. We do home visits to finalize adoptions and/or deliver the adopted dog. Therefore, we prefer potential adopters live a reasonable distance to the Triangle area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) of North Carolina. INTERESTED IN ADOPTING LB?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LB, a Cary Bluetick Coonhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bluetick Coonhound for sale in Cary, or seeking a Bluetick Coonhound dog from a breeder in Cary.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cary already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cary breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Bluetick Coonhound breeders who help with Bluetick Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cary paves the way for another one to be saved.
