Leo's Story...
This poor boy has had a rough life so far and is still in need. He was found tied to the porch of a Lions Club, outside a small MO town. No one knows how long he had been there or why. Leo was taken in by a kind rescuer and a rescue group was found for him. He was soon completely vetted and on his way. His tail had an old injury and had to be removed prior to going. Once at the rescue shelter, he was evaluated and it was found that he guards his food. This is not something they can deal with in the shelter and they have few fosters, so the have declined taking him into their program. Leo needs to find a foster based rescue as soon as possible. Initially he was found very thin and it is very possible the shelter environment is producing a behavior that might not otherwise be a problem, or could at least be worked with. He spent several weeks with a foster prior to leaving for this shelter and showed no signs of food aggression what so ever. Even when he had the cone on after his tail surgery, and was guided to the food bowl, there was no problem.
The rescue evaluation for him was good in every other way. His dog to dog testing was good. He is good with handling and vetting. His food bowl is actually worse than the resource (pig ear/raw hide). He is kind of an odd duck because he makes similar vocalizations over his resources, that he does when he wants attention/is playing. He is young and playful… a good boy, with lots of energy! He just needs another chance to find his perfect forever… and a little patience and training to overcome any food issues, that have likely come from being left hungry for a very long time, and possibly feeling insecure about his food in the shelter. Leo is 45lbs, a Walker Coonhound.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manhattan 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 Manhattan 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 Treeing Walker Coonhound breeders who help with Treeing Walker Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
