Herbie's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Herbie's Story...
​I’m about 3-4 years old and I’m a Treeing Walker Coonhound. I don’t remember my parents so I might be a mix, but I don’t think so. I weigh about 63 pounds and am tall and lean. The vet said I’m a healthy boy. I’m up to date on my vaccinations, heartworm and flea meds; neutered; microchipped and completely adorable.

My foster mom calls me Herbie the Love Bug because the white fur on my forehead looks a little like a heart which means I am the perfect Valentine gift. Well, that and I’m a sweet, lovable kind of guy.

I love to run. My human foster brother takes me for “walks” while wearing roller blades. He goes fast but I can run fast too!! I enjoy running in the back yard and at the dog park with my canine foster brother and sister. I’m faster than both of them because I have long legs that are perfect for running.

I’m also a very curious guy. My canine foster brother and sister like to play with toys. I haven’t quite got the hang of toys but I’m trying. They seem to really enjoy the toys, especially the squeaky ones so I’m slowly getting the hang it. However, I really enjoy being petted.

​When anyone comes to our house I let my entire foster family know with my deep, loud, hound bark/howl. I don’t want my foster family to be surprised. Besides, I enjoy greeting visitors. I don’t jump on them or lick them. I just prance around because I’m so happy someone new is here to pet me.

Food and treats are two of my favorite things too. Yummy!!! I love chewing a rawhide bone too. My foster mom is trying to teach me how to sit and lay down but I just want her to give me the treats. I suppose I’ll have to sit and all that nonsense but really, she should just give me the treat, right?

​I should tell you what I don’t like too. I don’t like sudden, loud noises. They scare me. And I don’t like it when other dogs bark at me and jump on me. I like playing with other dogs but not when they get too rambunctious. I just run away. Did I tell you that I love to run and I’m really fast? What can I say? I’m a lover, not a fighter.

My foster mommy said I should tell you my faults too. Because I have nice, long legs, food on the counter can be a little too tempting. Sometimes, not often, I help myself to a snack. Honestly, I don’t this is a fault. I’m simply not bothering anyone to get the food for me. Isn’t that thoughtful of me not to bother anyone? Also, my foster family ​has a guinea pig. I love that thing! I jump on her cage and paw at her. That makes her squeal and run all around. It also makes my foster family very upset. I’m not sure why because it’s a lot of fun. Anyway, my foster mommy said I should stay away from guinea pigs. On the plus side, I am completely house trained and never chew anything I shouldn’t.

What I want most of all is a forever home with a nice family or person that I can love forever and ever. I will need a home with a nice, fenced in yard so I can run. So, if you think I might make a good addition to your family, please let the people at DogWorks know by going to www.dogworksohio.com and filling out an application. There’s no cost and no obligation to fill out an application.

However, there is a small adoption fee of $165 to help cover the cost of my vaccinations, neutering, microchipping, etc.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Herbie, a Toledo 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 Toledo, or seeking a Treeing Walker Coonhound dog from a breeder in Toledo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toledo 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 Toledo 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 Toledo paves the way for another one to be saved.
