Tommy's Info...

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

Tommy's Story...
Tommy is a young, active Blue Tick hound/pointer mix looking for his forever home. He is about 1 1/2 years old; neutered; chipped; and is up to date on all his shots. He was rescued from MCACC east shelter as a stray, so we don't know much about his history. He was very fearful and timid for quite a while, so he was probably tied or chained outside without much interaction or any training. Tommy is very shy on his first meeting with new humans or other dogs, but warms up quickly with dog savvy folks and children. He is crate trained and 95% housebroken. Tommy is not a dominant male and would enjoy the company of other dogs as long as their play and interaction is not too aggressive. He does enjoy long walks and is a good running partner. He does need daily exercise, and needs a safe and secure yard. He can be left alone for periods of time in his crate, but would not do well left alone outside. He has not been exposed to cats in a household. He is very smart and responds well to training. Tommy will need to be with an owner who is willing to continue his training on both inside and outside behavior, have a secure environment for play and exercise, and be willing to give him lots of love and attention. He is a great running companion for his foster Mom, and is doing great with his obedience training as well.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix 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 Phoenix 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 Pointer/Bluetick Coonhound breeders who help with Pointer/Bluetick Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
