My name is Astrict...and I am a 9-year old, female Coonhound. I weigh about 48lb, and I am already spayed. Now with that out of the way, I want to tell you about me! My best feature? My big, deep, brown eyes. My foster mom says I really know how to use them to get affection and treats! And if that doesn’t work, I will gently place my paw on your leg so I’m sure you notice me.
I am a “scent” hound, and I chase scents. Maybe that's why I was found as a stray...or maybe, it was because “this dog don’t hunt!” Either way, I am in hound heaven now. I’m in a great foster home where they give me lots attention...I really like attention from people. I also really like kids, I get along great with other dogs AND I even ignore cats...just not interested. Now, I am sensitive though...my family is very important to me...I am very eager to please you, and I am very distraut when you are unhappy with me.
I am crate trained (I sleep in a crate at night and sometimes during the day), I walk well on my leash, I hardly ever bark and everyone says I am a total sweetheart! I am also house-trained and I know how to use the doggy door. So, if you have a secure, fenced yard (maybe 6-feet high), I would be such a happy girl! But I also enjoy long walks, hikes with the family, and romping in the backyard with the kids. You see, even though I was bred for endurance and running (and I need my exercise), I also want to be with my family, my pack. Just don’t forget to keep me leashed when I’m not in a secured area; I don't want you to lose me! And interestingly, I really like to “nest,” in a pile of blankets, on the sofa with you, or even a laundry basket! My foster mom says my only flaw is (wait for it…) I will steal your seat if you get up to do something ;-)
So, if you are looking for a mellow, laid-back, sweet girl, who loves to be with her people and get all the attention from you she can, then come and meet me. You can fill out an adoption application at the web address shown below...
