I am purebred.
Meet Benson! He is a gorgeous purebred Black and Tan Coonhound with tons of spare energy to burn! He will need a family who is dedicated to providing him with adequate daily exercise. Benson has a history of escaping his yard, so tall fencing and very close outdoor supervision is required to ensure his safety. He is a smart guy who already knows how to sit and shake. Like most hounds, Benson is quite vocal and may not be appreciated by your neighbors if you live in close proximity to others. Benson would LOVE to participate in a nose work or tracking class with you to put that powerful nose of his to work! If you are not familiar with the breed, please do some research before considering adding Benson to your family. The cost of Benson's adoption does not include the cost of his neuter surgery. Once adopted, he will be transported to a local veterinarian where he will be released to his adopters once payment to the clinic is complete. Come let this beautiful boy steal your heart today!
