Twister was picked up on Hwy 99 on 6/15/16. He appears to be a walker coonhound mix. When he first came in he would not let us get near him and would run away. Now he loves attention and to follow us around when he is out of his kennel. He definitely has a coonhound bark and loves to sing! Gets along well with all the other dogs but will pick a fight over food.
