Hi folks, I'm Nathan! I'm a young American Foxhound mix, only about 8 months old. I came to BAHS as a stray and I'm trying to find my way into a new home with a family who understands me. I am your typical Hound boy- loves attention, being outside, going on adventures, high energy, ready for anything! I like to stay busy and I want something to do. I would be a great hiking companion or hunting buddy! I am working on manners here because I like to pull hard on my leash when I catch a scent- and I also enjoy jumping up onto people when I get excited (which is almost all the time!). I'm looking for an experienced dog owner who can continue working with me on those skills so I can be the best Hound dog I can be. Let's get to know each other a little better and maybe we'll be exploring the world together soon!
This shelter pet is part of our Almost Home! Foster Program and is currently staying in a foster home. In this program experienced foster families care for and promote these adoptable pets until an adoptive family can be found. Interested in adopting an Almost Home! pet?
Please complete an adoption application and submit it to the Bay Area Humane Society along with the name of the pet you are interested in. The foster family will review your application, and if approved, set up a time for you to meet the Almost Home pet. Here is a link to our adoption applications: bayareahumanesociety.com/what-we-do/adopt/adoption-applications.html
If you currently have a dog in the home and are interested in an Almost Home! dog, the foster will conduct a dog meet between your dog and the foster dog to make sure everyone gets along.
If it looks like a good match, the foster family will take you through the adoption process - neither you nor the foster pet will need to come to the shelter! Also, the adoption fee for this pet has been sponsored!
Thank you for your interest in making this Almost Home! foster pet a part of YOUR family!
