Is your idea of a workout a trip from the couch to the refrigerator and back? Are you laid back and lazy, preferring to binge watch Netflix rather than compete in a Triathlon?
If that’s you, I am your perfect match. Despite my long and lean physique, I am the world’s laziest dog. I hate going for long walks! Cuddling on the couch, on the other hand, is something I revel in!
I am a very healthy Blue-Tick Coonhound mix. I am just 3 to 5 years old and extremely handsome and well behaved. I am a shy soul. It takes me a while to warm up to people, but once you have my trust, I am your most loyal friend and companion. I am neutered, up to date on my shots, crate trained, house broken and very well behaved.
I love children and adults, and get along very well with other dogs. I don’t like to go to the dog park, though – too much noise and commotion for me.
My only issue (if you really could call it an issue) is that I don’t care for loud noises. Thunder, fireworks or sudden large noises scare the living daylights out of me. I am also kind of fearful of buses and bikes. City living really isn’t for me, but a home in the country with a nice, securely fenced yard would be ideal. I would love the quiet of country life.
Having a great family to cherish me is also on my wish list. I want someone to devote myself to, who will appreciate a low-key, low maintenance, low-energy pooch like me.
I have such a handsome face and unique markings. Definitely one of “nature’s designer dogs”.
My owner loves me to bits, but he is a very active person. He had hoped I would go with him on runs, hiking and other activities, but I am more of a homebody. I really need to be in a country home where I can stay in my comfortable surroundings. A nice back yard to explore at my own pace, and some nice kids to spend time with would be perfect for me.
Please offer me a loving, forever home today. Let’s curl up on the couch together and watch NetFlix.
Love and licks,
