Greetings! My name is Kaylee Kay, or Kay Kay or affectionately called Special K. I am a really lucky girl, especially now I am now safe with Rover Rescue. I was originally found as a stray dog in Southern Indiana. I was taken to a shelter where I stole the hearts of everyone I met. The shelter workers were ecstatic when they found out that I was going to a rescue in IL. You see, Coonhounds like me have a very hard time getting adopted in the area I come from. We are called the Pit Bulls of the South- we are overbred and under appreciated! My foster mom loves Coonhounds, and Treeing Walker Coonhounds are her favorite. She loves the tri-color of our coat and just laughs when she is asked if I am an oversized beagle. I don't know too many beagles that weigh 68 pounds. The vet seems to think I am around 4 years old and that I have 1 or 2 or 20 litters. Yes, I was another one of those puppy making machines. More than likely, my first owners kept one of my adorable offspring and dumped me. Thank goodness, my life has definitely made a change for the better! My puppy rearing days are over now that I am fixed and I am sure enjoying indoor living. I am easily one of the most mellow dogs my foster family has ever had. I am quite content to snuggle up on the couch with a blanket and watch the world go by. I do have my moments that I get excited and I get rambunctious, but they are infrequent and short-lived. I would make a perfect pet for just about any family. My laid back demeanor makes me ideal with even the younger or older generations. I know not to jump and am not mouthy. I can be a little shy, but I do warm up once I know that you have a gentle hand. I don't require a lot of attention, but sure appreciate any affection bestowed on me. I get along well with the other dogs in the house. I even let the annoying puppy pull my long silky ears until he tugs too hard and I yelp. My foster mom can't believe how tolerant I am with the young fellow. I am not going to be a great playmate for a hyper, super-active dog, but I will gladly watch the craziness from the side. I have been to the local dog park a couple of times and it was great fun to stretch out my legs and run with the other dogs in attendance. Though most of the time, I had my nose to the ground. Yes, I am going to need a fenced in backyard for my safety. If I catch a good scent, I am all over it and have selective hearing, i.e. not knowing my name. There are times that my temporary family has to physically retrieve me when it is time to come inside. I walk pretty well on a leash, but my foster mom does use a prong collar when we are out and about. If I see a critter, like a bunny or a squirrel, watch out! I am called a critter getter for a reason. There are no kitties in my foster home. I am not sure how I would do with a cat. I ride well in the car and I don't even demand to ride shotgun. I am housetrained, though I did have one accident inside. I don't always want to go out when the other dogs have a potty break. My foster mom didn't make me go and while she was gone, I just couldn't hold it. Now even if I try to stay on the couch, I get pulled off and made to join the others. Sigh! I have not been destructive in the house so I no longer have to sleep in my crate. I get the privilege of spending the night in the master bedroom. I will join you in bed if that is allowed. I make a wonderful cuddle companion. I do spend my alone time in my crate and I don't even complain. Actually, I have yet to bark or bay. My quiet personality would make me a good match for apartment or townhome living. If you would like to find out more about a sweet, deserving girl like me, please call my foster mom, Darla, at 630-406-9405. You will agree that I am definitely a special Kay! My adoption fee is $200 and includes my up-to-date vetting, a recent much needed dental and free microchip.
