VanDyke's Info...

VanDyke's Story...
VanDyke is a young redtick American English Coonhound from Virginia. He's gentle and friendly, good with other dogs. Vandyke would do best with another dog in the home for companionship.
He's got a lot of energy and enjoys his outside time, so he'd be a good companion for an active owner. Vandyke is working on some obedience training in his foster home. Like many of our southern hounds, it's likely that Van was an outside dog and did not have a lot of great interactions with humans. He's doing well with socializing and feeling comfortable around new people and groups of strangers encountered on outings. This is all sort of new to him. He's very attached to those he knows well and is affectionate and loving. We have seen this pattern many times before and Van offers a rewarding opportunity for an adopter who can give Van some TLC and continued training - and watch him blossom into a confident and well-behaved dog. Vandyke is about 2 yrs old and weighs about 45 - 50 lbs. He has arrived and is ready for visits eouth of Boston.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

VanDyke, a Lexington English (Redtick) Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English (Redtick) Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Lexington, or seeking a English (Redtick) Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Lexington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lexington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lexington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!

In fact, there are even English (Redtick) Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with English (Redtick) Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue.
