Elbert is a probable Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. He is estimated to be 2-3 years old, he was 52 lbs when we rescued him, and has a target weight of ~60 lbs.
He is calm and gentle with people, very personable. Elbert likes to give hugs, lean on his people, and snuggle. He does seem to be selective with other dogs, and for this reason he will do best in a home with no other pets.
He’s got a very soft, very fine, low shed coat. Mostly black and white, with some brown on the face and jaw. His gait is more like a horse's trot than a run, probably due to the hunk of lead in his back. He does not appear to be in active pain.
Has the typical curiosity of a hound, wanting to sniff everything in sight. He is crate trained, and house trained, and will have no accidents if allowed outside regularly (4-5 hours). He has been okay overnight.
