Hi! My name is Bruno (Mars) and I am a young, energetic, intelligent and extremely handsome Redbone Coonhound and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix! I am around one year old and have lots of fun energy. I love to romp around my foster mom's backyard for a long time playing with my foster siblings. I ADORE other dogs and must go to a home with at least one other dog. I do best with dogs that are 30 pounds or bigger and who like to play hard! My high energy can be overwhelming for a small dog though I am not aggressive with them. I am looking for a home with a fenced in back yard or with a very active family since I need an outlet for my energy!
I am an independent dog but I do love to crawl up beside my foster mom and snuggle her. She gives the best ear rubs! I am actually lying on the couch right now with my foster mom and two of my foster siblings! Every night me and my foster siblings watch the news with our foster mom and she lets us chew on cow hooves and rope toys. I LOVEEEE to chew on cow hooves! I walk pretty well on leash but I do sometimes get a whiff of something that smells so good and pull a bit. My foster mom typically uses the Easy Walk Harness with me but also says I do well on the martingale (no-slip) collar! I really love to go for walks as well as play in the backyard! It is super fun to play fetch and dig for moles. I am great with my human foster cousins who are 8 and 10! They love me and my floppy ears! When they come over we play fetch in the back yard with my other furry foster siblings for hours! I also love it when they take me to the dog park to run around and play with new dogs! I am super friendly and submissive with every dog I meet! Because I am young and goofy and am still learning how to respect others space so it is best I do not go to a home with children under 5. I have not been around cats but would likely chase them since I have the hunters' instinct. If you would like my foster mom to cat test me that can be arranged!
My foster mom finds my cute hound habits endearing (I like to counter surf from time to time) and she knows that there is a family out there that will feel the same! Someone who loves an energetic, loving and sometimes mischievous companion would be perfect for me! I also have that adorable hound bark which my foster mom thinks is so precious!
I am up to date on vaccines, microchipped, neutered and on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. My adoption fee is $225. If you have any questions about me, please email my foster mom at FCHSLauraElizabeth@gmail.com
