From the Foster: She is 63 pounds, around 8 years old, house broken, hardly ever barks and is extremely loving to people and great with kids. She is a dominant female so she would do best on her own or with younger and more submissive dogs.
She would love an active family to get outside often or to live on a farm. If you have a rodent problem she would be a great help as she is a good hunter... (not hunting dog) She loves to hunt small critters and she will kill them if she catches them... mice, chipmunks, raccoons, etc. a skill I believe she mastered while living on her own before she was rescued. She does ok with cats as long as they are introduced properly and the cats do not run from her.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
I f you would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/
adoption-information/and the foster(s) will be in touch! Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
