I have been adopted!

Meet Roscoe!  This big handsome boy is a gorgeous bluetick coonhound who is about 7 years old.  He is about 80 pounds.

Note from his foster mom:

He is such a sweet boy, and very easy to integrate into the house. He loves hugs and cuddles, and will paw at me and even jump up on me if he's not getting the attention he wants.

He is calm in his crate when it's bedtime or his people need to leave for work.  He may fuss a little if he needs to go in his crate when it's not part of routine, but he does settle.  He is smart too – he is quickly catching onto the rules and routines of the house.  I make the dogs wait at the door before coming in and he is picking that up quickly. I am feeding him by hand and teaching him to look at me rather than at the food before he gets fed, and he learned that fast too.  He also figured out how to open the lid on the dog food bin within 10 seconds.

He pulled a lot on walks at first, but walks much better now.  He loves squirrels and his wonderful ears stand right out when he's catches sight of one.  He makes a wonderful BAROO when he is excited about going on a walk or just happy to be outside.  He is a strong boy and will need a strong, confident adult to walk him.

He was obviously a house dog before, because he climbed up onto the sofa and onto the bed and layed down right away.  

Roscoe seems more independent of other dogs (or is more secure).  He does his own thing and doesn't necessarily follow the other two dogs in his foster home, when they are out in the backyard.   I could see Roscoe going to a home on his own as he is more people oriented.

Roscoe gets along with cats that don't run away from him.  He will chase a running cat but will do well with a confident cat in the house.

Due to Roscoe's bouncy personality, he may be best suited for a home with older children, as Roscoe doesn't know his own size.

Roscoe is housetrained.

Please Note: We are all volunteers and busy taking care of our foster dogs so please take the time to fill out our on-line adoption application if you are interested in more information about any of the hounds that we have for adoption. Filling out our application does not obligate you to adopt in any way. It does, however, help us to determine if the dog that your interested in would be a good match for your family and lifestyle.

All of our dogs are fully vetted. They have been vaccinated, altered, microchipped and heartworm tested and on prevention.



LOCATION: Roscoe is currently in foster care in Ottawa, ON. With the help of volunteers, transportation to his forever home can possibly be arranged. Don't let distance deter you!

About Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue

Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue is a small, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the memory of my beloved coonhound Jake.

We have been rescuing these wonderful hounds since 2003. We are also a member of Coonhound Companions where our goal is to educate the public about misconception that hounds do not make good family pets. We want to share our love of coonhounds with the whole continent, with hopes of inspiring dog lovers everywhere to consider adopting a coonhound.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptive homes are required to go through a screening process that includes a telephone interview, filling out an application, reference checks and a home visit. An adoption donation is required to offset some of the costs incurred in caring for and re-homing each coonhound. Bluetick Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue remains committed to each animal for the rest of its life and if, at any time and for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we require that the hound be returned to us.
