Hank appears to be a Redbone Coonhound and he is a Hound through and through, with some typical stubbornness, like when he's sure he has treed something in the backyard. NO CATS for this boy! He is an awesome dude and a big lug at 85 lbs. He gets along with dogs of all shapes and sizes as long as food is not involved. Like many rescue dogs, he has probably had to fight for food at some point and so he is a little too protective over it. Once he bonds with a human, he bonds strongly and might try to protect his person, so we have placed Hank with a trainer to get some evaluation information and some tips on how his new family needs to work with him. We wouldn't place Hank with small children but older kids who can work with him too would be great. He is an oversized snuggle bunny for sure!

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
