Neutered Male, Plotthound/Redbone Hound Mix, 4 months old, 30 pounds
This sweet, loveable, total lap dog is known as Moe. He and his two brothers were left on the front porch of a local spay/neuter clinic, in the freezing 20 degree cold. Rescue was called in to help them, and they've been living the sweet life in foster care while they received their vetting and wait to be adopted. Our best guess on breed is plotthound/redbone hound (his two brothers are both more redbone). He has a fondness for wanting to be wherever people are, and dislikes not being included in the fun! He loves toys, rawhide chews, and basically just playing with people. He is still learning not to bite on hands when playing, but his foster mom is working with him. He's a smart little guy, and can let you know he's around by "singing" in his best hound dog voice.
Moe would love to have another rough and tumble fur-sibling in his new home, and a completely fenced in yard is probably best for this hound dog (his nose is likely to lead him into places he shouldn't be). Future owners should also keep in mind that they are looking at adopting a hound dog. Meaning -- baying and/or howling uncontrollably at leaves that might intrude upon his yard, and (heaven forbid) a squirrel ever come within a mile's radius of their backyard, because you will never hear the end of it. YOU MUST LOVE HOUNDS.
Moe has been neutered, microchipped, received three (3) DHPP vaccines, bordatella vaccine, and started on monthly heartworm and flea preventatives. He is in foster care in East Tennessee. His adoption fee is $450 which includes all vetting and transport. Vet references, personal references, and home visits may be required prior to adoption.
