found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
If you'd like to meet/adopt Toby please read about Gentle Jake's screening process and complete an adoption application via our website: http://www.coonhoundrescue.ca/adoption-application
Toby is a very happy boy! He is a handsome English (Red Tick) Coonhound, who is approximately 2 years old and weighs 53 pounds. He is very smart and has learned very quickly how to “sit”, “lay down”, “shake” and “go to your crate”. He is trying very hard to master “stay”. Toby is very eager to please and treat motivated.
Toby loves getting outdoors into the fresh air – and WHO DOESN’T?!? He has great manners on leash and does not pull. He will stand and patiently wait if you stop along the way and he is so calm and pleasant when meeting new people. He loves every person he has met so far! He doesn’t pay much attention to other dogs while out on his walks. Toby seems uninterested in cats and bunnies (unless they run) but squirrels and birds are lots of fun!
He is a moderately active dog who enjoys his daily walks – or even a run if you are up for it! He settles down nicely in the house when he has been properly exercised. He would also enjoy a fenced back yard. He does respect the fence, but he is a jumper and could easily clear a 4 foot fence (6 foot or higher would be recommended).
Toby loves h is crate and sleeps in it comfortably; he will often will go in on his own and settle in. He currently requires some supervision in the house so that he understands what is for dogs and what is for people. He is housetrained and has had no acc idents since arriving in foster care. He has a low Arooo and will use it to let you know if he needs to go out (and you somehow didn’t notice) or danger is imminent, aka The Mail M an.
He enjoys car rides, and would really love to help you drive by being on your lap. With the use of a car crate or barrier, Toby is only too happy to lay down and sleep for the ride.
Toby doesn’t seem to know how to play with other dogs and can use his mouth too much to say “Hey –Let’s Play!” When the other dogs show him that’s not cool, Toby is very submissive and backs off. He is the low dog in the pack. He does have this super cute little scoot that he does when he is trying to play.
Toby does not show food aggression. He runs to his bowl and sits patiently at feeding time. We work on focus and stay until he is released to eat. He will patiently wait for the other dogs to eat before he even goes for a drink of water. There have been no problems fighting over treats and his foster mom has taken food and bones from him easily and even pried his jaws open to remove a piece of bread from his mouth that he found on a walk.
He does seem to have been hit in his prior life. He is very afraid of the broom and gives it a very healthy distance at all cost. He would prefer to be in the house during any fireworks going off, but only seems to be slightly uneasy or startled with most other typical scary noises.
Toby is an all around great dog who would do well either as a single pet, or in a home with another dog or cat. He will most certainly need someone who can keep up with him. He will be a great dog for some lucky person or famlly! At present, h e does feel that he is a lap dog and looks for or demands affection, and he can get excited coming out of the crate to go outside and will jump up or use a paw on you. We are working on these small issues with Toby, but would recommend a home with older or dog savvy children .
An adoption donation of $375.00 applies.
Location: Columbus, OHIO. With the help of volunteers, transportation to a dog's forever home can possibly be arranged. Don't let distance deter you!
All of our dogs are fully vetted. They have been vaccinated, altered, microchipped and heartworm tested and on prevention.
Pet listings are updated daily. Unless it says otherwise at the top of this bio, this dog is still available for adoption.
