Heidi - Adopted!'s Story...

Heidi has just made her way to Gentle Jake’s Coonhound Rescue please be sure to check back for updates as we get to know her better.  She is a pretty, petite English coonhound mix, just 45lbs.

Since her arrival, Heidi has been the life of the party! All puppy, she has been happily exploring her new surroundings by nose and by mouth, checking everything out and trying to get her new canine and feline housemates, to play with her.   She likes to carry items in her mouth: towels, clothes, blankets, shoes from one place to the next.

She doesn’t destroy or chew them; but enjoys moving things around.

Heidi’s soft, beautiful fur and playful, funny disposition suggests she is quite young. She doesn’t seem to have any experience walking on a leash or any understanding of basic behaviours such as “sit.”  Yet!

She took the stairs 3 at a time the first evening.  Heidi can be timid and skittish when she’s unsure,  but she’s  a quick and willing learner with calm, cheerful encouragement and yummy rewards. She responds appropriately and easily to gentle re-direction when mouthing on something that isn’t a chew-toy and loves to pitch her toys in the air and return them to the couch.  Once tired, she’s very happy to settle in for snuggle-and-snooze time on the couch with her people and is really affectionate and sweet.   As with all young dogs, Heidi will benefit from doggie good manners training and from regular opportunities to socialize with experienced, polite dogs at a doggie daycare facility or securely fenced dog park.

Temperament:  Playful, timid, and affectionate Activity level: medium-high energy, in short bursts. Needs nap time in between. Crate trained: crates well  overnight and for nap time.

Origin: Kentucky shelter; stray

Requirements: securely fenced yard is required at all times; no apartment; positive-based training classes following adoption; ideally another well socialized dog in the home; no off-leash activities without safe containment (ie. hiking, camping, cottaging).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Heidi - Adopted!, a Ontario English (Redtick) Coonhound/Coonhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English (Redtick) Coonhound/Coonhound for sale in Ontario, or seeking a English (Redtick) Coonhound/Coonhound dog from a breeder in Ontario.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ontario already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ontario breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English (Redtick) Coonhound/Coonhound breeders who help with English (Redtick) Coonhound/Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ontario paves the way for another one to be saved.
