My name is Sniffy!
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
1-2 year old Sniffy is a wonderful bloodhound boy. He's not as large as some bloodhounds, so he's the perfect "pet size". Bloodhounds need fences - they cannot be trusted to return when called as their nose may overpower their obedience training sometimes. Bloodhounds do make loyal, funny, and entertaining companions. Update: Sniffy was sent to Bloodhound College with the Virginia Dept of Corrections. They found that Sniffy doesn't Sniff - he'd much rather be someones companion on the sofa. At this time, Sniffy is not available for adoption.
Update: October 2014: Literally, overnight our Sniffy became extremely ill. It was obvious that he was in tremendous pain, and within less than 12 hours became almost unable to walk, stopped eating, and was hypersensitive to all touch. Sniffy was rushed to our veterinarians where he fought for his life for 3 days. The tests confirmed an autoimmune disease - - not completely definited, but appears to be a form of immune deficient polyarthritis. Sniffy's condition is currently under control - - but his veterinary bills total over $1,000. Donations are needed at this time. Please - he's only 3 1/2 years old - we just couldn't let him die.
