found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
In true hound style, it should not come as a surprise that Bayou is an "A class" sniffer. She does enjoy her walks ever so much, and is many times on the lookout for a furry little creatures to spring from the bushes. Bunnies are exciting! (kitties not so much--she was scared away by a hissing cat while out on a walk recently).
While she has not shown much interest in plush or squeaky toys, she does enjoy fetching balls and chewing on bones. She has a cute little horse gallop and loves to play chase with squealing children. Bayou has been very responsive with commands, but needs a gentle hand. It appears as though someone has been too firm with her in the past.
As much as Bayou loves yummy treats, she has an incredibly soft mouth and takes treats very politely. She is so gentle that a three year old had no trouble at all feeding her. Speaking of three year olds, yes, Bayou passed the kid test with flying colors, that is if they don't mind a slobbery kiss or two. She showed a lot of interest with a young girl on a recent outing, and even broke out her latest doggy dance moves.
When Bayou's exercise and playtime needs are met, she is content to settle down in the house and snooze the hours away. She loves to "burrow" in a blanket to make her nest.
In our eyes, Bayou is a perfect dog, however, it has to be said that there may be some qualities that some may consider not so perfect. :) If you are a neat freak, you may opt to look at other matches, because our girl comes complete with wrinkles filled slobber, ears that drop into her water bowl and drip water all over the floor, and perhaps not the neatest eater. ;0 To many of us, this is even more endearing, but we realize not everyone feels this way.
Bayou will have you at "woof". She deserves such a special family to call her own, and oh how lucky they will be to have her in their lives!!
Bayou weighed 61 pounds when we saved her from the kill list.
