I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Higgs is a handsome Coonhound. He is 2 years old and came from a shelter in rural Kentucky. He was a stray and lucky for him he is more of a lover than a hunter so he may not have been missed. He has come to NY and into my home to charm me. He is all nose and long legs. At first he is afraid of new things. Noises in particular seem to startle him. I am not sure he was mistreated but it may be more likely he has more of a timid nervous Nelly personality. One of the things I enjoy most about him is watching his progress. When he first came 2 weeks ago his tail was between his legs, and now he is running in the fenced in yard playing with the other dogs with his tail wagging. He loves to play but loves to cuddle more. Hounds in general tend to like their creature comforts and this describes Higgs. He is happiest curled up in a ball next to my husband.
He is house trained but is not a fan of inclement weather and has to be strongly encouraged to go out when the weather is not to his liking. He is fine with other dogs, and cats. He is a timid loving soul who just appreciates any attention and love you send his way. He is a little nervous in a car but rides fine. He has not been a big barker other than to let me know when he has to come in.
