"Gus" is an 18 month old Treeing Walker Coonhound who is looking for his forever home. Unfortunately for Gus, his family decided that they couldn't give him the attention that he needed and decided to re-home him. Gus is a real sweetie and loves attention. He is quite the cuddle bug and seems much more eager to please then your typical hound. He knows sit and down, and his recall is very good for a young hound dog. His Foster parents are working on crate training, and he settles down pretty well once he is in his crate.
He is however a hound with all that entails. He loves to follow his nose, and he can get vocal. He definitely has a big boy voice, more of a big bark then a typical "hound bay". He needs a lot of exercise and would not do well left on his own all day. He loves kids and gets along well with other dogs. He would do very well with another dog to play with, or would do well as an only dog. We haven't seen him with a cat, but we think that it would have to be a very confident cat.
Gus would make a great Tracking, or Nosework partner. He would do great with any scent activity. Just look at that nose, think of the things that he could find! The scent game possibilities are endless. He would probably do really well with agility too. He is very athletic, tall and lean at about 65 lbs. If you want a jogging companion, Gus can go for as long as you want.
Gus is going to make the right family a great companion. However his new family has to have the time and patience to help him reach his potential.
