Have you ever considered a Hound for your best buddy before? If not, it's a GREAT idea. Please read more about this wonderful breed before moving on to the next doggy in the list! Solly is quite true to his breed:
Solitaire is a sparkling gem! He is a young guy at just 2-3 years old; however, he is all adult. This is a guy with a solid temperament - a calm, lay at your feet type of boy. Solly is a tall dog but weighs only approximately 55 pounds. He is a stunning Treeing Walker Coonhound and his beauty is not just skin deep. Sol is a loving dog who settled into his foster home quite quickly. True to his breed, he is very gentle with the foster's children and loves his foster mom and dad. He takes treats with his lips instead of his teeth, he is so gentle! Sol would love to play with the resident dog but she is an older gal who is not so playful. Being a gentleman, Solly leaves her be and they calmly coexist. Sol would love a playmate but will also do fine with a dog friend who is not interested in play. Solly does very well being crated for the workday and overnights and is solidly housetrained as he goes to the door when he wants to be let out and if his human doesn't catch on, he will come and get you! Solly only rarely barks. He was hilarious when trying to engage the resident dog in play (he's since given up) - he either play "bowed" and laid his head completely on the ground and stared up at her with googly eyes or he did a funny 360 degree spin move. Sol does the same move for humans when he's excited about food or training time. Oh, what this guy won't do for a little piece of cheese! Solly doesn't love to share his food with his doggy pals (who does?) so prefers to eat his meals alone. Sol is eager to please and very easy to train. He has learned sit, down, leave it, and is working on stay and drop it. Again, true to his breed, Solly learns quickly from repetition and now knows "time for bed" means to go downstairs and get into his crate! Solly thinks cat-chasing is great fun so would do best in a kitty-free home. Another thing Sol loves is to wander around the foster's fenced backyard, exploring and using that wonderful Hound nose. Solly would love a fenced yard to call his own. Solly is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Can Solly curl up at your feet?
