Biography

Spot is a handsome hound that is driven by his nose; he wants to go go go! He showed up at our house and went through the local animal control / animal shelter for adoption. He has been with us for over a year. He needs space to run and lots of activity. Since with us, he has had 2 episodes of seizures that required visits to the vet. He is currently on medication and has been seizure free for almost 6 months! [because of this we use topical flea and tick medication instead of the chewable]
Pertinent information:
- he wants to run. He has gotten out of our fenced yard many times. He has a tracking collar we use to keep tabs on him. This he can keep his collar of you want it!
- he does well with kids (I’d say bigger than toddler- he is so curious and smells everything! He is patient but also not trained to handle children grabbing at him)
- likes other dogs!
- chases cats and hunts our goats if he gets out.
- unbothered by cows, horses, donkeys on our walks.
- wants to be loved. He wants to be with you. He does not want to be in a tiny back yard.
- unable to train him more than his name, come, and no. Doesn’t seem to be food motivated and would rather smell things.
- will wear a leash. We go for long walks every day, but he will also pull you and run if he sees a deer or cat.
- I love him. I’m so sad that we can’t keep him happy and that our goats, cats, and neighbor goats are at risk if he gets out. This Hound is special.
