Dog | Male | Age: 7 | American English Coonhound Mix | Spayed/Neutered

Red is a very smart boy and knows many commands (sit, down, stay, off, place, speak, spin, shake, high five, leave it, watch, find it, relax, hi). He’s extremely food motivated and loves to learn new tricks! He especially loves nose work and we often set up games of “find it” for him in the yard or around the house with treats or kibble. Red is a pretty active guy and would love a home where he can explore in a yard (he’ll also play fetch in exchange for kibble/treats) and go for runs or long walks with you. That being said, he also loves to just chill out on the couch and is a snuggly lazy hound, especially in the evenings. Red has always done well with boarding when we travel and attends a doggy daycare a few times per month. We’re always told that he does really well and they love having him.

Other Animals
Red has always been an only pet. He plays well with other dogs while boarding and at doggy daycare but would probably be best suited as an only pet.

Medical History
Red is neutered and up to date on all vaccines. He takes no medications other than monthly preventatives. He is a healthy pup.

Ideal Home
Red needs to be in a home with no young children and no other pets. He needs a yard to explore and be able to go out for regular walks or runs (once daily, but he'd gladly go more). He would be best for someone with dog experience and time to get him the exercise he needs.

Other Information
Red does have some anxiety and reactivity issues. He is leash reactive so needs plenty of space from other dogs on his walks. He also needs to use a Gentle Leader on walks or he will pull, he’s very strong! He can be nervous around strangers, especially big men or men with beards/hats, and will bark. It’s often easiest to keep him in his kennel or a separate room when unfamiliar people visit if you don’t have the time/appropriate setting for him to get used to them. Red also has recently bitten our preschool-aged son and needs to be in a home with no young kids under the age of 12.
