Adoption Fee: $300
This sweet young, handsome boy is a great size and only about 35lbs. He gets along with everyone he meets. Once you meet him you will fall in love with his gentle playfulness and charming nature. He is a super soft cuddle bug and can rest his head in your lap for hours on end if you pet him. He is social fellow and doesn't know a stranger. He is good with kids as well yet older ones would be best as he could accidently knock over young children.
Are you looking to get more exercise starting in 2023? Bronco is still young and has playful energy. He does not require a fenced in yard but does require to be walked several times per day. He is very good on the leash, and a great companion if you walk or jog. He could be a pup that could live in an apartment or condo with the proper amount of outside time. He is also a fairly quiet guy, but we are currently working on his crate training due to his barking when left alone in the crate. He is a great walker and will occasionally pull if he sees a squirrel or rabbit. With that said, if you have 6ft+ solid fence that he could run and play in; he'd love that to burn off his happy energy. Bronco would really like an active family, likely another dog to play with regularly, and a family that likes to snuggle, pet and love on him frequently.
He loves all kinds of toys and wants you to spend some time each day playing together. He shares his toys nicely with others and just another way he demonstrates his gentle demeanor. He can be a little curious and clumbsy with his long legs and hound nose...it's very cute.
He loves playing with other dogs. He does not require another dog in the home but it would be fun if he had a furry friend or got to hang out with other pups frequently. He has foster dogs and likes them very much. He has not been cat tested but our guess is he would chase them if they ran. He may do ok with dog savvy cats but that is undetermined. He is also a good companion in the car and is pretty chill.
He isn’t super fond of the crate, but once in it he usually settles down pretty quickly. Just give him some high value treats to help him get in and get settled. He would just much rather be hanging out close to you. Like many hounds, he is curious by nature and likes to check everything out. Just keep an eye out or he may get into things he thinks are fun. He will do a little counter surfing if you aren't keeping an eye on him..."his nose just gots to knows." We are working on our boundaries, and he is responding very quickly to the training.
DOB 11/10/2019, male Hound mix.
