Adoption Fee: $300
Calling all HOUND LOVERS! If you know, love, and adore all the special traits of a hound, Clarence is ready to meet you! He loves to be cuddled and kissed, so someone that will hold him and give him lots-o-love is the match we are looking for! He likes to sleep in bed with us, so be sure you can make room for him!
He also has those traditional hound personality traits which means, he's sensitive and kind but has a little bit of a stubborn streak which is endearing. You know if they get something on their minds, or better yet, in their nose - they just might ignore you just a "little bit."
Clarence is doing well on his leash training and enjoys his daily outings. He has pretty much got the hang of run, walk, jog and different speeds and does a good job keeping the right pace. He could make a great compainion for your exercise routine. This boy has a lot of young pup energy, and he pretty much can play all day. He would be happy with a fun, furry, playful sibling or could be just as happy as an only dog as long his family spends lots of time burning off his energy. He is definitely looking for an active family as he isn't quite ready to be the couch potato, yet! On the flip side, when working during the day he normally just lay's right next to me. He's such a GREAT companion and what a WONDERFUL personality!
He seems to get super excited with our neighbors that has a son that is 2 years old; Clarence will run to the fence when he sees them and loves to get petted through the fence. Our neighbors have free roaming chickens, and we have a lot of deer around as well. While Clarence gets a bit excited when he sees them, just telling him 'No' Clarence seems to be easily re-directed. He also lives with several cats; so we think he would be ok with dog savvy kitties.
Clarence is doing well with house training. He goes potty immediately in the morning and before bed. We let him out several times a day to "do his business." Even though he is in a fenced yard, we stay out with him; he loves our company! Clarence is working on basic training and confidence. Right now he is still crated if no one is home or else he can get into a little mischief. He is smart and has learned how to get out said crate. We think he just doesn't love being left a lone so a home that has some family members home the majority of the time is probably the best be for cute Clarence. He does need some training and would need someone that would be able to provide this for him.
Clarence isn't shy about dashing to the door, so a secure home where kids are not coming and going all the time and parents know to be watchful and careful before opening doors, etc. is important. He wants a fenced yard ~4-5ft tall so he can play all day! He really needs time to run around off leash and just be a young, playful pup. It makes him so happy, and it will absolutely brighten your day watching him have the time of his life!
To wrap it up, we love him so much, so for us we want him to go to a home where he can have the same love and care that we provide to him!! He is a very special boy!
