Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound (short coat)
Weight: 36 lb
Height: 25 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/29/2012
Fence Needed: Yes, becuse once her nose hits the ground shes following whatever she smells! Nosework anyone? She's a great candidate.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to SC shelter, Owner could not contain
Special Needs: Bella Grace needs a dental - this should be done by end of March.
What kind of home would be best for me: Bella Grace needs a home where she can have some one on one special time. She adores people and goes looking for them. She has been through a lot in her life. A home with other dogs would do her well too. She is very, very friendly and loves to have other dogs around. Bella will need a moderate amount of exercise - and she loves to sniff so long walks with her nose down would be ideal for her. Because she follows her nose, a fence is must needed for her also; she hits the ground running with that nose! Even though we have not tried her with any children, her temperament is so calm and loving that we think older kids would be great for her!
What is my personality like: Bella is very laid back, she has such a loving side and loves people and other dogs. She loves to run and play in the field and have that nose on the ground smelling!! Like we said Bella has been through a lot but despite all of that, her tail never stops wagging from being happy and excited! She will need some basic training but she is very smart so she would catch on fast! Bella is a sweet and very special girl, and it would not take her long to make an impact on your heart!!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Very happy and excited
Tips and Tidbits: est Birthdate 2/28/2012. Bella is a hound and a hound is a single minded dog with the ability to focus focus focus on a scent. To know this is to understand a hound. They are not as multi talented as a poodle, but they have sweet and loving personalities. They need time to learn to be the house dog they want to be and understanding on your part that they have single track attention spans and anything that smells good takes priority in that one track mind!
Please note the shelter paperwork says Bella is 4 but our vet feels she is at least 8 - and she has had harship in her life.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
