Hi my name is Ricky and I am told I am a Treeing Walker Coonhound. I love to smell smells, chase tennis balls, chew on my Kong, and to snuggle while have my floppy ears rubbed. I am looking for an adopter who understands that us hounds are smart but stubborn, and who can appreciate my beautiful singing voice. My previous owners let me eat whatever I wanted, so I have a few pounds to lose but so far it’s been easy because I love to go on walks. I have lived with kitties in the past, but my foster kitty doesn’t like dogs, and though I’m very curious I respect her space. I have not spent a lot of time around other dogs but I’m anxious to be friends with them. When I see them I try to get as close as possible and I sing them my song, so I don’t understand why they don’t like me. I’m going to need an owner who can teach me a different way to approach them that will help me make friends.
