Martin

Coonhound/Foxhound

Available for adoption!

“I may be blind, but I have more super powers than Underdog! My nose, my soft force field which keeps me from bumping into things (mostly), my playfulness (with both my Doberman mix and Beagle foster brothers), and my hearing: I know when the cattle are near the road. BARROO!
I can dance, too, especially when I have to pee: I hold it till foster mom gets me on leash and outside, then I do my business. HA.
I found the water bowl and a nice, soft pad which I claimed as my own the first day I came into my foster home. The nose knows.
Today, I was called a “beautiful” dog by 3 people as foster mom walked me around a strip mall and coffee shop near a busy road (but not next to the road). It’s true: I’m gorgeously handsome, body and soul. She says she wants me to adjust to different situations. The smelly salmon treats help (I don’t “need” them, but don’t tell foster mom – hehe).
I adjusted well to the Dog Park, playing and running all over, and met the little girls in the adjacent park with their Newfie mix. It is great!
We walked down the road, and up in a small field, where I lay in the sun.
I know where this home is cause I can smell it, hear my foster brothers inside, and go straight for the right door as foster mom says “home!” It’s the only time I pull on the leash!
I’m happy here, but would love a home with a real dog brother and/or sister, and hooman family.
I want to explore, but can’t quite get through the squares on the cattle panel, and then I stop trying when I hear foster mom call “LEAVE IT.” I’d rather stay in a crate in the house than outside in the kennel. We’ve tried both.
I need help getting into the car. I can’t see how high to jump anymore, so foster mom puts me in place on the ground, rubs my belly and chest to help me relax, then WHOOSH! she lifts me into the back back of her car, which is just my size (keeps me secure and comfortable).
I’m quiet, too, especially for a hound mix. Foster mom told our vet what a great dog I was, and the vet agreed! I’m a SuperDog!” Humbly submitted by Martin.
