Toby is a two year old Tree walking Coon hound.
We are not sure what his background story is as he came from a shelter but we are thinking he was kept in a crate a lot, too much.
Toby can scale a fence and he does not like to be left outside alone.
He has great respect for an electric wire stretched across the top of the fence which we added—just for him!
He is super good in his crate. At first he peed in his crate at times but he has not done that for weeks. We think it’s because he had been left in a crate for too long in his previous life.
Toby needs someone really willing to work with him, someone who likes to have a companion and someone who likes hound~song.
Toby is good with everything. He loves kids at the adoption event.
He loves food – hound thing I think.
He is a soft dog = not rough and tumble. This boy has a gentle temperament.
Toby is super sweet and affectionate. Really nice pup.
This dog is not suitable for apartments, townhouses, duplexes or places where neighbors are close by because he is a hound.
Hounds are bred to have a hound~song that carriers for a long distance so hunters can follow them when they are on the trail.
Toby is no exception. He is best for someone who has distance and neighbors who are ok with an occasional serenading.
Toby howls when he wants stuff: attention, food, to go out, to come in. He doesn’t just howl to howl and he doesn’t do it for long,
Still, it’s a howl.
Toby is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
