ADOPTABLE DOG OF THE MONTH
M | 7 Y | Redbone Coonhound Mix | 46 lbs | Medium-high energy | Total flirt | Good second dog | Good exposure to dogs and children | Not cat tested
Meet RALPHIE! From Florida, this dude’s a total flirt. Not to worry though you can totally take him home to meet the folks because he’s also quite scholarly, loves the athletic life, and is good with kids! RALPHIE has daily interactions with children under 10 and though he doesn’t play too much with them, he’s super patient and will do well with continued supervision. He enjoys playing with his kong, dog puzzles, and hide and seek and ever the intellectual he likes being read to by little ones. RALPHIE loves his adults, enjoying pats! He's also happy to do his own thing when you're busy. When he’s out walking he loves charming the neighbours into head rubs. He’s met dogs of all sizes while on his leash outside, these encounters being positive. If a dog approaching acts aggressive RALPHIE will respond though this can be monitored and will likely improve as he continues to meet new pals. RALPHIE would be great as an only dog or a second dog in the fam if you already have a calm, older pooch! Having a medium-high energy level, we think he’d enjoy a nice park date or walk in the ‘hood with a buddy for some time to socialize. He’s a great walker responding well to direction and calming exercises will work to support his responses to cats and squirrels. RALPHIE currently enjoys living in a semi-detached house with a yard and though a yard isn’t required he’s likely to want more activity, possibly a nice run, in the warmer temps! RALPHIE is working hard to gain an additional 15 lbs … we wish we had that problem! He knows basic commands, is house broken, and is crate trained using it when he wants to rest. He will do well with reinforced boundaries. RALPHIE is highly adaptable to new schedules and does well on his own for up to 6 hours. Apply to adopt this flirtatious fella today!
