***UPDATE: IF MASON IS NOT ADOPTED BY 4/31/2018, HE WILL BE SURRENDERED TO A SHETLER. WE CAN NO LONGER KEEP HIM. IF YOU ARE READING THIS POST, MASON IS STILL AVAIABLE. He needs to find a new home ASAP. He DOES NOT do well in houses with cats or apartments***Mason is a crate-trained, neutuered and housetrained cuddler who knows sit, down, shake and up. He loves the comfort of a down pillow and is very loving around children and adults. Doesn't really like cats much; the coonhound in him thinks they are prey. He LOVES other dogs, though and has a lot of energy. He and needs a place to roam and bark freely. When he's tuckered out, he's a giant teddy bear and snores like a full-grown man. He will do anything for food. Does get a little 'resource protective' when it comes to taking food away from him, such as when he knocks the trash can over or opens the oven to get the ribs I've been cooking. Would keep him, but his activity requirements are too much for our busy household. He needs to be with someone who will be home more than us and can give him the attention he needs.
