About Doc

Redbone Coonhound / Lab
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Doc is a 6.5 year old Redbone Coonhound/Lab mix. He's a great companion. He will always ask you to go outside, never chews furniture, does well with other dogs, does well on a leash, and listens to commands. Especially if you have a treat for him. He just doesn't do well with smaller children because he's a little nervous/anxious and sometimes protective of his own bubble or chew toys. I've had Doc for a year and a half now and before having a toddler around I never had issues. He has his nervous habits though too. He loves to lick. Everything. He gets nervous if you walk up to him or touch him while hes laying down. It usually results in a slow growl/grumble. I can snap him out of it by calling him to me so he stands up, but smaller children don't know any better. He's never bitten anyone (and I've pushed him pretty far personally by being in his personal space), but I can't take that risk with a child. He is best suited to someone with no children around. When it was just me and him, we had no problems. He's a fairly calm dog and typically only gets really excited when you come home or when visitors are over. He has Addison's disease, however it's very easily managed and I've barely noticed any symptoms. His medication keeps it under control well and it's fairly cheap. He does need a yearly checkup with a veterinarian just to make sure his medication is the right dosage and does not need adjustment. Other than that, he is a healthy pup...albeit a little overweight. I'm not wanting any re-homing fee or payment at all. I just want to find him a good home. If anyone can take him I've got 2 beds, collar, harness, leashes, toys, feeding bowls (with elevated stand), Furminator brush, dog shampoo and cologne, a nice flannel dog coat, enough flee treatments for 6 months, along with anything else he has. Also at least a few months worth of his medication and any remaining food/treats we have.
