Red is a very sweet boy. We live in the middle of 25 acres and he is allowed to run once a day with supervision. He has a big fenced in back yard and lots of toys. His favorite thing is a playmate (another dog). I think if he had another playmate all the time he would not need to run as much. He is a fast and strong. He is also very strong headed. Redbone has become more adaptable to indoor living with a family but Red has never been allowed inside. He has a very nice converted chicken coop for a dog house and he likes it. He goes to bed at dark and sleeps til around 8:30 in the morning with no barking after dark.
