Dodo is a large foxhound looking for a porch to lay on while you drink your iced tea! Completely house broken, also trained on a doggie door and underground fence. Knows basic commands. Does not get on furniture in the house. Completely healthy. We took Dodo in as a foster dog from a young couple who didnt want him. The only issue we have noticed is he need time to warm up to men. He will bark and posture at men he doesnt know that dont take time to be friendly with him. Additionally, he does not like a lot of ruckus, he gets scared. He is a bit skittish coming in and out of doors. We have chickens and he doesnt bother them. We have no experience with Dodo and kids or cats. Other than that, he is a very sweet, loving dog. He has a big hound howl on him. He chooses to be outside most of the time.
