Meet Boone Boone is an absolutely stunning young dog. We rescued him from a high kill shelter. We think Boone is a Plott hound mix, possibly Tennesee Treeing Hound based on his overall looks and ears. He's only a year old. He is 57 lbs of muscle and heart. Since arriving Boone has been a gentleman dog. He's really friendly. He's energetic, but it's not frenetic activity. For such a young dog, he is polite and rather calm. He's a little shy at first, which is probably because everything is so new to him, but he warms up quickly with a kind hand and a ready treat. Boone likes to walk and is already pretty good on a leash. He loves being out of his kennel and enjoys the companionship of his person. Boone will make for a great hiker. This breed is known for its stamina, endurance and agility. They can be all business and focused when working or engaged in training, but when at home they are mellow and enjoy the downtime. Boone is smart and alert. He will do best in an active home where he is physically and mentally occupied. He seems to like other dogs and seems to be cat friendly. Boone settles in and his personality comes out more every day. He is going to make for a wonderful companion and will be loyal to his people. If you are looking for a fun, sweet and active boy, not to mention incredibly handsome, Boone may be the one for you.
