About Walter

Adoption Fee: $50
Treeing Walker Coonhound
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Meet Walter. He's a 4 year old treeing walker coonhound I rescued from a shelter about a year and a half ago. He has a pretty bad history from what I can tell, I'm just not sure the details about it. He's a very timid dog at first, but he just needs space. He can be very sweet but I would not recommend him around young kids. He has been around a 4 year old but not left unsupervised and he did very good with her but alone I would not really trust him. He should be with older kids or no kids at all. He is protective, but also a very scared dog being as he was abused in his previous family. He's not 100% house trained only because he has never been an inside dog. I have tried but I can't keep him knowing he's unpredictable. He would be a perfect dog for a single man/woman or couple. He loves toys (make sure their not too big he only likes small stuffed toys), and he won't rip them up. He tosses them in the air and rolls around with them. He needs a fenced in yard because he does love to run around. He has absolutely NO HUNTING instinct tho. He is a very sweet dog and he'll cuddle right up to you. He just needs to adjust, and to know he's in good hands & that he's safe. It breaks my heart to get rid of him but I know he deserves a much bigger yard, and someone who will devote time to training and teaching him things he needs to learn. He hasn't had a chance at being a dog in his short life, so please be patient with him. He has only known harm before I rescued him. He's a decent size dog, about 80 lbs or so, and when he gets excited he will roll all that weight right over you to get you to play. Walter just needs some more TLC.
