    Looks like you took on a older animal. Good on you. Sure his and your family’s life will be better for it.

    A friend has one of these.

    Sweet, a rescue girl, does not bark, terrified by water.
    We have her over when her mom travels. There are pics of her on the forum.

    Welcome Buddy!

    He is only two years old. But he has had a pretty rough life so far. A failed hunting dog that got dumped at a high kill shelter in South Carolina. He is very shy and a little fearful. But he starting to come out of his shell and show a very gentle personality.

    That sounds like what my dog friend's likely past - found roaming around streets, pregnant. Got her puppies, and was a good mother to them, shelter said!

    I did read about failed hunting dog stories, or dogs just dumped at end of hunting season...

    Caution, they are prone to chase anything, anywhere!

    Have fun you guys.

    Funny, this is the anniversary week of my adopting our sweet, late cookapoo, 16 years ago. I am actually gathering digital pics to print and frame today!

    My friends had a failed hunting dog. Cost a fortune then spend a few thou on training iirc. It did pretty good on the first hunt but then they hit some hard times and didnt get out to hunt for awhile then the dog started limping. It had a cancer in the leg. They had to have it removed. So much for the expensive hunting dog.
    The dog lived out his years happily hopping around their 1 acre, getting expensive snake bite cures every few years. His name was lucky. Lucky for him anyway.

    Thanks for the new dog day and not another "my dog died day"
    My nieces dog disappeared sat night and now our little headstrong weiner dog, Daisy is gone this morning (mourning?) . She is the kind to just go out exploring but I'm kind of worried. The same night the nieces dog died We had an emu with a ripped neck and a dead goose. Not enough carnage to prove an animal attack but its defcon 5 out there.

    Happy new dog day - looks like he'll be a faithful friend and thanks for saving him from the shelter.

    This is our Scout:

    37c856895363a31e35ca28ac066d803b._.jpg

    He is mostly a Black and Tan Coonhound, but his mother was a Treeing Walker Coonhound (he's got a big white patch on his chest that my kids say is from where his mama kissed him). She was still at the shelter when we adopted Scout - she'd been abandoned while pregnant and had 13 puppies. We were very lucky to get this one. He's very smart, though quite stubborn. As long as he goes on a couple of good long walks every day, he's generally well-behaved, unless there are small animals around. Then he's all hound, and those small animals are running for their lives. Woe be unto the squirrel that unwittingly meanders into our backyard.

    His mother was later adopted from the shelter. Which is good, because for the first month we had Scout my oldest daughter was hitting me daily with things like "We can't leave Scout's mom in a cage, Dad. We just can't. They're family now." While it would have been extremely hard for us to adopt a second for space reasons, I completely agreed with her and would have gone back if someone had not taken her in.

    It's the ears. They just kill me.

    Congrats on Buddy. I hope he brings you as much happiness as Scout has brought us.

    Good lookin' hound. Good thing about hounds is they do take to obedience training well. If he's like almost all rescue dogs I've met he'll be you're shadow, hating the idea of being abandoned. If you take hom on walks I'd suggest one of those rope slip collars. Not so much a choke collar but it does help keep them for trying to run off after a squirell , rabbit or small fast moving child. Lol I needed one for a black chow I had the only leash - collar combo she couldn't slip out of. She didn't have a mean bone in her but off leash she might take off for 2 or 3 days.And she was likely to knock down kids playing with them as she didn't realize her size and strength.

    Hounds are very sweet dogs. But stubborn and yes they will chase. A Leash is a good thing. Thanks to those that adopted. It is a very good thing you have done!

    Hey guys have you ever tried cannabis as an alternative medicine for your sick dogs? I've heard that CBD Hemp is now a thing for dogs with arthritis, compromised immune systems, stress responses, aggression and digestive issues.Well they said it was pretty safe because of the low THC, CBD hemp won’t make your pupper high. I would very much appreciate any ideas and advice regarding on this issue on dogs using cannabis as an alternative herbal medicine. Thanks in advance to those who'll answer.
