Barely Used Pets (dog)

Big Red is a 4-year-old, 90-pound Redbone Coonhound. He will sit, shake and speak for treats. He’s treat-motivated with that hound nose of his! He is house-trained and is learning to properly walk on leash. He’s a smart dog and will learn quickly. Big Red loves to be outside and go on walks. He is great with kids, but due to his size may be too strong for small children. He is up to date on all vaccinations and neutered. He is ready to find his forever home. Please come meet Big Red and see if he will be a good fit for you.
