Cole acts and appears to be a pure-bred Walker Treeing Coonhound. He has been an absolute joy to have around the house with his loving and laid back nature. He gets along great with other dogs and family members. He has not been tested off leash with cats, but he knows when the cat has been nearby and looks for him.
Be advised he has been trained to hunt and will become very intense when he gets on a scent and will want to follow it. For this reason, Cole, will be best suited for a family with a large backyard and a tall fence and does not plan to leave Cole unattended for long periods of time. Cole would be fine being the only dog in a family as he loves attention and the comforts of being indoors.
He has escaped once from his foster family but was easy to find by following his distinct bay. He was found at the base of a tree patiently waiting for his foster family, with his prey hoping we would get him and move along quickly. Cole is approximately 3 years old, altered, crate trained, micro-chipped, approximately 70 lbs. and up to date on all shots, but is heartworm positive. He begins his treatment soon and should be ready for adoption around the end of May or early June.
Hello there! I am a strong, 67 pound, fun-loving, 4 year old American Bulldog who loves car rides, leash walking and pleasing my human! I like to dance for my food and give really big kisses! I love couches and belly scratches and I even like bath time! I don’t like to be left alone in the yard, by myself, because I miss my humans so much, I’ll do anything to be with them. I’m really great at digging… by the way! I do enjoy being in my cozy crate when my humans have to leave. My foster mommy says I can’t be around cats, rabbits, or farm animals. And, small dogs remind me of the aforementioned so I probably shouldn’t have a little dog as a sibling.. especially of the bossy variety. But, I do like dogs that are more my size… especially if they love to wrestle like I do!
I really just want a family of my own so I can give hugs and kisses and make them happy! It makes me happy when my humans are happy! And, my smiles are contagious! You definitely need to meet me.. I’m a really cool guy!
