Coonhound mix, male, ~8 years, 57 lbs. What a lovable character this boy is! Our best guess is that the handsome Bayou is a Treeing Walker Coonhound/Great Dane mix, but we cannot be sure, we just know he is a tall, handsome, stately fellow. True to his hound roots Bayou will sing to you if you ask, and he is vocal when he is excited, which is part of his happy charm. He does get excited when he sees other dogs and wants to greet them, so be prepared for a melodic walk if you live in a busy area. Bayou has a way of making his presence known, but when he plays with other dogs he is appropriate and social. Like most hounds Bayou is going to need a fenced yard as his nose often does his thinking, and while he is good on leash he is strong and prone to following his nose. However, when it comes to people there are few dogs more lovable and gentle then Bayou; he especially enjoys children. He is a sweet soul who is very eager to make his family happy.  Available from Peppertree Rescue in New York contact:
