Hi! My name’s Bluto and I’m a 3-year-old neutered male Tree Walker Coonhound. Just like my nemesis, Popeye (just kidding…hahaha, he’s one of my best buds!), I bounded onto the scene of Lucy Mackenzie as a shelter transfer. One might think I am a villainous, but that’s all a mask. I am just as friendly and outgoing as the next guy! To be honest, I really have no idea how I got the name Bluto – maybe it’s because I am tough, and strong? (Or, I like to pretend I am – I’m a sweetheart that just LOVES to be around people!) I must admit, though, that I do have a boisterous voice on me when I get going, but can you blame me? Us hounds love to sing! Like my friend, Popeye, I need a little help and patience around food – I just get so excited when I eat! But, I am a quick to pick up on things, and with some love and guidance, I can go far in this world! So, if you have a void in your heart for a energetic hound like me, please call today to learn more!

Freddie is about a year and half old mix; American English coonhound, Bluetick coonhound, Shar pei, and Beagle. We are located in the Fall River, MA area but willing to travel if needed. He is quite high with energy and needs his exercise. He LOVES other dogs, he could play for hours on end! He can be a barker and it can be difficult to get him to calm down, but he just needs reassurance. He follows all his basic commands beside come, that has been a challenge. He definitely needs to be on a leash if not in a fenced in area. Fred can be quite anxious about new situations but tends to warm up to new dogs and people quickly. He did not do well in a crate, if anything it made his anxiety much worse, so we do not use one. We have allowed him to be on the furniture and his favorite place to sleep is the couch. He can be a snuggle bug but can also want his space, so we tend to let him do his thing most of the time. Fred does not like to be disrupted if he is sleeping, its best to let him wake up on his own. Fred can also be a chewer if not stimulated, so we tend to give him a Kong with peanut butter, yak stick, or bully chews. Fred enjoys being outside, he is perfectly content being on the run and laying in the grass sunbathing. He does pretty well with car rides now, but he can still get a little antsy in the back seat. Unfortunately, we live in a small apartment with an even smaller yard; walks, puppy play dates and trips to the dog park are just not enough for him. We think he would do great in a new home with another dog and a large fenced in yard. Fred has had minimal interaction with children, but a home without kids would probably be best. He needs an owner who can spend more time with him and another dog to be his best friend.
