Zanezane 2zane 1zane 120180309_152423


NAME: Zane
BREED: Black and Tan Hound mix
AGE: Young, probably about 1 year old
HEALTH: Neutered, fully vaccinated, chipped
BEHAVIOR: Loves all humans, other active dogs.
Meet Zane! He appears to be a young Black and tan Coon hound/Shepherd mix. He weighs about 50 lbs.but could stand to gain a few. (He is not finished growing. ) He is long and lanky and runs like lightning. He enjoys chasing balls and playing tug of war . He does not care much for being crated but he does settle down after a few minutes.. He LOVES his human and wants to be as close to them as he can be.... and as often as possible. He's very clingy and bonds quickly. He enjoys playing with other high energy dogs but would probably be fine with a human that exercised him regularly,( he would be a great jogging buddy).Though he plays well with other dogs, he can sometimes be too rough so dogs his size and energy level are best. He is house trained and walks nicely on leash. He has been around cats and does not seem interested in them. He wants to be the center of attention and gets jealous if you acknowledge another dog so even though he enjoys having canine playmates, being an only pet would probably make Zane very happy too! He is a little bit leery of strangers at first but loves people in general. He thinks he's a lap dog and loves to climb up and cuddle every opportunity he can. If you are looking for a very sweet, high energy , devoted dog then this is the perfect dog for you.

Hi I'm Hallie! I am an 8 year old female black lab mix girl. I'm very active and healthy for my age. I'm not too big, only about 50 pounds. My previous owner became ill and was no longer able to care for me. I LOVE to run in a big yard. I love my humans but am a little cautious of other dogs .I am currently in a foster home in Massachusetts with other dogs and do ok with them... however I would also love to have all of the attention to myself. I need a home with someone who is dog savvy and can help me with my ongoing training. I am looking for a laid back house where I will have people around most of the time, I want nothing more than to hang out right by your side. So what do you say? I am the girl for you?
