Tom

Treeing Walker Coonhound

4 years, 4 months
Large  |  Male

York, SC

We believe Tom is about 2 years old as of January, 2015 and weighs 54 pounds. We rescued him from a high kill shelter on his last day. Tom loves every person he has met and is an active, playful guy. He is a working dog so, he will need and active family to take care of his exercise needs. He will also require a fence to adopt. He also gets along with other dogs and walks on a leash. Tom is neutered, heartworm negative and current on shots, heartworm and flea prevention.
Treeing Walker Coonhounds are loving, intelligent, confident, and enjoy interacting with humans. They make a splendid companion dog for an owner who understands the characteristics of the breed and is willing to work with their in-bred nature as a hunting dog. On the scent, they are tireless, alert, and intense. At home; they are mellow, sensitive lovers of comfort. They like having their own kennel or other space into which they can retreat at will, if provided with pillows and blankets, as they love to nest. Owners have noted that "getting a Walker hound out of a bed, off a couch or away from a fireplace will be a feat in itself." Treeing Walker Coonhounds get along exceptionally well with other dogs and with children. Walker Coonhounds are very rewarding companions with effective training. Substantial time for daily exercise and interaction is also necessary. If the hound is kept as a pet and not trained, even the most loving, well-behaved Walker cannot be allowed off-leash in an area without a high fence. A secure yard alone will not provide the long walks, intense exercise, and "adventures" they require. Their nature is to run freely and for great distances, and they can be oblivious to commands when trailing a scent, much like a beagle or basset hound.
