Meet Bristol! This precious Hound pup is only about 1 year old and weighs 40lbs. She is such a sweet and loving dog to bother her human and canine companions!
Housebroken? Check! Crate trained? Check! Good with cats? Check! Cute dog? CHECK! Do you really even need to read more to adopt her?? But in all seriousness, Bristol sleeps through the night without a peep and is fully housebroken. During the day she is crated and will listen when told to go in. She’s been around cats and has done fine, so no worries there either! Bristol has even been around children ages 8 and up and done very well with them. The only thing she needs to work on is getting to excited when Foster Mom comes home; she still needs reminders to keep all 4 on the floor when greeting guests.
Bristol is happiest with a canine buddy. She currently lives with a 6lb pup and she does great! Playing with dogs her size is her idea of a good time, but she can also mind another dog’s space if they’re too small to wrestle with. When meeting small dogs, she even crouches down to their level. Structured introductions are not necessary and Bristol would be a great dog park dog. When meeting new people, she can be a bit cautious, but it doesn’t take long for her to get over it and love on them. So far, there’s nothing that has really proven to spook this confident gal; new things make her a little nervous, but she’s over the hump in no time!
Even keeled is a good way to describe this happy dog. She plays well, and naps well, so it’s important she gets her energy out in order to do so. If you’re a runner, she’d be a great jogging partner! But playing fetch will exhaust her just as well 🙂 She’s a great retriever and will fetch the ball, run a lap around you, then drop it at your feet to repeat! After a good play session, she will hug and cuddle her humans and make sure they know that she loves them. Whether you’re in the bedroom getting dressed, the kitchen washing dishes, or even the bathroom… Bristol will be your shadow and follow you from room to room!
If you’re looking for an eager-to-please pup who can be playful AND lazy, Bristol is perfect! Llet her show you how loving and irresistible she is!
