Meet Sierra! This beautiful brindle Plott Hound mix is only a couple years old which means she’s already housebroken and crate trained! She’s a pup that’s eager to please and is up for any adventure that is thrown her way.

Playing fetch and going on runs is what Sierra considers a good time. In fact, she’s a master at fetch! Throw a ball and she’ll catch that thing midair – she’s got hops (no joke, a 3 foot vertical)! As a hound mix, it’s important for her to have a job; whether that be fetch or something else, mental stimulation is just as important as physical exercise for this girl. She’s never met a stranger and is just the biggest cuddle bug 😊

At a whopping 60lbs, Sierra shouldn’t get any larger. She sleeps through the night and keeps her crate clean for a full work day. While she currently lives in an apartment without a fenced yard, it would make life easier for her with one. Now that Sierra knows how to go potty on a leash, life is much easier for Foster Dad, but a fenced yard still provides an open space for her to sniff things out and let out a good bit of that young pup energy that she has! When it’s time to go in her crate, she goes in without complaint and minds her manners.

Looking for a dog who loves children? Here you go! Sierra has been with little ones as young as 2 and all the way up to the teens. She is very friendly and happy with kids but is still learning how to keep all 4 on the floor when introducing herself. New people make her so excited though! Remember that thing about an energy outlet? Kids running around the backyard = Sierra exercising = kids tiring out = happy parents 😊 When it comes to new dogs, Sierra needs structured introductions to get her nerves out. At first she is unsure and reserved but once she warms up, she is friends with most dogs. Because of this, dog parks are not a place where Sierra has fun but doggy play dates with her well-known buddies are perfect!

Circling back to the whole ‘mental stimulation’ thing, Sierra is a chewer, so keeping toys around that are tough and indestructible (but stimulating!) is a good idea. She hasn’t destroyed anything she is not allowed to, but those $0.99 plush toys won’t last very long. Nothing seems to scare this gal and she loves giving kisses to her people. The more energy outlets she has, the more affectionate she is – she’d much prefer a game of fetch to a belly rub, but as she gets tired, she shows her love even more.

You can tell the wheels are turning in Sierra’s head and that she’s eager to please. Every time Foster Dad uses the command ‘sit,’ she immediately obliges with an additional paw lifted to show him how smart she really is 😉 With a job for her to do and regular exercise, Sierra is the perfect additional to any family!
