“A day without a nap is like a cupcake without frosting.” — Terri Guillemets

Introducing Dewey! Who wouldn’t love this hound face? Dewey is two years old and weighs in at about ~46 pounds. He came to our program HW+ and recovering from a leg amputation. Living life as a tripod has been a piece of cake for Dewey thus far and it hasn’t slowed him down! He’s just about finished with his HW treatment and is looking for his forever home! 

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Dewey is housebroken and crate trained! What a good boy! You can even tell him “crate” and he knows exactly what that means. Given that he’s recently acquired “tripod” status, he’s still a little unsure of how to appropriately sit but he tries and it’s the most adorable thing! 

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Dewey currently lives with other dogs and cats and does well with all of them! He doesn’t love to play but will happily coexist with canine friends. He’s not a huge fan of over-excited pups, so definitely needs slower introductions to them. He likely won’t ever be a huge dog park fan, but would probably LOVE the opportunity to sniff around in one! He also does well with cats, but is a little afraid of the ones who swat at him! 

Behavior around People

For a hound, Dewey is pretty needy. He loves to follow his person all around and stay with you whenever he can. He is happy to laze the day away on the couch with you as long as he gets to take his stuffed toys with him. He is loyal and loves his person most of all. Just wait until you hear his greeting when he’s excited to see you! 

Exercise Needs

Though he’s got the nose of a hound, as soon as he is done sniffing, he’s ready to sleep! He’s the laziest hound dog we’ve ever met and we think that’s so loveable. He loves to sunbathe in the grass after he’s finished chasing a scent! 

Dewey’s got the looks, the personality, and the charm — all he’s missing is you (and maybe a fourth leg). Are you his missing piece? Contact us today!
