  Trooper, ~ 5 months Male Basset Hound / English Bulldog  Mix
Trooper Trooper

Update: We have moved Trooper to Coming Soon because he needs a few weeks still to gain his confidence in life so watch to see when he is available.Trooper is a really sweet 5 month old Basset Hound mix. He has been in foster care in Indiana ever since he was a very young pup. He is an outdoor nature lover, having spent many hours taking long walks through the fields and woods with his foster mom and all the other dogs. Trooper loves all dogs and enjoys playing at the waters edge. He is shy on introductions so will need a gentle adopter. He likes cats but likes very much to aggravate them in playful ways. He has lived with two very tolerant cats. They have shared the same bed on several occasions. He enjoys toys and chew sticks. He would be great with another dog to show him the ropes and build his confidence. Small children might be too much for him unless it is a quiet household with a very gentle child. He loves fresh chicken and beef or venison -- these are favorites mixed with his dry kibble. House training came easy for him. He will sleep through the night after being let out before bed, usually 9 pm. Trooper will give kisses and licks once he feels close to you. He is a really special pup who craves attention. A fence is required for Trooper as he does not have good recall yet but is learning "Let's go" for his come command. He is not leash trained as it was not needed where he stayed on the expansive farm. With patience and kindness, he will learn. He does well riding in the car although he does not go that often. No car sickness when he has ridden. He is not a barker but he is sure to let you know if something is amiss. This little guy will be a grand addition to any happy loving family. Please fill out our online application so that we have your information when we come to meet him. He is available after 3/6/13.
