I'm the biggest hunk in town! Everyone swoons over my rugged good looks, excellent temperament, and velvety soft ears. I love long walks with plenty of good sniffs (I'm part Hound, afterall). I enjoy a good snuggle with tons of scratches. I'm quite independent but I also love being around people. I prefer being outside, sniffing and snoozing, so a fenced in yard would be ideal for me. I have a lot of energy and strength when I'm ready to play so I would do well in a house with elementary age kids (or older). I'm very curious of other dogs, and I'm happy to interact with dogs my size or larger. If you have lots of windows for me to watch squirrels and rabbits, I would be very happy. Once you meet me you will fall in love!
