Adoptable pet spotlight: Rand

Are you looking for an active, intelligent pup to add to your family? Meet Rand! This handsome Bluetick Coonhound is looking for a family through Secondhand Hounds.

Rand is looking for a home in MN!

Rand is very intelligent and needs to exercise his nose drive daily. He goes to a smaller off-leash dog park where he can track, run, play and meet other dogs for an hour every day. With this routine, he is the most relaxed guy you could ever meet. This makes him well balanced and willing to chill the rest of the day.

I have found that just yard exercise, dog play and walks are not enough for this hound. He needs a committed family to seeing that he gets mental stimulation and an off-leash run every day.

He does have a little separation anxiety when you first leave, but he settles down very quickly. Another housemate would make this less stressful. He is not kenneled, but he is contained so he cannot counter surf. At night he sleeps on his bed in our bedroom and is content. He loves being near his people and likes kids. He is big and active, so small ones would have to be monitored. It would be easy for Rand to unintentionally knock them over.

Rand is an approximately two-year-old Bluetick Coonhound who was found as a stray in Missouri. He is house-trained and dog and kid-friendly, although he is not cat-friendly. He weighs in at 53 pounds. Rand is currently fostered in the Twin Cities area.

Rand is available for adoption through Secondhand Hounds in Eden Prairie, MN. If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an adoption application on the Secondhand Hounds website. You can also see more about Rand here.
