Smokey Robinson is one cool dude. And handsome, too! He is a 2 year old, 64 lb purebred Bluetick Coonhound. Coonhounds are known for their great demeanor and loving nature. They are bred to be hunting dogs, so Smokey will need a home where he will get plenty of time in the great outdoors, able to smell and sniff to his heart’s desire. Smokey has beautiful eyes, soft long ears and a striking appearance. It doesn’t take long to realize he’s a special guy.
“Smokey Robinson is one of the sweetest, kind-hearted dogs you’ll ever meet,” says his foster parents.
Smokey loves other dogs, his people, and food. He’s very calm and mellow at home, enjoying long naps whenever he’s not outside.
In the park, Smokey loves to play with other dogs, then go for a long hound sniff-about. He can be timid meeting people for the first time but warms up very quickly. Once he knows you, you’re in for life!
Smokey doesn’t like loud noises or a lot of commotion so small children and crowded areas make him nervous. Despite not having any training before, Smokey has learned commands quickly, is 100% house trained and doesn’t like to be on the furniture.
Smokey needs a calm home with people, and would do well with another dog who will be in his “pack.” Long walks (or jogs) with lots of time to sniff around and a yard would make this special guy very happy. We think Smokey is a true “catch,” and can’t wait to see who his adopters will be!
