Huey is a lovable male coonhound dog currently residing at Mutts in a Rut Rescue, Inc.
Huey loves other dogs. He has had all of his shots, and he is neutered. Huey is already house-trained.
Notes from Huey's caretakers:
Huey is just under two years old and about 95 pounds. Sadly, Huey lived the first year-and-a-half of his life likely outside at a breeder. He was never socialized with people. Huey loves other medium- and large-sized dogs and lives with one of our trainers who does have a small dog. After regular monitoring, Huey is now fine with the small dog, but any socialization between Huey and any new small dog will require some work. Huey does not enjoy being touched beyond necessities. He will just stand there for vetting or grooming needs if he is on leash. If he is not on leash, he will run. Huey is very food-driven and will come up to get a treat but does not want to be petted. It will take a very patient and specific family/home to help Huey thrive and continue to improve on his fears.
