Cole acts and appears to be a pure-bred Walker Treeing Coonhound. He has been an absolute joy to have around the house with his loving and laid back nature. He gets along great with other dogs and family members. He has not been tested off leash with cats, but he knows when the cat has been nearby and looks for him. Be advised he has been trained to hunt and will become very intense when he gets on a scent and will want to follow it. For this reason, Cole, will be best suited for a family with a large backyard and a tall fence and does not plan to leave Cole unattended for long periods of time. Cole would be fine being the only dog in a family as he loves attention and the comforts of being indoors. He has escaped once from his foster family but was easy to find by following his distinct bay. He was found at the base of a tree patiently waiting for his foster family, with his prey hoping we would get him and move along quickly. Cole is approximately 3 years old, altered, crate trained, micro-chipped, approximately 70 lbs. and up to date on all shots, but is heartworm positive. He begins his treatment soon and should be ready for adoption around the end of May or early June.
