Jimbo is a 6-8 year old, sweet, sensitive, gentle and calm foxhound mix who is starting to get the hang of living indoors and people loving on him. He does great with other dogs who are not over the top in his face. He would probably do best in a multi-dog home. Jimbo doesn't fully understand how to play with toys yet and is starting to learn basic obedience and how to walk on a leash. He would love someone to take him on routine runs and has done wonderfully jogging along side me on a skateboard.
Jimbo does great in his crate and will need calm, consistent leadership to help him transition into his new life. He has not displayed any signs of food aggressive towards people or dogs. He seems fine with cats as long as they do not run, but has not spent any significant time with cats besides a short meet and greet. He has a tendency to pull on leash when he spots a deer (high prey drive) and is learning that we can't smell everything when we are walking in the woods.
Jimbo is going to need someone to provide rules, boundaries and limitations to help him be successful upon adoption. He will need structure and consistency for the first few months to learn his new routine and it would be best is someone could be home with him most of the day to help him adjust. He will also require a secure fenced yard as he has the tendency to want to explore. Jimbo would not do well in an urban environment and would be suited in a rural or suburban home with room to run. He does great with taking food, baths, nail trimming, brushing and being picked up. He is cautious of close moving cars while walking, and scared of loud trucks and motorcycles.
