Meet Mason

I’m so happy to meet you! My name is Mason and I am a happy, energetic 6 year old, 68 lb. neutered, goofy and loving male Redbone Coonhound mix. I am content to spend most of my days snoozing on my cot or lounging out in the sun, but I also love nightly back rubs and attention from my humans.

Unfortunately, when I was just a puppy, I had to be rescued from an abusive situation that arose when my first human discovered that even though I look like a hunting dog, I’m not actually very good at sniffing out prey, so I can sometimes be wary around some (but not all) men. But give me a treat and I promise to warm up to you and trust you completely. Even though I can’t smell them, I can see them and I LOVE chasing squirrels and chipmunks in the back yard. I would benefit most from a fenced in backyard since I will not hesitate to charge through an invisible fence. I also love taking walks through the neighborhood and in the woods as long as I’m on a leash. I’m very friendly and want to say hi to everyone we meet. Sometimes I catch a glimpse of something that looks fun to chase when out on a walk, but I am easily redirected and refocused on my walk.

I am extremely food motivated, am a quick learner and am very responsive to verbal commands, particularly if there is a treat involved! I am completely house and crate trained, although for space reasons I currently use a cot instead of a crate in my foster home. I am also completely socialized and love being around other dogs, both big and small. I have lived with other dogs and have spent time playing with my friends at doggy day care. I love to play and even make sure I play appropriately for size, getting down near the ground when playing with smaller dogs. I would do well in a home either with or without other dogs, but definitely no cats, hamsters, rabbits, etc. as they all look like something fun for me to chase.

I will gladly get into your car with a simple “up” command. I currently stay pretty close to home since I have a fenced in yard and live near walking trails, so treatment options, if any, for my nerves in the car have not been discussed at length with my veterinarian.

I am neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease and microchipped. I am ready and waiting for you to adopt me! Please submit an application so we can meet. I would love the opportunity to let you scratch my back.

I would prefer an active, adult-only home willing to enjoy long walks and hikes with me. I am not afraid of children and have lived with children in the past, but they can make me uncomfortable and I would just rather not share my home with them.

Mason is being fostered in Holden, MA.
