Robyn came to rescue with her sister, Leerick. They came to care from a place where they were not socialized and not given any real life experiences. They have come a long way since entering rescue care and are ready for life's newest adventures with their new furever humans!
Sweet girl, Robyn, has never had her own human. She is super excited to find one! She would love a home with a dog (or two) her size or not a whole lot smaller (no small dogs, please). She does best with laid-back females, and most males. Being a hound she is a little too interested in cats and would likely be better in a home with no kids. She is, however, good with kids and will be fine with children who are dog savvy around large breeds like Coonhounds. She is big and likes to romp still so kids 12+ might work best for her.
Robyn is great with being brushed, having her nails trimmed, and all the pokes and prods at the vet's. She's a very nice girl, well-behaved and polite. Her biggest quirk is her lack of leash manners. Typical of a hound, she follows her nose - left, right, zigzag, pullpullpull, over here, back there! Someone who has large hound experience and can work with her (with positive reinforcement training) on her skills is needed. She does though enjoy her walks. She only needs an hour or so walk per day, she's not overly active and needs moderate exercise. A big yard (fully fenced and secure is a MUST, she is a hound) she can play in would benefit her greatly as well. She does not like to be out alone though, and if you won't come outside and sit with her, she will run out and potty and then run right back to the door.
She is well-behaved and not destructive, however currently she is not alone for long periods of time. Someone home days at least part time might work better for her than being alone all day. Robyn will be shy with new people when she first meets them but only needs a small amount of time before warming right up. Once she does, she is a lovely, affectionate girl who loves to snuggle on the couch with you to watch TV or take a nap.
Robyn loves her toys and loves to disembowel each and every one of them. In her eyes an afternoon of Stuffy Murder and Mayhem is the BEST DAY EVER. Be prepared to provide lots of toys or learn how to sew!
She will guard her food (and bones) from other animals (NOT from humans). To avoid issues with other animals in the home, she can be fed in her crate (or in another room/area), and then pick up the bowls when they are done. Not leaving high value treats like bones on the floor unsupervised also helps eliminate guarding issues. She has never bitten another animal, or really even growled about it, she just gets stiff and you can tell she is very uncomfortable with animals around while she is eating/chewing a bone. Given her history, the place she came from, we are not surprised this is an issue though. Food is often scare in places like puppymills.
Typical hound, she is both stubborn and very vocal. For those who love that baying hound sound, she is perfection! Truly she is an all-around nice girl; affectionate, friendly, gentle taking her treats, well-behaved, gives clear "I need to potty" signals.
