Sherman is approximately 2 years old, in good health and around 94 lbs. He is a sweet boy who needs a home where the owners are Basset savvy and work with him on some of his manners. He a young dog who needs a home where he can play, run and work off some energy. He has not been neutered yet, but will be soon and that should help with some of his issues. He has longer legs than most Bassets and he uses them to his full advantage by being a champion counter surfer. He is housebroken and uses a dog door. He loves riding in a car. He is ok with other dogs and cats. He is good with children but he needs to go to a home where there are no small toddlers or children since he does play rough and will jump up and knock the child down. Sherman is also very protective of any chew toys he is given (rawhide chews, rawhide bones, etc), and will growl and snap if someone or another dog comes near it or tries to take it away. He hasn’t bitten anyone but it is best to avoid the issue by not giving Sherman any long lasting chew treats. He also has developed the habit of chewing books, remote controls and other items he can get to in the house. Again, this may just be a temporary issue and once Sherman is in a home where he can routinely burn off some of his energy, he will probably easily trained to obey the household rules. He is a lovable boy that enjoys snuggling on the couch and just needs someone with patience who will work with him to teach him what he needs to know.
