Breezy, 2-1/2, is a 50-pound spayed female black and tan coonhound mix. She is sweet girl with a lot of enthusiasm. Breezy graduated from the Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho program in March 2015, so she has had a lot of solid training in her past. She will do best with an owner who will keep reinforcing all of that good behavior. True to her hound heritage, Breezy loves to put her nose to the ground and run long distances. She can get distracted by her environment easily, so she will need a home with a secure yard and will need to be kept on leash when not in a fenced yard. Like many hounds, Breezy can be vocal and should not be left outside where she will upset the neighborhood with her long bays. Plus, this girl is very creative at finding escape routes. She’ll need an active owner who can provide the exercise that she needs. Breezy is very social, though she will guard her food and high-value items from people and other dogs, so she would do best in a home with children over age 12. She would probably enjoy a social canine companion, but will need an owner committed to managing her during mealtimes and when giving her treats. She needs a home without cats.
