Dog's Info...

Meet Clark: This gorgeous Boy is a Bluetick Coonhound/Great Dane (we think) and the vet estimates he is about 5 years old. Clark was found with his sidekick "Lewis" while exploring Kingwood unaccompanied, and was saved by a good Samaritan who contacted us. Clark is quite a typical hound - he is happiest when close to Lewis, however we are not sure they are a truly bonded pair, they may simply enjoy each other's company and may be able to transfer that bond to another dog in a new family. They would be happiest together, but that may be asking a lot. Clark appears a little more aloof than Lewis, who makes great eye contact pretty much immediately, while Clark takes a bit longer to look for input from people. He may have been "backyard furniture" in his past and may have had little bonding time with people to depend on them for decisions. That said - he likes people and is quite gentle and affectionate. He is quite talented at squeezing past a person in an open door, so he is looking for a secure yard with a family that know how to keep him contained when the front door opens, he's quite the opportunist. 

Clark is pretty calm and is looking for a moderately active home to include him in lots of outings, but more important would be another similar-sized dog - if not Lewis - for him to bond to. With strong hound-genes he vocalizes dissatisfaction so he shouldn't be left alone for long periods of time, he needs adequate exercise, mental stimulation and training to be happy and to curb his interest in jail breaking. Clark seems to be an experienced fence jumper and chain link fence under 7 feet do not contain him, so we are looking for a home with solid 6-7 foot wooden fencing and someone who is home a lot to monitor him. 

 

***Please note: All dogs are fostered in private homes of volunteers, so to meet a dog please fill out an Adoption Application so we may setup a private meetup with the dog or coordinate for an Introduction at the next general Adoption Meet and Greet , as not all dogs come to all Meet and Greets***
