Abby A - Adopted on 10/6/2020

Age:  About 8 years
Gender:  Female
Breed:  Bloodhound Mix


Abby's foster mom describes Abby as "a gentle, noble creature who is fun and just so silly." She says Abby has lovely house manners, is completely house trained, and is comfortable in her crate. Her favorite activities are eating, walking, getting back scratches, and sunbathing on the deck. Abby would love a large fenced back yard where she can sniff, lay quietly and sun herself, but she could be okay with a small backyard and lots of daily walks. She loves short and long walks and is happy to accompany you on as many as you are willing and able to take.

Being a bloodhound, Abby loves to put her nose to work. She will pull a bit on the leash when she picks up a scent, due to her nature as a bloodhound, but overall walks very well otherwise. Her foster mom is petite and has no trouble controlling her. Abby is not a big barker but she does let you know when somebody is at the door.

Abby is very smart and is eager to please. To keep her handsome coat in top shape, she enjoys a daily brushing. This lovely lady would be a great companion for an active person or family with kids 10+ who enjoy walks, hiking, and outdoor adventures.
