HANDSOME

Our Handsome is that exceptional, all around family dog that is rare in rescue.  He loves everybody and has not flinched at all during a rescue process that leaves lesser dogs rattled.


We've been trying to piece together Handsome’s backstory, and here's what we know for sure:  He was found as a stray in North Carolina, and Animal Control Officers handled him with ease when they brought him to the county shelter.

The shelter vet treated several open wounds that suggest Handsome had either been a Hunting dog, or that he had been attacked by another animal in the wild. Either way, these are not signs of a good life well lived.

Handsome’s luck improved when the shelter transferred him to our Connecticut Rescue last month so that we could find him a forever home. 


Throughout the chaotic rescue process, Handsome has been a gentle sweetheart. He is full of life and personality, and at three years old, he still has a bit of puppy mojo. He can be shy when meeting new people, but after five minutes, he warms up and is like a kid in a candy shop, soaking up new experiences with sheer glee.  He is a super dog that would do well in any type of environment.

Handsome appears to be an American Foxhound, and he lives up to their lovable reputation.  He is a large dog, at a lean weight of 55 pounds. His short, flat tri-colored coat is largely black and tan, with white markings. He has a million dollar profile!

Handsome is a very gentle boy, and would be a great addition to an active family with older, dog savvy kids.  He is friendly and will give everyone in the family equal attention. Handsome is not one to play favorites, and he is very stranger friendly.  


Handsome could also join an active single or couple, who can provide at least one to two leisurely leash walks, so that he can meander and stop to smell the "roses."  Scent hounds are extremely easy to manage because the leisurely walk that engages their senses, provides much needed mental and physical exercise.

Handsome has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained.  Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He has been neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings.
