Our handsome guy, Hundley, is a very elegant Southern Gentleman. We met him recently at St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, in New Jersey, after he had been transported from a South Carolina shelter, where his adoption options were slim. Three year old Hundley was brought to our attention while we were attending a seminar, and we immediately invited him to our Rescue. We are suckers for a pair of big brown eyes.


Hundley held his own in the shelter environment, which can terrify some dogs. He was initially reported to be shy and timid, and it seemed that the chaos and uncertainty of his situation left him rattled. After unwinding a bit with shelter staff and volunteers, Hundley received positive behavior evaluations and, he came out of his shell as soon as he arrived here.

Hundley appears to be a stunning Red Tick Coonhound. He is a substantial, muscular dog at 50 pounds, slightly smaller than breed standard Coonhounds. He could stand to gain a few pounds and would be at an ideal weight in the 55 to 60 pound range. His short, flat coat is white and reddish-tan, with the reddish "tick" pattern that is characteristic of the breed, and requires minimal grooming. Hundley has a lean, leggy physique, with a proud stance, and all of the wonderful attributes of a Scent Hound.

Hundley has a laid-back personality and would thrive in a mellow atmosphere. He would be the ideal choice for an active single or couple, whose lifestyle allows for him to participate front and center. He would probably do best in a quiet and calm environment, with folks who would allow him time to warm up slowly and investigate his new surroundings at his own pace. While he is a loving and sweet dog, it seems that when faced with so much daily chaos, Hundley could become a wallflower instead of a shining Superstar. He craves a strong human connection and would thrive in a home with fewer dogs and people, so that he could enjoy the limelight. His ideal situation would be a quiet home with perhaps one other calm, well-trained dog.

We sense some shyness in Hundley's delicate nature. We have focussed on confidence building by activating his Scent Hound instincts. He enjoys leisurely walks where he can take in nature, but he can quickly adapt to a jogging pace. Hundley is an active dog who needs mental and physical stimulation. He has a moderate energy level, and would make a great walking or running companion. He would be a great addition to camping or hiking trips. The time he spends outdoors seems to thrill him.

Hundley has progressed nicely on his obedience training, and he has already passed many of the Canine Good Citizen tests, and has learned his basic obedience sequence. He is very treat motivated and easy to train. He may become occasionally distracted by the random scents of nature, but he redirects nicely and seems to enjoy his training sessions. Ongoing focus on obedience training will provide Hundley leadership and mental stimulation that he needs to thrive.

Hundley has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained, but Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is in good health and has recently been neutered. He has been vaccinated for Rabies and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitus, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, microchipped and is on preventatives for Heartworm and Flea/Tick.
