Meet Track!
Track is a 4-year-old hound mix who is looking for his forever home. He was found as a stray and during his recovery, he found himself a little chunky. He will need an owner who can help bring him back to his appropriate weight. Track is a great dog who likes other mellow dogs like himself. He would do best as the only dog since he does have some guarding issues. It’s best not to feed him treats or food next to other dogs. He also can guard his toys around young children so again this activity must be supervised if he is around young children. We suspect this behavior comes from him fending for himself on the streets, of course this behavior can be managed with proper supervision. He is a loving and sweet dog who loves to go for walks and hang out on the couch.
