  Mugsy, 5 years Male Bloodhound

Mugsy is a very sweet 5 year-old neutered male purebred bloodhound who was surrendered due to his owner's illness. He gets along well and is patient with children and other dogs, although due to his size he probably should not be in a home with very small children. He is wonderful with cats, even sleeps with them. He is great with small dogs even lets a puppy jump all over him, but is afraid of bigger dogs. He weighs 118 lbs. and is a gentle giant. He is not a barker but will bay when strangers come near the house. He enjoys long walks, scratching behind his ears, snacks, and relaxing with his family. He likes to hang out and his favorite spot is on the couch. He is currently undergoing chiropractic therapy on his back. We had him examined by an ortho specialist and he does not have hip dysplasia, but more of a lumbar sacral issue for which we are treating homeopathically. He also has the entropian eyelashes and although we had him worked up with a surgeon, he is not scheduled for surgery as we feel it is too high risk for him at this point and also because he is doing so well on the eye drops. His eyes look great and do not seem to bother him as they were when we first took him in. Mugsy is a great dog who needs a loving adopter. He is fine if you work full time and does not get into your stuff and he can hold it until you get home. He is in a foster home, so please fill out an application to be considered for an introduction. Donations toward his medical bills are gladly accepted.
