Want a happy-go-lucky furry companion that’s always ready for an adventure? Meet our Adoptable Dog of the Week, Hunter, a 2 and a half years old American Foxhound mix from Cheyenne, Wyoming. This gorgeous guy is neutered, up to date with his shots, good with kids and other dogs, and he’s fully house trained. Hunter is also a graduate of the P.A.C.K. Project with the Wyoming Department of Corrections.

Hunter’s Tale

Not only that Hunter is the most handsome furball you’ll ever see, this energetic doggie has extraordinary manners, too! In addition to being an easy-going, friendly pooch, Hunter graduated from the P.A.C.K. Project, which is an 8-week training program with the Wyoming Department of Corrections. There, he was paired with an inmate, who worked with him on skills training and leash handling. To graduate from the program, Hunter had to pass an assessment which required him to walk in a heel, sit, lay down, stay, meet a stranger, and ignore loud noises.

When it comes to his personality, Hunter excels in that department, too. This friendly foxhound gets along great with other canines (especially those who’d like to play with him!), loves people and kids, but gets a wee bit excited around felines, which is why a cat-free home is recommended for this fella.

Hunter is looking for an active family who will spend time with him, help him brush up on his skills, and develop his true potential. He is very treat motivated, so there’s no telling what cool tricks or additional commands he might learn with the right person by his side.

In the words of his rescuers, if you’d like “a running buddy, hiking partner, camping extraordinaire”, Hunter’s your guy! For more information, this tricolor beaut, visit Black Dog Animal Rescue.
