Meet Amos, a black-and-tan hound living under the guardianship of Helping Animals Live On in Phoenix. According to the HALO website:
Ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog….and although I don’t cry ALL the time I will let you hear my deep and beautiful howl. My name is Amos and I am a 2 year old Black and Tan Hound. I sure act a lot younger the way I jump, run and flail my long legs around. Needless to say I will need some training and a LOT of exercise to learn my manners but I promise you won’t get bored with me! I keep all the staff and volunteers at HALO on their toes with my silly antics and deep howl. I get along well with other dogs that want to have a good time like I do! My favorite thing to do is wrestle but I also play with toys. If your current dogs aren’t too active I probably would be a bit overwhelming for them and it would not be a good match. I am great with people and although I would knock down younger kids I would love to have older children to play with. I do very well keeping my crate clean all night, so housetraining shouldn’t be a problem. Also keep in mind I am a hound and I have a great sense of smell and boy do I use my nose a lot! It is a necessity to have a very good fence around your yard for me, because once I get the whiff of summer bar-b-q’s I will be off like a rocket! My adoption fee covers my neuter, vaccinations, de-wormers, microchip and collar with tags. If you are looking for a goofy and loving boy and have the time and energy to work with me then I am definitely the boy for you!
