Someone dumped a male, intact, bloodhound on a road near my house. I found him soaking wet, cold, shaking, skin and bones. he looked at each passing car with a help me look. I pulled over to check his collar for a tag. No tags, so I took him home with me. I took him to the vet to see if he had a chip. No chip, and 2 weeks earlier, someone else came in with the same dog for the same reason. The vets office told me a general area that the other person stated they found him. Over 15 miles from my area. The dog was very clean with a couple of health issues. Starved, skin and bones, and ear mites.
I have followed all the laws as to finding his owner, nothing. So I told my husband that the dog is my early x-mas gift.
I have a 4 year old rottie, a 2 year old black lab, and this new guy. Lucky for me they like each other! I live in a rural area, and have a couple of acres. Lots of room for romping and playing.
I have named him Gentle Ben. He is around 2 years old, and trained. I am new to Bloodhounds and need all the helpful insights, tips and advice.
