Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


Handsome Westley is a sleek 3 1/2 year old 55 lb Coonhound/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is so eager to please he’ll do his whole repertoire of tricks before you even have the treat ready! This droopy-eared chatty charmer thrives on structure and affection, and is devoted to the people who provide it. Smart and silly Westley LOVES his toys, and when he’s not playing outside he can be found lounging on his bed with a tennis ball or a bone in his mouth. He’s got the hang of the first part of the “fetch” game…he’s still working on the bringing it back part because he just has so much fun running around after the ball. Westley loves to chase, and due to his innate prey drive he should not be in a home with cats or other small critters.

Snuggling is one of his favorite things, but this fit fellow is no couch potato. Coonhounds and Ridgebacks benefit from mental and physical activity in order to be happy, and Westley is no exception. He loves hiking where there are plenty of new and exciting smells, and dreams of finding an active forever home who will engage with him and continue to teach him and take him on new adventures…followed by excellent happy snoozes at the feet of his humans.
