Hi! My name is JJ the Wonder Hound, aka “Kid Dy-no-mite!”
A lot can happen in a year. In one year, I was born, abandoned, shot, suffered a broken leg and was rescued. Whew! Being JJ is a full time job!!
I am a Treeing Walker Coonhound currently being fostered in Springfield, Missouri. I came into rescue when I was found in a rural area, limping. The limp was the result of a gunshot wound, which resulted in breaking my leg. But, I am fully healed, and the past injury does not slow me down a bit.
I am up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and neutered. At just a little over 1 year old, I still retain some of the exuberance of a puppy, but I am slowly settling into the expected maturity of adulthood. Like most coonhounds, I’m a bit of a clown with a sweet disposition and a heart of gold.
My adoptive home will need a privacy fence, as I can jump a typical 4 ft chain link fence (I told you that my past injury doesn’t slow me down). I have been fostered with other dogs and with cats, and I get along well with both. A household with another dog that could show me the ropes would be greatly appreciated. Because of my size and exuberance, I would probably do well with older children.
I am a bit of a power chewer. I would like a good supply of appropriate chewable items, especially Nylabones and Kong toys. (I like my Kong treat dispenser, but my little beagle foster sister, Daisy, stole it from me; I don’t mess with her!). Your home may need to be proofed against the antics of a 70 lb toddler. I have done well when left the run of the house, but because my foster family has a doggie door (and I can jump the fence) I have been restricted indoors because of my chewing. So, I am currently crated while my dad is at work, which is not great for me, but I make it work. An active household would be a good fit for me.
If you’re the right family for a sweet, goofy hound, please consider me, JJ. There is never a dull moment with me in your life! DY-NO-MITE!!!
