Jim Bob the Bloodhound

Name: Jim Bob the Bloodhound
Age: 3 years
Adoption fee: $350 (pre-paid by a donor)
Foster location: Fulton NY

Jim Bob was found as a stray in Arkansas. He was 30lbs underweight! The all-breed rescue he was at reached out to a hound rescue who could better help find his forever home.

Jim Bob is a big lovable goofy boy. His foster family is working on doggie manners and teaching him “personal space”. Jim Bob just had a dental done and several teeth removed. He also had some fatty lumps removed.

He needs a home with an experienced owner. He does weigh 100 lbs!
🔵 Loves playing fetch, bonus if it’s a squeeky ball
🔵 Knows how to sit and is potty trained
🔵 He is a cuddle bug, and will steal all the room you have on your bed.
🔵 Sits nicely when he gets fed and takes treats nicely. But will definitely beg when you are eating food.
🔵 He does not do well in a crate, so a sectioned off area is best. He hasn’t been destructive at all, he is just a crate escape artist!
🔵 Super easy going. He will stay in and watch movies with you or he will run a marathon. He will do whatever you want and become your shadow!
🔵 Loves car rides!
⚫ Has shown some signs of being leash reactive. He’s done well meeting other dogs in a fenced in area off leash.
⚫ Would do best in a home with smaller dogs or as an only dog. He’s done well with my 60 lb dog, but isn’t the biggest fan of my dog that is bigger than him.
⚫ He needs an experienced owner, who can handle a big dog. He needs someone who is willing to be patient with him as he gets scared going to new places.
⚫ He JUMPS on people when he first meets them, so small children in the home may not be ideal.
⚫ The nose controls him, so he does pull a bit on the leash.
⭐ Jim Bob is overall the sweetest boy once he feels comfortable around you. He needs time to decompress and build trust! He was a stray in Arkansas and has been bounced around, so I believe he struggles a bit to realize he’s safe.
⭐ He has acted differently in every home, so if you’re interested in him, but maybe have a bigger dog/don’t check all the boxes, it wouldn’t hurt to at least meet him ❤️
