My name is THE RED WIND.

I appear to be a female, blue ticked Bluetick Coonhound.

The shelter staff think I am about 5 years old.

I have been at the shelter since May 27, 2021.

Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
The Red Wind is a gentle, dainty, medium sized pup. She shows no signs of food aggression with the other dog in her foster home, and she seems to really enjoy safely being around cats. Her happy, wagging tail and up close, curious sniffs are proof. Once she's had enough time to explore a new environment, she welcomes soothing pats and scratches. She also does very well with considerate children. She is an extremely quiet dog who enjoys walking around and exploring at her own pace. We didn't think she had any energy, but one day out of the shelter environment, and she was having little bursts of playful energy that made her spin with excitement and chew on a rope toy. She likes to relax on a big, cozy blanket in a crate. She'll walk right in and lie down if you leave the door open. She may not enjoy long walks on a leash, but she is happiest frequently spending time sniffing the air and ground outside in a fenced in yard. She may have some Pointer mixed with her Bluetick because she will often lift her front paw, listen, and smell for something interesting in the distance. When she wants to go outside, she walks to the door and stares at it, waiting patiently for the humans around her to get the hint. She is more hesitant to go out after dark. A comfy place to sleep inside would make this pup feel safe and well loved. When riding in the car, she watches everything out the window, eager to see the world. Bath time was a little scary, but a towel on the bottom of the tub makes it less slippery and a lot less intimidating. This calm, cautious cutie isn't used to living inside a home. She is learning to go potty outside. With frequent trips out, she hasn't had an accident in her foster's home, but she is wearing a doggy diaper just in case. The tv is still a little frightening, but she bravely explores each room rather than trying to hide. Treats are more appealing than toys, and once she has gotten past her initial fears, the sound of a bag crinkling has her prancing over to check! She takes food ever so carefully from your hand, and so far, she hasn't cried or barked in her crate at night. If you invite her to lie down with you, she might fall asleep with her head on your leg just like she did with her foster mom. You may need to pick her up to let her know it's ok to come next to you, but that little bit of effort and some patience will be rewarded with a whole lot of sweetness.
