Howdy, pals! My name is Pfeifer, and I am on the hunt for a loving family who enjoys the finer things in life like a long walk to sniff all of nature's sweet scents, some playtime with a variety of toys, and car rides to see the big, beautiful world. I joined the Fetching family after being rescued from a large breeding operation; I was one of more than 80 dogs who were tethered to trees! As you can imagine, I am greatly enjoying my new, comfy life and am learning so much about being a loved family member. I am even starting to figure out cuddling, and my foster momma says my excitement for human affection is super cute and a joy to experience.

I get along great with other doggies and love to play with them. I am potty and crate trained, and I am making great progress on my other house manners - I am learning not to counter surf for snacks, but I respond well to corrections and reminders. I am a smart guy and would thrive with a family that will help me learn to be the best boy around by signing me up for training classes. If you are ready to rock all the time with a handsome hound dog, please fill out an adoption application today!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
