Nickels (Hound)

Nickels is an 8 month old hound. We picked Nickles from a farm where the man breeds hunting dogs. We recently lost our other dog, Trump, to cancer so we decided to get another one right away. I know you can't replace an animal, but it has helped the kid's cope with the loss.


Nickels is very playful, he loves to run around and chase the kids. They play ball and tug of war. Nickels does not like to be alone yet, and wants to be outside with the kids all the time.

We're working on training him. He can sit and shake a paw. He is almost housebroken, but he is improving. We are working on stay, and come. He likes to jump the fence and visit the neighbor's dogs if he gets loose. Nickels is a handful, but he is getting better everyday. I have to keep reminding myself he is still a puppy even though he has such long legs!

There are two dogs that walk by everyday with their owner and my husband calls Nickels and tells him his friends are coming. He jumps up in the windows every time and knocks everything over, and leaves his nose prints all over!

You honor Trump and your love for him by taking in another pet to love. Nickels looks like a character, a cute and handsome character!


He sounds very smart. Best wishes to you, your family and your new fur-child Nickels!
