AGE: My name is Bubba, and I'm a 6-year-young "ain't-nuthin'-but-a-treeing-walker-coonhound" with a BIG smile.
PERSONALITY: Do you love the sound of the hound dog song? Me too. Unfortunately, not everyone does, so we will need some space between me and your neighbors, but with daily mental and physical stimulation, I won't sing quite so much.
HIGHLIGHTS: I need someone who is looking to go on long walks, and allow me to do what I do best: sniff! I may never be completely trustworthy off-leash, since I like to follow a scent, but I'm friendly and sweet-natured, so I'll make a great companion.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Hwy., between Talent and Phoenix, open 7 days a week.
COST: Adoption Fee: $85, which includes a wellness visit at a local veterinarian office and a free in-home one-hour session with a professional dog trainer.
