This handsome boy is 10 months old and boy does he have some legs! In horse country, CAMERON would definitely qualify as a Thoroughbred. Of course, Cameron's is another sad story. He was given to a family as a gift and they didn't want him. They basically ignored him for the first 7 months of his life. Because of this lack of interaction, Cameron is still very puppy-like!! But he learns a little more each day about good manners and behavior. Cameron likes being in the house with his humans. He likes to play, go for walks and play fetch. He also likes to cuddle and be petted.

Cameron is a very friendly boy and he gets along great with my other hounds. He is not very birdy but will look at a squirrel when given the opportunity. He does stay in a crate when he is not being supervised or when I'm at work and he does well in it. Cameron is very close to being completely potty trained. There have been no accidents since the second day he arrived. Cameron is very healthy, a good eater and up-to-date on vetting.

Cameron is very people oriented and would do well with children over 5 years of age. He really wants a home where he can interact and play with his humans. Cameron has lots of energy and lots of love to share with his new family. Are you that family?

CAMERON'S SUCCESS STORY 3/08

Hi all,
Just wanted to let you know that our newest family member was adjusting really well.  We renamed him Tucker since he's from Kentucky and he fits in really well.  He knows his name, sit, down, crate and come (most of the time).  He also knows where both of his beds are and will go there easily.  We are still working on off (he loves to jump and counter surf) and he is a begger.  But he shows daily improvement in all of these areas.  He is so cute and lovey.  He loves everyone in the family and is so happy to see everyone in the morning and when we all get home.  

He has learned the electric fence and has discovered that the back yard is great!  He is starty to show signs of being birdy.  Just today he was barking and running and looking like he was trying to catch some huge turkey buzzards that were flying overhead.  We are trying to teach him not to bark at everything in the woods, and I think he'll get better over time.  He is fast as lightning and will play fetch some.  He loves golf balls and Hailey and he make a game of golfing.  Hailey and I were playing hide and seek with him this weekend, where she would hide and then Tucker and I would go and find her.  He loved that.  

He loves to tear up stuffed animals and can filet anything with a squeaker.  The kids have learned to keep their doors closed.  He also loves shoes, as Hailey learned the hard way.  So we are trying to keep him supplied with Nylabones.  

He is very smart and I think he knows that he is in his forever home.  I hope to be able to train him to do some agility work this summer.  (After he gets all of the basics down of course).   

We are so happy with him.  Thank you all for all of the work that you did to bring him to our hearts.  The work you do in invaluable and I can't tell you how happy we are to have found such a wonderful organization with such great volunteers.  

I'll be in touch again soon,
Julie, Tucker's Mom
