My name is English Spot. I think I am a little over 4 years old and weigh around 50 lbs. I am quiet and housebroken in my fosters home. I like other dogs and cats but don't really know how to play with them so I ignore them. I am at my happiest when on the move as is evident in the videos below. True to hound dog behavior I like to explore and will wander off if left alone and not come back on my own. So an ideal home for me would be with an active individual or family with older dog-savvy kids, a fenced yard and another dog who is willing to teach me how to trust, play, and relax. It will take me sometime to build a relationship of trust so I hope my future person is very patient with me. I am a low maintenance, low to medium energy dog but still need to stretch my long legs and get exercise. You can see how much I love to run in the 3rd video.🐾🐾

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
