At only eleven months old Butch is already a big dog. This handsome, young dog is in the awkward stage of his life because he is still growing. He is all legs with a lean body that will fill out as he grows.

Butch is a Black and Tan Coonhound mix. His breed is described as being easy-going, bright, and brave. It is fundamentally a working dog that can withstand the rigors of winter and the heat of summer. It works entirely on scent when it is tracking.

Butch is learning to walk on leash and is working on the sit command. His handlers feel he should be easy to train. They are looking for an active person that will enjoy bringing Butch along for outdoor adventures.
