Aurora is a sweet and playful Hound mix who hitched a ride from Arkansas to find her forever home. Though she’s estimated to be 2 years old, there’s a lot of puppy in her. She gets the “zoomies” occasionally and will take a few laps around your house using furniture as convenient launching pads. She also gets into a bit of typical puppy mischief and will need supervision, the way a puppy does, until she matures a bit.
Aurora is housebroken and lets a human know she must go outside by sitting or pawing at the door. She enjoys going for car rides and meeting new people and other dogs. Aurora likes kids and even a good play session with a playful cat. Aurora does well on leash – she is not reactive and shows her hound nature by keeping her nose to the ground to make sure she catches every good scent.
Being a young adolescent hound, Aurora has abundant energy and needs playtime to be her best self. This could come in the form of an equally playful canine companion or regular participation in doggie day care (or both).
Aurora takes a day or two to pay attention to her humans (there are so many other things to explore!) but then is very affectionate. When playtime is done, Aurora likes to curl up on a soft cushion (or perhaps your lap) for a snuggle. At 32 pounds, she’s a perfect mid-sized dog. She does fine in a crate as long as she's had enough enrichment in the form of exercise and play.
For an individual or family who understands what a young adolescent hound needs and has the time and patience to provide it, beautiful Aurora will make a wonderful and loving companion.
