Adopt Dickens a Treeing Walker Coonhound in Missouri | Tuesdays Tails


This handsome young fellow is Dickens.  He's a 2 year old tricolor Treeing Walker Coonhound.

Staff and Volunteers at the Humane Society of Missouri St Louis City animal shelter report that Dickens loves people.  He's still full of lots of puppy energy.  Dickens loves being outside to explore and take in all the smells.  He walks nicely on a leash and already knows how to sit.

According to Dogster:
Treeing Walker Coonhounds are high-energy, hardworking canines with an excellent sense of smell and keen intelligence.  Somehow, in spite of powerful hunting instincts, they manage to be relatively gentle and relaxed in the home.  Treeing Walker Coonhounds are very patient and playful with children and they can be quite friendly with new people. 

Take a look at Dicken's adoption video and then give HSMO a call at 314-951-1562.  Dicken's animal ID number is A570170.



Since 1870, the Humane Society of Missouri has been dedicated to second chances.  They provide a safe and caring haven to animals - large and small - that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.  Their mission is to end the cycle of abuse and overpopulation, assist in creating lasting relations hips between people and animals, offer world-class veterinary care, plus offer pet obedience and behavior programs.  HSMO operates three animal shelters in the St Louis, Missouri, area, plus Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, for abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, chickens and other farm animals.

We are participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs.  This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.  Find a pet at your local animal shelter or rescue and join us!  Please help spread the word about these beautiful animals via social media and let's find them forever homes!

  1. Bailie and I are excellent hunters and scent hounds, but unless there is a critter around, we are totally mellow too. Hope he finds a home soon!
