Hi … my name is Dani Rae! Read my bio to find out everything you need to know about me.
If you think I might be the perfect pup for you, go to www.allamericanmuttrescue.org/forms and complete the adoption application online.
Dani Rae has had an interesting first 4 years of life. She is a purebred English Bloodhound and her family purchased her from a breeder in TX when she was a tiny pup. She came into a loving home to be her Dad’s special girl. Sadly, her Dad passed away and her Mom was not physically able to take care of her. At that time, Dani Rae’s weight had climbed to 160 pounds because she was not getting the exercise she needs to stay healthy. She came to AAMR and we wanted to provide a better life for her and managed to get her into a training program with an agency where she was ‘worked’ daily. She dropped down to 98 lbs over a period of a few months and was the happiest when she was training and running up to 3 miles each day. Unfortunately, she was not able to qualify in some areas of her training and was returned to AAMR, at our request. The word from her trainers is that she would be an amazing search and rescue dog because she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES tracking … and she is good at it! The mental and physical stimulation makes her a happy, happy girl!
This girl is so sweet. Typical bloodhound, you will need to invest some time cleaning her eyes and ears daily … and she does drool when she gets excited. But she also gives the best kisses and she loves being with her people and working with her people! She would be a great companion for a hiker, trail runner, or search and rescue handler. She is a gem.
Approximate age/birthdate: Aug 19 2017
Weight/size: 97 lbs
Crate trained: YES
Personality: sweet, friendly, loves people
Energy level: medium to high … can chill inside and will run like the wind when she is tracking something
Fenced yard required?: YES … this girl is a working tracking dog and she will go nose-to-the-ground for miles, so having a 5’-6’ physical fence is required. She could jump a 4’ fence easily.
Does he/she jump fences? She has not, but she has the ability
Leash walk with manners: YES, but she is strong and will take off on a trail in a second.
Obedience training: Knows ‘sit’ but she sometimes she has ‘convenient hearing’
Riding in vehicles: RIDES OK. She actually seems to enjoy riding as long as she does not have to go into a crate.
Up-to-date on routine vaccinations: YES
Social with other dogs: She definitely prefers people to dogs but she does OK with calm, non-alpha large dogs. She is ‘too curious’ about small dogs and should never be left unsupervised with dogs under 20 lbs, especially yappy ones.
Social with cats: NO CATS
Good with children: Will probably be best with respectful, calm children ages 10 and up. Remember, she is bigger than most 10 year olds.
Adoption donation: $200
