Trivet - White Plains, KY (1/12/20 still avail)
Meet Trivet!! This sweet guy is a 10 yr old, 60 lb, neutered male hound dog.
In June of 2013 Trivet was laying in a pasture on my farm. One of his back legs was pointing almost straight up and I thought he was cleaning himself. About 2 months later I was able to capture him and find out what was really wrong with his leg. He apparently had been struck by a car or truck and it separated his hip and spun his leg around. Of course it was too late to repair it at that time and the ball in his hip had to be removed.
As soon as he recovered from the surgery we placed him in a program called Death Row Dogs at a nearby prison. He was given three months of intensive training and rehab. Unfortunately he was not adopted at the end of his class. Coon Hounds in perfect shape are hard enough to adopt much less ones that are less than perfect.
Trivet is somewhat shy around new people in his life and needs a quiet home with as few distractions as possible. He's been here since 2013 and is very friendly and loyal to me. He will get along with anybody, he just needs time to adjust to his new surroundings and people. He does live with another dog here at the rescue which is a red Heeler mix. They get along fine with each other.
Trivet is definitely house trained and actually passed the AKC canine good citizen test while at the prison. Because of his injury he does have trouble with the sit command. If you would like to give this ol boy a good home for his remaining years please feel free to contact us at anytime.
