Tim is a BCx cross (with foxhound? pointer?) born on 17
July 2007. He's an easy going, good-natured, best buddy
type who is playful and active but who is definitely "low
octane" compared to most BCs and definitely has an "off
The non-BC part of his breeding is apparent in his occasional
desire to go off and follow a scent, so a solid fence is
a requirement of his adoption, as are positive reinforcement-based
obedience classes. He's a fairly gangly boy who will probably
be on the larger side (50+lbs).
housebroken, good in his crate and the car, great with other
dogs (he can be a little shy at first, especially with particularly
boisterous dogs, but quickly warms up and joins happily
in the play), is doing well with basic obedience, is good
around horses and so far has been good in his limited interactions
Timmy learns very quickly, and is pretty solid once he
has something (he doesn't experiment with different variations
on a behavior a whole lot). He's a cheerful, good-natured,
snuggly dog who loves to play fetch and is always eager
to work with his human friends. He is always nearby, whether
following his humans around the property doing chores or
napping with his chin on one of their feet while they work
on the computer.
He should do well in a household with folks who understand
how to work with a dog who can occasionally be a little
shy in new situations and with new people. (He rapidly warms
up to everyone, though.) Very young children might be a
bit too much for Tim to be comfortable with, but it would
depend on the situation.
Timothy is being fostered in southeastern VT .
