AKC registerable. Very affectionate. Likes to check out new things. Started sit, heel and come training. Also started tracking. Up-to-date on shots including rabies. Recent vet check with everything ok. Line bred. Grandmother has AKC Tracking Dog title. I'm using his uncle for Search & Rescue. If you have never owned a bloodhound, I recommend you read about them before purchasing. Must have a fenced yard or keep on leash when outdoors. Their noses will take them miles in a very short time.
