Ruby is a very affectionate puppy. She likes to help clean - chasing the shovel and broom and helping with the wheel barrel. She broke her tail when she was quite young. Unfortunately we didn't catch it in time to get it set, so she has a bend about 1/2 way down her tail. We have started some obedience primarily sit and come. She has also run a few short tracking tracks. Her grandmother has an AKC TD (tracking dog) title. I'm using her uncle for search & rescue. She is line bred - father/daughter. She has been vet checked and is up to date on her shots and worming. Bloodhounds need to be in a fenced area or on a leash when outside, especially if not supervised. Their nose will get them in trouble quickly and they can travel miles in a very short time. If you have never owned a bloodhound we highly recommend that you read about them before making a purchase.
