Here is a bio by my foster parent:
Meet Darby, an 8 year old, male Foxhound. Darby is a friendly boy who loves nothing more than to sit by your side being pampered with petting. He loves giving paws and placing his head on your knee looking at you adoringly with his honey colored eyes. He loves and walks well on leash. He could care less about squirrels, rabbits etc. During his walks, Darby is delighted to meet up with the dogs and people he has come to know well; tail wagging and happy. Darby is quiet, does not howl, dig or try to escape. He travels beautifully in the car. He is a warning howler/barker only. Darby is house-trained, non-destructive, enjoys the company of dogs and cats! He can live with another dog compatibly, as he is in his foster home, but one should be mindful of territorial concerns with toys and feeding stations. I am also pursuing a quiet, ADULT home (no children), where Darby will be your main focus. Darby was subjected to a reckless home environment in an apartment, with loud music, traffic of people, changes in lifestyle and unpredictable situations that led to some biting conditions within the last year and half (2014/2015), before owner surrendered. When Darby came into foster care with me, he required time to trust and understand his new surroundings, and routine. He is approached with gentle, slow movements and spoken to with calmness and reassurance, so he understands the intent. He is doing very well and has learned to respect space/food/toy guarding, through "equal trading" and "wait, okay now". He is very smart! Nonetheless, Darby needs an experienced owner, one who will continue to offer routine and the time Darby requires, especially through changes with rehoming. Darby is deserving of someone who understands what it means to rescue and be committed to giving Darby happiness for the rest of his life. Darby knows the basics; sit, stay, give paw, lie down. Darby's home must offer a fenced in yard and where he will not be left for the duration of a regular 8-9 hour work day. If interested in Darby please email info@mississaugahumanesociety.com
