When Kacey was brought to Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue, she was in pretty bad shape.
"Every bone was visible," said foster parent Karen Gould, who has had Kacey for two weeks. Kacey has since gained a good amount of weight but could use another 5 pounds. She also said that part of the dog's tail had to be amputated.
"She can't run and play with other dogs yet," she said. The goal is to slowly get her active.
Her breed, the treeing walker coonhound, is associated with being good at hunting for raccoons. That's probably why Kacey loves to follow trails and go wherever her nose may take her. Gould said that Kacey's ideal home would have a large, securely fenced in yard because "she will stray."
Kacey is not completely house trained but according to Waggin' Tails she is:
- Up-to-date on vaccinations
- Good with kids
- Good with other dogs
- Walks nicely on a leash
- Has a moderate energy level
