We are searching for a loving, patient home for this handsome boy! Deacon is a 1 yr old lab/hound mix who found himself homeless in a very rural county pound. Fortunately, he was rescued by BARK and ready for the next chapter in life - a forever home of his own! Deacon is a bit shy initially, but warms up quickly to his person. He is calm and friendly, and gets along well with other dogs. Deacon would do best paired with another playful, outgoing dog in the home to help him gain some additional confidence. He will likely need a patient owner who can help with him house skills and learn to be a family pet. He is very treat motivated and attentive, so training should be relatively easy. Deacon is approved for children 12 and older and needs either a 6 foot fence or an owner who is committed to leash walking him (no 4 foot or electric fences please). To meet this adorable boy, please complete an adoption application online at www.barkva.org or email adopt@barkva.org today!
