This handsome young chap is Baby Bigfoot, a three-year-old hound x desperately in need of a family to call his own. Good with cats, other dogs and older children, he sounds like he would complement an older person or a family with a stay-at-home parent with the time and energy to teach this younger dog new tricks.

Famous Fido Rescue says of Baby Bigfoot:

Baby Bigfoot is an adorable hound mix about three years old. He is good with other dogs and cats, and older, dog-savvy kids should be fine in a quiet home.

He likes walking on his leash, and playing with balls and toys.

He has been in foster care for some time and because of this will need a family that is committed to working with him and a professional trainer as he transitions into family life. He has never had a family so some guidance and patience is all he really needs.

Baby Bigfoot has been through an assessment with a professional behaviourist, who says he needs love, commitment, patience, rules and boundaries. With all those in place he should be able to adapt to family life quite easily. He can be a bit scared in new situations or when he feels overwhelmed or the need to defend myself. One thing we know for sure… he takes protecting his family seriously, so could be a little confused as to who is an intruder and who is a friend. This is where your patience, understanding and a quieter home comes in.

He is a hound and as such likes to keep his nose to the ground so will need a fenced yard.

Ideally, Baby Bigfoot should be with someone who is home most of the day and committed to helping him work through his issues.

Famous Fido Rescue is strictly looking for Baby Bigfoot be adopted by someone within a couple hours of Chicago, and adds he is neutered and up to date on all his vaccines.

Go on, if you live in or around Chicago, find room in your home for Baby Bigfoot.
