Cracker Jack


Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mix


Estimated DOB:






New to MLAR, this flashy, tri-colored, purebred Treeing Walker Coonhound is a beautiful specimen of his breed. His nickname is “CJ”, which is short for “Cracker Jack”, but it could also stand for “Court Jester”, “Constant Joker”, or “Coonhound Jewel” because this young fellow is all of the above. Like the confection for whom he is named, CJ is all sweetness with delightful surprises. For those who are not familiar with this breed, a good coonhound makes a terrific family pet, as the breed is known for its even & laid back temperament, its good natured & goofy antics, its affectionate personality, & its ability to get along with other dogs. CJ is no exception. He likes to tear around the fenced-in yard, but will willingly accept hugs & kisses over exercise, even if it is from a volunteer he has just met. He seems to be housebroken & has already adjusted to the routine at MLAR. Coonhounds need lots of exercise, either by long walks or by good workouts in a fenced-in yard, but this being done, they are usually couch potatoes in the house. If you can give this handsome fellow the love & exercise he needs, come out to meet CJ in person. His puppyish antics will charm you. And…if you have never lived your life with a coonhound, you just don’t know what you’re missing!
