Cheech has become comfortable in his crate where he spends varying time during the days (while we work) and at night. He does sleep in the crate next to our bed. He goes out every hour to run & roam around the yard and attempt to have a reasonable play with Jake but sometimes he just gets too puppyish and too playful for the older fur kids. He also gets 2 walks a day around the loop and we hike on the weekends. Today we will start his second hiking adventure. We do give him some in the home running time as well. Our little flying monkey…. LOL Hounds in general can be active dogs but he has something else in his breed mix that makes him even more active than a hound. Could be some miniature Australian Shepard or something. I really do equate him to the Ice Age Squirrel that just wants his nut! He has high energy so a devoted high energy person/family with a secure yard, and another active playmate would be a great fit for this young dog! Put in an application today!
