Dougan is currently our longest resident dog at the Humane Society of Utah. He has been with us since the Summer of 2016. He's part of our Pets in Progress program (read more below) and we are committed to finding him the best home possible to ensure his future success. He is definitely ready for his new family to walk through the door! Please help us spread the word about Dougan!
Dougan is a two-year-old Redtick Hound. He is extremely smart! His brilliance is amplified by his extreme treat motivation, making him an easy to train dog that would benefit from training classes and ongoing work from a dedicated new home. He has attended some nose work training classes here at the Humane Society of Utah, and we believe he would be an excellent working dog for hunting or search & rescue. He can be vocal -- as is normal of hound dogs -- so a home that is used to hounds would benefit him.
Dougan does best with dogs his own size and kids over the age of thirteen. He should not be in a home with any cats or small animals. He is a very active guy the loves a lot of activity and playtime, which is the reason for these restrictions. Dougan would also do best in a home where he won't be left alone for long hours at a time because of his energy level. He would do best in a home with a fenced in yard so that he can get his energy out.
