Looking for a furry friend who embodies the spirit of adventure? Meet Melody, the adorable and spirited Transylvanian Hound (or maybe a Black and Tan Coonhound) looking for her forever home! At 3 years old and 60 lbs, Melody is bursting with energy, intelligence, and love. She’s searching for a family who understands hound traits and can provide her with the active and engaging lifestyle she craves.

Melody is a clever girl who loves playing games, especially searching for hidden toys. She already knows the command “sit” and will impress you with her obedience. When it’s time to unwind, she’s happy to relax with her plush toy trying to find the squeaker and keeping herself entertained. Melody is a great companion for outdoor adventures and long walks. She adores being outside and will accompany you on every exploration.

While she enjoys her high-energy activities, she can also settle down and cuddle up, ready for some quality time on the couch. Melody has great house manners and is house trained and crate trained. She sleeps soundly in her crate, making bedtime a breeze. Car rides are a joy for her, and she’ll eagerly join you.

Melody is not a fan of cats due to her prey drive and would probably do best as the only pet in her home. She loves children and is friendly with strangers, showing her affectionate nature to everyone she meets. Like most hounds, Melody is strong on the leash. She requires an owner who can handle her strength and provide the guidance she needs. She’s ready to bring her zest for life and infectious happiness into your home. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to share your adventures with this special hound dog, Miss Melody!
