From the Foster:

Hobo is one awesome southern gentleman!  Upon first meeting this dapper man you will be gently offered one paw.  How long you choose to hold the paw is up to you.  Once you have gotten to know each other he will quietly insert himself into your personal space on occasion for some attention.  He prefers ear scratches, belly rubs, back scratches…really any attention is ok by him.  Although he enjoys company he does occasionally retreat to a comfy corner to have some “me time”. 

As is common with hound dogs, Hobo has a lovely singing voice.  You will be able to enjoy this sound when he…needs to go outside, sees someone out the window he would very much like to meet, or when he is lonely and desires your attention.  Although the kennel is not his favorite place to hang out he is working on being ok with having some alone time in there.

 

Hobo enjoys walking around the neighborhood, as long as it is at his own pace.  He is a bit more accommodating when walking with other dogs but will still stop and stare at something only he can see.  If it were up to him, he would wander over to everyone and every dog for a meet and greet.  He seems to be particularly interested in checking out the small humans.

 

Being a gentleman of a certain age you would assume that he is ready to take life slow and easy.  You would be right…most of the time.  He will surprise you by being able to jump over barriers and onto tall surfaces and occasional zoomies around the house. He is working on learning where it is ok for him to be.  He also really loves to ride in cars but predictably would prefer to be up front where the action is.

 

Hobo loves his food but is more than happy to share.  He doesn't feel the need to guard his food.  Meds have been given to him in pill pockets and vegan hot dogs because he is the only dog we know who doesn’t like peanut butter
