Meet this crazy cute and sweet one-year-old black-mouth cur named Soleil. Like her name, she is a total ray of sunshine and could easily become your newest best friend. Her favorite activities at the shelter are playing with her dog friends, going on walks, and learning new tricks (she is so smart!). Soleil will always be there to give affection and be a constant entertainment source. She gets along with most other big dogs, but is not compatible with small animals/cats. Soleil would thrive in an active household with lots of space to run and play fetch. If you’re looking for the perfect big family dog, then Soleil is your girl!
Notes from previous foster:
“I love her! While she was here for two weeks, she really wanted to jump up on me, but quickly learned that I did not want her to do that.. she put all her weight on her back legs, like a bear, and then a paw on either of my shoulders, and drew me in for a hug- one of the greatest experiences I have ever felt from a dog.
She really loves people, and apparently has no hard feelings or suspicions for a dog who was abandoned. she is pure boisterous and happy go lucky love! Probably the people who dumped her just had no idea how to be patient with a silly large puppy.
She also seemed to grasp that I am fragile, and seemed to try to lean on me to support me. That was pretty handy for me when going up the stairs, ever so slowly. When she is mature she could be a great service dog?
Soleil is a black nosed hound, who was bred to be a cowdog, hunting dog and family guardian, in the deep south, from the 1700″s.
Soleil liked to play ball, run around with my other dog, and chase. So if you don’t have a fence, she would go after coyotes, deer and anything else that moves. In reality, she would probably play with your dog until exhausted! And the cats would have to hide, i suspect. She is a fabulous dog, waiting for more training, and will doubtless grow up to be a loyal and wonderful companion.”
