Great Dane Redtick Coonhound Mix

Sam is a big goofy giant. He is a tall lean build weighing in at 90 lbs. He is a Great Dane Redtick Coonhound Mix. Coat patterns matches a Redtick Coonhound however body structure like a Great Dane. – We believe that there is another breed in there somewhere!

In the house he is a typical Great Dane – super relaxed, sleepy and big lap dog. However when we go outside he is pure hound – high energy level, extremely high prey drive and is extremely focused on scents. He has currently dug three holes in the backyard in what we think is an attempt to look for animals. Sam has already found three mice houses since we have had him.

He requires lots of exercise so he goes for many hikes and bike rides. Unfortunately he will not fetch – he would much rather just explore doing his own thing. He is very independent that way.

He is EXCELLENT with children – very respectful and gentle. He is great with other dogs and strangers -we are working on socializing with cats. If they run he will chase however cats that hold there ground he gets along with. He rarely barks – however he will whine on occasion if he is anxious.

Rescue Dog

Sam is a rescue and so when we got him he had a few issues. We have had him for almost 2 years and he responded very well to training so most of his issues are completely gone.

He is an extremely intelligent and friendly dog. He is the best thing that has ever happened to our family and we just love him to bits! We are forever grateful that we have him in our lives – he is so deserving of a wonderful life.

Sam is a Great Dane/Coonhound mix – or so we have been told. His past owners surrendered him to a kill shelter in Kentucky sometime in the February – March 2015 because they couldn’t afford the food – I later adopted him in April 2015. His old name was either Cooper or Copper, the rescue organization that saved him from euthanasia named him cooper-copper.

I would love to know where Sam came from. I would like to know more about where he came from.. I know it was not a good place since he came in 35 pounds underweight and very malnourished – but I try to believe that they really did love him and that they really couldn’t afford the food. I also want to know what breed he actually is and his real age! I know its a long shot but any information I can get would be amazing!
