Dog of the Day: Kenji, Treeing Walker Coonhound

Pin It

My Dog’s Name: Kenji

Age of My Dog: 2 years

Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound

What I Love About My Dog: Kenji is the sweetest and most gentle dog I’ve ever had. Despite his rough beginning, he loves people, other dogs, and even our cats. Kenji was one of about 30 dogs that were tied along the fence line of a property in North Carolina where illegal cock fighting was occurring. The dogs were their “alarm system”. All 30 dogs were taken to a local kill shelter . Fortunately, all 30 of those hounds were rescued or adopted. Kenji came to me in NW Indiana on a two-day volunteer driver transport. Every driver fell in love with him!

Kenji likes to “hug” my feet with his paws in bed at night. He simply melts when you give him attention!
