Preacher is a senior (perhaps 10+ years old) male American English Coonhound mix who was brought to the HSOV on August 16, 2022 by the Washington County Ohio Dog Warden after he was picked up in Stockport Ohio. Preacher was not wearing a collar, and he was not microchipped.
Preacher has a red-and-white short smooth coat with red ticking, a long tail, and a sweet Coonhound face with extra-long floppy ears.
True to his Hound genes, Preacher has a sweet personality and was very docile when HSOV Kennel Tech Kasey Miller took him outside for his photo session later in he afternoon. Preacher perked up when he saw other dogs being walked by volunteers during an after-hours dog walk and treated us to a medley of tunes in his deep baritone melodious voice.
Preacher weighs 66.8 lbs.
Preacher appeared to have some of the ailments which go along with the privilege of growing older, and we thought that he probably had some arthritis which was causing some issues with mobility .. So we were saddened when his Snap 4Dx Plus tests came back positive for Lyme Disease and Heartworm.
Preacher was started on a daily regimen of Doxycycline (heartworm treatment) on August 17th and so far is doing great :)
In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Preacher will be held for three days so that his family will have an opportunity to reclaim him with proof of ownership.
