Heidi the Coonhound Mix


Dog Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound

Meet Heidi, a four year old dog we adopted from the Colorado Prison Trained Dog Program in March. Because of her coloring, everyone thought she was a German Shorthair mix and we even renamed her Heidi to give her some German flair! Not long after we brought her home, she became obsessed with squirrels, rabbits, and even birds. At times she would literally try to climb the trees to reach them! As it turned out, a DNA test determined she was a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, which explained a lot of her behaviors. She is feisty and fun and has turned out to be a great companion to our chocolate Lab, Bailey.
