He adores women and is a snuggly, wiggly boy. He can be anxious about other dogs and he will do best in a home where his person is gentle, patient and can spend time with him one-on-one. He is in a foster home in Boerne TX...more Red is a 7 year young retired hunting dog and he is not a candidate for a home that hunts. He cannot be in a home with cats, small dogs, or children.
