Walker is the pet of the week at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS). He’s a 5-year-old, 62- pound, Treeing Walker Coonhound.

As Elvis would say, “He ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog.” Walker was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from an animal sanctuary in Mississippi through the FOCAS program. According to RCHS, He’s a big, gentle guy. Walker loves people and he gets along great with other dogs. The only thing he’s missing is a family.

The $145 adoption fee for Walker includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip.
