Kora

This is R2. She was my first dog as an adult. She was a bluetick/black & tan coonhound mix. She was a gentle, old soul.


This is Max. He was my second dog, a purebred Bluetick coonhound. He was goofy, but then posed for photos with a haughty air about him.

So you can see why I had to have Kora. In appearance, she is like a short version of the two of them mixed together. Looking in her face for the first time, I saw Max's eyebrows, and R2's eyes. I think she is a dachshund/bluetick mix. The rescue place guessed basset and Australian cattle dog.

Kora is a fearless little dog with great athletic ability. Man, can that dog jump. I have signed us up for a beginning obedience class. We will learn to walk again, together.

"We will learn to walk again, together." Beautiful. Made me tear up.

Its wonderful that you have adopted a dog that needed a home. She sounds like a sweet friend.

My younger son had a Australian cattle dog mix. A very smart dog with a mind of his own. Obedience classes are an excellent idea. Kora will be a wonderful companion. Perhaps after you learn to walk together she will teach you to run again.

I love Max's profile, so elegant. Never heard of a coonhound, is the bluetick referring to the wonderful black/ gray/white coloring? Soon you'll be jumping together!

I'd say the set of her front feet indicate a dachshund somewhere in there. I have a doxie mix myself - you're in for a wild ride as they are so stubborn!
