,Don't let Melvin's (aka "Mel" or "Smelly Melly") premature grey snout fool you, he's a young boy who just celebrated his third birthday! He was extremely shy and easily spooked when he first came to Greyt Angels last fall, but he has really come a long way since then. He is a quick learner and has shown great progress in his house manners throughout his time with us. Melvin has opened up more to people, but he is not an overly affectionate hound. He will come to get some human lovin' and attention when he feels like it, but once he's had enough he's ready to go back to "his spot" in the living room to chill. Despite being a little reserved with humans, he has great social skills with other dogs. He loves his foster siblings and loves to play with them outside in the yard. He also lives with a cat and ignores her and will do anything to avoid her if he can. He will play with stuffie toys on occasion, but prefers to chew on Benebones.
Melvin is getting braver when new people come into his home and if they ignore him, he will slowly make his way up to them to get a quick sniff and possible a pet or two. He really is a sweet boy but will need a family that will understand that he will probably always be a little standoffish and not the most affectionate hound. He would also probably prefer a home where he is not the only hound! If you can love an accept Melvin for who he is and where he is at in his retirement journey we promise he would make an excellent addition to your family!
