Bandit, the Dog of the Day
Name: Bandit
Age: One year old
Gender: Male Breed: Hound mix
Home: Omro, Wisconsin, USA
   Bandit is a rescue originally from Illinois. We adopted him from Neenah Animal Shelter in Neenah, WI after they transported him up here from Illinois, with the rest of his litter. We had just lost our ten-week-old Beagle puppy to coccidia, and were not sure if we were going to get another one after this. Then we came across Bandit on petfinder, and decided to have a look. We fell in love and filled out the papers on him. We were approved, and got to pick him up on September 6, 2011. So we have officially had him a year now!

    Bandit is a hound mix, so because of this we ended up putting a fence up in the yard. (we were going to for our beagle anyways, and I wanted one living in town, but Bandit just gave me the best reason to lol). It took Bandit a little while to really warm up to us after his stressful first four months bouncing around in shelters, but once he did he shaped into a wonderful little boy.

    I believe I found his mom in Illinois. I found out which shelter the litter was from, and found a female that looked like him, and was adopted around the time the puppies would have been gone and they could focus on her. The female was only a year old at the age of adoption, and only weighed 25 pounds. She looked to me to be a beagle/dachshund mix. But we have yet to figure out what dad was. We want to do one of the DNA tests, but we haven't gotten around to it yet. It's not a huge importance because whatever it says won't change how we feel about him! I personally think he's part weasel! ;)

    A little about Bandit...Banny loves to bark. Well, bay/howl. He loves to chase rabbits, and he is super fast, at only about 37 pounds. He hates water. He can swim, but only if you carry him out in the water, then let him swim back to shore. Bandit loves other dogs, and is always up for playing.

    Bandit really doesn't know any tricks, but knows basic commands. Bandit has white toes on every foot, and on the underside-his pads are all black except for the outside toe on each foot. We all love him very much!
