Parker is a 9 year old Ibizan Hound. He and his "brother" Mikey are losing their home because their family is divorcing. Both boys are housetrained and both are outstanding family companions. Parker is a very gentle dog who takes food and treats gingerly ... except cheese. He will do almost anything for cheese. He is easy to walk but he is not a great running partner. Parker can run about a mile but when he gets tired he just stops. And he doesn't start again until he is fully rested. Parker loves to go places (especially if he can have access to a sun roof) but water is not his thing. He once ventured into the river a short distance. After a few feet he found a large rock, stood on it like a goat and had to be carried back to the bank. Parker is magic with children. They love him and he loves them.
