About the Dog


Yes Gates is available for adoption! (If they’re listed here, they’re available)

Gates showed up at the front gate of Hollow Creek Farm skinny, full of worms and fleas. Of course, we took him right in! Poor guy was so hungry so we fed him, bathed him, and then we took him to the vet, got him wormed, all vaccinated, neutered, and flea dipped.

Gates, a 1-year-old hound dog is crate trained, house trained, and would do well in a home with other dogs and kids, no cats though. Check out that beautiful brindle coat! Doesn’t shed much and has short hair.

Today, Gates is like a new dog! After gaining weight, he is 55 pounds. He’s super friendly and sweet, loves treats, running around, and playing with other dogs.

Gates does well on the leash and would benefit from going to obedience training. Gates needs someone with a very active lifestyle that includes daily runs or fast walks with him at your side.

He is extremely physical and would do best in a yard where he can run to his heart’s content and chase balls that you throw for him. He needs a lot of physical exercise and is not a dog to crate all day and take on slow walks after work. He needs action to be truly happy.

You can tell by his ears and his ability to sniff out the best toys and softest dog beds that he is a hound, but he has incredible house manners.

Gates found his way to Hollow Creek Farm so that we could help him find his forever home. Are you going to make sure that Gates has a Happy New Year?
