Zing is a pure breed Plott Hound, 3yrs old. He is a higher energy boy, but does settle nicely for a nap as long as he has been able to stretch his legs and sniff the ground everyday for a bit. Zing is good with children but would be better with older children because he is obsessive about food and "people" food especially. He will happily take food from a child's hand if it is within his reach....
