Nothing matters more than treats.

When Agnes wrestles me in the park and bites my legs. She's so annoying.

Shreds of stuffed animals, but only if Agnes wants them.

Favorite Food:
Salmon strips.

Favorite Walk:
I track to my teacher's house (porch pictured in the photos). Her husband is the pez dispenser of treats.

Best Tricks:
My "down" is a DIVE TO THE FLOOR for a treat.

Arrival Story:
Searched for "extra large" dog on and came to Midwest Bloodhound Rescue. We had never met a bloodhound until the day we picked her up.

Lulu was used as a breeder dog for 1 or 2 litters, kept outdoors on cement in Indiana, and came to rescue after 15 attempts to run away, at which point the warden asked the owner to relinquish her to Bloodhound rescue. She had sarcoptic and/or chialatellic mange, skin sores, tapeworms, fleas, callouses from the cement, and her teeth are ground down from trying to chew her way out of her cage. Despite this neglect and misuse, she is unbelievably affectionate. She seems to adore her new pack in Chicago of 2 humans who work at home, her sister Agnes, and cat Rorschach. She loves her routines, her many beds, and all people. She is an easygoing and cooperative gal, with the occassional Bloodhound stubbornness. She never bays at home - only when she sees a dog arrive at or leave our dog park. Every day she goes for 3 long walks and jogs and spends off-leash time in a fenced-in field with her many friends. She has a big mama personality and scolds young dogs who play rough. She is "benevolent alpha" = confident with all dogs and calm. She is very popular and many people stop their cars just to meet her. We've read that bloodhounds are "complicated"...emotionally. They are extremely independent, yet very sensitive. It is said you can ask a Bloodhound to do anything, but can never tell them to do anything. The only time she ever chewed something she was not supposed to ( a disposable camera) was when I shut her out of my office.

Forums Motto:
Large and in charge.
