Full Description:  I am the sweetest boy with a huge heart. I came in as a stray terrified of everything. I would crawl on the ground because I was too scared to stand upright. I have come out of my shell when I am in the back with my favorite people and other dogs. I will continue to flourish when I find my forever family and a place to call home. You should know a thing or two about my breed as us Hound dogs can be a handful. If you love my breed, you are sure to love me!    Please call the Mason City Stray Animal Shelter at 641-424-3617 for more information.

Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, flea and dewormer treatment, feline leukemia/FIV test in cats, heartworm test for dogs.

A special volunteer wrote this poem for Banjo:
Black Gold, Texas Tea
Stand up tall my boy and you will see
Soon your “forever” will howl- FINALLY
“The energy…. it’s gotta be You and Me”
So they’ll load you up and move you home
You will run, bark, and never roam
“You” big-hearted guy will feel like a millionaire
With nothing but food, love, joy and trust in the air!!!
