Darryll Rome, New York 5/16/2015 8:52:48 PM I'm the proud owner of a red tick/be able mix. she's coming up on 4 years old. The drool doesn't usually show up until food does. But even then if we put a plate on the floor for her she will actually sit and wait until she is told it's ok to eat it before she lunges for it. She is an absolutely amazing and loyal dog for our family and loves our 2 kids to death. If she's outside she's all about getting attention, but go ahead and come into our apartment unannounced or uninvited and your likely to leave missing a face. We couldn't ask for a better dog and I won't ever own anything but another hound again! Although I would love to stop constantly cleaning bathroom trash from the toilet and tub.
