I am looking into rescuing a 7 month old, female plott hound/redbone coonhound mix. I am very positive that she and I would be great companions, however, I have one question. My backyard is large and mostly fenced, but has no gates, so she would not be allowed out on her own. I do, however, run and go outside a lot myself, and my job is only part time, so she would not be inside by herself for large amounts of time during the day. Would this be acceptable, or should I reconsider?
