I have a 11 month Finnish Spitz, and she seems to get along with just about any other breed she has encountered. They are an active breed that really like to play, especially with other dogs, but can be antagonistic (lots of barking) towards them if they don't want to play. If your Bloodhound likes to play, they'll get along fine. As for shedding, they shed a lot.... And finally about the being left home alone, my Finnsih Spitz has no problems being home, in her cage, for a typical work day. Haven't tried leaving her out with run of the house when we are gone yet though. Overall, she has been a joy and a pleasure to own and I wouldn't trade her for any other breed.

Question 1. Yes Finnish Spitz do not judge by breed, they judge by character. They should be fine. Question 2. Shedding is no problem at all, Our 6 month old Finnish Spitz only sheds if you scratch him after he had a shower. Question 3. I would suggest you crate traing first... If you have any difficulties with this just let me know! He/She should be fine for 4-5 hours max when they are just a puppy and 7-9 hours when they are in adolesence and 10 hrs max when they are in adulthood...
