The adoption fee for most of these dogs is $250, puppies are $300, seniors $200; if a dog is not spayed or neutered we require a $75 deposit, which is refundable once surgery is performed.

Also, [Application Pending] means the dog does have an application, but backups are welcome and [Adoption Pending] means the dog is in an adoptive home on the trial period, but has not yet been adopted so we will still accept applications until the adoption is finalized.

Blue is well….Blue. We are not sure what breed Mr Blue is but he is a hoot. This 15 year old boy has had a rough time and just needs a place to rest his head. Every morning he rolls on his back and wiggles around. He enjoys bed privileges with the use of stairs. Otherwise he sleeps were he lands.

Blue snorts like a pig, lays like a frog and is as sweet as a hound. He loves to be petted and thoroughly enjoys belly scratches. He is dog door and house trained.

Shelly

Shelly, fondly called Chick by her foster family, is a laid-back, sweet girl, wise and greyed beyond her years. She loves dogs, people, and kids. She loves a good snuggle and rub but also likes time alone on a soft couch, rug, or in the kennel. She will do zoomies in the yard and play chase with the pack. She loves a good sunning, too!

It seems Shelly had hard life. She can be shy, timid and even scared by sudden movements or loud voices. She is slowly learning that people mean love.

She is housebroken and picks up quickly on new commands. Shelly has this sweet little slow wag to her tail and the best dinner dance you’ve ever seen! Will Shelly be your next dance partner?

Gulliver

Are you active and outdoorsey?

"Me too!"Says Gulliver. "Want to get together for a run, hike, or hunt?

Gulliver is an active, smart, and energetic boy. Alpha personality so it is recommended that he be an only pet or have a meet and greet with another similar size/energy dog. Gulliver has hunting instincts so should not live with small pets or children.

Gulliver is heartworm positive and will need to be kept crated and calm during his treatment. Hound Rescue will cover the cost of treatment for any adopter that would like to get a head start with Gulliver.

Sam

Hound Rescue is urgently looking for an adult-only home with dog experience and no other pets to foster or adopt Sam.

Sam is a gorgeous young dog, very striking - he was a big hit at Dogtoberfest last fall. We believe his breed to be Colombian fino hound, possibly a mix. Sam looks like a beagle-basset mix, only 3 times as large as a typical beagle! He is very friendly and good-natured and absolutely loves his people. However, Sam strongly needs training, structure and routine and cannot live in a home with other dogs. Sam would be best in a home with no cats.

Sam is very strong and still has a lot of young dog energy, so needs lots of outlets for that energy, especially considering his size. He should not be in a home with young children, as he can be overwhelming with them. He needs an experienced dog owner who can handle a strong and energetic dog and commit to a structured training program and routine. Hound Rescue will cover the cost of training for a committed owner willing to work with him.

Sam will reward the right owner with all his exuberance and love!

Bailey

Bailey is a sweet, friendly dog who just wants to be close to her person. Her foster mom referred to her as a Velcro dog; she wants to snuggle right next to you and doesn’t like to let you out her sight. She’s very social, always wants to meet other dogs and people. Bailey has started to enjoy playing with toys in her foster home. She gets along with the other dog in her foster home, but doesn’t play with him very much. She can be possessive of food and treats around other dogs. Bailey suffers from some skin allergies, but her condition has improved with baths and meds. She is housebroken and uses a doggy door. She isn’t fond of the crate, but will go in if enticed with treats.

Bailey will be the perfect dog for someone looking for a laid-back snuggler!

Sookie

Sookie is a sweet beagle girl, 11 years young. She is very agile and you would never know she's 11 years old, except for the graying around her face. She loves walks and gets two walks a day (can go a mile or more for each walk). She pulls the leash to go where she wants; a "Gentle Leader" harness has helped with her pulling. Sookie is a loving dog. She loves to cuddle on the couch, and she'll flop over on you and have you scratch her belly. She loves men and is always attracted to the alpha in the house. She loves being a part of a pack and wants to be around you while relaxing in the house. She'll probably take over your couch too, even if you have dog beds all around.

Sookie is food obsessed, which led to some aggressive behavior with the toddler in her previous home, so she needs to be carefully monitored around all food and should be in a home without young children. Aside from that, Sookie is a delightful dog looking for a cozy forever home!
