                                             Coonhound Puppies  !
 We have a litter of treeing walker coonhound puppies, all tri color, 3 females and 6 males. These pups will be ready for adoption at the end of October. They are being raised in a family home with plenty of socialization and both parent dogs on the premises. They should have an adult weight of about 45 - 55 lbs.

                                              Iggy  -  Adopted !
 Iggy is a happy little hound mix. She's about a year old and weighs about 38 lbs. Iggy still has some puppy energy and likes to play. At her foster home in Virginia, she'll run and bounce around her outside kennel and likes to climb up and sit on her dog house. She's not a big barker and not destructive although she will sometimes dig a little if bored. Iggy loves attention and will come up to you for petting and affection. She does show some prey drive toward squirrels, chipmunks and even chickens, so a home with cats is probably not a good idea. Iggy has arrived in Massachusetts and is ready for visits.


                                          Wilbur - Adoption Pending
 Wilbur is a cute little guy, about a year old and weighing about 25 lbs. We think he is a Beagle Bassett mix, although may have a little something else there too. Wilbur is very sweet and friendly. He's quiet and calm in his crate, learning to walk on a leash and willing to please. He should be a good family pet. Arriving Sept 30.

Joey is an absolute sweetheart.  He is completely house broken and has no issues with chewing or barking, but will sneak onto furniture if you leave him home alone.  He greatly enjoys car rides , extra long walks and the dog park. He absolutely cannot be taken off of leash, but will walk by your side for multiple miles per day.  Although he does not necessarily like to play with the other dogs at the park, he does enjoy their company and does not demonstrate any aggressive behavior. Joey does have some anxiety and can be fearful of some men.  Loud noises will scare him to his dog bed, but a soft voice will help him feel comfortable again.  Joey loves to practice his baying, but only if you sing with him. He loves to be brushed and have his teeth cleaned.  Joey has been with his foster mom for the last month and with all of his walks has shed 5 pounds.  His favorite snacks are fruits and vegetables and will choose his favorites ones over dog treats every time. Joey is about 10 years old and weighs approx 35 lbs. He is available in the Boston area at his foster home for visits.

  Tiny is a pretty little redbone coonhound mix from Virginia. She seems almost housebroken, and is great with other dogs.

Star is a female bluetick coonhound from Virginia.  She's about 4 yrs old and weighs about 45 lbs.  Star can be a little tentative around new people but with a little patience and TLC she does fine.  She needs a dog experienced owner and another dog to help her feel more confident in a new home.  Star has arrived and is ready for visits in Western Mass.

Hi! We’re Walter and George, two tri-colored male basset mixes who are about 2 years old and very bonded.We are quiet and loving brothers who are very bonded and must be adopted together. We do everything together — play, run, wrestle & we even like to sleep together in the same crate. We like other dogs, although George is a little fearful of other dogs (especially little ones) at first. Once he gets to know them a little bit, though, he’s fine. We are both absolutely great with kids. We are super-friendly and get so excited and happy to see our humans! We do chase cats, though, so we would do best in a home without any cats. We love going for walks and playing outside. We are happiest when we can be outside running around, so we need to have a home with a good-sized yard. We can be escape artists, so a home with a good fence is a must for us. Absolutely NO electric fences!!We’ve been working on training, and we know a couple of the basics like sit and down. We would benefit from having a forever family that would help us continue with our training. Our foster mom says that we are absolutely wonderful and that we will make some family very happy. Could that family be yours?
