Laverne and Shirley are two redtick sisters from Union County SC. We can place them together or separately. These beautiful redtick girls are between 1 and 2 yrs old, about 45 lbs each. They've been hanging out together at their foster home in South Carolina where they love to play and enjoy petting and attention from their fosters. They are typical young coonhounds, energetic and playful, good with other dogs, and always ready for a good nap after some exercise. If placed separately, we will require that each has a canine companion in the home. Watch their video at:
Laverne and Shirley have arrived and are ready for visits.

Jace is a 10 month old Border Collie/Coonhound mix. He is everything you would expect a crazy hound/BC puppy to be. He loves to run, gallop, actually; he loves to chase, big dogs, little dogs, any dogs. He loves playing with other dogs -- big and small, male and female.
He likes to learn and learns quickly unless he decides to pretend he doesn't hear you. He came into foster care with no manners, but is in the process of learning. Countertops? yup, he'll surf them if given the chance. Recall?, only if he thinks food is involved. Housebroken? well, mostly.
He is timid around strangers and most men, but he has shown some progress with patience and positive reinforcement. When he was seized, he and his 6 brothers had had no socialization, so his progress is actually remarkable. He will bond quickly to a trusted person, but has had negative experiences with a man in the past, so he is not very willing to trust men quickly. Not perfect yet, but he is trying.

GracieGracie is an attractive female coonhound mix who was rescued at the age of 1 and has been with her current family for 5 years. She is being rehomed due to a move and health problems in the family.She loves to comb the woods with her hound howl and is in her glory if she can run free with her nose to the ground tracking scents. She is a fast dog and has lots of energy. She isn't particularly fond of the cold and likes to find her sunny spot to curl up in. She is a great watch dog. she does well with leash-walking.She does not have a lab personality, of course, but ha done well in a family with 6 children and although not an overly affectionate dog, she has her moments of affection that she gives to the children. She would probably be best suited to a household that has older children or just adults since she is not a real playful dog, although she will get into a good tug of war with the children.She wags her tail excitedly when we return home and loves to go for walks and for car rides, as long as she has a window to put her head out of. She is housebroken and let's you know when she has to go out.She likes to have her own bed area, but has been known to sneak out of bed to find a cozy spot in a bedroom closet.She does not have formal obedience training, but this may be a good idea. We are keeping her confined to one area of the house that we recently moved into and she has been doing pretty well, although when the sun hits the other room she does her darndest to get to that room so we are continuing to work on her obedience.She really has not had any problems with any other dogs except the one that bit her recently. She has tended to get along fine with any she has encountered.
Amy is a 5yr old purebred bluetick coonhound from Tennessee. She has been living with a family in the Boston area for the last 4 years. She needs a new home with dog-experienced owners. She is affectionate and friendly, housebroken and walks on a leash. Amy will sometimes bark at the other dog in the home and certain members of the family. She has no bite history, but her behavior sometimes makes people uncomfortable. She imght be best as a one-person dog, but can possibly overcome this tendency with some confidence building and a strong owner. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
