Clarice is still looking for her Forever Home. She will do best in a home with another hound and a fenced yard. Clarice loves playing with the two hound girls at her foster home - she has typical houndy energy and likes her time outside. She also has the hound 'wandering' instinct and will look for escape routes if the fence is too short or if she's bored. She's content to snooze once she's had some exercise and prefers soft places to sleep. Clarice is a sweet, sensitive hound girl who is a little tentative in new situations, but has a lot of love to give her family once she's settled into a new home. She's about 3 yrs old and weighs about 50 lbs.  Clarice is ready for visits and is in a foster home in southern NH.

 Keyla is a bluetick coonhound in northeast Pennsylvania.  She wandered into her current foster's yard, emaciated and exhausted several months ago.  Since then she has gained weight and returned to good health; she's had vaccines and has been treated for Lyme disease.  She still needs to be spayed.  Keyla is housebroken and gets along with the family dogs, the cat and the rabbit.  She's sweet and affectionate, engages well with strangers, and has been okay with kids 8 yrs old and up - has not been evaluated with younger children.  Keyla may try to protect her food around other dogs, but it may depend on the other dog's behavior as well.  It would be best to feed her separately in her new home until she is settled in.  Keyla is about 6 yrs old and weighs about 65 lbs.  If interested, please contact Susan at
