Duke is a two year old Redbone Coonhound mix who needs a new forever home. We adopted him from a shelter 1 1/2 years ago, but my husband recently passed away unexpectedly and I will not be able to keep him as I am moving to a condo in Michigan. Currently I am located in Harmony, Maine. He is housebroken, up to date on shots, neutered, does not get into the garbage, does not get onto counters. He knows many commands but chooses whether he will do them or not...come, sit, stay, lay down, speak, off, heel, leave it...very food driven. His hunting instincts are strong but he has never been trained for that...he smells everything, notices the littlest change, he obsessively sniffs out mice and has killed two rats in the house.
He loves to play by himself or with others. He gets along well with most other dogs, but can be a little bossy. He does not do well with cats. He would be okay with older kids, but is too strong and too hyper for small children. Duke has to be a house pet because he loves people and needs lots of attention. He enjoys going in and out, unless it's raining. He loves hugs, kisses, and cuddles. He wants to sleep right up against you or sit in your lap. He backs up to you when he wants you to scratch his back end, and buries his head in you belly when he wants his shoulders or ears itched or rubbed. He loves blankets and being covered up. He gets excited about walks but pulls bad, gets excited to go for a ride but then fusses and whines and sometimes gets sick. Duke has some allergies but we don't know what...he sneezes, itches, chews, and his ears get warm. Per our Vet we give him a Benadryl as needed, otherwise he is very healthy. He loves to watch out the window and bark at everything that moves in the neighborhood, and when anyone comes to the door he jumps and barks, completely out of control. He hates to be confined at all, breaks out of crates, digs at a door, chews on door knobs. Duke needs a home where someone will be with him most of the time, someone who can be strong and firm to get him under control, but playful and loving as well. He would benefit from a big fenced in yard, or someone who will walk or run him every day. He is a beautiful dog and I love him to pieces, I hate to see him go, but he needs more than I can give him. In the right home, he will thrive and become a wonderful family member or companion.

Life is so much better with a friend by your side. Jose is a 3 year old Hound boy who is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his new best friend! Hoping for a playmate to escape life’s boredom with. Someone who enjoys spending time outdoors. This boy is an avid walker who loves exploring local trails, hiking to the top of a mountain, running on the beach with the sand between his paws or just taking a stroll around the neighborhood after dinner. Running around in the backyard, breathing in the fresh air makes him feel alive.
Jose is the type of pup who wears his heart on his paw. Very sweet, affectionate and gentle as can be. The expression on his face will capture your attention. His big brown beaming eyes, that adorable smile, those floppy ears, that cute little nose and that wiggly butt of his are hard to ignore. A comedian at heart he will surely steal the show with his goofy antics. He is your faithful shadow, your loyal pal, the one who is devoted to you without a doubt. Once the night has settled and the stars appear it’s time to relax nuzzled up by your side.
Social with other pups Jose would love to have a friend to grow up with and a nice fenced in yard to play in. Cats are simply too much temptation for this boy so a home without them is a must. Having a kid around to spend time with might be nice. Jose wants nothing more than to be a part of a loving family. Closing his eyes and hoping they come along soon. Oh what a wonderful life it will be! Jose is currently spending time with a remarkable foster families enjoying all the comforts of home. Jose is available through the Manchester NH Animal Shelter.
Blue is a very handsome, fun and loving 4.5 yr.old male hound mix that weighs about 75 lbs. He's a very friendly, outgoing, happy, loyal and sweet. He likes to play with all kinds of dogs as you can see him playing in the video, but doesn't get along well with cats. Some of his favorite things to do are: walks/hikes, camping, car rides, and playing with toys (loves Kong's). He LOVES to hang out with his people!
Blue's ideal home would be a home with a little less commotion with older teens/adult home since little kids keep him on alert and he's very protective of them. He's got a laid back personality all in all. He's trained in all his basic commands (sit, stay, down, leave it, off, etc) and is fully trained on a perimeter wireless fence as well! A yard to run/hang out in is a must! He's super smart and a fast learner, especially is you have a treat (he's VERY food motivated). In his foster figured out how to open the doggie doors using the latch! He is already crate-trained and house-trained. Available from Almost Home Rescue in Maine.
