Kappy is a happy bluetick boy from Georgia. He's about 3 ys old and about 45 lbs. Kappy is freindly and engaging, and he gets along great with other dogs and enjoys his trips to the dog park. Kappy is doing well with housebreaking and has a good start on obedience commands. He can be a little reserved in new situations and likes it best when he's with his favorite people. He might do best with another dog in the home as a companion. Kappy has arrived and is ready for visits.
Nova is a nice friendly hound girl. She's got a steady temperment, and though she can be a little cautious in new situations, she's not skittish or fearful. Her foster says she's sweet but not needy. She likes both men and women, is unknown around cats. Nova is crate-trained and her housebreaking is coming along. She'll be a great pet once she's had some TLC and training. But she responds well to attention and petting and will settle in to her new life well. Nova is 2 - 3 yrs old and weighs about 45 lbs. Arriving in April.

Chance and Otis (Mini-hounds - Placing Together )
It doesn't get much cuter than this ! Chance and Otis are two adorable little hounds from Alabama. We think they are something called 'July Hounds' - a special breed of small foxhound that was developed in the south. Otis is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 30 lbs; Chance is about 1 yr old and weighs about 25 lbs. Otis is a little cautious and submissive, Chance is more confident and outgoing. Both will delight you with their playful antics and will be good company for each other - they relate well to people too. We are looking for a home where they can stay together. We discount adoption fees for multiple adoptions. Chance and otis are fostering in Alabama where they enjoy playing and snoozing in the sunshine. These two are all ready to go - we will bring them up for an interested applicant. Video of Chance and Otis Playing: http://youtu.be/L8v4h8GsQ0c
And another one: http://youtu.be/74TKNT7XlEA
10 Reasons to Adopt Chance and Otis:
1. They're so cute !
2. They are great playmates and will wear each other out.
3. They'll have less anxiety in a new home and when left alone since they'll have each other.
4. Many hound owners end up getting a second hound anyway - why not start out with 2 ?
5. With a total weight of about 60 lbs, they're about the size of one male hound.
6. If we can find a home for both, they won't need to be split up.
7. We discount for multiple adoptions.
8. You'll be clearing our foster home of two dogs and making room for two 'urgents'.
9. You'll have one for each side on a cold night.
10. They so cute together! (...oh..did we already say that ?)
Here's a handsome purebred redtick coonhound from West Virginia. Greezie has some devoted fans among the volunteers at the shelter. He loves going for walks, swimming, and being petted. Greezie is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 50 lbs. No cats please.
See a video of Greezie here: http://youtu.be/DySps3bE8t8
Greezie has arrived in Massachusetts and is ready for visits.
Jamie is a friendly, outgoing treeing walker coonhound from Virginia. He's housebroken, crate-trained and accustomed to walking on a leash. He loves to romp and play, so would do well in a home with a fenced yard. He'd be great company for another dog too. Jamie likes hanging out with his favorite people, he's a great snuggler in the evening after he's had his exercise for the day. Jamie is a little too excited around farm animals like chickens and goats and will probably not do well with cats either. Jamie is in foster care in western Mass, visits can be arranged. He's about 3 - 4 yrs old and weighs 55 - 60 lbs.
Hannah is a sweet, bright, female English coonhound, approximately three years old - she has one blue eye and one brown eye. She's a very affectionate, very smart, very high-energy dog. Hannah's energy level and dominant disposition caused problems in her initial foster setting, so she was placed with a local trainer for an extended board and train. She is now crate trained, leash trained, knows basic commands and runs several miles in the woods every day. Hannah is trained on the e-collar and house-broken. Strong breed knowledge is preferred for any potential adopter, and the ability to handle, control, manage and exercise a dominant high-energy dog is mandatory for anyone considering adopting Hannah. A willingness to continue working with Hannah's recent trainer is also strongly preferred. Hannah's athleticism and intelligence make her an excellent candidate for hunting, tracking or nose work.

Roscoe P. Coltrane- Treeing Walker Coonhound, male, 1-1/2 year old. Roscoe is a smart, energetic and super lovable loyal family do
g located near Albany, NY. He has grown up with young kids and loves them, but in his excitement, he sometimes knocks them down, so he'd probably be best with older children. He knows basic commands like sit, down and stay and also knows a few tricks like dancing for treats. Roscoe is crate-trained and invisible fence trained. He gets along with other dogs, but since since he is pretty prey driven we think he would not do well with cats. Roscoe spent most of his early life in a Southern shelter, but is delighting us with how happily he is embracing life in a home, he has a lot of love to give. If you are interested in meeting this handsome boy please contact Peppertree Rescue at 518-435-7425, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website at http://www.Peppertree.org
Scout is an English Coonhound, possibly Foxhound mix who is in need of a good home where she can settle in, have some structure and TLC, and bond with her people. She's been bounced around a little which isn't helping her behaviors. Scout originally came from the south through a local humane society. Her original owner could not keep her due to changes in living situation, so she's been with friends and at a doggie daycare. Currently, she is not getting enought exercise and cannot be contained in the foster's yard.
Scout has typical coonhound energy and loves being outside. She plays well with other dogs and would probably do well in a home with another dog. She seems to do well with kids. She walks well on a leash with a harness. Fencing might work for Scout - she would need a 5 to 6 ft fence; she has been known to go through an invisible fence, and will jump a 4 ft fence. When Scout can play and exercise and have her energy needs met, she is quite managable. When she's bored, she can get into trouble. She is a pretty typical coonhound in this respect. Scout has a lot of love to give and will be a great companion in a hound-experienced home. She is located in Brattleboro VT. Contact NECR for details at email@example.com
