ke is about 1-2 years old and is suspected to have been raised to be a rabbit beagle. He is very sweet and curious. He's great with the two female hounds he is being fostered with. Although he is still shy at first, he is learning to trust. Ike will be arriving in MA in late June.

                                                Sparky - Adopted
Sparky was bought as a puppy to be a hunting dog, but was never trained. He is a small, sweet,13 inch, 25 lbs. purebred beagle with AKC papers. He is a year and a half (DOB 12/29/16). He is very active and loves to play. He has a big beagle bay so would not do well in an apartment. He is crate trained and walks well on a harness. He does well with the 6 year old boy in his foster home. He loves walks, but would love a fenced in yard and another dog to play with to help him burn off some of his energy.

Bob is a 2-4 year old beagle mix. He is very friendly and is good with other dogs. He is due to arrive at the end of June.

                                            Cumberpatch - Adopted
 Cumberbatch is a 1-2 year old blue tick beagle. He weighs about 30 lbs. He is very sweet, outgoing and is great with other dogs. He will be arriving in early July.        

 Chandler is approx. 4 years old and weighs about 35 lbs. He is timid at first, but loves people. He loves to come to you and bury his face in your lap. He is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. He will be arriving in early July.    

                                              Franny  -  Adopted
 Franny is a small redtick beagle about 1 year old from Virginia. She weighs about 12 lbs. She does well with other dogs, but is still quite scared. She will benefit from being in a home where she can learn to trust, but will need some time to get comfortable. She would do best with another dog to help her learn the ropes. A somewhat quiet home without small children is best. Franny appears to be housebroken. She is due to arrive in early July.  

                                               Tina  - Adopted
 Tina is a quiet 10 year old little beagle. She was adopted from NECR three years ago, but has come back into the rescue after her adopter became ill and can no longer care for her.  She gets along well with other dogs both large and small and ignores the barn cats that live with her. Tina would do well in a home with no children. She is looking for her fur-ever home where she can live the rest of her life like a queen.     

 Sassy is a happy, active hound girl.  She's been living with a family in the Boston area for the past two years; illness in the family  caused them to return her to us to be rehomed.  Sassy is sociable, crate-trained and housebroken.  She is doing well with the other dogs where she is currently boarding.  She's been observed with cats before and has done fine.  Sassy enjoys just hanging out with her people and is a good companion.  We think she'd do best with another dog in the home, and with owners who can give her some obedience training.  Sassy weighs about 45 lbs and is about 7 yrs old.


Rymer is a handsome red and white hound from Virginia.  He's about 2 yrs old and weighs about 65 lbs.  He won the hearts of the rescue volunteers at the county shelter with his sweet and engaging personality.  He's a happy hound, always ready to meet new people and play with other dogs. He's learning to walk nicely on a leash with a harness. He has some prey drive so probably not the best with cats, but it could depend on the cat.  Rymer has arrived and is ready for visits.

Tippy is a hound mix from Tennessee.  He's a friendly hound mix, 3 - 4 yrs old and weighing about 50 lbs.  Tippy is ready for transport  from Virginia.

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 loves playing with the other bluetick coonhound at her foster home and is a good companion for a dog needing a friend.   Star has arrived and is ready for visits in Western Mass.

Riley is 2 yr old NM Treeing Walker Coonhound who is looking for a hound-loving home! He has lived with another dog in the past, but did have some trouble sharing toys and things so would likely do best as the only pet in his new home. He does seem to enjoy spending time with other dogs on occasion, however. He is super social with people and loves to hear that he's a good boy!
Like most hounds, he is active and enjoys being busy so will need attention and an active household to keep up with his adventures. Riley loves to snuggle after a fun packed day!  Riley is located at the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts in Brockton, visit their website at

 He is a 4 year old 100lbs Redbone Coonhound. I have had Jasper since he was 7 weeks old.

HEALTH: Jasper was neutered as a pup and has all records of all routine vaccinations, along with any other vet information. I am a bit of a hypochondriac when it comes to my animals so he has been to the vet a bunch of times for no good reason but peace of mind. Jasper does not like his nails clipped and is something I have to have assistance with. Jasper is really good about getting in the tub for a bath, however yard baths are a disaster.

Training: Jasper has been house broken since a pup. I have been grateful he has had no issues in this department. Jasper grew up having full access to the house at all times. There's no issues with the trashcan or missing shoes. Jasper is a hound so most commands fall on floppy ears. He can sit and come (when he's ready). That's about it. Most anything else I always got the stand and stare.

DAILY ACTIVITIES: Jasper is excercised daily. Rain/snow/cold/hot. When we walk around town I use a pinch collar. He is very good on a leash however his nose leads in a zig-zag pattern and is never straight. His true passion is running free in the woods. There is a state park close by with a big patch of woods and walking trails. I walk the trails and he makes his own. He has the hunter instinct but no training and no idea what he's doing. I use a shock collar when in the woods. He is responsive to the tone. Sometimes he gets on the trail and there's no amount of yelling that will break him.

TEMPERAMENT: Jasper is a hound so he's very stubborn and independent. Jasper has an issue with small children. This is the reason for the rehome. We have children in our close family and his actions make us nervous. He will snap and growl at them. We fear something will happen. We have consulted our vet and a rehome seems our best option. Jasper loves people and loves to smother  people with his tongue. He is fearful of fireworks, and gun shots.  He will find a spot and hide and shake if the noise is close. Thunder too.

Jasper is a great dog and very loyal. He loves to be outside in all types of weather. He also likes to sleep on the couch or on a bed. He has his own double bed he claims at night. He does like to follow you around the house. His favorite room in the house is the kitchen, waiting for a crumb to fall.

Jasper's ideal home would be with a couple or single person who enjoys being outside. He is not to be trusted around small children. He is a great companion for any dog owner. He has his issues like most dogs. But he deserves a family that loves him and will accept him for his faults.  Jasper is located in upstate NY .  Contact

Berkshire Humane Society has a handsome treeing walker coonhound, ' Walker'.  He's 4 yrs old, friendly, good with other dogs, and a typical hound boy who like some time outside during the day.  Coonhounds don't do well for long periods in shelters and Walker is overdue for his Forever Homes!  If interested contact:

Duncan is a happy but mellow hound. He is content to lie on his bed and he is QUIET. Do not let everyone convince that all hounds do is Bay…not true. They make wonderful family members as they are patient and kind hearted. A fenced in yard is preferred for hounds but leash walks are also great. He is about 45 lbs. He is ready for his new home.  Duncan is available from A Canine Gem in Williston VT.

 How many dogs do you know who could successfully live in a sedan with two other large dogs, two small dogs, and a cat and remain sweet? Winnie is that dog! Despite all she's been through, she's a loving girl who is happiest when she's by your side. She has fun going on long walks and if you tell her you're going out in the car, she'll happily leap right in to join you. She'll do best in a home with someone who's around a lot. She also likes other dogs but is understandably protective of her own food after all she's been through so she'll do best in a home as the solo dog in a home with teens or adults.   Winnie has been waiting for a real home to call her own for many months - it's time for her to be adopted!  Contact BayPath Humane Society in Hopkington MA
