Hannah is a sweet, bright, female English coonhound, approximately two 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.

Henry is a 1-2 year old Coonhound who was found starving on the side of the
road - he was taken in by some good samaritans, one of whom has been fostering him
for over a month now. He is up-to-date on his shots, fixed, and now weighing in at
50 lbs, probably on his way to 65-70. He is also housebroken, excellent on a leash,
Henry is big, sweet, silly and somewhat mischievous! He is still in a puppy
stage and tends to get mouthy or steal shoes when he's bored. He is a
beautiful boy and will mature into a lovely dog, but may require a little
time and patience initially. He would love a fenced-in yard where he can
play and get plenty of exercise. He enjoys singing to the piano
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5I0JKPc7dAM and also makes a great running
partner!! Although he still sleeps in the crate, he loves to sneak into bed
with someone and cuddle when he can. He gets along well with other dogs, and
loves people, but should be in a cat-free environment. He likes to sleep in
and go to bed early, but during the day he is all about play, so he would do
better in a home where someone is home at least part of the day.

Bessie is a Tree Walking Coonhound who weighs about 68lbs and approx 4 years old. Bessie came to GDRNE with her 6 healthy babies in tow. Bessie was an incredible and doting mom to these babies, but they are now ready to wean and it is Bessie's turn to be someone's baby! She is about the nicest dog EVER! Loves love, is good in the crate. Never meets another dog she does not enjoy playing with. Good with kids and cats. Just a gentle soul. Not fully housebroken yet, but she is crate trained and learning house manners. Its hard to train them when they are nursing their pups, but we find momma dogs learn quickly once the babies are weaned. Very food motivated, but not food aggressive. No aggression in this dog's bones at all. All Bessie asks for in life is a family who will pet her an include her. Bessie is up to date on her vaccinations and is now spayed.

Pongo is a black and tan coonhound mix. He is about 4 yrs old. He is neutered and utd on all vaccines. He is about 55 lbs and full of energy. Unfortunately having been in the kennel setting for so long is taking a toll on him. He's been in the shelter kennel for too long and really needs a family to give him a new lease on llife. The staff keeps him out in the playyards as much as possible; he enjoys interacting with people and will be a great pet. He would be great in a one pet home or maybe with another dog, but no cats.... He is not fond of cats. He loves to be by your side and is fine with older kids....small kiddos might not be a good idea. His tail alone could knock them over! Pongo is located in Trenton Maine.
