Lilly has had her puppies and has been fostering in New Hampshire. She's housebroken, crate-trained, and has done well with the family's 4 children and other dogs. Lilly is affectionate and attentive towards people once she knows them.

She is ready for visits and a move to her Forever Home.

 Eddy is a 2 year old neutered treeing walker coonhound. He would make a great companion in a home with no children or cats. Depending on the dog, other dogs are okay. He is very smart, loving and social. He loves to be with his person; going for car rides, walks, training exercises and just spending time together. He loves to run and play. He has possessive aggressive tendencies and needs to be with a confident owner who can set him up for success by providing the leadership he needs. He does listen to the "leave it" and "off" commands very well and has responded well to training. He is crate trained and trained on an electric fence. I do ask in lieu of an adoption fee, you pay for an initial training ($75) to do with Eddy in order to get his and your relationship off on the right paw! Contact: Jennifer Ferrebee;

                                                       Gaitlin Gronk
This striking pup is Gatlin Gronk, a 3 year old coonhound weighing 70 pounds. He was born and bred in TN, but is New England Patriots fan (loves Gronk!) so he's made his way to MA.  He is a very sweet, very loyal, fun-loving goofball, who loves all people. Gatlin Gronk's a typical hound- nose to the ground, tail in the air following a scent trail, so he would love a fenced yard where he can run safely and have fun. He has been living in homes with dogs his size, and does great! (Checkout the photo of Gatlin snuggling with his foster sister). He really enjoys going for car rides- head out the window, ears flapping in the wind, big smile on his face. Gatlin Gronk would do great in a home with older children. He is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. Gatlin Gronk will bring loads of fun to his lucky new family. Do you have a spot on your couch for this Pats fan? A couch that does not have a cat . Gronk's adoption fee has been waived in favor of increasing his options for the right home.

Gronk is available from Forever Home Rescue in Medfield MA

 Kevin is a Red Tick Coonhound straight out of Georgia - he is currently in the Albany NY area.  He is a goofy, sweet, handsome, loving, fella who loves attention and loves to play with the other dogs his size (preferably female). Kev will need an active household to expend his energy but on the other hand, he could do just as well as a couch potato and professional snuggler. :) Kevy is about 2 years old and all UTD on his vetting, crate trained, and neutered. He will need some fine tuning on the leash as he does pull...a harness would be best.

Kevin is a solid 65 lbs so he would do best with older children since he still acts very much like a puppy. An active lifestyle would suit him, and we feel a fenced in yard would be best. Given his prior situation, Apartment living wouldn't agree with him unfortunately. If you are interested in meeting Kevy, shoot us an email and we'll be happy to speak with you!

 Morgan is a blue tick coon hound living in Brooklyn N.Y.  She is just under 2 years old,  and is very gentle , but has some aggression towards certain female human beings.  Some continued obedience training and possibly living with another dog in the home would help to eliminate this behavior. She is best in calm settings with room for her to get vigorous exercise.   She is trained in basic commands, housebroken  and is 100% up to date on all shots.  She is also micro chipped.  Please write to, or call 917 417 3354. 

Jade is a 20 month, female, Plott hound. She is fixed, microchipped, vaccinated, and crate trained. Loves other dogs--not cats.
The way to Jade's heart is exercise. If you walk her and play fetch with her every day, she will be eager to please you. Loves training games & finding hidden treats. Loves walks through the woods and the countryside. It's especially fun to walk with her in the winter and to be able to identify the animals tracks in the snow. Last winter she loved pulling a sled with kids on it through snow. In the summer time she loves to be outside all day--she needs a large yard to play in.
Jade needs an experienced dog family that has the time & motivation to keep her active. If you can't meet her exercise needs, she will bounce off the walls. Be prepared to go for at least one 45 min walk and play fetch games for 30 minutes daily--the more the better. If you are able to keep up with her exercise needs, she is a lovable dog.
Though she has grown up with little kids and will let my 3 year old crawl all over her, Jade's boisterous energy can be hard around some kids. 
Jade has kept me on a great exercise routine! She has encouraged the whole family to be active and outside a lot more then we would normally be. She also loves cuddling on the couch with the family at the end of the day. I have to rehome her due to health issues in our home. I'm asking a rehoming fee of $300 which will include all dog toys, crate etc.
