Sam and Annie
These two are a pair of very sweet redbone coonhounds. They were rescued as strays from Tennessee and
have been living as pets in Massachusetts for the last several years. They are housebroken, crate-trained, friendly, happy dogs. Sam and Annie have been through a lot together, they are playmates and best buddies and we are looking for a home that will take both of them. Their owner can no longer keep them due to changes in living situations and work schedules. A foster or adoptive home is URGENTLY needed by Dec 10th. Please contact NECR
at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Meet Hooch! A wonderful 10 year old Redbone Coonhound with lots of personality. He is affectionate, loves being outside, a good snuggle on the couch, and treats! He is very friendly with adults but isn’t good with small children or cats so he should go to home without them. Hooch takes a little time to warm up to other dogs but has lived with a lab mix and has a few dog “friends” that he trusts so he could go to a home with another dog if they are compatible. He is 85 lbs., up to date on his shots, microchipped, and e-fence trained. Due to a new baby in the family, Hooch is need of a new home – preferably with a large yard, someone to give him plenty of attention, and no children. Contact Sarah at email@example.com
Abby is a beautiful redbone coonhound. Her family's work schedule has changed and sadly, they are having to rehome her. Abby would do best with another dog for company or with someone who is home during the day. She has some separation anxiety. Abby loves chasing smells when walking in the woods. She is house broken minus the separation anxiety. She is accustomed to an invisible fence and stays in the yard most of the time. She is fully vaccinated and spayed with no health issues. She is also leashed trained. She'll make a great companion. Abby is about 7 yrs old.
Dixon is a 3-year-old, 55-pound hound mix.
He is house trained and not destructive, though we recommend keeping the kitchen door closed! He is very smart and a quick learner. He likes his stuffed toys, playing tug, and fetching a big ball and is good at amusing himself too.
He enjoys playing with other dogs of any size and loves day care. He would thrive in a home with a calm, adaptable dog who enjoyed play to work off his energy and could also be a role model. He is also good with cats, chickens, and children.
His hound ears are sensitive, and he doesn’t like loud noises like the vacuum, lawn mower, power tools, etc.
Dixon responds best to positive training methods and CANNOT be trained with an electric collar or fence. He initially barks a lot in the car out of excitement but settles in if it's a long ride. He’s fine with being groomed, nails clipped, etc. He would do best in a structured setting with a lot of consistency and clear boundaries where he understands what’s expected of him. He is very vocal.
Dixon is available for adoption through Almost Home Rescue of Maine. We require vet references and a home visit for adoption approval. All Adoption applications are completed on line at www.almosthomerescue.net

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. Contact: Karen at email@example.com
