                                           Priscilla - Adopted
Priscilla is a beautiful urebred bleutick coonhouond from North Carolina.  She loves people and other dogs. She sweet and friendly and likes attention.  Priscilla can be a little vocal if lonely - she might enjoy the company of another hound in the home.  She loves her food and easts quickly, probably because she was a bit underweight when she came in.  Priscilla is about 5 yrs ld and weighs about 50 lbs.  Priscilla is al vetted and ready for her new home.  She is currently fostering in Connecticut.

                                Wesley -  Adoption Pending
Wesley is a cute little hound from Virginia. He's about 1.5 yrs old and a small hound at about 35 lbs.  Wesley seems like he was someone's pet.  He's very engaging with people and seeks petting and attention.  Wesley will be ready for transport to Massachusetts for arrival on April 11th.


  Bonnie and Clyde are 2 yo old redbone siblings that came to us from Virginia. They are petite at about 35 and 38 lbs. Both are outgoing, friendly and good with other dogs. Bonnie is sweet and affectionate, she's eager to meet new people and will come lean on you for some petting. Clyde is active and playful, he's excited about meeting new people too - especially if you have treats to offer! He loves his walkies and is a typical hound with his nose to the ground. Both are good with other dogs and are currently boarding at a local doggie daycare where they get along with everyone, but can often be found lying next to one another in the sun. We'd love to see these two be adopted together - or at least move to a foster home where they can wait for adoptions. Bonnie and Clyde are in the Boston area and available for visits. 


   Hazel is a very special hound girl with a lot to offer the right home. She's 2 years old and a petite hound at about 40 lbs. Hazel has a wonderful personality.  She's very social and loves meeting new people.  She greats old friends and new with her tail wagging, her butt wiggling and great enthusiasm. She's equally good with other dogs;  she loves to play but reads other dog's signals well and will leave older and less playful dogs alone. Hazel is a true hound at heart, she enjoys her walks and outside time, has high prey drive and will be right on the track of any critters in the area. She is a champion snuggler and loves to curl up on the sofa with her favorite people.   Hazel came to our rescue with an incontinence problem due to a congential defect where one of her kidneys attaches to the bladder.  This has been surgically corrected and Hazel is recovering well.  She still has an occasional leak which may be eliminated with medication. She's doing better at housebreaking now and will ask to go out. 
It's possible that Hazel will need to wear a diaper when inside, but we are hoping that medication and housebreaking habits will eliminate the need for diapers.  She's been splitting her time between two foster homes and does well with people and dogs in both places.


Rocky is a handsome American English Coonhound with a nice, easy-going personality.  He's goofy and lovable, gets along well with other dogs and is friendly wth new people.  Rocky is 2 - 3 yrs old and weighs 50 lbs.  He'll be arriving in April 17th.


                                             Maverick - Adoption Pending
Maverick is another American English Coonhound from Virginia.  He's gentle and calm, walks well on a leash, good with other dogs and appears to have been well cared for.  Maverick seems fie around cats.   Maverick is abut a year old and weighs 57 lbs.  He'll be arriving April 11.


 Clarice is a sweet red and white  hound from southwest Virginia.  She's a bit shy but wants to trust and be friendly - she'll come around with a little patience and she's going to be a great hound companion. Clarice enjoys playing with the dogs at her foster home and would probably do well with a canine companion in her new home.  She's affectionate and engaging with her foster family.  Clarice is about 3 yrs old and weighs 50 lbs.  She has arrived and is ready for visits.

Blue and Bell and their little friend Yoda were found by the highway in West Virginia.  A good Samaritan took them in but can't keep them.  Blue is a female treeing walker hound, 1.5 yrs old and about 60 lbs. Blue is playful and has particularly bonded with the Rottie in the family.  She does not like to share her food around other dogs, but that is managable. She's a confident dog who enjoys her outside time.  All are friendly and loving with people.  Blue is located in West Virginia and we will transport her this Summer.

Charlotte is a beautiful bluetick coonhound who has been at a shelter in New York state for way too long.  She's a good dog and will be a nice hound companion if just given a chance. Charlotte is about 4-5 years old and last month, weighed in at 60 lbs. She came to the shelter in April of 2017 from a shelter in Kentucky, after being found as a stray. She is spayed and current on rabies and distemper, and is also microchipped. She had a dental cleaning last April with only one extraction. Charlotte gets tested for heartworm and tick borne illnesses each year and was treated for Lyme in April of this year.
We learned early on that Charlotte can climb chain link fencing and digs. When she digs, it is usually to create a cool spot to lay in, but we let potential adopters know regardless. She can get anxious being cooped up in our kennel on days that she can't go into her yard, so we have been giving her Purina's Calming Care. It really helps to chill her out and keep her from becoming stir crazy. IShe probably won't need to continue taking this once she is in a home. She is afraid of thuderstorms, and is given trazadone beforehand, to keep her calm during the storm.
Charlotte is adventurous, yet cuddly. She loves going for walks and does well on a harness. She also enjoys lounging around, being pet, and cuddled. She does not do well with cats and dogs, but is wonderful with people. She hasn't been aroCund many children, but was well behaved around the few she has met. Because of how our kennel is set up, we cannot guarantee that Charlotte is house broken. When she is given access to her outdoor space or her play yard, she will go to the bathroom outside. However, in the colder months when we keep the doggie doors in her run closed most of the time, it is not uncommon for her to go to the bathroom inside, especially overnight.
The ideal family for Charlotte would be one that doesn't have other pets, is active, and has a fenced yard that she cannot climb. A family that has experience with hound dogs is highly preferred. Contact Hudson Valley Humane Society at
