She needs to loose a couple pounds. She LOVES attention...gets excited every time she sees you. She seems fine with other dogs, even the bossy female at her foster home; we're not sure about her exposure to cats. Her foster Mom says " Very loving and free with kisses. Does squeal when she sees you but doesn't bark much. We crate when we go to work but she does fine at night not in one. Great on a leash and in the car. Housebroken. EASY " Penny seems like she would be fine with kids. Penny has arrived and is ready for visits.

Buster is a Beagle with a lot of personality. He's settling in at his foster home in Virginia, where he's getting along fine with the other dogs and everyone he's met. Buster is an insistent participant in family activities, he can be quite comical at times. Buster is 10 yrs old and is doing well at making a big adjustment to a new life. He is being rehomed due to his original family having a toddler and a baby on the way. Buster would do best with no toddlers in the home, unless they are visiting children and closely supervised - they just make him a little cranky.
Buster is in good health and will make a great companion. He has arrived in Massachusetts and is ready for visits.
Chance - Adoption Pending
Meet Chance he is a 35-40 lb beagle/hound mix. Chance loves life! Chance loves to run and play with other dogs, loves water, loves to play with toys!! Chance would do best with children over 7 years of age that are big enough to run and play with him. Chance knows some basic commands like "sit" and "leave it". He is crate trained and house trained. Chance would benefit from some continued basic obedience work, but he is easily trained as he is food motivated (you have to love hounds for that).
Chance walks well on a leash and does not pull too much. Chance loves his people and loves to hang out with them. He enjoys "hoof chews" while he is lounging with his people. Chance has a middle of the road energy level and would do well with a consistent schedule with daily walks/hikes and play time with other dogs. Chance is a little too interested in cats - so no cats please. Won't you consider taking a chance on "Chance"?

Francine is a 1-2 yr old spayed female black and tan coonhound, around 45-50 lbs. She is HW- and up to date on her shots. When we first met her, she was feral and trying to care for her 10 puppies under a vacant house. We were able to get 9 of her pups and find them new homes, but it took another 8 weeks to catch her and her last pup. Francine has always been a timid dog as who knows how long she was on her own and what kind of experiences she had had around humans up to that point (probably not too good). She is much more comfortable with women than men, but will warm up to men over time.
(One of our volunteers here is quite large and has a mustache...think Paul Sr. from Orange County Choppers! And he's one of her favorites now.) She walks well on a leash and does know her name. She gets along well with our dogs here, big and small, male and female, but is food aggressive, so she needs to be fed separately. Francine does love treats and will take them from your hand. We do have numerous cats and she is very aware of them, so I’d be hesitant to place her in a home with cats. She hasn’t eaten one or anything, but I haven’t given her the chance to try either.
Francine would be best with a quiet home with another dog as a ‘buddy’ when her humans are gone. A chaotic, busy household would not be the best fit for her. Young kids do make her nervous…she cowers or hides, but has never tried to bite. Francine needs a new home to be patient and understanding of her needs. Once she trusts you, you'll have a friend for life. If interested contact: Pla711@yahoo.com
Duke is a handsome purebred redbone coonhound. Duke likes walks, day care, snuggling, laying on the coach, driving in car, being with people, his kennel (with a special cookie and/or a squeaky toy-loves to be in his kennel by 7pm, but likes the option to leave the kennel if he chooses), counter surfing, dog parks, playing with other dogs, running, LOVES Hiking & trails, Loves to play hide and seek, he loves to hear himself bark, going thru the trash….he LOVES his “people” Dislikes: cats, pulling his tail, cleaning his ears, people yelling (if 2 people are yelling at each other he will get right between them and bark), when people leave, thunder. Because he is a big dog (he is 80 lbs of pure muscle), he would not be good with kids under 10yrs. He would be better with an older couple with no kids that have time on their hands and have lots of room to run and no close neighbors.
Currently Duke has 1 acre of fenced in yard, He is also trained on the invisible fence. He has had obedience training and knows is stuff, he walks very very well, he just gets excited once in a while….remember he is a hound and can be stubborn from time to time. Contact us for details.
"Luukas is a beautiful 2.5 year old Black and Tan Coonhound. He's originally from Florida and experiencing his first New England winter. All bundled up, he's ready for adventure!
His owner is seeking a new home for him because he isn't getting along well with her other dog. However, both his vet and trainer believe that this is not dog aggression but rather that he should be an "only child" and not have to split the attention and love of his owner.
Luukas loves sniffing and exploring outdoors and afterwards snoozes happily on a soft bed (or on the sofa, preferably next to his human.) He gets along well with other dogs when properly introduced but hasn't been tested with cats. His personality is sweet, sensitive, enthusiastic, vocal, and eager to please. He has completed two obedience classes successfully and knows basic commands. He's currently working on learning a trick or two. He loves a good stuffy and chew toy. As with any hound, he can be distracted by good smells. A fenced yard in which to explore and scent would be ideal. In the summertime, he's an avid swimmer.
Luukas does have some special needs. He has advanced hip dysplasia and requires pain medication, a soft bed, and monitoring when he plays with other dogs (rough play causes pain.)
He also has separation anxiety and a home where his humans are present during the day, or where he can go to work with you, is best.
Luukas has a big, gentle, houndy heart and will return your love many times over if you welcome him into your life." If interested contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bodie is available from Forever Home Rescue in Medfield MA. He has been returned due to his not liking the 28 yr old son in the family. He barks like crazy when he sees this young man---not the fault of the young man. Coonhounds can be funny that way. He is fine with all other people and likely will be fine in a dog-experienced home with firm leadership.
Bodie is a 1.5 yr old, 85 pound, medium to high energy, easy to love boy who wants to please his people. He loves everyone and every dog. He will bark at cats but not go after them. His favorite thing is to play and run outside.
If you can give this University of Tennessee mascot his forever home, please contact Forever Home Rescue at email@example.com. As with all our dogs, he would be best suited for a family with children over 5 yrs old.
Beau and Boone
These two male redbone coonhound buddies are looking for a home seperately or together. They could no longer stay in their home and were taking in by a good Samaritan who can no longer keep them herself. They are 2 and 3 years old, crate-trained, and enjoy romping in their fenced yard. They are a little goofy and would benefit from some obedience training, but are both handsome purebred redticks. they have barked at the cats in the home but have not tried to hurt them. Both would be better with older children. Contact SandraSprague@gmail.com if interested. Located in Connecticut.
