Bailey is back in the rescue looking for his forever home. Unfortunately, his placement didn't work out because his mom works all day. Bailey has separation anxiety and needs to be in a home where his person is home most of the day or in a situation where he can go with his person. He is always up for a car ride and does great, even for longer rides.
Bailey is very loving and just wants to be next to/pet by his person whenever possible. He's happy snuggling up on the sofa all day. He prefers to be the only dog in the home so he can soak up all the love.
In his previous home he lived with a kitten and was very well behaved with her. Even when she was trying to play he just ignored her and didn't even try to eat her food.

 Tabasco,now renamed 'Baxter' is a sweet, loving foxhound from Virginia, He's about 2-3 yrs old and weighs about 45 lbs. He's the type of dog that will melt your heart - a little unsure and tentative in new situations, but he loves attention loves to lean into you for some petting. Like most hounds, Baxter loves his outside time and walks, so an active owner would be best. He is housebroken, crate-trained, and walks well on a leash using a harness. Baxter has had obedience training and continued obedience work and structure will help him to feel secure in his new home. A home with an experienced dog owner and another dog in residence would be a help as well. He can be a little anxious and we expect that the change from his foster home to an adoptive home will require some structure and attention to keeping his routines in place.  Our trainer is available to help with this transition.  Baxter is available for visits in central Massachusetts.

Star is a female bluetick coonhound from Virginia.  She's about 4 yrs old and weighs about 45 lbs.  Star can be a little tentative around new people but with a little patience and TLC she does fine. She loves playing with the other bluetick coonhound at her foster home and is a good companion for a dog needing a friend.   Star has arrived and is ready for visits in Western Mass.

                                                      Benny and Joon
Benny & Joon were found as strays, believed to be left behind by hunters, we have no idea if they are related or not. They seem to really like each other and Benny is very attached to Joon so we would really love to place them together if possible but we realize this is a lot to ask of someone so if that doesn't happen then we will separate them but place them in homes which have another dog, because they are used to being with other dogs we think they would do best with company. They are both sweet dogs, very friendly, happy and pleasant. Benny is about 75 lbs and Joon is about 60 lbs. they are approximately 5 & 6 yrs yrs old.  Available at Warwick Animal Shelter in RI.

  Here's an opportunity for someone who loves hounds to help a hound in distress.  Gator is about 7 yrs old and his owner is 92 yrs old and no longer able to care for him adequately.  Gator has been out hunting but not for a few years now.  He lives 24/7 in an outdoor pen and family members are concerned for his welfare, especially before another winter arrives.  Gator is not well socialized and it will take some patience to earn his trust, but he's a good dog and deserves a better life.  His family would like to see him live out the rest of his years with some TLC and an indoor living situation. Another dog ( preferable hound) in the home might help with Gator's transition. Gator is located in central CT.  If interested, please contact

Meet Copper. Copper isbeing rehomed due to allergies in the family.  As a pup he was trained in a crate however we found that in his case it did not work well.  He very much wants and needs to be free and with his owners.  He is hands down one of the most vocal dogs I have ever owned, even when happy(a true hound howl).  He was raised was another dog and want to constantly play and run.  He hasn't been around cats very much but from what I see when a squirrel or rabbit comes into our yard I would think that he would try and chase it at all times.  We have a 6 year old daughter that he was raised around and is very good with however he gets excited and jumpy so young children may not be the best for Copper.  He is house broken however he at times did try and mark areas with new sense on them before he was fixed.  He hasn't tried since but we keep a close eye on him.  He is truly at home when out on walks or hiking but with his hound nose you need to make sure he stays on a leash because if he gets wind of something there will be no stopping him.  Fantastic leash walker and stays right at my side.  Any other questions or concerns contact
