Sarah is a sweet beagle from Virginia. She's estimated to be about 8 years old and weighs 30 lbs. She's most likely had a rough life. She is showing her age and missing some teeth. She is friendly and loves people! She'll be a great companion for someone who is home a lot. Sarah really just wants to hang out with her people and take a few naps during the day; preferably on her owner's lap! She is affectionate and enjoys attention. Sarah is looking for a home where she can be the only pet as she doesn't like dogs or cats in her personal space. She is being fostered south of Boston and is available for visits.
Zeke is a 2 year old hound mix weighing about 45 lbs. He's a sensitive, sweet dog who would enjoy a fenced yard and another happy hound to play with. Zeke has not had the easiest life and takes a little while to settle in a new home. Within a few days at his foster home, he became very attached to foster Mom and Dad and likes to be near them - he's a very lovable dog! He's coming out of his shell and learning to trust and enjoy himself without being hyper-aware of his surroundings. He's still cautious about stepping over thresholds or through tight spaces into rooms, but once in, he's very comfortable. Someone may have treated him roughly to restrict him from certain spaces. He needs reassurance and positive reinforcement only. Previous use of a shock collar has made him very sensitive, and trying to pull him anywhere by the collar causes Zeke to shutdown and slump onto the floor. He has mixed feelings about being crated due to abusive use of the crate at a previous home, but he does go in on his own occasionally and is getting over that. Zeke is a quick learner and is learning some obedience commands at his foster home. Zeke needs a home with a patient, loving, family that is familiar with the hound personality and positive reinforcement training methods. No shock collars, bark collars, or electric fences please. With a little work and patience, you will be rewarded with a sweet and loving hound companion.
Penny is a 3 yr old redbone coonhound, weighing about 55 lbs. She has a very sweet personality, likes to meet new people and is good with other dogs. Penny's houndy behaviors are evident when she's outside as she puts her nose to the ground and starts tracking and will let out an occasional howl. She's been fine with the cats at her foster home, but does have some prey drive and might chase cats that run outside. Penny seems housebroken and should be ok with kids. Originally from Alabama and arriving in Massachusetts in September.
Susie is a sweet and gentle redbone coonhound from Virginia. She was probably a hunting dog and enjoys her outside time. But after a walk or some time in the yard, she's ready for a nap. She does fine with the other dogs at her foster home, but is not interested in play and they just co-exist. She could be fine as an only dog. Susie does not climb or jump up, she does fine in the crate and her housebreaking is in progress but will need some reinforcement. Susie will do best with a fecned yard. She weighs 55 lbs and is middle-aged - vet says 5 - 7 yrs o ld or possibly a bit older. She weighs 55 lbs.
Does anyone have a home for this sweet middle-aged foxhound? Lucy is a friendly hound girl who was adopted from NECR 3 years ago and has been living with a family in RI. She is engaging with new people, housebroken, and is comfortable in her crate at night or when no one is home. Lucy likes other dogs her size or bigger but is not really playful. She walks well on leash and doesn't have much prey drive. She does not like to be disturbed when sleeping and may not be the best choice in a home with young children. She knows some obedience commands like 'sit', 'paw', and will come in from the yard when called. Lucy is 7-8 years old and weighs about 45 lb.
