They are treated if necessary before being made available for adoption. Please visit the Adoption Application page to apply.
Mandy is a friendly beagle from Virginia. She's had a tough life up to now. She lived her whole life in an outside pen and most likely only interacted with another dog when she was bred, having had at least three litters. She and a male dog were left behind when their owners were evicted. Mandy came into the rescue in September. She was adopted, but returned a few weeks later. Mandy needs to be on a schedule to help her be successful housetraining. She is reactive to activity outside so needs an adopter committed to helping her avoid the stress of standing guard at the doors and windows.
Pancake is a timid beagle from Virginia. He is about 2 years old and weighs 26 lbs. He was found stray and although his owner was found, they didn't want to claim him. He is very sweet and starting to loosen up. He was very scared at the shelter and when he arrived at his foster home, but he has really come out of his shell in the last few weeks. He plays in the house like a puppy, loves to chew toys, and howls when the cat doesn’t want to play with him. He needs some work on manners, but he is learning. When he isn’t playing, he likes to curl up on the couch for naps. He stays in his crate overnight and seems most comfortable with that.
Pancake needs a quiet fenced-in yard with another dog that likes to romp and wrestle. He is still very skiddish outside, and so has struggled with potty training. He needs the security of a fenced in yard to get past his fear of the sights and sounds outdoors. He will be a wonderful family dog given the time and patience to learn to trust.
Pancake is being fostered in western CT and is ready for visits.
Toby is a sweet and playful 3 year old Foxhound. He is 45 pounds, long and lean. He is very happy, gets along with other dogs, gets along with children, house broken, fully crate trained, and listens very well. He has begun basic obedience training and is doing well. He is smart and attentive, but can get a little distracted. He is quiet and does not bark very much. He loves to chew on his toys, play in the back yard with other dogs, and snuggle under the blankets on cold nights. He will do best in the average family home as he seems to adapt well. He is a little shy at first when meeting new people, but warms up quickly. He could do well in a large apartment, or any sized single family home. He does not require a fenced in yard if given enough exercise, but will climb a chain link fence. He needs either another dog in the home or very attentive owners to keep him entertained. Toby is ready for his forever home and currently being fostered north of Boston.

Rusty is a cute, sweet foxhound mix who arrived in New England a few weeks ago. He's been settling in at his foster home where he is gradually gaining confidence and getting comfortable with life as a pet. He loves the two hound boys there and they play all the time. He now will come to the family members for pets since he sees how much the boys love then. Rusty can be shy around new people so he will have to go to a family that will be patient and kind with him. His potty training is going great and he walks very well on a leash. He does like his crate with a little enticement and is quiet in there. He would do best with a family that has a dog as he seems to love playing with and learning from other dogs. Loud noises don't seem to bother him, but he might do best with older kids or no children in the house. He listen well and is learning "leave it". He still has that puppy instinct to chew on things but when redirected with a chew toy does very well. There is no toy or food aggression and he loves to run away with the toy and put it in his toy stash.
Over all Rusty is such a sweet cute little boy.
Belle is a sweet, fun-loving, active, Redtick Coonhound. She is about 2 years old, weighs 45lbs, is house broken, friendly to other dogs, and loves to play all day long. Belle would do best in a home with another dog, no cats, and no small children. She does have some separation anxiety and boundary anxiety but is attentive and training to trust that her human will return. She is not completely crate trained, but is getting better with it. Her perfect situation is someone with Coonhound experience that is home all day long and can give her the attention and continued training she needs. Having another dog to follow the example of will make Belle's transition much smoother. She is smart, loving and very cuddly. Belle listens very well to commands she knows and is going to do best with continued training and activity. She is good on walks with a harness and could be a great running partner. Belle's favorite thing to do is run around the back yard with her favorite toy in her mouth for a while, then sit by your side at night while you watch TV. This adorable little girl is being fostered in NH and will be available for visits soon.
Toffee is a 5 yr old redick American English Coonhound in northern NJ. She's housebroken, gentle with the daughters, aged 6 and 9; she walks well on a leash and knows 'sit'. Toffee is a typical hound though - she likes her daily long walks and exercise, she'll chase cats, she'll escape the fence if given an opportunity, and she'll counter-surf and get into food if possible. Toffee was adopted several months ago by a family and she just not a good fit as their fencing is inadequate and she chases their cat. They feel that Toffee would be a lot happier with a secure fenced yard and another dog to play with. She gets so excited when she sees other dogs on walks and coming home as an only dog where she must be segregated from the cat is a sad situation for her. Toffee is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. She weighs about 60 lbs but needs to lose some weight. Please contact the owner directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Rehoming fee applies. Hound experience and another dog in the home is preferred.
