These 3 female puppies came to us from Virginia where they were owner surrenders. They were born in late September, so are 4 - 5 months old now. There were children in the home they came from; they are well socialized with people, kids and dogs, All enjoy petting and attention. Logan is the most confident and adventurous of the group, Mackensie is submissive and has a sweet and soft personality, Susie is funny and excitable, also affectionate. They'll be ready for transport to Massachusetts in early March
This cute pair of Beagles were an owner surrender in Virginia. Bob is a tricolor, about 1 yr old and weighs 22 lbs, Jane is lemon and white, 3 yrs old and weighs 21 lbs. They are playful and friendly. Bob is more confident with Jane around and we would love to place them as a pair. They love to play and tumble all over one another. Ready for transport in mid March.
Ferris is a young Beagle who loves attention and spending time with his people. He's typically submissive and has been friendly around the school-age children that he's met. Like most Beagles, Ferris loves sniffing around in the yard and doing zoomies. He's met a few dogs and will sometimes want to play. Ferris is from a rural area where he lived outside. He's already making a good transition to living as a house pet, he's almost housebroken and is comfortable with the the household noises and kids where he's staying. An urban environment may not be best since Ferris is uneasy around trucks and loud noises outside. He crates well when no one is home and likes to sleep on his dog bed at night. Ferris would probably do fine with another dog, especially a beagle since he used to living with one. He's 2 - 3 yrs old and weighs about 30 lbs. Ferris has arrived in Massachusetts and is ready for visits.
Clyde is our newest coonhound rescue. He's been at a boarding place in Virginia for several months, where he was left by another well-meaning rescue that ultimately couldn't take him. Clyde is a loving, friendly hound who enjoys attention form everyone. He walked in the local parade and happily greeted everyone - what a great coonhound ambassador ! Clyde is mature at 3-7 years old and weighs about 53 lbs. He's an energetic hound who needs an active playmate or an adopter who will get him out for walks several times a day. Clyde has arrived and is ready for visits in southern NH.
Goldilocks a young Beagle mix that was found stray in Virginia. She's about 3 years old and weighs about 35 lbs. She's sweet and friendly around new people and seems to have been someone's pet. Goldi has spent time in a foster home and housebroken. She's a great companion and loves to be where her favorite people are. She currently goes to work in a retail setting with her foster, where she is well-behaved and likes to greet new people. She's learned 'Sit' and 'Down', takes treats gently, walks well on the leash, is good in her crate overnight and rides well in the car. She's a champion snuggler and likes to nap next to someone or on a lap. Goldie would be best as an only dog and will be a good companion for someone who can spend time with her. Goldie is available for visits west of Boston.
Frtiz is a cute hound mix from Virgina. He's about a year old and weighs about 40 lbs. Fritz has a lot of playful puppy energy, although he can be a little tentative in new situations. He has a sweet personality and is engaging with people once he feels comfortable. Fritz prefers female dogs for company judging on his behavior at then kennel, but he just may be selective about his playmates. Fritz had a light case of heartworm and has been treated these past three months. He's healthy and active and can't wait to stretch his legs wth some good long runs and walks. Arriving in Massachusetts March 16th.
Bart is a special hound dog who emodies all of the contradictory qualities of this breed: Strong yet sensitive, goofy but dignified, scared from a tough life, but still trusting and resilient. Bart has been staying with some long-time NECR fosters and friends in southwest Virginia. He's a sweet and friendly dog, about 5 years old and now weighs about 70 lbs. When he came into the shelter months ago, he weighed 48 lbs and had some scrapes and scars from life on the run or possibly was used for bear hunting. He's recovered well and is happy to enjoy all the comforts of being a house dog. He's a good running companion for his foster and settles into running the trail quite well. He likes other dogs - bowing and zooming around, but no cats please. He's not timid and like to lean into his people for some petting. Bart will be a great companion and could be an only dog or planed with another dog in the home. Bart has arrived and is at his Massachusetts foster home.
Dylan is a very special rescue dog looking for that special someone to give him a Forever home. Dylan is a tripod as a result of his front leg getting tangled in some fence wire. By the time he was discovered with his severe injuries, the leg could not be saved. But that is all behind him now and he's ready for his new life. He gets around fine and enjoys playing with the other dogs at his foster home on a farm in Virginia. He likes to hang out in the sun, watch the farm animals, and snuggle into soft places to sleep. He's affectionate and friendly around people. Dylan is about 3 years old and weighs about 45 lbs. Ready for transport to Massachusetts in March.
Ginger has arrived in Massachusetts and what a great dog she is! She's very engaging with new people, got settled quickly in her foster home and showed that she is a champion snuggler. She was adopted once from the shelter but her owner ended up in hospice and she was returned - so she's had experience living as a pet. She appears to be housebroken, understands that certain things are not allowed, although she could use some obedience training. Ginger is about 4 yrs old and is a little underweight from the stress of shelter life at 48 lbs. Her ideal weight is probably around 55 lbs. She's good with other dogs, playful, and would probably love a hound companion. Ginger is fostering in central Massachusetts and is ready for visits.
Beautiful Thelma is a redtick American English Coonhound from Virginia. She's about 2 years old and weighs about 45 lbs. Thelma is a little tentative in new situations but does warm up to new people with some patience; she's good with other dogs. The shelter in Virginia describes her as having a soft, sweet personality, probably a failed hunting dog who would rather sleep in a soft bed in the sun ! Do you have a spot for her? Thelma will arrive March 2.
Ann and Dan are a pair of hounds that were found stray, thin and hungry in rural Tennessee. They were taken in by some good samaritans who are retired and can't keep them, but are fostering them long enough to get them healthy and get their vetting done. Ann and Dan are friendly and very sweet. They crate well and aren't very demanding.. The vet estimates that they are 3 - 5 years old. They will have ideal weights of about 45 lbs. Ann is the tricolor, Dan is the Black and tan. It would be great if we could place them together, but we would consider placing them separately, once we are sure that they'll do well. Ready for transport mid-February.
Barkis is a handsome bluetick coonhound who is looking for the right home. He's about 3 years old and weighs about 65 lbs Barkis is an affectionate and living compnaion with medium energy requirements. He currently enjoys his fenced yard and frequent walks. Barkis has been living in a foster home for most of the last year. He's housebroken and has good house manners. Barkis has undergone a lot of training while at his foster home. He has learned to greet people gently and knows several obedience commands. Barkis' trainer is offering a free initial training session to get Barkis off to a good start in his new home. The ideal home for Barkis would be in a country or suburban setting with a yard, with an adoper who is hound experienced and can offer structure and routine. Barkis is currently located in north central Connecticut and is available for visits.
Winnie is an 'all blue' bluetick coonhound. She's a young hound who's always ready for playtime - gets along great with other dogs and is curious about meeting new people.

It's hard to capture her beautiful blue-ticked coat in photographs. Arriving March 2.

Gender: Male and Female
Color: Karma (brown and white); Cash (black, brown and white)
Age: Karma, 8 - Cash, 10
Breed: Treeing walker Coonhound
These two beautiful walking hounds are in urgent need of a new home due to no fault of the current owner. Karma is about 8 years old and good in her crate and kennel. She currently spends much of her time in a kennel and is comfortable in it. Karma loves other dogs but is unsure about cats so maybe a feline free home would be best for her. When it comes to people she is a bit shy at first but once she gets to know you is very sweet and affectionate. Since she is a bit shy, Karma would prefer a home with quieter, older kids. Karma needs to be spayed.
Cash is an outgoing and very friendly ten year old hound boy. He loves everyone he meets. He is great with kids and other dogs while he seems to ignore cats. Cash acts more like a six year old pup with his energy level and does really well in his crate and kennel.
Karma and Cash are former hunting dogs and are very healthy and up to date on their vaccines. It would be great if we could place them together but they would do well if placed separately. These two souls are super sweet and would make an amazing and lovable addition to your family. Karma and Cash are available for visits in Connecticut. Please contact Sabrina at email@example.com

Breed: Plott Hound
Weight: 85 lbs
Rocky is a loving, smart, loyal and mellow Plott Hound boy who has been through a sad and difficult situation recently with the sudden passing of his loving owner. He is a big boy at around 85 lbs and is about 8 and half years old. He is a healthy boy with a beautiful, short brindle coat! Rocky would love a quieter more peaceful home to spend his days. Rocky would do great with older teenagers and adults but prefers to be the only pet in the household, so no doggie siblings please. At this point, Rocky doesn't get along well with other dogs so he will need consistent support and training in helping him feel more comfortable with his dog peers. Rocky is such a good boy with potty time outside and (when not in a fenced yard) does well on a lead line. Some of Rocky's favorite things include walks, meeting new people (Rocky LOVES people), cuddling with his people, being a good listener and hanging out, snuggling up on his favorite recliner, roaming around freely in a fenced yard, and leaning on his people for love, rubs and scritches. Rocky is the sweetest hound boy you could ever meet and can't wait to cuddle with you to his hearts content. Rocky is currently located in Southern New Hampshire and is available for visits. If interested, contact Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell: (603)-566-8500
This big ol' goof is Humphrey! He was rescued from an overcrowded shelter in Kentucky and this southern lug has been adjusting to the busy streets of NYC. Humphrey is a pretty big boy - he's around 70lbs! But he's a big doofus who just seems happy to be here. He's a fun-loving dog who may be a little distracted at times, but he's trying his best! Humphrey is learning his basics during his time here at Animal Haven, but his adopters will have to continue putting in work with basic training to make sure he's the best boy he can be! Although Humphrey has been getting used to the city, somewhere out of Manhattan or in a quieter neighborhood would likely be best for him. He's overall great with other dogs, but he's not a fan of cats. Contact Animal Haven for more information on Humphrey!
Humphrey is at Animal Haven in New York, NY
Gender: Female (spayed)
Color: Bluetick (black, tan and white)

Age: about 7 years
Gracie is a very gentle, quiet and beautiful Blue-Tick hound girl that is ready to meet you. Gracie has lived with a wonderful and loving family for over three years. She was originally brought in as a foster but then quickly became a part of the family. Due to some significant life changes, the very caring family has decided to find Gracie a home where she can continue to live a happy and active life. Gracie is about 7 years old and 45 lbs. She is a healthy, active girl that loves walks and play time. Gracie might be shy when meeting new people but warms up quickly. Gracie currently enjoys a fenced in yard but can also walk on a leash. She has never been crated while with her current family. Like most hounds (if not all) she loves mealtime and will become a bit more active when it's time to eat. Sadly, Gracie was once a mistreated hunting dog and might be startled by loud sounds so a quieter home would bring her the most ease. A military veteran or someone that understands PTSD would be a great match for Gracie although she would fit into any home that shows her love, guidance and reassurance. Gracie adores her two dog siblings and even shares her bed with them when she wants to cuddle. Gracie is also very sweet and patient. She has experience living with other rescued dogs and has had wonderful experiences with all of them. Gracie would also be good with children, but has never been observed with cats. Gracie is a docile soul that wants to be your soft place to land and snuggle with on the couch. Can you offer her that comfy spot?
Gracie is located in Burlington, Vermont and available for visits. If interested in meeting Gracie please contact Lea at email@example.com.
Age: 2 years old
Weight: 49 lbs
Gender: Male Neutered
Color/breed: Bluetick and Redtick mix hound
Introducing Tracker the sweet and silly boy! Tracker is a beautiful Red-tick/Blue-tick mixed hound boy that wants to meet you. Tracker currently lives with a family that originally planned to keep him as a foster so they are seeking the perfect forever home for him to thrive in. Tracker is 2 years old, weighs around 49 lbs and is active. He would do well in home with kids and dogs but likes chasing cats too much to live with them so no felines. Tracker is a smart pup and understands commands such as: "come here", "off", "out", "leave it", and "kennel" but may need some reminders to follow through. Tracker needs some leash training as he pulls hard but a gentle leader or easy walk harness would really help with his leash skills. Tracker's potty etiquette is excellent as he will scratch at the door when he wants out. Tracker is crate trained and can stay in his crate for up to about 4 hours at a time. Tracker needs a yard with a 6 ft fence because (as his name avows) he likes to explore. Tracker would make a wonderful addition to a home where he can play part of the day and then crash on the couch with his people. Tracker is available for visits in rural Maine but the current family is happy to meet somewhere more convenient for prospective adopters. Please contact Morgan Rolfe for more information on this amazing dog at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 207-263-6152
