Rose is a nearly 5 year old Foxhound that just needs a home to call hers. She is approximately 40 lbs, is sweet, loving and very cute. She does well on a leash and loves her daily walks. She is laid back and just a short walk once or twice a day will suit her just fine. Rose is a little nervous and will take a while adapting to a new situation and she is reserved and shy around loud noises. A confident and experienced dog owner that will comfort her and help her adapt to their routine and home is a must. She has had some minor food aggression, but it is easily overcome with a routine and patience. She attaches to females better than males and would be good with another laid back dog in the home. Rose would do best in a home without children, cats, or an overly active dog. She will take time to adjust to people in the home so some patience will be needed. A fenced yard or area is perfect for her as she loves to play a little outside and lay around in the sun. She is currently in MA and available for visits.
Champ is a 2 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound/American English Coonhound mix from Virginia. He weighs about 50 lbs although his ideal weight should be closer to 60 lbs. He was found stray and appeared to be loose for a while. He is very sweet and friendly, but very shy. He is getting more comfortable every day, but needs lots of patience and reassurance to learn to trust. Champ LOVES to run and will need a large fenced-in yard to run safely. Champ will arrive in MA Saturday, 1/23.
Belle is a sweet, fun-loving, active, Redtick Coonhound. She is about 2 years old, weighs 45lbs, is house broken, and loves to play most of the day, but knows the fine quality of a good nap. Belle would do best in a home with NO dogs, NO cats, and NO small children. She does have some separation anxiety and boundary anxiety but is attentive and in 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. She is smart, loving and very cuddly. Belle listens very well to commands she knows and is doing very well with behavior and command training. She is going to do best with continued training and plenty of 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. She is initially friendly with dogs but due to signal confusion, she should not live with other dogs. Belle is in MA and available for visits.
FOSTER or ADOPTER NEEDED ! Walker is a 3 yr old hound from South Carolina. He's a smart and energetic hound who just needs to find the right home. Walker was adopted as a puppy from a South Carolina shelter and that home lasted 2.5 years until this past Summer. The family had wanted a much smaller dog and thought they were getting a beagle. Walker matured he started chasing the family cat and so they kept him outside, where he escaped numerous times due to inadequate fencing.. Walker was returned to the shelter and has spent the past 6 months in 3 different shelters with 3 more failed placements. He was finally referred to NECR in the hopes that we might find a hound-savvy home for him. Walker needs a home where he can get a lot of exercise and where someone can continue to work with him on obedience training., perhaps a home in a rural area where Walker can have plenty of room to run, settle down, and bond with new owners. He easily becomes overstimulated and will bark at passing cars and other dogs, but he is already showing improvement after working with one of our volunteers. Walker is housebroken, knows how to use a doggie dorr, and sits nicely for treats. Walker got along well with other dogs at a foster home and may be fine in a home with other dogs. Walker is learning to walk nicely on a leash, he is a quick learner and is very food-motivated.

'Chap' is a hound mix puppy, about 9 months old and will have an adult weight of 65 - 70 lbs. Chap has been through two homes already in his young life, through no fault of his own. The rescue placing him as a small puppy thought he was a JRT/Beagle mix and placed him with someone whose health concerns required a small dog. As Chap got bigger things just didn't work out. He was adopted in November by a family with young children and their sudden movements and inability to leave him alone at times is causing problems. Chap is a great dog who deserves a final Forever Home. He's housebroken and knows some obedience commands ( sit, wait, paw, down). He tolerates crating well, is good with other dogs, and friendly with new people. He currently enjoys going to work with his owner where they are both outside a lot during the day and he enjoys playing with another dog ( a Pointer) there. He bonds to his people and enjoys being with the family, He currently sleeps in his bed in the master bedroom. Chap would do well in a variety of situations. He would be a good family dog if children are older and well-behaved around dogs. He would do well with another dog in the home although that is not necessary. He's an active young dog so new owners should be prepared to meet his exercise needs and continue his training. Chap has been neutered and is up to date on shots. He is located in Southern NH.

Mickey is a foxhound mix, approximately 4 years old. He was placed in a Rhode Island home several months ago by a southern rescue. His adopter is older and feels that Mickey is not a good fit in her home because of his energy needs. Mickey has been neutered and is up to date on all his shots. He is house trained but not crate trained. He is very good in the house except for the fact that he needs to be out and active much more than his current adopter can accomodate. Mickey is a typical young hound and will benefit from structure and training, which no one has had time to provide him thus far. He is very handsome and sweet. He has a "soft mouth" - never grabbing his treats. He is very good with children and fostered with a toddler in the home previously. He has learned "come" (not consistent) and walks pretty well on a harness. Because he is a hound mix he will always need to be leashed or fenced. He is a gentle and friendly dog and generally gets along well with other dogs.. He runs and plays quite well at dog parks and at neighborhood play dates but for some reason does not seem to like Husky type dogs. His current owner would like to find him a home with lots of room to run, with an active and loving family, and possibly with another dog. If interested, please direct inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com if interested. Rehoming fee applies. Hound experience and another dog in the home is preferred.
