See Baby Huey (Jerry's Favorite)'s Homepage
PLEASE NOTE: A fence is always mandatory.
UPDATE: Baby Huey has won highest honors in my home. My husband Jerry who is less then delighted with the amount of dogs who live in our home just think Huey is the best boy! He follows Jerry around and isn't annoying just likes 'hangin' out' with people. He comes and sits down next to you for a pat and a rub, then he settles in to watch TV with us. He is a dear, dear dog who deserves to find his family so he can give all that love to them.
This is our dearest baby Huey boy Dexter. He is just a sweet, goofy boy who loves people and his toys. He really is a real breed -- he is a Plott Hound. I put a picture of one below so you can see how much they look alike -- except my Baby Huey has chunked out a bit in foster care. He needs a home where he will be able to go for a walk daily and burn off some of that baby fat!
Dex lives in a foster home with our volunteer Maddie and a 4 legged small foster sister Brandy. He is very kind and playful with her. As you can see his favorite place is on sofa with or without humans to join him. He put his head on a pillow and just snoozes away.
He is a 'toy-a-holic' and just adores his toys. Toys are his life! When he was fostered with too many dogs, he became possessive of his toys. They tried to take them away from him and he would growl at them, which is his right! He would never growl at people --- EVER --- but he adores his toys and the other dogs have ganged up on him and steal his toys. He needs a home where if there is another dog -- that dog needs to not care about toys. There are dogs here who do not care about toys and that is what we need for Dex to be supremely happy -- a home where his toys are his and no one will steal anymore!
Update from foster: What is a Plott Hound? After I picked up Dexter, I was so interested in getting information about this 'made in America' breed. I found that the Plott hound is not only still used to hunt big game like bear and boar, but what a great family dog they made. Very interesting history.I don't see Dexter, hunting a bear anytime, but he is a wonderful family dog. So sweet and affectionate, he likes to pretend he is a lap dog when my husband sits on the recliner.He loves to play with toys and with my other dogs. He listens very well, and will stop chewing on and drop my underwear when I give him a firm no!He is so much fun & very happy to settle into his big crate with his soft bed to rest after playing. What a happy go lucky and loving dog he is. He is definitely a bright presence in our lives right now.
This is our new Plott Hound pup Dexter. He and his room mate 'sister' Molly Mae were marked as EXTRA URGENT which means time is up at the shelter in VA.
He is seen here on a week-end play-date with an L&F adopted shelter kid Jeffie. You can see that he loves a good game of tug of war. He loves all the dogs and everyone he meets, he is so much more handsome in person. Has lots of love to give and is looking for that special family who would give him all the love he deserves. He is an easy going pup and very happy boy!
He is all black except for his face which is an unique marble looking marking and his socks are the same color. A very striking young man indeed! He is a sweet and gentle creature. He came to us neutered so we only need to get the rest of his shots up to date, microchip, provide the de-worming we always do and he will be ready to start his new life with his new family.
This is what the shelter had to say about him: Notes: (his name was Extra.)I just bet you all are wondering how on earth I got my name. Let me tell you the story, it's kinda amusing. One day this nice lady found me, Extra, and some bluetick puppies in the drop off area. She said 'hey, look at that plotthound puppy, he's an extra puppy' Hence the name, I think I like it, I don't know anyone else with that name. I'm a good boy, about 8 mos. and 40 lbs. I share an apt. with Molly Brown, and boy is she a 'N-U-T', but don't tell her, she does curl up beside me and keep me warm. I LOVE people and I'm definitely a lover NOT a hunter. Ick, I don't even like chasing things! I love the comforts of home. Please won't you share yours with me?
PLEASE NOTE: A fence is always mandatory - no exceptions. Be sure to read ALL our adoption policies prior to applying for a puppy/dog. If you would like to fill out an application, you must first register on the website and await an e-mailed passcode. Once you have this info, you will be able to access our application.
Our adoption donation is $200 which is (1/2) of what we've actually spent to properly vet & spay/neuter each of our dogs. Any donation above that would be greatly appreciated & tax deductible since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit!

Any dog/pup adopted from us must have a fenced in property either Physical or Petstop Electric Fence. We do not accept any other branddue to the high failure rate. The fence must be installed prior to us completing an adoption application. If you need an electric fence contact the company Petstop @ http://www.petstop.com/
We abide by the Humane Association's recommendation. For ANY DOG adoption to have a relatively good chance of success, we believe a child should be 8 years old & up. We only adopt what we call our 'BONA-FIDE Kid Lovers to families with children.' Many dogs do not want to live with children. You should only adopt a dog who LOVES kids to be sure you are able to make a lifetime commitment to a dog.
We also expect that if no one is home all day, arrangements will be made to provide the dog with at least (1) 'potty break' daily. This can be through a family member, neighbor, or Petsitting service. We know that it is impossible for us humans to 'hold it' for 8-10 hours, so we do not want our 'shelter kids' to be expected to do so.
