My Redbone Coonhound Porter went home and I just had to have another. This beautiful young girl is a true Redbone (he was a mix) and she is just stunning. Right now she is trying to figure out her new life. I'm sure as with most hounds who come from down South she lived outdoors. You can see that she has had many many litters but that is all behind her now.
I love watching hounds or any dog who has spent it's life outside - never a pet -enjoy what being a pet is all about. All the food and water you could ever want, to be with people who think and tell you how beautiful you are, to be with peoplethat they come to trust -- my favorite thing is to watch them sleep on a big overstuffed doggy bed for the first time in their life. That gives my life meaning.
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.
