Rescue Me ID: 18-03-03-00368JJ (male)

Redbone Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Heartworm Positive 

    My name is JJ and I am about 1-3 years old. I was so timid when I came into the shelter that I had to be picked up and carried outside. I didn't trust people due to back experience. Now I have come out of my shell and all I want to do is play. I initiate play not only with other dogs, but with people as well. When I want you to play with me, I will paw at the air and kind of turn my head to one side. I do like to play fetch, but don't guarantee that I will always bring the ball back. I am in search of a family that can show me that not all people are bad and that I can be loved. Can you give me a new view on life? I have no experience with ... (Read More)cats or kids. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-03-00364Sonny (male)

Treeing Walker Coonhound Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Heartworm Positive 

    My name is Sonny and I am roughly 6-8 years old. I am not as tall as your average hound and I am built kind of broad (or at least I was in my younger years). I crave attention and am a very mellow/laid back hound. I am not a very active dog, I prefer to just lay around and observe what everyone else is doing. Know anyone who needs a buddy to cuddle with on the couch?

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-03-00356Gina (female)

Black and Tan Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    My name is Gina and I am new resident at the shelter. I am still unsure about this new place. The people seem nice, but if they move too quick or I get nervous then I will sink into the floor. I am a very sweet dog and learning that I do like the attention they give me. I have not made up my mind about the other dogs that reside here with me. If someone would be so kind as to add me to their family and give me the chance to blossom, I would very much love the chance. I have no experience with children or cats.
