How about an adoption of the Canine kind?

Love this face? She can be yours if you write in the next....
Here is a great puppy for someone to adopt. I know, it seems that I am working for an ASPCA group, but really I am just trying managing our drop-off corner of the County.

She first came to my attention on Thanksgiving Day, dropped off down by our drop-off cat family. I would guess her age at 3-4 months. I could not leave her there since once she found out about the soup line at kitty station, the food was history. So that is one thing I can say about her, she eats well.

Exactly what she is, I don't know, but from her current size I would say she is going to weigh in around 40-50 pounds eventually. Maybe someone can look at the photo and give us a guess?

While still timid when it comes down to actually physically chasing wild animals, she hears and smells them quite well. Often she is the first to raise the alarm and already has a deeper voice than our other older dogs.

Being a puppy, she LOVES to play and aside from being a bit annoying with her constant energy, she seems well natured. Most of the cats have established their tolerance for her and set her straight when she goes beyond it, but poor Sammy (our youngest solid black cat) does not use his claws and does not hiss at her, so she thinks he is a playmate. Maybe he is, but he is not big enough to take the constant flopping on him, so he has started staying in a LOT more lately.

With two dogs already, six cats and six more being cared for down the road, we REALLY do not need another. If she looks interesting to you, PLEASE e-mail me at Steve@mybedfordcounty.com.

We've recently read some horror stories about animals being neglected, mistreated, starved, etc. We know anyone responding will mean well, but if you can not give her a decent life with your family, please do not respond.

Steve,

I don't know if you can ascertain her dominant breed but if you are you may be able to contact a rescue that deals with that particulaar breed.

Mostly Coonhound is my guess, especially since you said she has a deep bell.

Yeh, our vet thought Coonhound too.

She has started on deer, but knows to pull up at the tree line. If someone wants her for that, they better get her soon for training????
