We hounds get a bum rap sometimes. By and large, we make great house pets. Hounds need fences because we may still like nosin’ around. We’re really funny and love to play, very affectionate and easy to housetrain. I’m all of these things plus good on a leash and crate-trained, three years old and about 65 pounds. I’m very patient with other dogs and love kids – an overgrown puppy really, and lookin’ for some people who like that idea. You maybe? Bring some tennis balls when you visit.
This past week two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit www.rawldogs.org.
