Your Next Best Friend: Shannon

ShannonThey call me Shannon here at RAWL. My guess is it’s because of my coat with lots of red in it, like so many Irish humans. But I’m an American breed through and through, a female redtick coonhound about a year old. I am friendly, friendly, friendly and will wuv you, wuv you, wuv you. For my own protection I need a home with a fence, so if you have one, come visit. Other dogs, no problem, but no cats: I’ll chase them right up a tree.

This past week, one  of my canine colleagues was joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
