Your Next Best Friend: Carmine


Hey, y’all! I’m a redbone coonhound named Carmine. Are you old enough to remember the big boxes of Crayola crayons? The red crayon was called Carmine, which is the term for a really deep red color. I’m 1 to 2 years old and am putting on some weight since I was lost for a long time wandering. Like most of my hound kin I am very loving. Playing is a favorite activity, especially with other dogs my size. Prefer a fenced yard. And wait until you get a load of my silken ears!

This week, three of my canine colleagues were 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
