GRACIE - FOXHOUND FEMALE (APPROX. 8-10 YEARS)

GRACIE UPDATE:  GRACIE RECENTLY UNDERWENT SURGERY FOR PYOMETRA & IS DOING GREAT.  THE VETS PROVIDED HER WITH A POST SPAY SURGERY COAT.  SHE WAS DELIGHTED NOT HAVING TO WEAR THE CONE!!  GRACIE ENJOYS FOLLOWING US ABOUT WHILE WE DO OUR CHORES.  SHE IS IN FINE FORM AND IS A REAL SWEETHEART.  SHE HAS GAINED WEIGHT AND IS TRULY ENJOYING HER LIFE WITH US.  SHE RECENTLY HAS CHASED A TOY, BUT FOOD IS HER MOTIVATION!  GRACIE IS WANTING FOR A SPECIAL PERSON(S) WHO HAS COMPASSION FOR A DOG THAT HAS NOT HAD A GREAT LIFE & WANTS NOTHING MORE THAN TO HANG OUT WITH YOU, REST IN A COMFY BED INSIDE, AND A SECURE GARDEN/YARD TO RELAX/SLEEP DURING THE DAY.  SHE WILL BE NO BOTHER AND SO EASY TO CARE FOR!  IN RETURN YOU WILL KNOW YOU HAVE GIVEN HER A WONDERFUL RETIREMENT LIFE.  TO SEE HER TAIL WAGGING & BEING TRANSFORMED TO A HAPPY SOUL IS JOYFUL TO US!  GRACIE DOES LIKE TO HOWL AT TIMES, IT IS A HOUND THING!!

This is one special girl to us!  She came into our care as a stray in a very bad state -- so thin with long existing sores on her rear and legs.  She was microchipped and registered to the IKC via a Hunt Club that had disbanded 2 years ago and there were no further details as to where she was sent or sold to.  She was not reclaimed and has been enjoying her new life of comfort and care.  We have watched her transformed from a low in spirit dog, to a happy and playful girl!  Gracie is one of those special dogs that we are so thrilled to witness such a broken down dog changed to a happy soul -- gaining weight and so enjoying our attention.  Being at the shelter is such a blessing for her -- she is a true joy!  She is driven by food -- so it has been so easy for us to train to her come and follow us!  She is great with other dogs and is in need of special home that can provide a large enclosure for her to run about and play & then welcome her to relax on a comfy bed near the sofa and fire!  Her spirit and personality will win you over when you meet her. 

ROCKY - COLLIE MALE

ROCKY - COLLIE MALE (APPROX. 3 - 3 1/2 YEARS)

Our special fella has been with us for over a year and we are very fond of him and his unique ways .  So smart and alert, he watches the cats in the yard and also barks when there is farm machinery in the vicinity.  Rocky is a very playful, energetic boy who loves to bound about with his many playmates - he adores having his buddies to rough and tumble with and enjoys canine tugging at toys, playing & chasing around his large enclosure - it's a dog thing! Rocky needs a home with another suitable dog with similar traits. He is clean in his kennel and would love a rural, quiet environment with NO cats. Rocky is a very smart collie who needs a little time to get to know you before he can display his true personality - he sometimes needs enticing to get his lead put on, but with routine and patience this will be achievable - understanding his little ways is key to giving this lovable guy a stimulating new home.

RE-HOMING REQUIREMENTS
