Adopt a Hound / Mixed

Hound / Mixed Dog

Suzy the Dog needs a home

Hi … my name is Suzy and here are some things you need to know about me:

Approximate age/birthdate:  born late 2015

Weight/size: 27 lbs

Housebroken:  YES (if you do your part and take her out regularly)

Crate trained:  YES

Personality:  rowdy, playful, energetic, happy, curious

Energy level:  Moderately high

Fenced yard required?:   YES … she definitely has the nose of a hound and will find herself in trouble if she doesn’t have a fence to contain her.  She loves to get outside and explore but would be off and gone if not fenced in.  An electric/underground fence will not be acceptable … she needs a physical fence.

Does he/she jump fences?  NO

Leash walk:  YES but she is constantly ‘tracking’ and pulls when she gets excited

Obedience training:  No

Riding in vehicles:  RIDES OK … gets a little stressed at first         

Spayed/neutered:   YES

Up-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YES

Microchipped:   YES

Social with other dogs:  YES … but her energy can be overwhelming to more laid back pups

Social with cats: NO CATS … her energy and urge to chase would be too much for most cats

Good with children:  Suzy would probably be OK with older children that she couldn’t topple over!  She would not mean to hurt any child but she is rowdy and rough.

Adoption donation: $175

We don’t have a lot of info about Suzy other than she was a stray someone had decided to give a home and then that home went away due to no fault of Suzy’s.  She really is a sweet girl and she just needs love and attention … and training! 

Sweet Suzy is a beautiful little girl.  She could be part dachshund or part basset … something long and low.  And whatever the mix, she is very sweet.  Her color and markings are stunning and her eyes are so expressive.  She smiles and looks at you like she really wants to talk to you.  She likes to play outside and often ignores the other dogs … but she really loves people.  She would love to have a running or hiking partner to help her work off some of her energy. 

If you think Suzy might be the perfect pup for you, please go to and complete your adoption application online.

We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits.  You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references.  Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process.  We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible.

When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Suzy picks you too.

If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed.

Please feel free to email [email protected] if you have additional questions.
