Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    Boris could use a home with no kids and a large yard to sniff around. He is a calm dog that sticks to himself. Boris is hand shy and needs someone willing to work with him more. My girlfriend and I have had him for about a year and now have a baby on the way and do not feel very comfortable with him around children. Please help Boris find a home where he can be happy.

Animal ID: Shelly BellyShelly Belly (female)

Foxhound Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    If you're the kind of soul who would like to give a home to a dog who isn't perfect and probably never will be, please read Shelly's bio and submit an application. She needs a calm and responsible adopter who understands some dogs with an unknown past are just never going to be 'normal' well-socialized creatures. Someone who is willing to take that on and be her comfort zone without feeding into her fears or pushing her too far too fast. Someone who is really into dog training and developing that kind of bond with their dog. Are you that kind of someone? If so, she's been waiting for you for 2 years! ... (Read More)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shelly Belly is medium energy, solidly housebroken, not destructive, and does not need to be crated. She is fostered with other dogs but does best in play one-on-one with a dog slightly smaller than her. Actually, we believe she would be perfectly content to be the only dog. She needs an adults-only home and a fenced yard at least 4 feet high. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shelly is nervous/shy and needs a quiet life with a human who won't push her beyond her limits. She's a talker. She communicates verbally. If you're afraid of barking, Shelly is not the dog for you. Due to her vocal nature, she is not suitable for condos/townhomes/apartments. She is more suited to country living. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shelly cannot live with cats, birds, or small/furry critters. We won't place her in a home with children because of her vocal nature...we believe this might be scary for kids so we won't expose them to that. Plus she probably couldn't handle the comings and goings of their friends. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shelly's age is estimated to be 6-7 or more years old...we're beginning to notice some graying/whitening on her face so she's definitely not a youngster, but we don't think she's a senior either...she's too 'zippy' in the yard to be an old dog. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- She weighs 42 lb and is the softest dog we've ever touched. She craves physical contact with you and will verbally ask you for this. She is beyond delighted to see you when you come home after being out for 8 hours or 5 minutes. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- She's a mutt with a sort of collie-looking layout to the colors on her coat (the white stripe around her neck/shoulders). There's probably some sort of herding breed (smooth coated collie per haps?) in her mix along with maybe some sort of hound. We named her Shelly because she reminds us of Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory. The 'Belly' got added onto her name because our trainer told us it was harder for dogs to bark when laying down. Well Shelly can easily bark when in the down position, but if we roll her over on her back and get her to expose her belly, she goes quiet. So she has learned the 'belly' command to get her to do this when we want to stop her from barking. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Because of her shy and nervous nature, there will be a multi-visit process to help transition her to your home.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Foxhound in Pennsylvania
    Foxhound Dogs can make good pets in Pennsylvania if they match your IifestyIe. The American Foxhound is a fierce pack hunter with a gentle and affectionate disposition when among people. Foxhounds are especially sociable with other dogs. This breed is a natural hunter and is not a good choice for a household with pets other than dogs. American Foxhounds are generally good with children. Some are very protective and others are friendly toward strangers. The American Foxhound can be somewhat difficult to housebreak, will follow interesting scents, and may take off after squirrels, etc. These dogs are best suited to a home with some acreage.

    The American Foxhound is descended from English Foxhounds which came to America in the mid seventeenth century. American Foxhounds were once used to track Native Americans.
