Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.
Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Missy.  She is a beautiful, 3 1/2-year-old, 55 lb Tree Walking Coonhound.  Her tri-colored markings a stunning.  Missy has been very well looked after.  True to her hound traits, she is very social.  She likes all people and children. She likes dogs but can be dominant with other females.   Unfortunately, due to her prey drive instance, she does not like cats.   Missy has a short hair coat, not too coarse in texture.  She certainly does not like thunderstorms and being alone with no other dog in the home.  She is not crate trained, but she does not need to be.  She does not chew, is non-destructive, and fully housebroken.  Typical of the Coonhound, she loves mealtime.  Her food is measured out twice daily to ensure she doesn't overeat.  Having said this, she will counter surf as she will follow her nose to the food.  She will need to be walked on a body harness to ensure she doesn't slip her collar.   She rides very well in the car, and not too bad on a boat.  She is not a swimmer and doesn't like going outside when it is raining.  She is a couch potato, most of the time, and can be found on the lazy boy chairs in her foster home.  At night she sleeps on a couch.  She will need a fully fenced yard, a minimum  6 feet high wood, all the way around as she can scale fences, based on her breed.  Hounds do not like to be left without their humans for too long, so a family that is retired or a family member working from home is what we are looking for.   Missy is spayed, fully vaccinated,  4DX tested negative, dewormed, and on flea/tick prevention. She will come with a leash, collar, and body harness. A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian History of Compliance are mandatory to apply for Missy.
