Dande/ADOPTED! needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping her get a new start?
ADOPTED! Dandee's new Mom took my Meet Your Match survey & she wanted a dog who was a "Couch Potato" & boy does that describe Dande! So happy that Dande will have a Mom who will have time to spoil her!
MYM Designation: Couch Potato
** Be sure to view Dande's video below so you can her true nature **
Let me tell you about my Dande Dande Girl …. As is often the case with hounds or even dogs who come from this location in KY – she was left on her own to starve to death. It took me months to get some meat on those bones of hers – now I may have overdone it a bit & she is actually a bit chunky! I love hounds & have found over the last 10 years or so that I started rescuing them – they are amazing in their level of devotion to anyone who shows them the slightest bit of kindness. They generally all have sweet & gentle souls & I love that they don’t have that pesky predisposition of some dogs of needing to be the TOP dog -- they are like “OK whatever! I’ll just curl up here on the sofa & rest. I’ve also been known to refer to my hounds as a little on the lazy side! Dande is not excessively verbal as some hounds are – again she’s just a sweet mellow kind of lady. She’s perfectly housebroken, she’ll go to the door & if you don’t notice she’ll come back & stare at you!
She is such a good girl, if you need to go out for the afternoon -- no problem, she’ll be right where you left her. Hounds seldom get in trouble with chewing or wrecking things. Dande is one of my favorite girls because I love her gentleness & when she’s happy which is every morning she does her “Happy Dance” outside – she is just so joyful knowing she’s safe & loved. She gets along with all the foster dogs here & if she finds the younger ones annoying she just walks away. No trouble here!
She did come with Lyme disease but I have treated it aggressively with 6 weeks of antibiotics. She did not have any symptoms, she just tested positive as I always test for Heartworm – she’s negative -- & tick-borne diseases. She is afraid of lightening & thunder & I'm sure thats because she equates that to shotguns going off as they did in KY when she was SUPPOSED to be a hunting dog but I’m sure she bolted at the first shot.
If she sounds like the kind of girl you would like to bring her into your life -- read our adoption requirements & if you qualified you can apply online on our website.
