Foxhound
Born: 07/03/2009

Female

We recently received a call from a kind man who lives a few miles from the shelter. He told us that a lovely, friendly Foxhound had wandered onto his property and he was in fear for her life. She was covered in fleas and ticks, practically skeletal and had a severe injury to one of her back legs. When we got to the man's house and saw Carrie, we understood why he was so concerned. Carrie looked absolutely pitiful. We assume she had been hit by a car due to the condition of her hip and leg. We got her to the vet right away and she had immediate surgery to fix her up. All the while, Carrie showed us nothing but gratitude and patience. Now that she has healed, her personality has come shining through. She is a bit of a rascal, and amuses herself (and us!) with her silly antics. She is a thief of others' toys, beds and blankets. She bounds about the place, searching for some unsuspecting victim who is not watching his/her belongings carefully and BAM! they become Carrie's. She is a smart girl and plans her burglaries with great precision. Because she is so nice and so pretty, Carrie rarely gets any backlash from her friends. Maybe they figure that after all she's been through, she deserves a little fun. Carrie loves walking on the leash and sight-seeing. She is a delightful young lady with a heart of pure gold.
Buddy Messages (2)
Her Buddies, Bob and Lin Meehan, from Vienna, VA, sent her this message: "You are one beautiful foxhound girl. Our rescue foxhound Asia and rescue beagle Buddy wanted me to send a donation on your behalf. Asia has taught us what great dogs foxhounds are and we are sure you will find your forever home soon. Continue to enjoy yourself at HUA while you wait." Carrie sends Asia and Buddy lots of happy puppy kisses, and sends Lin and Bob many grateful hugs and joyful tail wags!
Her Buddies, Doug and Barb Barth, from Utica, Nebraska, sent her this message: "Dearest Carrie, You reminded me so much of my first dog, Judy, who was also a beagle. You look like such a sweetheart and I wish that I could bring to my home. But my family and I would love to sponsor your care and send you lots of hugs and kisses until you find your forever home. The Barth family" Carrie sends the Barth's many happy, grateful hugs and kisses.

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
