Twister's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Twister's Story...
Twister was picked up on Hwy 99 on 6/15/16. He appears to be a walker coonhound mix. When he first came in he would not let us get near him and would run away. Now he loves attention and to follow us around when he is out of his kennel. He definitely has a coonhound bark and loves to sing! Gets along well with all the other dogs but will pick a fight over food.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Twister, a Lewisburg Treeing Walker Coonhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Treeing Walker Coonhound for sale in Lewisburg, or seeking a Treeing Walker Coonhound dog from a breeder in Lewisburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lewisburg already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lewisburg breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Treeing Walker Coonhound breeders who help with Treeing Walker Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lewisburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
