Meet Whitney! This adorable girl was kept on a chain with very little food the first 2 years of her life and was severely emaciated when we rescued her. Whitney is very gentle and loving with people of all sizes, even young children. She loves to run and chase scents outside, yet snuggles on the couch and is perfectly behaved in a crate. Whitney likes to chase cats and other small creatures outdoors.
Whitney plays very well with other dogs, unless it involves an edible treat. She quickly claims any food left behind and has been fed separately from other dogs to prevent squabbles at meal times.
She is a precious and affectionate dog who loves attention, but does very well in the yard with a toy to chew on. She rides well in a car.She's a great watchdog with no aggression.
She deserves a very loving home!!!
Called 'the people's choice' among all coonhound breeds, the energetic Treeing Walker is perfectly suited for the task for which it was bred - tracking and treeing wild raccoons in their natural haunts. The breed's competitive spirit makes it an ideal choice for competitive coonhound events where the breed excels. The Treeing Walker Coonhound is alert, intelligent, active, courteous, and courageous with extreme endurance and the desire to perform. They are a medium energy level dog that is known to be brave, courteous, and smart.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small,non profit, all volunteer organization that has been dedicating our spare time to save Southern dogs in need for over 7 years. We are located in Knoxville TN. Our goal is to reduce the number of dogs in the "high kill" overpopulated shelters in our region and find them permanent loving homes. We are not breed specific, but are committed to the breeds and mixes that tend to be overly abundant in the southern states. We adopt to both local families and families in the Northeast.We place most of our orphans in homes in the northeast by offering USDA certified transport services.
