Ruthie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Ruthie's Story...
Ruthie is a high-energy, soft, sensitive, quirky, cuddly and sweet, four-year-old, 50-pound, female tri-color Treeing Walker Coonhound looking for a loving guardian.

Ruthie is a gentle, wiggly soul who is full of kisses, snuggles and tail wags. She is good with most other medium to larger dogs, but not cats. She enjoys playing with her toys and will take them into her crate to play. She would love a home with a fenced-in yard. Once she’s had enough exercise, she calms down and is happy to hang out on the couch with you.

Ruthie is best with female humans, and can be nervous around certain men. She thrives on routine and will do well with a patient dog-lover willing to continue her training and give her plenty of exercise.

To meet and possibly foster or adopt Ruthie, please contact Samantha at or 773-615-9864. Ruthie is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. Her adoption fee of $100 benefits Pals Place Rescue Group.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Coonhound breeders who help with Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
