Chessie/Squishy is a LnF Dog Rescue 'Bona-Fide Kid Lover!' she just thinks they are wonderful which is great since not all dogs even like kids let alone love them  She is a Purebred Strawberry Blonde Red-Tick Coonhound Puppy Chessie/Squishy. You may know nothing about hounds, but we would love to introduce you to these magnificent dogs! Once you meet one, you’ll understand what I mean. All Hounds are noted for having the softest ears – their ears always feel like velvet, BUT Chessie is the first hound that I’ve rescued which is about 30+ that her entire BODY feels like velvet. She is so amazingly soft you just can’t help but  “Squish” her when you are petting her --- which is why we’ve nicknamed her “Squishy!”  
See those ears & the loose skin under her neck? She needs to grow into them & will when she’s full-grown.  Chessie is such a baby, she is all legs & not very graceful yet. In keeping with her breed, she loves to play with all the dogs here as long as they will let her. She will be about 70 + lbs. Full grown. 
Chessie is NOT a “hunting dog” we know this because she was seen being thrown from a moving truck in KY but a Good Samaritan saw her thrown & rescued her! Sadly this is just one way that some people in KY dispose of unwanted dogs as we’ve heard this story too many times. We have a new Collie mix pup Carlee who was shot with an arrow!  
So that you know, I didn’t know anything about hounds until about ten years ago when I rescued my first Foxhound Ellie Mae who had a broken leg.  I found that  “hounds” have an exceedingly gentle disposition. They are SUPER friendly to people & adore other dogs since they are by nature pack dogs. They can be adopted as an “only child” but they do love to be with other dogs --- but we discourage living with kitties.  Are they verbal? Yes, they are, again it’s in their hunting nature to bay when they’ve located the hunter’s prey.  When they do bay these days, I believe they are communing with their ancestors! They also bay when they are lonely or hungry so as long as you make them a part of your family & give them lots of attention the baying will be minimal.

As with all LnF Dog Rescue pups/dogs, they live in a foster home, have all their shots, spayed/neutered, microchipped, crate & potty trained -- although you will have to participate in keeping then on track! Puppies are paper trained. They also go home with a complimentary Lupine Martingale collar & leash. If interested read our adoption requirements & if you can meet or exceed them, you can apply online at our website. An installed fence at least 4 foot high is required & we do not accept any type of electric fence – no exceptions. Some dogs do need a 6-foot wood or vinyl fence & if so it’s noted on their profile.

About LnF Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

LnF Dog Rescue is a small foster based dog rescue that saves sheltered or abandoned dogs.

We are not a shelter, we rescue puppies/dogs from shelters. Our dogs are selected based on having gentle, sweet, & loving temperaments. They are socialized in our foster homes until they are ready to be adopted.

For complete details about our rescue & our dogs visit our website at

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since all of our pups/dogs are in foster care, we do require a pre-approved adoption application prior to meeting them in person.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoption fees and policies are listed at our website:

LnF Dog Rescue

All pups/dogs are already spayed/neutered, live in foster homes, are housebroken, crate-trained, up-to-date with all shots, & microchipped & have 30 days of FREE Pet Insurance.

Most importantly they all have sweet & gentle dispositions & get along with other dogs.

You must have current vet references & must have raised a dog or pup as an adult.

~ We require experienced pet owners only unless the dog is listed as "suitable for first time pet guardian" ~

~ A fence is always mandatory and must be installed.
We will not consider any applications that do not have an installed fence.

We do NOT accept ANY type of electric or underground fence. *** There are no exceptions ***

We only accept a physical fence 4 foot or higher. Some dogs require a higher fence & that is noted in their profile.

If you are interested in a certain pup/dog, please read each profile to be sure the pup/dog matches your lifestyle. Our strict adoption requirements are based on our years of experience & unless you can meet our minimal adoption requirements .... you will not be approved.

These are not *suggestions* that we will negotiate, these are our requirements to adopt from LnF Dog Rescue.
