Colette is a beautiful Red Tick Coonhound with an incredible amount of love to give to her new family.
âColette was found as a stray and unfortunately spent some time in a shelter, until Last Day came and rescued her; now she is enjoying lots of hugs, kisses and good food. She is house trained, does great in a crate, and knows simple commands such as “sit” and “stay.” Colette is a typical hound dog and relishes in being outside. She is inquisitive and eager to follow new scents, so being on a leash is a must for her and she would love a fenced yard to run around in. While she does enjoy walks and runs outside, she also appreciates a good cuddle next to you on the couch where she can relax knowing she is loved. She does best when she can be wherever you are, including sleeping in the same room at night. Colette loves to spend time with her foster brothers (dogs), and enjoys lying down next to them in the sun. She would appreciate a home with another dog. She is beginning to play more with her toys and loves to carry around stuffed animals. Colette does become nervous around loud noises, so a relaxed home with older or no children would probably be best for her.
Colette was heartworm positive when she first came to the rescue, however she has undergone treatment and will have her final test to show she is heartworm free in October.
Colette is a wonderful companion with lots of love to give, just looking for her forever home. Will that be yours?
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.
The Petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.
