River is an amazing, young Treeing Walker Coonhound with looks to kill who is kind, sweet and ever so gentle. She came to GJCR from a friend of her foster mom after he found she would not make it as a working dog.  She is in excellent health and shows the personality and confidence of a well loved hound. River gets along wonderfully with all ages and temperaments of dogs and is amazing with kids.  She is still learning to accept cats as friends. But I feel, with time, she will learn to share a home with them with no issues.

As River is only 10 months old, she needs plenty of playtime and structured exercise but also enjoys a good nap. She is quick to learn and has mastered "sit", has an excellent recall and is coming along nicely on "stay" and "leave it". River walks well on a leash, is crate trained and has had only minimal accidents in the house while in foster care. Anyone who accepts River into their home will be taking in an amazing young gal. She is spayed and current on all vaccines,and preventions.


Please Note:   We are all volunteers and busy taking care of our foster dogs so please take the time to fill out our on-line adoption application if you are interested in more information about any of the hounds that we have for adoption. Filling out our application does not obligate you to adopt in any way.  It does, however, help us to determine if the dog that your interested in would be a good match for your family and lifestyle. 

All of our dogs are fully vetted.  They have been vaccinated, altered, microchipped and heartworm tested and on prevention.


ADOPTION FEE:  $400.00

About Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue

Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue is a small, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the memory of my beloved coonhound Jake. Our volunteers are dedicated to helping homeless and abandoned coonhounds find loving and permanent homes as indoor pets. We are based and operate in Ontario. We have been rescuing these wonderful hounds since 2003. We are also a member of Coonhound Companions where our goal is to educate the public about misconception that hounds do not make good family pets. We want to share our love of coonhounds with the whole continent, with hopes of inspiring dog lovers everywhere to consider adopting a coonhound.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptive homes are required to go through a screening process that includes a telephone interview, filling out an application, reference checks and a home visit. An adoption donation is required to offset some of the costs incurred in caring for and re-homing each coonhound. Bluetick Gentle Jake's Coonhound Rescue remains committed to each animal for the rest of its life and if, at any time and for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we require that the hound be returned to us.
