Ruby's Story...
Our Ruby may not be certified, but she sure is a true JEWEL! She is one sweet, petite(standing about 24 inches at shoulders/ weighing 50 lbs) Hound girl. She is approx. 3- 3/12 years old. It is a mystery to her foster parents as to why her former owners surrendered her to a kill shelter? She gets along very well with the 4 other Hounds in the family and even is nice to the little Chihuahua. She has been nose to nose with a few of the household cats and only seems a bit curious about them, not aggressive at all. However, if same cat is outside she will indeed chase! Ruby walks nicely on a leash, she rides in car like a lady and has been 100% crate and housetrained. She loves to run the fenced property chasing squirrels, yet also loves to just hang out with her people indoors.This foster family loves Coonhounds and finds them all to be very smart, most loving, loyal, easily trainable and with a charming personality that keeps you laughing. As of yet, she is not tested with children; but we have never seen a Coonhound that did not really like kids. We are sure Ruby will be no exception to this "Hound rule".

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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