My story

Say hi to Blue. Blue was an owner surrender after a relationship separation. Blue is about 5 years old and is a bluetick coonhound..a handsome fella, at that! He definitely has that coonhound bray and is as sweet and gentle as he can be. Owner stated he does well around other dogs, cats, farm animals, children...pretty much everyone and everything but we only have kids and dogs to test him with here. So far,so good...doesn't seem to care that they are there and absolutely no reactivity. The third picture really speaks of his chill dog persona. Blue lives his life on island time and takes things as they come. He just saw the vet today and medically, he is somewhat of a mess right now. Poor boy has a raging ear infection and a pretty bad skin infection but he is starting treatment for both. He has a skin tag/mole on his upper lip/cheek area but should not be anything to be concerned about. He is heartworm negative thank goodness but does have a pretty heavy intestinal parasite load (hookworms) so we have given him a drontal for that. Because of his skin and ears, he doesn't smell so great right now but that will gradually clear up so he's smelling his best once the infections clear up. We also want to fatten this guy up some as he's a bit too thin for our liking. Blue weighed just under 60 pounds (58.4 to be exact on 6/15/22) and is starting to search for his forever home. Don't miss out on this great dog!
If interested in giving Blue his forever home, please submit your interest and your adoption application via email or text ONLY to 352-215-3260 (phone calls will not be answered or returned from this number). Blue's adoption fee will be $175 to help cover the cost of his vetting and daily care while with us.

More about this rescue

We are a small rescue started in September 2004. To date, we have adopted out over 600 dogs and cats who may not have had a second chance. We rescue the majority of our pets from kill shelters and have them thoroughly vetted prior to going to their new homes. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm checked(dogs) and dewormed. We also microchip our dogs so that they can always find their way home. Big and small, we work to rehome them all. We are always in need of donations so if you can help us to help our pets, please contact us! The more people who get involved, the more pets that we can save! You can also see our pets and/or fill out our adoption application on We look forward to hearing from you and making that "forever match"!
