Story
Our Handsome is that exceptional, all around family dog that is rare in rescue. He loves everybody and has not flinched at all during a rescue process that leaves lesser dogs rattled. We've been trying to piece together Handsome’s backstory, and here's what we know for sure: He was found as a stray in North Carolina, and Animal Control Officers handled him with ease when they brought him to the county shelter. The shelter vet treated several open wounds that suggest Handsome had either been a Hunting dog, or that he had been attacked by another animal in the wild. Either way, these are not signs of a good life well lived. Handsome’s luck improved when the shelter transferred him to our Connecticut Rescue last month so that we could find him a forever home. Throughout the chaotic rescue process, Handsome has been a gentle sweetheart. He is full of life and personality, and at three years old, he still has a bit of puppy mojo. He can be shy when meeting new people, but after five minutes, he warms up and is like a kid in a candy shop, soaking up new experiences with sheer glee. He is a super dog that would do well in any type of environment. Handsome appears to be an American Foxhound, and he lives up to their lovable reputation. He is a large dog, at a lean weight of 55 pounds. His short, flat tri-colored coat is largely black and tan, with white markings. He has a million dollar profile! Handsome is a very gentle boy, and would be a great addition to an active family with older, dog savvy kids. He is friendly and will give everyone in the family equal attention. Handsome is not one to play favorites, and he is very stranger friendly. Handsome could also join an active single or couple, who can provide at least one to two leisurely leash walks, so that he can meander and stop to smell the "roses." Scent hounds are extremely easy to manage because the leisurely walk that engages their senses, provides much needed mental and physical exercise. Handsome has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He has been neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings. If you are interested in Handsome, please write to Angelsfrgod@aol.com or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Story
Meet June Bug a medium sized, 47 pound foxhound mix at just 9 months. She is so darn cute with those long floppy ears, alert eyes, and a black nose. Her tri color coat adds to her appeal. And another plus: She loves everyone she meets! She is estimated to be a large sized gal of over 50 pounds when full grown. Foxhounds have great personalities: even-tempered, gentle, affectionate and love to be around people as much as possible. They are active and curious (as hound dogs, they love to have their nose to the ground). Oh, and do not forget their famous barks! She is comfortable around other canines, adults, and kids. It is not known if she has met a cat. As to training, it is best to start with a refresher course in crate, house, and leash training. Jue Bug will need the right guidance mixed with consistency, repetition, and patience. Cheerful praise and lots of treats will go a long way in helping her master those daily routines. It will be worth the time and effort!Having established a bathroom routine (always after eating, playing, sleeping, and before bedtime), been given lots of attention and exercise, she will be ready to be introduced to her new crate which must be a cozy, warm, and positive place. In the beginning she will only use it for short periods of time. Eventually, the time can be increased based on her comfortableness with this second home, maybe up to 4 hours. Several daily short (30 minutes) walks will support leash skills as well as socialization skills. It will be a new world to her with all the new sights, smells, sounds, and people along her walk. A secure back yard would be a plus as it would give her free time to play and burn off energy. Please note that she cannot be a running companion before the age of one when her growth plate closes.At home she would benefit from lots of attention and mental stimulation in the form of activities and play toys. That will keep her from being bored. Are you willing to take on the task of helping her transition to a new life where she is loved and appreciated? If yes, read on.The adoption fee for Jung Bug is $500. That includes the cost of spaying/neutering, up to date vaccinations, foster care, rescue and transportation fees.
