Annie was living like many hounds do down south, wandering the roads and looking for a scrap or two to fill her empty stomach. Unfortunately being a hound down south most likely means your purpose is to work or breed. Very few are actually considered pets. When Annie was picked up she was clearly emaciated, but full of milk due to puppies that were probably taken to be sold to suffer the same life as Annie had. Surprisingly this sweet but timid girl did not try to retreat when rescuers came to remove her head from the cookie jar that Annie had been scavenging for food. Unfortunately this girl’s past has understandably left her doubtful and a little leery of human kindness.
As of now Annie resides in a foster home with two other pups. She doesn’t mind them, but would be just as fine as a single pup. Annie was most likely never a house pet so she feels most in her element outdoors. Rather it’s sunning on the deck or chasing squirrels up trees Annie seems to come out of her shell when outside. Like any hound this girl can easily be won over by food, chicken in particularly. Treats of shredded chicken breast have helped her overcome some new found fears of living inside a house versus outside. Annie now joins her family for tv time on the couch, and wags her tail the only way she knows how. Needless to say Annie will need a family that is understanding, patient, and able to show her what it’s like to be a beloved pet. If you think you are this family email firstname.lastname@example.org
