Red is available for adoption now at HSHV

This affectionate gal was found by a couple vacationing in North Carolina. She had a snake bite on her muzzle. They took her for the medical care she needed, but since there was no animal shelter in the area, and they could not locate any owners, they brought the 8-year-old Redbone Coonhound mix back home to Michigan. Unfortunately they can't keep the dog, now named Red, but they are hoping she will find a caring family from the Humane Society of Huron Valley.

Red is a very sweet lady. She enjoys going for walks and sniffing out everything as hound dogs love to do. She has that beautiful hound dog howl of a bark when she gets excited and her tail about wags off her body with joy when she gets to spend time with people. Red is not very interested in toys, but she loves treats! Our cat interaction revealed that Red would be far too interested in chasing a kitty, so Red will need a cat-free home.

If you have a fenced-in yard or some property that Red could enjoy exploring, she would be very happy. Even though we think Red to be about 8 years old, she acts much younger and is hoping you can give her the happy home she is missing right now.

HSHV is open daily at 11 a.m. for adoptions. All pets available for adoption are spayed/neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.
