Arrival Story:

Jade was adopted out last year to a young man in Ohio. Jade had to be worked in the field (hunting) and given plenty of excersise. She was not compatible to my lifestyle. I came home one day and she destroyed a new leather couch and chair. I was called at home or work regularly to pick her up at someone elses she jumped my fence. Not even an electric fence could stop her. I eventually came to the conclusion I had to find her a home compatible to was she was bred to do. She is very different than the Beagles and Basset hounds I am used to. They tend to be a lot more laid back unlike the American Foxhound. Otherwise, she was very lovable and loved other dogs and children. She was very docile, but had way too much energy. I hated to adopt her out because she was a very strikingly beautiful dog that always commanded attention where-ever I was. I had many hunters take interest in her when I put her up for adoption. I had over 20 calls of people wanting to adopt her. Fortunately this time, I made sure she did not go to a family home, but rather to someone that hunted game. She had been put in the pound once already because she was not compatible to family type living arrangements.
