The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one
that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the
wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world...When all other friends desrt, he remains.

This sweet boy is shy with people at first, but once he knows he is safe
with you, he is affectionate. He would love to have a playmate and a
home with someone who is patient with him so he will realize
most people are good and won't hurt him. He's going to be
a wonderful companion to a lucky family or person.

- D Adams -
Fergus came to Animal Aid as part of an amazing team effort to save 15 hounds just
hours before their time was up. Fergus is a dapper Treeing Walker Coonhound. The
perfect combination of stately and sweet, he yearns for a family of his own. He has
a great personality and enjoys a romp in the play area, a tickle behind his big ears,
and a snooze in the sun. Come visit this hunky hound!
We are so proud of our intake coordinator for being part of a multi-shelter rescue effort.

*Bristol - a shy dog

Bristol 4 2016.jpg - 27136 Bytes Walker hound / Female
Weight: 31 lbs.
Age: 2½ years

June 24, 2016

"No one...appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as a dog does."
- Christopher Morley -
At first Bristol backs away from strangers but after some soothing words of comfort
and a little time, she becomes less fearful. Although a little hesitant at first to have
a leash put on, Bristol enjoys going for a walk. Some leash training will help her.
She also enjoys playing with other dogs in her playgroup. All this sweet girl needs
is that special someone who will give her the love and attention she deserves.

This dog has separation anxiety and needs to have another dog in the family.
