Loretta is a true survivor! After being picked up as a stray, she found herself in the back room of a high kill shelter in NE Georgia. Very few dogs leave the back room. The public is not allowed there for various reasons which baffles rescues, volunteers, and the public, but this is a conversation for another day. Sweet Loretta had her babies in this shelter – on a cold concrete floor with a thin sheet to keep her and her newborns warm.
Loretta is a beautiful Redtick English Coonhoud who prefers snuggling with her foster family while watching TV. She is very curious about the TV. She just stares and tilts her head when it’s on. One of the joys of fostering is watching an abandoned, unloved dog discover life indoors with a human family. Lorretta LOVES her thick, comfy bed. She will lay there for hours.
She is gentle with people, other dogs but does not like cats. Loretta is crate trained and has not had an accident in the house. When her foster family is not home, she is crated. She walks well on a leash but will pull when she catches a scent.
Meet Patsy, one of Loretta’s (Redtick English Coonhound) puppies. We think Patsy’s daddy is a black lab which makes for a stunning combination. Patsy and her siblings were born around August 1st in a high kill shelter in NE Georgia. Their momma was skin and bones when picked up by Animal Control as a stray and it’s a miracle any of them survived. Patsy and her family not only survived but are thriving and ready to find their forever families.
The puppies have had all age appropriate vaccines, multiple deworming’s, and are full of puppy love and energy. If they are as smart as their momma, it won’t take long for them to figure out potty training. Since momma is considered a working breed, these pups should be in an active family. There are seven females and two males in the litter. We estimate them to be approximately 50 lbs when fully grown. The adoption fee covers spay/neuter, microchip, and any additional boosters needed.
