“Hi! I’m Hadley, a 50 pound Redbone Coonhound, a pretty girl with big floppy ears.  I am about to turn 12 years old and I find myself at this point in my life needing a different home. I am a Redbone Coonhound, a pretty girl with big floppy ears. I have lived my entire life with one family and hope the next family I have, will be for always..

“I love humans, even little ones as long as they are old enough to know to be gentle to me. My ideal home would be one where people are home most of the time and I’m not left alone for long hours. I can get a little anxious when my current family leaves the house. They give me a medication called Trazodone if they are going to be gone for a long time. I also get this same pill when someone is coming to visit as I get super excited when people come over! Usually I’ll grab a toy and show it to the visitors and after a little while, I’ll calm down. I do my best to behave, really I do!  I am just a friendly girl. Maybe I could learn some new things in my new home? Perhaps my adopter can work on some training with me?  I just hope to find someone who is patient and kind. Adjusting to a new home can be hard for a dog, especially when they have had the same one for so long.

“If you have a home with other animals-dogs, cats or other small critters, I am not the dog for you. I was attacked by dogs at a dog park when I was 3 years old and I just never got over it. I’d like to think that I’m all the companion you need when it comes to animals.

“My people will tell you that I am good on leash. I enjoy a walk a day with them. The beach is a fun place to go and explore! Keep me on leash for my safety please. If it’s sunny out, I like to find a place in the sun to bask in. A home with a securely fenced yard would be nice to go out in. I need a potty break about every 5-6 hours. I am a smart girl who knows how to use a dog door when I need to. Most of the time I am pretty chill. My people let me sleep on the bed with them at night, that’s so cozy and we keep each other warm.

“I must admit that I will bark at the doorbell, the mailman, when a car arrives at our house or other dogs passing by.  Yes, your typical dog! So if you have a neighbor who won’t appreciate my announcement barking, it is just not meant to be for us. Dogs bark, fish swim, cats meow…or something like that!  I can still manage stairs at this time in my life.

“My humans will share vet information with you if you are interested in giving me a home. My vet found a low grade heart murmur last year but at that time, I didn’t need anything for my ticker.  Please only adopt a senior dog if you can afford their vet care and good quality dog food. Just like humans, we dogs become more reliant and need more care as we age. My heart should be routinely listened to for changes and I should have senior wellness exams at least once a year. I’d like to be around for as long as possible so that I can share my love with a family who will appreciate me forever.”
