Añejo Mockingbird

Used to be this place was mostly about music and pop culture, but it's slowly morphed into a launching pad for finding our foster greyhounds new homes. So be it. We love the hounds and are more than happy to use our modest little blog page to reach out and snag some attention for these greyt dogs... Oh, we'll still post the occasional odd music review or rant at the state of the Redskins from time to time, but they'll hafta take a back seat to the dogs 'til further notice

Witty part two

Miss Witty has been patiently waiting for someone to come see her and take her to her forever home! Folks, this very quiet and very calm hound is ready to prove to you how great and satisfying older dogs are to have around. Witty should be able to waltz right into your home with very little acclimation needed. She's house broken, walks well on the leash, gets along with other hounds and most larger dogs. Witty does not like cats and other small animals, however. She has a fairly high prey drive so those with kitties and other small critters will have to take a pass on this very nice hound.
Witty does like going for walks, so if you're looking for a calm walking companion, Witty's your girl. Witty is generally reserved and is not a big licker and she doesn't really give doggie kisses, either. She shows affection by following you around accepting ear scritches and other petting. Witty is in good health and has put on a needed pound or two since she's been in our care. She likes to play with stuffies and whatnot in small doses, but mostly she's just happy with chilling out and hanging around. 
if you're in the market for a no fuss, no muss hound who's happy laying around and doesn't require constant attention, please contact Denise and we'll set up a visit. This 9-yr-old is a super dog, please consider her for adoption if you're in the market for a hound.

Say hey to Witty

That very pretty brindle hound in the above pics is Witty! She's 9-yrs-old and has just been retired as a brood mom. Witty is very quiet and laid-back - she enjoys napping in the sun, as you can see. She has a really nice personality that's just beginning to come out more and more as she acclimates to household life. She does not look or act like a 9-yr-old! She could easily be mistaken for 4 or 5-yrs-old instead of 9. Witty is a tiny thing and I'm guessing she doesn't weigh more than 55lbs at the moment. Witty has had some teeth extracted but she can still eat kibble with the best of them! She's also sleeping well and does pretty good on the leash. We haven't tested her on stairs yet and haven't seen her react to cats yet (we haven't seen any since she's been here), though she definitely wants to go after rabbits and other backyard critters...
If you've ever wondered what older hounds have to offer, now is your chance to find out! Witty is already housebroken and will not chew on your furniture. She's happy to go for a walk or a quick romp around the yard but will not need to be exercised aggressively. In short, she'll adapt quickly and calmly to a new environment. Give an older hound a chance for some love and give Denise a call if you're interested.
