In the south, female hounds are bred over and over again for hunting and then discarded if they do not perform well on the hunt.  So many of this specific breed fill local county kill shelters because they do not enjoy loud noises or the thrill of hunting wild game.  Instead, they prefer a warm house, a couch and affection from a person.  Meet Pumpkin, a Treeing Walker Hound mix that is ready to fill that place in your heart and on your couch.  Pumpkin is very sweet and gentle around people and other dogs.  She is up to date on all of her shots and ready to become your new best friend.  Will you give her a chance?

If you are interested in adopting Pumpkin, please visit www.ehrdogs.org and mention her by name on the adoption application.

We recently got a plea from a county shelter employee because Jessie was about be put down due to age and health.  She is an 8 year old plott hound mix who is heart worm positive.   She also has several mammary tumors as well as a large mass on her neck which were diagnosed inoperable. As with many hounds that come from the eastern North Carolina area, she was likely a hunting dog who was discarded to the county kill shelter when he was too old to be useful.  The county shelter employee says she is a shelter favorite with lots of personality.  Will you give this gentle little girl lots of comfort and love during her last days?   If you are interested in adopting Jessie, please visit www.ehrdogs.org and mention him by name on the adoption application.  Please note this is a hospice situation.

We don't have much information about George.  He is an 8 year old beagle hound mix who is heartworm positive.  He was likely a hunting dog who was discarded to the county kill shelter when he was too old to be useful.  His foster tells us he is super sweet, friendly with all people and other dogs and ready to find the perfect spot on your couch to live out his retirement.  If you are interested in adopting George, please visit www.ehrdogs.org and mention him by name on the adoption application.
