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.
