Trailhounds looking for loving homes
Jessie & Ripley
Jessie (left) is a 9 year old hound who is looking for her retirement home. She can be a little wary at first but once she gains confidence she loves everyone and thinks everyone loves her! She is not very keen on little doggies so would be best placed in a home without small dogs. She has been brought up around children, other larger dogs and a cat. Jessie loves attention and will be a very affectionate companion. Jessie is currently living in Cumbria.
Ripley is a 4 year old male. He loves to have attention, but equally is quite happy in his own company. He likes to please – but watch your food as he can be greedy! He just needs to learn some table manners! Ripley has been brought up with children and a cat. Ripley is currently in Cumbria.
Ripley and Jessie are being homed separately but are currently living in the same household. If you are interested in finding out more about them, please contact Eileen. Pictures to follow.

Pandy, lovely 3 year old hound
Fionn, 2 year old looking for a special home
Fionn is a 2 year old Irish trailhound who has touched the hearts of thousands of people all over the world. He was found lying under rubbish in woodland just before Christmas with a cracked skull and defied all the odds by surviving his terrible injuries. Fionn has been nursed back to health (including having major brain surgery) by Cork Dog Action Welfare Group (Dawg). Here is what Cork DAWG have to say about him:
The time has come for our special boy ” Fionn” to find his forever home. Thousands of you have been following his story over the last few months. He has had a long journey but we feel he is now ready to be adopted. It has taken us a while to discover his personality and needs. Fionn needs a home where he will have company during the day as he gets stressed if left on his own, he loves his walks and will need a large garden that he can explore in. He will cope fine being an only dog or with another female dog. We would like someone who is experienced with the breed if possible. Fionn loves his food and his home comforts. Whoever adopts our special boy will be very lucky and will have a faithful friend for life. If you think you can give Fionn the home he deserves please e-mail to email@example.com
Please note that Fionn is NOT being homed by Trailhound Welfare. You will need to contact Cork DAWG directly for details about adopting Fionn.

Hound in Somerset looking for home, Rushton Dog Rescue
Ben is an Irish hound who has lived at Rushton Dog Rescue for 2 years in Somerset. Here is what they say about him. Ben is dear fellow around 4 years old, neutered and good with other dogs and cats. Ben has had problems with his weight as we have found it hard to stop him trailing on our farm, he will trail all day long and we have to peel him away to even feed him,at night he comes in around 6 oclock and sleeps till 7 in the morning without moving and then trails all day again, he has amazing recall when out and about away from the farm, I am hoping you can help us find an experienced home for Ben or know of another rescue for him, he really is a special boy. I have enclosed some pictures of him and I am willing to transport him anywhere he needs to go, we have to move by the end of December so I am hoping to get him settled by then.Thankyou for reading this and I hope to hear from you soon. For more details ring Cindi on 07870771694. Ben is NOT being homed through Trailhound Welfare.
