Bless you..

I adopted 2 beagle mix dogs. They have never chased them although the Weimaraner loves to chase the cat if they are outside.

There should be a breed rescue group for that breed. Google the breed and contact them. You can foster her until they can help - or maybe keep her?

I don't have much experience with hounds of any type but what little I do know about them is that they all seem to love to travel. And I don't mean get in the car and go for a nice ride with you. I'm talkin' nose to the ground and see how many miles and hours those paws can keep going.

We had a pair of black and tan coon hounds in foster care and they were great escape artists, pushing past the foster mom any time she opened the gate to their run. They would disappear for hours but always returned, happy, hungry and tired. Worrisome never the less, even in the country with little traffic. We were very happy when an experienced hound owner adopted them.

I don't think they are notorious for jumping fences so a 4 footer should be enough. Maybe. I hope. Keep her on a long lead in the yard to see how she does.

She looks very sweet and those eyes, if she could only talk. Looks like she has not had the best of luck in life!
Hope there is a nice, loving home awaiting her somewhere.
She also looks very mellow.

hhhhmmmmm ...... my fence is about 4 feet high..... do these dogs jump??

i have pretty dense woods behind my house that are LOADED with squirrels, raccoons, possums, bunnies, etc.

i figured the coon hound would be much like a beagle in the desire to hunt.....
I would not leave her unattended to in the yard for quite some time. Keep an eye out, especially in the beginning. Also make sure she has one of those name tags from Petsmart from day one with your cell# , town and doggies name.
My son has a neighbor with a short legged, very overweight little pitbull and she jumps there 4 foot fence. You would never think it by looking at her, but she does!

Oh. She is just precious. Take her home. She will get along with the cats. Coon hounds are very loving pups and she will probably follow you around. They like people.

she is going to one of the other foster moms.......

this woman has been listed to foster for several months.... i just happened to be at petco with bailey yesterday, picking up her leash that had gone with charlie-boy when he was adopted...... they were just finished talking to the shelter lady on the phone and looked up and there i was.......

apparently she is a sweet, sweet, laid back girl.... so hopefully she will find her forever home quickly.......

i was talking to one of the directors today about setting up a meeting time and she mentioned the other foster mom..... i told her to go ahead and send her over there......... i suspect bailey would do better with a boy in our house, although as sweet and kind and gentle as she was with our transport girls in "her" car, i may have to rethink that........

Reminds me of Copper from The Fox & The Hound. I've never heard of the breed, but I've known a bluetick and a redbone a la Where the Red Fern Grows. Great dogs. I think hounds are generally pretty sweet natured, less'n you're bobcat or a coon or a hog.

Glad to know that Florence got a foster home (even if it wasn't with you). She sounds like a sweet dog and I'm sure she will make a great pet.
