Original story, Nov 2012: Ann is a 2-yr old redbone coonhound 50-lbs, dews on and natural tail. There might be some vizsla in there too because she is more people oriented than the typical redbone but we'll never know for sure. She is not quite as needy as a vizsla but loves to sleep in the bed or snuggle in your lap. Ann plays well with dogs of all sizes and is good with cats. She can clear a 6-ft fence if left unattended but has not offered to jump the fence in her foster home. We always recommend keeping any dog inside when you're gone anyway for their safety and peace in the neighborhood. Ann is a happy girl who expects never to meet a stranger, loves car rides and is looking for a home where she can snuggle in bed with you when not out enjoying the great outdoors.

Nov 28 update: Ann is quiet in a crate when if you put a blanket over the front but I have left her loose in the house for longer and longer periods with nothing chewed or any other crime. She is super comfy on the couch next to you. She is very agile, she loves to leap over the flower pot in the corner of my back porch to get to the yard, instead of going around. She comes in from the back yard as soon as you call her. On a hike (with her on leash) she will bay at any other dog we come near and I think she just wants to go visit so bad she can hardly stand it. She will bay in the house watching squirrels out the window. She does make some noise when I leave the house without her but not for very long. She is hilarious and will attract attention wherever you take her! She does put her feet on the counter and did pull one item off already but listens well when told not to. She doesn't really jump up on you except for this cute backward jump thing where she jumps up and puts her back against you quickly, like she's been taught not to put her feet on you or something.

Apr 2013: Ann waited 3 months for the perfect home to find her and another month for them to find a house where they could be a family. During that time Kayme & Brian took Ann on many outings, overnights and training classes until finally the magic day came for her to go home with them for good. Enjoy your pretty little redhead and send pics of your adventures together!

Feb 2014, Brian writes: Annie has become a great dog for us. She loves coming mountain biking, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and generally being our adventure buddy. Then she really likes curling up on the couch with us (or on top of us). There isn't a day gone by that she doesn't have us both laughing from her being her goofy self. She is a wonderful part of our lives!
