“There are Georgia Redbone Hounds and Tennessee Redbone Hounds, but they didn’t look anything like my West Virginia Redbone Hound.
We tried to get a dog through a rescue agency but it seemed harder to adopt a dog than a baby.
All the inspectors to prove you would be a good parent were trying.
We went to a rescue shelter in Pennsylvania since we have a house there.
We saw a dog we really liked but he was five years old and had been returned several times because he had issues with blankets.
We decided we were too old to fight a dog over blankets.”
