UPDATE!!! I got a new Buddy

Well, after giving it a lot of thought, we picked up my new friend today. She is a 2 year old Bloodhound/St Bernard mix and she is just wonderful. It is my Fathers day gift from my wife and son. We drove 2 hours today to get her, and it was worth the trip. We are so glad we could save this gem.

That's an unusual mix. Bloodhounds aren't common dogs. What's her story?


And that doggie has got to have some immense paws.

What a face!!

That one will eat you out of house and home.

We've also found our "hybrids" to be healthier than our purebreds.

Non-scientific to be sure.

And that doggie has got to have some immense paws.

Well, the family we got her from adopted her from a foster home when she was 11 weeks old. The mom and dad are in the process of getting a divorce, and the mom just can not handle three children, and 2 dogs and one cat. She really did not want to part with Hannah, but she was just too big for her to care for.

Hannah came from down south, but I have to go throught all the paperwork to see where. She is just a calm dog with a great manner, and I am so lucky to have her.



Yes, her paws are huge.......

Hannah looks like a wonderful dog Capecodder. I love her markings and coat and kind face. Somehow I think she knows she's found a permanent home.

Now that is one sweet looking dog! Mixed breeds are awesome and I am sure she has a great personality that will prove to be just the kind of dog you want and need; one that is a really good friend to pal around with everywhere. I am happy to see that you chose to get a good dog that needed a good home instead of being a customer for more puppies. I hope she brings you a lot of happiness!
