Dandelion is a gorgeous girl who joined our rescue a few months ago. She was found with her sister, Divia, as country strays in rural Virginia. 

Animal Control Officers corralled the girls and brought them to the overcrowded county shelter, where they were about to be euthanized. Shelter workers worked frantically to get them transferred to our rescue before their time was up.

Dandelion navigated the rescue process with ease, and while she seems shy at first, she opens up easily once the human love starts flowing. She is extremely affectionate and would make an outstanding family dog. Dandelion loves people and could easily live happily with older kids. Her gentle, loving nature is on full display. She definitely wears her heart on her sleeve. 

Dandelion is a large dog at 67 pounds, but could easily gain 3 pounds to reach normal weight. She is active but does not have an over-the-top energy level. She requires a couple of leisurely, "smell the roses" daily walks but then is content to rest or take a nap. She would do well in a family setting, or with a single, or retired folks. Dandelion will be happy as long as she is loved. 

Dandelion loves other dogs and has become a superstar in our large dog playgroup. She easily could join a multi-dog home with other friendly dogs, but we have not had her around cats. She is available solo, or with her sister Divia, to anyone interested in a well matched pair. 

Dandelion is a Black and Tan Coonhound. As a scent Hound, her instincts are a mixed bag of gun dog attributes. Her ideal adopter would be an active single or couple, who can include her on hikes, runs, or walks, camping, or any kind of outdoors activity that will challenge mind and body.

Dandelion has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained.  Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. She has been spayed, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings.
