My Story

Date into Rescue: 8/25/2017 adopted and returned 9/2019

Reason for being in rescue: Pulled from a SC shelter. Fannie was found as a stray.  She was placed in a home last year but had to return due to the health of her owner.

Special Needs:  In early 2019, Fannie had a mammary tumor that was malignant. When removed, there were good margins. Fannie now has generalized proliferative gum disease which is covering most of teeth especially upper left maxillary area


What kind of home would be best for me: Fannie is looking for her retirement home somewhere - maybe on a farm - where she can bask in the sunshine and go on lots of nature walks. She is a diva and slept in the bed with her owner. She loves hotdogs, they are her favorite treat.  She'll dance for a hotdog treat when she is indifferent to other foods.

What is my personality like: Fannie is an older lady but not too old! She still loves to wander through the woods and play a little with dogs of her size who are laid back. When she is outside there is nothing stopping her nose from working. Fannie could sniff and roam all day long and come home to soak her paws and take it easy. That would be the perfect life for Fannie! She doesn't ask for much! Fannie gets carried away while on a leash so a harness would be best to walk her with since she likes to pull.

Fannie's story is short and sweet... she was found as a stray in South Carolina and taken to a local shelter.. but now she is at the farm! We found her a great home last year but health declined and she came back to us.  She seems happy here.  Fannie loves to run in our play fields and is very active for her age.  We give her as much time in he field as possible.  She loves to sunbathe.  

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly.. but it is hard to get Fannie's attention with her nose to the ground. As many hounds, she is more of a roommate than a cuddly companion. She loves her family but she has her own dance space. She'll respect your space and you can respect hers. 

Tips and Tidbits: Est birthdate 08/30/2011,  Fannie would like to be an only dog or she could do well with laid back dogs. She does not want a hyper, active dog in her home. She has helped foster kittens

House trained:  Fannie is one of our dogs we allow free roam of her cottage. She and her best buddy Liberty sleep on dog beds, not in crates.  Let our regularly, Fannie has proven reliable in the house.

Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
