I’m Lulu, a three year old Bluetick Hound looking for my forever family.

I’m a very good looking 3 year old, 60 lb bluetick coonhound. Like so many blueticks, I’ve got a winning, gentle personality. I am a very playful girl, I love my toys and will always bring you a tennis ball to throw. In my foster home I am learning all my commands and am getting really good at walking on a leash. Walks are one of my favorite activities, so it’s a good thing I’m so smart and picked up this leash walking skill so quickly.

I’m living with a very nice human in an apartment in Alexandria. Yes, I have a really beautiful hound howl but I don’t see the need to be vocal too often. I’m a pretty quiet girl. My foster’s home is very nice and I am house trained so I keep it that way.

I am very active and my ideal home would have a well-fenced yard or someone who can take me on a lot of long walks. I get along with pretty much everyone – other dogs and humans of all ages. I haven’t met any cats yet but I’d probably like them too.

Before I came to Homeward Trails I lived in the Danville shelter for more than two years after someone gave me up when I was just a puppy. I am so happy to be finally living in a home again and eager to find my forever home..

If you are interested in meeting me, email my friend Lois at LoisLHT@gmail.com.

Foster Update (9/10): “Despite being nervous, he’s such a sweet dog. He’s already getting along well with my other two dogs. He is already nonstop following me around my apartment, and refuses to leave my side. He is a bit timid with touching him, and will shy away when I lean in to pet him. But once I’m petting him, he loves it. Copper’s going to make someone wildly happy when he finds the right family for him. In the meantime, we’ll keep on working on his confidence here.”

Mr. Hank is a really sweet and laid-back dog. He is great with kids and is playful with his young hound foster sister. While he lives currently with cats, we can tell he’d prefer to chase them, so we think no cats for him. He also seems to do much better with another dog around, so we’d love to find him a place with a playmate.

His favorite game is tug-of-war. He seems like he has trouble settling down until his people are settled, then he likes to lay down near his people, sometimes with a good chew toy. He is fully house trained, good on a leash, and hasn’t chewed anything other than dog toys. He is a great dog!

Falls Church, VA 22043

Meet Flaca!

This sweet senior girl was rescued from Puerto Rico and is looking for her forever home where she can enjoy retirement. Just look at that sweet face!

Don’t let her age fool you – she’s still got plenty of spunk and a very loving, happy personality!! There’s rarely a moment when her tail isn’t wagging. She gets along with other dogs and loves pets from everyone she meets. She does great on a leash and loves going for walks and exploring new things to sniff. She’s also got excellent house manners and is crate trained and (mostly) housetrained. Flaca is perfectly content napping on a soft bed, playing with toys or snuggling on the couch for belly rubs. She’s got a fairly low energy level, and a quiet home would be ideal for her.

***Foster Update: Flaca is house trained and crate trained. She gets along well with other dogs (though she’s a bit shy at first). She enjoys playing with toys and jumping up at down anytime there’s food or when you get home! She is very easy to take care of and does not require a ton of hands on care – she can go on long walks but she also likes just hanging out at home. She’s got a great energy and really loves people. She has been so great to have around! ***
