Since I do really believe Black and Tan Coonhounds are like snowflakes, and no two are alike, when my beloved rescue B&T Moses succumbed to congestive heart failure, it seemed natural to open our hearts to find another B&T orphan. We put our intention out there to the universe; we looked, information arrived. Thanks to Jayne and Don, a dog snagged my heart. I engaged a friend and we drove 15 hrs with my current dog in tow and her "tester " dog, a wonderful lab named Toby. We met "George of the Jungle" and it was clear to all that he was destined to be mine.

Thank you, Jayne for knowing, Don for all the love and caring, Linda for her big heart and driving, Birdie and Toby for selecting, and this wonderful organization for catching these dogs as they fall into peril. Trout is here, fits in like this was his destiny, funny how that happens. We are all so very grateful.
