#PawPromise Adoptable Dog of the Week: Victoria

Hi! My name is Victoria, which means “victory.” I’m hoping to win the heart of a forever pet parent. Will you help me?

Please tell everyone you know that I’m a three-year-old Foxhound mix who started out the year as a stray. I was starving when I was found, and I’m still trying to pack on a few pounds. I also had to have an operation for a large hernia after I was rescued, but now I’m all better! Do you know anyone who is looking for a sweet fur baby who loves children?

Spayed and up to date on her vaccinations, Victoria is just one of the many adoptable dogs, puppies cats and kittens cared for by The Humane Society/SPCA of Nelson County. Located in Lovingston, Virginia, the non-profit was established in 1981 and today offers homeless company animals a new lease on life through its Almost Home Pet Adoption Center (a no-kill facility), a network of foster families, and its Kitty & Puppy Rescue/Transport Programs.

    I’d have fifty of this breed if I could. I had five – two of who were mixes. I lost my deaf girl to an autoimmune disorder last year in April – and exactly one year to the day later, lost my senior girl from old age. I’m already working on adopting another sweet Treeing Walker Coonhound girl from a shelter in Ohio (and will be making the 10+ hour round-trip to pick her up next weekend. When they list them as Foxhounds, they most likely are actually Walkers, which were originally bred from the English Foxhound. Treeing Walker Coonhounds were finally recognized by the AKC just a couple of years ago and have only been in the Westminster dog show for 2-3 years now. They are friendly, loving, playful dogs that typically get along with other dogs (although if they were used for hunting, you do need to watch them around cats and other small animals). They want to love – and be loved. They’re known as the “clowns” of the dog world, and rightfully so. Please consider adopting this precious girl. Too many of this breed are dying in shelters in the US – especially in the southern states. I wish they’d pass a law to keep them from being used for hunting – mine only hunt for a soft spot on the bed or a treat they’ve dropped.
