Hilde is a 44 lb., lovely lemon & white Hound mix. She came to rescue as a stray, starving, with many loose teeth and severe dental disease, but her tail wagged despite apparent discomfort. Hilde has now had all of her teeth (and roots) pulled out by a Veterinary Dental Specialist, so the good news is that she'll never need an expensive dental cleaning. It's tough to determine an exact age because of the past dental issues, but her Veterinarians have determined she is around 9 years old. Since coming to her foster home, Hilde has adapted to living in a home and is a quick learner. She is somewhat hesitant about walking on bare floors, and is working on walking down the steps. Hilde is an accepting dog who looks to kind people to guide and encourage her to explore and adapt to a world that is new to her. She loves exploring and being introduced to new things. Hilde is eager to go for walks and as hounds do, her nose is on the ground as she walks comfortably on leash. Hilde gets along with other dogs and lives harmoniously with the resident dog in her foster home. She previously lived with a cat and seems to ignore them. Hilde is food oriented and loves soft treats. She likes soft toys and will pull them out of the toy basket and “chew” them on the sofa. Hilde not only gives a full body tail wag when she greets you, but her eyes sparkle brilliantly. They never show the darkness of her past, only the sparkle of happiness, anticipation, and kindness. Hilde has a beautiful prance when she is happy and excited. She is shy with new people, but when they show kindness to her, she is all tail wags and happy eyes.
Hilde is looking for someone who has kindness, patience, and a heart big enough to allow her to experience a lifetime full of love and happiness. In return Hilde will freely give endless tail wags, couch snuggles, and sparkling eyes, but beware if you sit on the sofa with Hilde, she will expect ear scratches and snuggles. Hilde is housetrained. She goes to the door and looks at us her Foster Parents when she needs to go out to potty. Hilde also rides well in a car. This girl is a dream dog. Apply for her today!

Adoption application, home visit and adoption fee required. If you would like to apply for adoption, please complete the online application at www.furryfriendsnetwork.com. Look under ADOPT tab. Contact generalinfo@furryfriendsnetwork.com for questions or if issues are encountered with the adoption application or general adoption process.

Foster Homes are desperately needed in order to help more animals like this one. Please consider opening your heart and home to a homeless animal. To find out more about becoming a Foster Parent, see our website at www.furryfriendsnetwork.com. Look under VOLUNTEER tab.

As part of our adoption agreement, we require that you and your adopted canine attend a minimum of one group basic obedience course within 4 months of adoption. If adopting a puppy under 4 months old, we also require a group puppy socialization course be started immediately upon adoption.

In addition, we require that puppies under 6 months of age will not be alone for more than 4 hours at a time in an 8 hour workday. We highly encourage working families to consider older puppies and adult dogs, but if your heart is set on a puppy, please consider doggie daycare.
