Meet Sylvia

Sylvia is a beautiful 5 1/2 year old coonhound who is looking for a fresh start in life with a family that will give her all of the love and care that she deserves. Sylvia did not get very good care in her former home, and was one of many dogs that we took in from a hoarding situation where the dogs were living in awful and filthy conditions. Sylvia and friends were quite traumatized by their former life but after receiving lots of love and patience from our staff for several weeks, Syvia decided to put her past behind her. Sylvia absolutely loves people and is a big leaner, and once she knows you, she just wants to lean on you for some attention. Sylvia walks very well on a leash and is well behaved, gentle and polite. She is very mild-mannered, quiet and easy going, but new things and loud noises tend to startle her, so she will need a home with well behaved dogs and kids. She does get along fine with both dogs and kids alike, as long as they are respectful to her. Sylvia will need a more experienced family that will give her plenty of time and patience to settle in to her new home. Sylvia is an absolute love and deserves the best home ever. File#26354 6/15/16
