Ace Pet Pick with Woodford Humane Society
5 years old 60 lbs Coonhound Mix
Sweet Sally is any hound-lover’s dream! This beautiful, long-legged, long-eared coonhound mix loves kids and is as gentle as can be with every person she meets. She’s easy on a leash and seems to be most content whenever she’s getting some human affection. Sally gets along well with some dogs, but seems to have a distinct preference for her own people: hounds! If you’ve got a lonely hound at home, or just a family in need of a family dog, Sally’s your girl. Come meet her at our Adoption Center or call 859.873.5491 to find out more!
