Meet Annie! She is a 4 year old American Fox Hound. Annie was found by a good samaritan curled up in the dog house with his own dog. He called to his dog to come out and, much to his surprise, out came Annie! Since he was unable to keep her for himself she was surrendered here in the hopes that she will find a home that is the perfect fit for her. Could that home be with you? Stop in and visit with her today!
