Meet the mischievous Miss Mabel. Mabel is all hound, all day long. This gorgeous girl came to us as a stray and was sadly found in very poor condition. She was essentially a bag of bones. Our Shelter Medicine Team ruled out any medical reason as to why she was so emaciated, and we suspect that Mabel did not have sufficient nutrients, resulting in severe weight loss.
It would be easy to imagine a narrative or speculate as to the why, but rather, we choose to focus our energy on the here and now. And right now, we need your help. Mabel needs your help.
Mabel is a Bluetick Coonhound who would make a wonderful companion for someone willing to work at Mabel’s pace as she transitions into home life or anyone with Coonhound experience. She is as sweet as pie, loves getting her ears rubbed, and is an excellent walking friend; however, she is very focused on food right now. She is slowly gaining weight, but it will take some time. Mabel likely has never lived in a home before, so patience and understanding will be essential in adopting this beautiful girl.
She is truly a lovely dog and will shower you with affection, but she will need time to adjust and learn how to live in a home.
