Sonar and 19 of her close and far family members were rescued back in May from a hoarder who had around 60 dogs in her home and was about to be raided by police. With the help of our volunteers, we were able to get 20 dogs to safety, and we had thought the last of them was adopted when Zeus left a few weeks ago.
But late last week, we received an unexpected phone call from Sonar’s adopters saying it wasn’t working out. Their other dog, who was much larger, wanted no part of this rambunctious girl who kept jumping and chewing on him. Fearing someone would get hurt when he finally tired of her antics and retaliated, her adopters decided to return her to the shelter.
Now she’s waiting and hoping for another chance.
Sonar is an 11-month-old Black/Tan Coonhound. She is fully housebroken and knows her basic commands as well as how to “shake paw.”
She loved hanging out with the junior volunteers yesterday evening. Of course it didn’t hurt that they were pretty liberal with the treats, which everyone enjoyed.
You can meet Sonar at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm. She can be reserved now, and once the vet gets a chance to check her over in a couple days, she will be ready to go home.
