In shelters we know that the last to be adopted or saved are the black dogs, senior dogs and hounds. This page focuses on Hound Dogs.
It is a mystery why hounds are so forgotten. If you really want a great family dog that is good with kids, get a hound!! They do need a fenced yard, but most dogs need a fenced yard as well. Most hounds are extremely good with other dogs and excellent with children. Beagles to Bloodhounds, they are truly gentle and loving, and come in all sizes for every home.
