We think all of our dogs are wonderful!  Please try not to "fall in love" with a particular dog's picture on our web site. We try very hard to match the RIGHT dog to the RIGHT home. Please trust our judgment in placing a hound with your family!

OUR DOGS WILL BE STAYING IN FOSTER HOMES UNTIL ADOPTED.  ANYONE INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT US AT gpa@gpalex.org or 859-266-5912.

She does fine with other dogs, but is confident enough that she could be an only dog in the home. Becky loves kids, long walks, and car rides.
