On July 28th 2012 we adopted Ladybird aka: Commander Adele (a bluetick coonhound). When we first brought her home, we thought, "What in the world were with thinking?" However with a lot of patience and work, she has turned into a good old hound dog who we love very much. I do believe we have made great progress; she is a very happy and busy girl. She keeps everything out of our yard (birds, bunnies, cats, mice and any other animals). She gets along well with her sister as we did not think this would ever happen.
She has however managed to escape our yard on several occasions even though we have underground fencing, training collars, name tags, and microchips, but with the help of our newly purchased pet tracking (GPS) system we have managed to locate her. It's been a long year, but we are very happy with her! Thank you to Petfinder.com and Rockingham County Shelter for helping us find and adopt our loving and sweet Ladybird.
