Bluetick Coonhound - Adult - Female
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shots

Bessie is a doll. Sweet, friendly, easy to walk on leash. Stop by to meet this beauty! She’s easy-going, extremely sweet, gentle to walk…an all-around great gal! Sometimes hounds are unfortunately perceived as hunting dogs with their noses to the ground. Bessie is meant to be a family dog. She won’t disappoint if given the chance to welcome her into your home. Bessie has no restrictions, except we can’t say for sure how she’d do with cats since our shelter is dog-intake only. She’s spayed and up-to-date on everything. Inquire about making this gal part of your family. She’s a gentle soul waiting for her forever home.

For adoption inquiries, please contact Kelly, our Adoption Coordinator, at or inquire directly via Petfinder. We are a volunteer-based humane society; please be patient with our response time to your inquiries. We are not able to assess dogs with cats since we are a small, rural shelter set up for dog intake only. We may be able to provide an opinion on how a dog may get along with cats, but behavior in your home is unknown until they would be properly introduced under supervision. For inquiries regarding a dog’s behavior with small children, the majority of our shelter dogs are unclaimed strays & we have limited or no history. We always recommend a meet and greet with our dogs available for adoption.

Taylor County is rescue friendly! If you are a rescue, please contact our Rescue Coordinator, Diana, at
