OUR RESCUES COST US MUCH MORE TO VET AND RETURN TO HEALTH THAN WE RECOVER IN ADOPTION FEES. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DONATE ON TOP OF THE REQUESTED FEE OR DONATE EVEN IF YOU AREN'T ADOPTING PLEASE CONSIDER DOING SO. ANY AMOUNT HELPS. DONATIONS CAN BE MADE BY PAYPAL OR BY MAILING TO THE DIRECTOR'S ADDRESS BELOW.
All SCBC available hounds are spayed/neutered, current on their shots and heartworm prevention, and are micro chipped. We register the chips with a AKC CAR which has a life-time registry with no fees.
Bloodhounds in our program are home fostered which allows us to get good assessments on their temperament, personalities, etc. Please talk with your adoption coordinator to determine what dogs are available and which one might be the right fit for your family.
Adoption applications usually take just a couple of days to process. If you like a dog that is not in your state help with transportation arrangements can be made for an adoption.
We also do foster-to-adopt. For information on our foster program please click on Foster A Bloodhound

TX DAISEY NEEDS A FAMILY OF HER OWN!
Daisy is super friendly with dogs and cats but still a little fearful around new people. Daisy is now around 8-9 years old. Daisey really wants to be loved on but is unsure of her place and needs a family who can reassure her she is welcome in the home. After her owner died she was tied out and left before being turned over to the shelter and traumatized is really the only way to describe how she acted. She will need careful introduction to the male members of the family but is now asking for the husband in the foster home to love on her. She gains confidence from other dogs. A fenced yard is required. Daisy is considered special needs and her fee is negotiable.
Red is around 15 months (est DOB 2/1/13). He is a super sweet, energetic boy but he does need an experienced bloodhound owner who is self-assured but not rough. He loves to play and though he will try to be the big dog he also backs down when it doesn't work. He is ready to be someone's special boy. Adoption fee $250, above ground fenced yard required. Bloodhound experience preferred.
ABIGAIL TRAILING PROSPECT ADOPTION PENDING
Abigail came to us painfully thin. She has almost boundless energy and would make a great trailing prospect. She has a wonderful temperament and gets along with the cat and other dogs. She has successfully undergone heartworm treatment and is now waiting for that active and loving home she so deserves. Abby has also become a talker and according to her foster she has quite the mouth on her! Her adoption fee is $250 and she requires an above ground fence.
Willie is going to need a family who can work with him on his fear of men in hats and boots. He is very sweet and loving but may never totally get over his initial fear of certain men. Once he gets to know them he is fine. He is very loving and adores children. He grew up with dachshunds and is particularly fond of them but is also good with other small dogs. He loves to play and gets along well with all the dogs he has met and lives with. Willie will climb a 4-5 foot wire fence and so a privacy fence or a fence with an external electric wire is required. Absolutely no underground fencing, especially for this boy. Willie is 2 years old and his adoption fee is $250.
Lilly is a darling liver and tan girl who is loved by everyone who meets her. She has never met a stranger and is the best play buddy ever. She is around 2 and thus has tons of energy and loves to spend it wrestling with her friends. She has used the dog door consistently in her foster home and knows how to sit and shake. Cats do not bother her. She really likes her food so she should be fed seperately from other dogs
Through no fault of her own, Miss Rita has returned to our program. Rita can be summed up in one word: sweet, sweet, sweet! She gets along with everyone and just wants to be loved. She is housebroken and crate triained. Rita will play with other dogs and loves to sleep on the couch or bed with you. She is fine with kitties inside but will bark at them if outside of the fence. She has had a rough go in life and deserves to have a forever retirement home of her own. You can't go wrong with Rita, she is as steady as they come
Blaze DOB 1/1/11
Blaze was an owner surrender. "I don't want her anymore and first person to show up to take her can have her." And yet she is such a good dog. She gets along with the other dogs, cat, and children. Her adoption fee is $250 and an above ground fence is required.
FOREST DOB 10/1/13
Forest is sweet but will need an experienced bloodhound person. He is worried when people come to the house though he is perfectly fine when in public, his foster is working on this. He has some food aggression but we believe with an experienced owner he will be fine. we are looking at having someone come to work with him on this issue. Forest is being scheduled for surgery for entropian, once he has it there should be no issues. Forest's adoption fee is $250 and an above ground fence is required.
Mickie came in as a stray with Huck. She has obviously been used for breeding. We believe she is around 2-3 yers old. She is very sweet but also sure that the others should bow down and obey. She causes no problems for the fosters other than being bossy. She does love to snuggle and would probably be happiest in a home with a few dogs though she does fine with the numerous dogs she is with now. She has just completed her heartworm treatment and is ready to find that wonderful home she deserves. Her adoption fee is $250 and we require an above ground fence.
Huck came in to shelter with Mickie. He appears to be bout a year and a half old. Huck is missing part of his tail. Huck is a guy who likes to observe before he decides what he wants to do. He is sweet but does appear to have been hit and/or kicked given his reactions to certain movement. He likes to play with the other dogs but is okay without them and mostly loves to snuggle with his person. His adoption fee is $250 and we require an above ground fence.
DOLLY EST DOB 6/1/13
Dolly is a stray who turned up around the same time in the same geographical area as two other full coat blacks. Dolly has a sweet gentle nature but is full of herself. Her foster believes she would make a good trailing dog. An above ground fence is required and her adoption fee is $250.00
MAYBELLINE EST DOB 6/1/13
Maybelline is one of the three full coat blacks that came into our rescue around the same time as Dolly and Mickie. She is quite shy and needs time to warm up. But she is playful and fun once she has a chance. She appears to be a year old or just under. Maybelline knows her way around the house but is afraid of certain types of movement and implements. An above ground fence is required and her adoption fee is $250.00.
WINNIE EST DOB 1/1/10
Winnie was a breeder in CO. She kept escaping so the owner said since she had weaned her latest litter they could keep her. She is a pocket bloodhound at around 70 pounds. She had no knowledge of the house or love but is learning really fast and loving it. She is still a little timid but coming out of her shell nicely. She is very sweet and will make a loving companion. We require a above ground fenced yard and her adoption fee is $250.00.
ELVIS IN NM
In his foster's words. "We named him Elvis because he scrunches up his nose when he see's you and his lip raises so he looks like Elvis, it's hilarious. Elvis weighs 102 lbs and is probably the sweetest bloodhound I have ever been around. He is potty trained & create trained. He is not food aggressive and gets along great with my dogs and my cat. Elvis is the only bloodhound I've ever walked on leash that doesn't pull like a mack truck, he walks beside you. Elvis like most hounds wants to be with you touching you if he can, he loves his ears rubbed and gives great kisses. Elvis is not as juicy as other bloodhounds I have had. He really doesn't slobber much." This sweetheart is around 6 years old. He is currently being treated for a tick-borne disease but is available now to the lucky family who adopts him. We do require an above-ground fenced yard and his adoption fee is $100.
June is 8 months old and a live-wire sweetheart. She was kept in a small enclosure most of her life, outside all the time. She has learned very quickly the joys of counter-surfing, sitting if a treat is involved and lap diving. She loves the other dogs and activity. Her foster says she is very bright which means, with her high activity level, she is a handful. But she is delightful and will make the right family a wonderful pet. Though we haven't tested her she has the attributes of most good working dogs. Her adoption fee is $250 and an above-ground fenceded yard is required.
