Isn’t she GORGEOUS? This is Gillie. She’s some sort of coonhound from Kentucky, and she is so sweet and gentle and those eyes? My heart swells. Her fur and ears are SO soft and shiny. Really you should just meet her to feel her ears. And then try to not bring her home. I dare you.
Gillie is 2.5 years old and is 35 lbs. She loves a good ear rub and a good walk (she does well on a leash), and man-oh-man would she love to catch a rabbit. I suspect she and Magda would be fast friends. Oh, but that reminds me, she shouldn’t go to a home with cats.
This girl has quite the sniffer and knows how to use it! She’s been taking tracking classes, and would love a family who could spend tons of time with her outside. Gillie does bark out of boredom, so she would just need stimulation (again, this is so similar to Magda! By the way, making her pose for photos counts as stimulation!). And when she’s not at work, she’s happy to sleep on the couch. As we all are, am I right?

About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
