ADOPTED_Ticker is a 1-2 year old spayed Red Tick Hound. Ticker was picked up by animal control roaming the countryside, apparently lost from her hunting pack. She was malnourished and scared. Hunting dogs and hounds are pretty much the first to be euthanized at shelters down South. After a few days of optimistically jumping at the door of her cage at the shelter, she began to withdraw. She was very depressed and had a urinary tract infection. So, Ticker came back with us to under go her recovery. As it turned out, she was heartworm positive. She was treated and recovered successfully. She is on heartworm preventative, as is every other dog here, to stop any new worms from developing. She has a playful, upbeat personality. She has started basic obedience training and is housebroken. She gets along well with people and dogs. She has a very short coat that barely sheds.
