Adopt Wanda a Bloodhound Dog

Wanda is looking for a forever home...  is it with you?

Wanda (formerly known as Daisy Jolene) is a gorgeous purebred Bloodhound that was picked up as a stray in Montgomery County, VA and taken to the local shelter. 
How could you say no to those magnificent ears?
She was infested with fleas and a blood test revealed that she was anemic because of the infestation. After several baths and vet care, she is on the road to a speedy recovery.
A sweetheart named Wanda.
Wanda was pulled for rescue by Bandit's Place which is located in CT, but has foster homes in several states.
Wanda says:  Please help me find my perfect forever home!
Wanda had a temporary foster home in Elliston, VA so that transport could be coordinated to the rescue in CT.
Wanda just released from the animal shelter and on her way to her temporary foster home with a snazzy new collar and leash.
She is estimated to be around 2 years old, but is full of puppy love. She weighs a little over 70 lbs and is the biggest and happiest clown to have around the house. She is very food and treat motivated. She is also crate trained and house broken.
Wanda loves to play!
Wanda's dreaming of a forever home with lots of dog toys, good eats and love.
Wanda gets along very well with other dogs and is on the submissive side.
Wanda getting acquainted with some of her foster siblings.
She hasn't been tested with cats or kids, but she's so laid back that she would probably do well with children. Just be careful with the little kids because Wanda loves to play and might knock them over!

If you're interested in adopting Wanda, visit the rescue's website and fill out an online application.
Please share me so I can find my forever family!
Bandit's Place is a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless animals and placing them in loving, forever homes. It matters not where they've come from, but it matters greatly where they go. Needy animals are pulled from pounds across a wide area from Connecticut to the southern United States' over crowded high kill shelters and, when room provides itself, from individuals needing to surrender their pets.  Follow Bandit's Place on Facebook to see more of their adoptable pets and foster opportunities.

Note:  Special thanks to Kristi Austin for providing information and so many photos of the beautiful Wanda.  Kristi and her husband, Glenn, provided temporary foster care for this lovely girl.
On Tuesday we'll be participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz.  This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.  Find a pet at your local animal shelter or rescue and join us!  Please help spread the word about these beautiful animals via social media and let's find them forever homes!
