Adopt Sophie a Senior Harrier Hound Dog in Missouri

This pretty girl is Sophie.  She's an 8 year old senior tricolor Harrier dog.  Sophie walks very nicely on a leash.  She'd would love a family that took her for walks so she could sniff, explore and enjoy the outdoors.  Sophie is a friendly, gentle girl who just needs somebody to love.

According to the American Kennel Club, the Harrier is a scent hound developed in England to hunt hare in packs.  Though Harriers are a smaller version of the English Foxhound, they are still a sturdy, large-boned dog.  Harriers excel in tracking and agility.  Outgoing and friendly, Harriers are pack dogs.  They get along well with other animals and are very people oriented.  Very intelligent, Harriers can be easily trained.

Take a look at Sophie's adoption video and then give the Humane Society of Missouri at call at 636-530-0805.  Sophie is at their Chesterfield Valley animal shelter and her animal ID number is A471494.

Since 1870, the Humane Society of Missouri has been dedicated to second chances.  They provide a safe and caring haven to animals - large and small - that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.  Their mission is to end the cycle of abuse and overpopulation, assist in creating lasting relations hips between people and animals, offer world-class veterinary care, plus offer pet obedience and behavior programs.  HSMO operates three animal shelters in the St Louis, Missouri, area, plus Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, for abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, chickens and other farm animals.

We are participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz and Talking Dogs.  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!
