Speaking of coonhounds: Lovebug’s dilemma


Lovebug needs some love.

The 13-week old pup was struck by a car on a Missouri Interstate highway.

She suffered in the tall grass for a day, before working up the energy to lift her head. A firefighter and his wife,  passing by, saw her and  stopped, wrapping her in his firefighter’s jacket and taking her to a local veterinarian.

There she was found to have two fractured legs and a broken pelvis — injuries that will require the installation of pins and plates, and cost about $2,000.

“She has charmed everyone with her zest for life and determined attitude. We are a non-profit organization and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated,” writes Cheri Zaiger, of American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue. “I just know if other people could see her face and hear her story some donations would come in to help her out of this devastating situation,” Zaiger added. The website has a box that can be clicked on to make donations.

American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue helps all types of coonhounds – Black and Tans, Redbones, Blue Ticks, Red Ticks, Tennessee Tree Walkers. It rescues most of them from kill shelters, keeps them in foster care and seeks to find permanent homes for them.

I just thought you would like to know that Lovebug received the money she needed for her surgery! Actually, it took two surgeries to get her fully repaired. She has been adopted and is expected to live a normal life. This is all due to people like you that cared enough to get the word out on her plight. You are WONDERFUL! I greatly appreciate all you do. If, in all your travels, you get to NW Georgia you will have a place to “crash” at our place. It is just me and my husband and our 7 dogs. 4 are resident dogs and 3 are our coonhound fosters, but they are all very amiable and would welcome you and your dog at any time. Just drop me an e-mail….
