Pet Adoption Photography: Bocephus the Coonhound

Redbone Coonhound hunting dog, animal shelter pet adoption photo

“Bocephus” was a handsome hound dog picked up stray by a Walton County Animal Control officer on May 8, 2018. He had a hunter orange collar and dragging a 5 foot black leash, so he had to have belonged to somebody. Not sure if he was a lost hunting dog, or got away from somebody’s house.

As is my luck when I really like a dog, he tested heartworm positive. But thankfully Anne, Lane and Audrey had already posted pledges for his rescue before his hold even expired. And not long after posting his new photos, Katharine pledged $250!

I can’t emphasize how much those pledges help dogs like “Bocephus.” It is overwhelming at times the number of people pledge their hard-earned money to get these pups another life in a rescue. Not only do we get the occasional sponsor that posts from across the web, but there is a core group of donors that sponsor nearly every dog in our little shelter.

It goes without saying that we wouldn’t have near as much success re-homing so many dogs if it weren’t for these great, large-hearted people that give week after week to see our dogs saved. Thank you all!

​“Bocephus” was photographed on May 14, 2018 for the Walton County Animal Control shelter in Monroe, GA and put on the shelter’s adoption website,
