    I'm looking for a bluetick, walker, or redbone as a pet for my kids. We are hitting the local shelters Sat. to look, but if anyone has any leads on one please pass it along.
    Thanks, Calvin

    Take a look at Petfinder.com ; a few months back I found a hound rescue, can't remember the name now though.

    Saw several Black & Tans, Blueticks and think a Walker or two.

    Petfinder is where I started. I looked at a redbone this am in Lake Mary. Halifax shelter has hounds. We'll see them tomorrow. :)

    my last bluetick was ordered from Smokey River Kennels in OK, but those are bad a$$ hunting stock, which you don't need as pets that won't be hunted. But here's a couple of links to good hound sources, plenty of dogs in the classifieds.

    I found a catahoula for my 10yr old daughter on this site.

    Quick update. We adopted a dog from the Halifax animal shelter last Thursday. She's a Walker, about 2 years old. What a wonderful dog. It's been 7 years since we've had a dog, and the kids were thrilled to get her. I think I like her more than the kids do. :)

    I know times are tough now but if you can donate a bag of feed to a local shelter they would be grateful.
