Adoption fee is cost of vet bill for surgery, vaccinations and chipping. Riley loves everyone. Adopter must have at least a five ft fence. Foxhounds are the most loving of dogs, but if they are not fenced, off they will go into the wild blue yonder to chase a fox or rabbit, etc. They otherwise are like having a tall basset... Couch potatoes. Riley was found tangled in a fence nearly breathless. If the guy that found her when he did she wouldnt be alive. Whoever gets her will be so happy. She has been so sweet, even with my two poun Chiweenie and my three pound Yorki. My Boston terrier loves her. Havent tried her with cats, dont want them to scratch her. Please consider her for you family.
