Ruth and Viper are PennMaryDel Foxhounds and they're absolutely beautiful creatures. They came to PAWS just before the New Year with their companion, Valor, who has since been adopted.
Ruth is painfully shy, but is slowly coming out of her shell. Viper is also very shy, but is more outgoing than Ruth. He'll actually welcome you at the door to their room by jumping up and waiting for a pat on the head. Ruth will wait in the back ground, an if she recognizes you, she'll give a wag of the tail. If not, she'll shrink back and look away.
It's a shame we can't read their minds. To know their background would help us solve so many mysteries about these gentle giants. They need to be placed together, and in a home without another dog. They also need a quiet home with someone who will be very patient and loving, and can wait for them to blossom on their own terms. Believe me, it's worth the wait!
