UPDATE: MIA HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!! YEAH!!!!
This is Mia. Short for"Mama Mia" She's a redbone coonhound with a heart of gold. She's friendly, playful and sooooo affectionate. She's up for adoption through Out of The Woods. I got to spend some time with Mia during a doggie lifestyle session so we could get some shots of her showing off her wonderful personality. Boy did she show off! She was so excited to show me everything she can do and all of her favorite toys that she wore herself out. By the end of our shoot she was putting her head in my lap looking for lovin! Dogs like Mia make it hard to walk away without having to explain to our two dogs that they have a new member of the family. I'm working with Out of the Woods each month photographing their pet of the month with hopes of helping these great fuzzy friends find some loving homes. It's going to be hard to not end up with 12 new friends of my own at the end of the year!
Here's some information from Mia's adoption page:
"Mia was found in the woods with 9 puppies that were only a day old Memorial Day weekend. She was covered in mange and was malnourished. She was very protective but eventually allowed her rescuers to take her and her pups. She was taken in and was a wonderful mother to her pups. Her puppies have all been adopted and now Mia deserves a new home to be loved and spoiled. Mia is not more than 1 ½ years old most likely since she has grown a bit since being rescued. She looks like a redbone hound with a beautiful shiny silky coat and weighs about 48 lbs. She gets along great with other dogs and loves to play with them. She is housetrained and is very calm and well mannered and learns quickly. She would make a great companion pet for anyone old or young."
