Sassy is one classy gal! Somewhere between 11 and 12 years old, this senior Coonhound arrived at the Surry County Animal Control shelter on November 29th as an owner surrender. Her owner claimed that Sassy had been running around the neighborhood and barking, and he was afraid that the neighbors would be upset. However, folks at the shelter said Sassy was very quiet while she was there. Unfortunately for Sassy, it seemed as though her owner decided she was no longer valuable because she’d grown too old to hunt or breed. Sassy was dealing with skin problems, and it was clear that she had multiple litters in the past. To top it all off, she was heartworm positive.
