The really good thing about taking Salsa, is that she was one of the very few without a current application and that I was familiar with her, having spent some time with her earlier in the week. She is listed as a Redbone Coonhound blend and to tell you the truth, other than her need to smell absolutely everything in the building-twice, she could have been a Man in the Moon blend, for all I know about hounds.
I took to Google to see just what this Redbone Coonhound is and found dogs that look strikingly similar to Salsa, though we got scads of guesses that she was a Viszla mix as well, and having a friend who was interested in Viszlas made me more aware of that breed. I admit to having "seen" Viszla in her myself.
Now that I've Googled both, I have to hand it to my friend, Amy, who upon seeing Salsa's picture, asked, "Some kind of Hound or Viszla?"
I don't really have a point, other than I don't know my hounds and Salsa is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA. She is sweet, takes a while to warm up to some people, has an amazing sniffer, knows sit, takes treats like a butterfly,and loves to give face kisses. She seems way more independant than my needy Mama's boys and was very well mannered.
If you know anyone looking for a loving and independant red-head, send them to the ACSPCA to meet Salsa.
