BROOKSVILLE, Fla. - Are you looking to adopt a super gentle dog for your family? Annie may be the girl you are searching for.

She is a 2-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound. She has excellent house manners. Her foster family reports Annie loves people, other dogs, cats and children.

According to the American Kennel Club, Treeing Walker Coonhounds are smart and brave dogs that love to run.

Annie life prior to being rescued by the Animal Rescue Friends Network was not so good. ARF'n is hoping to make up for that by ensuring she will forever be loved and treated well. The organization is searching for a family that would treat her as the pampered girl she is accustomed to with her foster parents.

Annie is spayed and heartworm negative. If you are interested in adopting her, you can find additional information at or by e-mailing

ARF'n adoption fees for dogs start at $75. The adoption process can take up to two weeks.
You can visit Annie at the 2nd annual Hernando Oaks Four Person Golf Scramble in Brooksville on Sunday, November 19. She will be appearing at the golf course around noon.

The scramble is a fundraiser benefiting ARF’n. Tee time is at 8:30 a.m. The cost is $60 per player, $200 per foursome and includes green fees, cart and buffet-style lunch. There is a 50/50 Hole-in-One contest and 50-foot putting contest.

There is still room for any individuals or foursomes interesting in playing in the scramble. Send your name(s) to Dave Hitchcock by emailing no later than Saturday, November 18. You can pay for the event by donating on the ARF’n website.
