Rhett & Scarlett

We're still looking for a home for the lovely Rhett and Scarlett. They are brother and sister and are used to being together. They can be homed separately, but we do home some of our hounds in pairs so we know there is a home for them together out there somewhere.

 Could it be you?  

Rhett and Scarlett  are both friendly dogs who are being boarded together in kennels in Ireland. They are five years old and we would really like them to be settled together as they are brother and sister. If you would like to meet Rhett and Scarlett please let us know. We would really like to find a home for them together. more
