Alexis (which we usually call Alex), is a beautiful Redbone Coonhound that was abandoned by a callous hunter because she is terrified of loud noises. Thin and frightened, we took her to the nearest vet hospital to be checked out. When I asked what type of dog she was, the unfortunate answer was "she's just a hound!"..Horrified at this prejudiced response, when they asked what name to put on her chart, I decided quickly, "Alexis von Houndenberg, III." Alex is so much more than "just a hound"--she has so much personality and is the light of our lives!
