Troy, a German Shepherd / Bloodhound mix spent the first year of his life chained to a tree until he was abandoned by his owner. He was rescued by Tier Haven Rescue in Louisville, Kentucky.  Troy is now two years old and enjoys exploring new places, hiking, and getting spoiled by his forever family!  He also recently welcomed a new rescue brother, Bones!img_20160403_102338

For those asking, this picture shows where we got the name “Bones” ???? Bones is extremely underweight. We don’t know much about his background but we adopted him thru our local humane society, where they named him “Connecticut” ???? The only information we were given was that he was an owner give up, then he was adopted in February and given up again in August (due to his escape antics). From what we can see so far he LOVES Troy boy ❤ he loves to wrestle and play with toys, will eat anything, and is a sweet cuddle bug ???? we are so excited to introduce him to hiking, camping and much more! #doubletrouble #dogsofinstagram #dogsofig #germanshepherd #germanshepherdmix #germanshepherdsofinstagram #belgianmalinois #belgianmalinoisofinstagram #maligator #gsd #gsdmix #whitegsd #adoptdontshop #adoptadventurerepeat #lexingtonhumanesociety #humanesociety #sharethelex #lhs #lovehappens #adventuredognation #adventuremutts #sofurtastic #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #ruffwear #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog

This is my fourth and final picture of my favorite hike for #dogsthathike10k hosted by @dogsthathike @alcottgear and @orijenpetfood this picture was taken within the first five miles of our AT trip. It was raining on and off and we were starting to ask ourselves “can we actually do this?” Despite our fears we kept going one step, one water break, one campsite and one mountain at a time. Hiking requires strength, endurance and smart pacing, but the rewards are priceless. Hope you enjoyed my reminiscing and happy trails ???? pawtners tagged This is also my entry for #ourgreatestadventure2k16 hosted by @elvis_gsdexplorer @graywoof @oli_the_aussie_ #tbt #dogsthathike #dogsofinstagram #dogsonadventures #adventuremutts #pawsomemutts #ruffwear #mydogismy strength #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs #outdoorswithdogs #germanshepherd #germanshepherdmix #germanshepherdsofinstagram #appalachiantrail #backpacking #belgianmalinois #belgianmalinoisofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #adoptdontshop #bloodhoundsofinstagram #bloodhound #adventurewithdogs #backcountrypaws #backcountryk9 #alcottgear #orijenpetfood

Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who takes me on long walks, teaches me how to act in public, makes me a Kong every night so I have a crate time snack, feeds me, picks up my poop and drives me to the dog park so I can hang with my friends. Thank you for letting me be your shadow and for letting me snuggle in bed with you in the morning. I love you, and happy mother’s day to all the other fur-moms out there ❤???? pawtners tagged #happymothersday #mothersday #dogsofig #dogsofinstagram #germanshepherd #germanshepherdmix #germanshepherdsofinstagram #belgianmalinois #belgianmalinoisofinstagram #maligator #mixedbreed #mixbreed #adventurewithdogs #adventuremutts #dogsonadventures #hikingwithdogs #campingwithdogs #backcountryk9 #backcountrypaws #explorekentucky #cumberlandfalls
