DOYLINE, La.- The gaunt bloodhound wandered Shreveport's streets. He had no collar or microchip when he came to a shelter. Euthanasia was a possibility.

But Hogan, about 2 years old, and Millie, a pup also placed by the South Central Bloodhound Club, may become stars. Trainer Sue Chipperson of Studio Animal Services in Castaic, Calif., says they'll be trained to replace Dixie, who has performed in police shows and commercials but is now semi-retired.

Chipperson says Millie arrived five or six weeks ago. Hogan arrived Thursday.

Club director Karen Gillespie of Doyline says she checked the company's reputation, veterinarians and references - just as she would anyone who wanted to adopt a bloodhound.
