Snoopy's Story...
** Snoopy has completed his training with the Ladies at Fluvanna. His adoption fee is now $175 so that he can be on his way to his Forever Home! He's ready everyone, and currently in a foster home in Richmond! Please come by and meet him! **

Snoopy is a happy boy with simple needs -- a person to love and play with, a comfy bed, and a second chance at a home to call his own. Super-friendly, very quick to learn, and playful -- loves everyone he meets, and we think he'd enjoy kids, too! He befriended over a dozen dogs while in the program, and would live happily with another friendly dog with nice social skills.

While at the prison, he regularly visited the mental health ward at the prison, relishing every moment of attention from one and all.

Snoopy is 5-6 years old, though he acts younger. He's about 58 lbs. He's been with us since 8/29/13!!

Snoopy has learned sit, down, stay, come, touch, leave it, and is great about crating. His loose-leash walking is usually very good. He is also building quite a trick repertoire, including paw, pout, step right up, figure-8 weaving between legs, and say your prayers! Also plays a bit of fetch. He accepts bathing well, allows nail clipping without fuss, is good in the car, and behaves well at vet visits.

On 1/2/14, Snoopy happened to run into 2 small girls in the vet's office lobby and his whole body wagged with glee. We rarely know the history of our dogs prior to them joining the program, but it sure looks like Snoopy enjoyed kids in his former life.

When briefly adopted, he was way to intensely interested in a resident cat, so it's best he be in a cat-free home.

Snoopy is receiving obedience training at a Virginia correctional center.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Snoopy, a Richmond Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Richmond breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
