Linwood's Story...
AVAILABLE 08-02-14 An Animal Control Officer brought Linwood to the Shelter as a stray. Linwood seems to be mostly Hound, but might have a little Setter mixed in as he has thicker fur and his tail has some feathering. He's a handsome guy with a great personality. He walks pretty well on a leash and loves to have a good roll in the grass. Like most Hounds, Linwood is very tolerant which makes him a great kid dog. The tail pulling, ear tugging doesn't bother him. He even seems to be okay with cats. We took him in the cat room and he paid no attention to any of the cats; then we took a teenage kitten out and he still only sniffed, then the kitten laid his paw on Linwood's nose and he just sat there with no reaction, so we're thinking he might be okay with cats.
Linwood has also shared an outside play pen with another dog here at the Shelter, so might do okay with another canine resident. Of course, it's always a good idea to bring your dog to the Shelter for the two to meet. He tested negative for heart worms, his shots have been updated and his adoption fee includes neutering at our contracted clinic. So come to the Shelter and meet sweet Linwood - he might be the one.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elizabeth City 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 Elizabeth City 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)/Setter (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Setter (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elizabeth City paves the way for another one to be saved.
