Marzipan's Story...
Well, howdy! How are you fine folks doin' today? Oh, so sorry darlings, let me introduce myself first. My name is Marzipan and I'm a 73lbs spayed Hound mix. Now, now…don't be impolite, I know what you are thinking. Yes, I'm a little thick through the middle, but us southern girls like southern cooking. When I combine good southern food with lounging like a Hound dog, it added a lil' more of me to be snuggled. I'm looking for a family. Have you seen one that would like to snuggle a sweet Hound? My other family had to move and could not take me along. It will be one fine day when I'm able to cozy on my bed or play with some young kiddos. Well, it would be lovely to meet ya' all. Come down to the shelter and see me now…ya' hear?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marzipan, a Murphysboro 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 Murphysboro, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Murphysboro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Murphysboro 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 Murphysboro 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 Murphysboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
