Wyatt's Story...
Hi, I'm Wyatt, and I'm a 7-year old hound mix. I'm told every hound has a story, so here's mine ... 6 years ago I was adopted through the Pen Pals program. I was so happy and thankful to have a family to call my own. I had a great life, going on hikes with my dad and long walks with my mom. My family loved me very much and was extremely sad when circumstances changed and they had to give me up. So now I'm back in the Pen Pals program with two nice handlers who adore me. They're great, but I sure do miss the family life. If you're looking for me, I'm ready to come home with you.

To be honest, I'm pretty much perfect. Well, perfect except for being a little rough with my plush toys (please don't judge me; I am a dog, after all!). I do well with polite smaller dogs after I have a chance to get to know them. I mostly prefer to be with my people.

*****
After being adopted in 2011, Wyatt has returned to the Pen Pals program due to his owner no longer being able to physically care for him. Wyatt is a great dog who loves to go on long walks and hike. He's good with polite/calm dogs and good with older kids or kids who are polite with dogs.

Wyatt is a smart boy who has done a fabulous job learning his obedience and socialization skills. He recently passed both his Canine Good Citizen and his Community Canine (CGC Advanced) mock tests! Wyatt is really great in the home--he greets you, but doesn't jump up on you and isn't destructive (except for his own toys). He has a playful personality and his handlers absolutely adore him.

Wyatt is 7 years old and about 65lbs, up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped, neutered, and crate and house trained. Wyatt also walks extremely well on leash!

Wyatt is receiving obedience training at a Virginia correctional center. To learn more about the Pen Pals program, please visit our website at www.fetchacure.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wyatt, a Richmond Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Coonhound/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 Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Coonhound/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
