Mika's Story...
My name is Mika (that’s Mee-kah) and I’m an 8 month old beautiful brindle girl weighing in at 40 pounds right now. When I tell you brindle – I mean from nose to toes brindle. They say I’m a Hound Mix, which I think is just a mix of a little of everything. I have a fairly slender build which you can see in my face – a few people say I look a little like a greyhound but my foster mom isn’t too sure about that – she just says I’m cute as can be. I love to play and have lots of energy and want to see and be part of what everyone is doing but if you give me a chance to get all the initial excitement of “newness” out I do calm down and focus on what’s happening around me. I like to spend some time in my crate just observing but don’t want to miss a thing either. I have spent the last two months at the shelter where I was brought in as a stray but I already know how to sit and I’m super eager to learn more. I really love people of all sizes and I have lots of respect for my elder dogs in my foster home – the cats are alright too (except the orange one who scares me). I don’t jump at the door to go for a walk, but once I get out there I think I do pretty well. My foster mom crated me the first couple nights and days and I did great so now she’s starting to let me have a “little” more freedom so I can play with my furry foster friends during the day. She left me out for a few hours to see if I was trustworthy and I did well – except for the cardboard box I had fun with...oh and the stuffed animals? Nope I didn't tear them up (just drenched them it good ole fashioned dog chewiness). On a more serious note. I'm a healthy little girl. I'm already spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, and current on all preventatives. I'm a great little gal and I just know we would love each other forever (I'll even leave the cardboard boxes alone). I keep hearing about this happily ever after thing and it sounds wonderful!! I want to be someone's little princess and have that too! I'm ready if you are!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mika, a Ocean Springs 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 Ocean Springs, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Ocean Springs.

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