Hunter's Story...
Hunter has been with us for a few weeks now, growing up in one of our foster homes. His foster mom says Hunter is such a sweetie. He is the largest, but the most docile of the bunch. He is playful and gentle and loves to cuddle. He loves to sleep and is the first one to tire out. He loves his kennel, and is always the first one to voluntarily walk in when he is done playing and ready for a nap. Often the other pups will play around him/on top of him while he happily stays asleep, but when he does wake up he has a healthy amount of energy and enjoys playing and wrestling with them. He's already learning about potty training and whines at the door when he needs to go out!

Our best guess is that Hunter is a hound mix, but at this young of an age breed is hard to be certain. He's the largest of his litter, currently weighing a whopping 9 pounds. Since we don't know what breed or size he will grow into, only those willing to take pot luck need apply! Because of his young age, he will need to go to a home with a stay-at-home person who will continue with his training and socialization and keep him well exercised. Lots of activity and puppy school is a must.

Now that Hunter is old enough, we've moved him to Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd. where you can meet him anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Hunter's date of birth is approximately 5/30/15 and his adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella vaccination, deworming, heartworm preventative, flea & tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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