Sprout's Story...
Meet Sprout, one of 8 Forest pups! A rescue person in rural Georgia found 8 six-week old puppies left alone in the woods. After getting their shots and check-ups, they were brought to Chicago on an 18 hour transport relay set up just for them. Thanks to the care they received during the past few weeks, they are very friendly, well socialized, and love human attention. They have typical puppy energy, but as soon as you pick them up they melt in your lap.

Sprout is estimated to be about 5 months old, and currently weighs 16 pounds. She is one of the shyest of the litter, but her foster home reports that she loves meeting new people as long as they move slowly into the introduction. Once she knows you, however, you are her best friend. Sprout has quickly become a neighborhood favorite - people stop by just to cuddle "that cute puppy". Sprout is very easy to train, and is eager to please. She sleeps quietly through the night in her crate, and is house trained as long as she is kept on a schedule. She is friendly with other dogs and has learned to ignore cats.

Sprout is probably part hound like her siblings, but we are stumped as to the rest of her parentage: we can't even begin to guess where she got those beautiful blue eyes, that black face, and those short, stocky legs. She is truly a Heinz 57 Variety breed!

Sprout will need a family where someone is home part or all of the day to keep her on a regular schedule for potty-training, and to keep her socialized. Puppy obedience school is also required.

Her adoption fee of $350 includes: vet exam, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sprout, 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.
