Magic's Story...
Do you believe in magic? Because I'M MAGIC! And with a wave of my wand, I know you’ll fall in love with me. Foster-mom says I have a “lovely, calm temperament & personality, really expressive eyes, and a deep soul she can get lost in!” I don’t know what that means, I just know I am able to cast a spell on people who meet me! I’m 5 to 7 years old and a really nice size at 30 pounds, not too big and not too small. I'm a mixed breed, probably part hound, and I’m ready to work my magic and join your family!

I get along really well with my doggy foster-brothers. We go for long walks, play with toys, and then spend afternoons in the sun together on the windowsill. There aren’t any kids here, but foster-mom thinks I’d do really well with them because I’m very gentle & patient. I don't bark, and I share all my toys and food. I don’t chew on the furniture & cushions - just toys. OK, sometimes I chase the cat to see if I can get her to disappear, but I’m learning to not do that trick anymore.

Foster-mom has taught me some new magic words, like EASY (on leash), WAIT/STAY (at doors/crosswalks), SIT/WAIT (to get my leash on): it’s hard work, but I am learning! I also learned to go potty outside, not inside. Who said you can't teach an old dog new MAGIC tricks?!

I am happy in my kennel-- I have my toys & blankets to make it all comfy. Before I go to sleep I like to listen to opera & jazz. The music helps me feel safe & calm. I snuggle in my kennel when Mom’s at class, but when she comes home – wheeee! – it’s time to go out for a walk, which I LOVE to do. Walks are my most favorite thing (other than meal time) & I’m always ready to go! But I like to walk slowly, and smell things, and meet other dogs. After a walk it's time for a snuggle on the couch.

I really like people, and I just love to get smoochies & give smoochies. I’m all ready to meet my new family & start working my MAGIC in your life!

My adoption fee is $170 and includes my vet exam, heart worm treatment and follow up test, DHAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, de-worming, flea and tick prevention, heartworm preventative, dental, and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Magic, a Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog 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.
