Louie's Story...
Louie Lewis is a 1-2 year old hound mix who is very sweet. He loves people and loves to say hi and wag his tail for everyone he meets. He is good with other dogs once he gets to know them (he is slightly wary when he meets a new dog). He absolutely loves to go for walks and play with his toys. As for cats, he is fine with them if they are fine with him. If they are scared and run from him, he'll give chase but if they are chill with him, he is chill with them. He is good in the house - steals a slipper now and then. Initially in his foster home, he did not understand house training but the other dogs in the house seem to have taught him that it's not OK to go in the house so he is doing good with house training with only a minor accident once in a while. He is well on the way to mastering house training. Louie is just a very sweet boy. In his foster home, he is getting along well with 2 other dogs and multiple cats. He would love to be with a family that will take him for walks and outings to the park. He is very sweet to children he meets at the park.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Louie, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a 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 Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
