Sage's Story...
This sweet face is Sage, the 1-2 year old hound mix momma who was found in the woods with her little pups. She had used a fallen tree with a hollow in it to shelter those pups and thank goodness we were able to get her in our care. It did take several weeks to catch her - but success! So as you can tell, Sage has been through a lot and each day just keeps getting better for her. Sage is in a foster home with other dogs and boy does she love their company. She is the best fit for a home with another dog as she is bashful and needs that confidence of another dog around to help her along in the household. Housebroken already! She is just that smart. She will even let you know when she is ready to go outside by going to the door as her queue (well your queue to let her out that is). She is not being crated at the foster home and does just fine without one. Her favorite thing in life is being around other dogs and she does enjoy the outdoor time in a secure fenced yard (wooden fence is best). She really would benefit from a home where she received a lot of one on one attention to show her what love is (and of course, with another dog in it - bonus!!) Her foster home has many dogs and it is challenging to provide that one on one attention she would benefit greatly in.

We recommend and encourage you to complete an application at http://henricohumane.org/adopt/application-for-dogs/ before coming to our next adoption event. To find out if I will be attending our next adoption event, please email dogs@henricohumane.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sage, a Richmond Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (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)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type)/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
