Murphy's Info...

Murphy's Story...
Murphy was seized along with 14 hounds and taken in by the Qunite Humane Society. We received a call asking for help. I went to the shelter and saw 14 hounds in deplorable health. He has been out to our vet, treated first for parasites, then once he gained a few lbs had shots updated and now recently neutered he's looking for a home and family of his own. He is coming along very well, OK on a lead and love attention.
He's a vocal boy and will require a fenced yard, although he'd not "stray" far from home, once he knows there food, love and warmth he's a lively boy and will need some basic training, we've worked hard with his medical and he's progressing well with new commands. He is HW neg thankfully and looking for love, companionship and a gentle family/person to trust. Once you have his trust you'll have a best friend who's loyal and lovely! He is microchipped as with all our dog to keep him SAFE .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Colborne 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 Colborne, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Colborne.

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