Cabela's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Cabela's Story...
Cabela here, I’m a purdy 2 year old tri colored spayed female, hound mix. I was brought to the shelter when after I wondered up to a nice families’ home. I’m not entirely sure how I ended up so far away from home, you see when you’re a hound dog like me you tend to just follow your nose. It’s easy to lose track of time and where you are. You would think I could track my way home but I’d circled and twirled so many times I almost tied my tail in a knot! So I was really lucky these nice people helped me find my way here to the shelter where I was safe. I waited for my people to come but they never did sadly so I made a deal with the nice people here that they would help me find a new family and during the time it took them to find me a family I would be their dog treat quality control checker. They giggled at me a little but in the end they agreed! So it’s a great arrangement, I check all the dog treats that come in to be sure that they aren’t expired or disgusting and they are helping me find a loving family who is looking to add a purdy gurl like me to their home. So if you think you might need a dog treat checker in your home or even a human food checker (Except the bad foods like that chocolate stuff I can’t check it for ya) then I’m on the lookout for a home and I’d be happy to fill the position! Come on down and see me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cabela, a Murphysboro Coonhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Coonhound for sale in Murphysboro, or seeking a Coonhound dog from a breeder in Murphysboro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Murphysboro 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 Murphysboro 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 Coonhound breeders who help with Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Murphysboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
