Precious (Spayed)'s Story...
"Precious" is an adorable senior female Hound/Shepherd mix who was surrendered to the HSOV on November 16, 2016 with "Jasmine" who is her best friend and former housemate. These girls had a very sad story and reason as to why they were brought to our shelter :( Their owner had passed away recently, and there were no other family members who could care for them :( :( Both of the girls are very sweet and have obviously been loved. "Precious" has a fawn-colored short smooth coat with white highlights on her chest/paws, a long tail, and a beautiful serene-looking face with a slender muzzle and short semi-erect ears. This darling girl certainly lives up to her name and is indeed precious. She is extremely friendly but obviously pretty scared at the moment (and who can blame her?) When we took "Precious" outdoors late in the afternoon, she was a little timid but made a noble effort to put on a 'happy face' but her heart just wasn't in it :( She decided to lie in the grass and look at the camera with her big brown hopeful eyes (which succeeded in melting a few hearts). "Precious" weighs 53 lbs. She loves baby-talk and and soft conversations. Our photographer sat in the kennel with "Precious" after her photo session and challenges anyone to spend just 10 minutes with this special girl and not fall in love with Precious. She has been spayed and has also been given rabies vaccine.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Precious (Spayed), a Marietta Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta 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 Marietta 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
