Comet's Story...
Comet - male - baby (5-6 months of age) - 15 pounds as of December 6 - Hound (mix?) - tricolor with speckling

If there is such a thing as a “pocket hound” then Comet fits the bill. While he may be a mutt, he is definitely the spitting image of a treeing Walker coonhound - but in miniature.

Leggy, lithe, and incredibly sweet, Comet follows his nose and lifts his head to catch scents. He streams about his foster home’s fenced yard with his brother, Prancer, showcasing a movement style, pliancy, and deftness that are fluid and beautiful.

Comet is extremely affectionate and tactile; he loves being petted and admired, and he loves to snuggle and reach up his little head to give kisses. He plays tug with his brother on his rope toy with happy ferocity, although more often the two puppies each take an end of the rope and race around the yard in tandem, resembling a team of little deer as they leap and run.

Comet came to us through Berkeley County Animal Control, to whom he was surrendered due to lack of resources in his former home. While we know only that he and his brother were tied out prior to being surrendered, we also recognize that despite benign neglect they must have been abundantly loved. Comet is a happy, innocent pup who expects good. He greets other dogs and people with joy and openness.

Comet has not yet mastered any cues, but he has mastered understanding the routines of his foster home; he is house trained and non-destructive in the house, and happy to dart into his crate for a special treat.

We do not know how much larger Comet will grow, but we expect that he will maintain his delicate, deer-like structure.

Because of his trusting and adventurous nature, and the fact that Comet is still at the beginning of learning leash walking and voice training, we are requiring a securely fenced yard for him. We are also recommending that he go to a home without very young children (under 8 years of age).

Hedgesville Hounds requires puppy adopters to agree to engage in positive training opportunities for adopted puppies, and can provide recommendations for positive training resources that are not costly for adopters.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Comet, a Rockville Hound (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Rockville, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Rockville.

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