Ray's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Ray's Story...
Sweet, affectionate hound mix puppy, 9-weeks old, from a litter of 10. The mom was a black/white colored, medium size hound/pointer mix about 50 lbs. We are assuming the puppies will stay in the medium size range 35-50 lbs full grown. As far as breed mix we can only suggest what they are through visible means but only a DNA kit can give accurate info.

The puppies enjoy playing with the other dogs in the household and each other. Although they have not been introduced to cats, they should be fine with kittens/cats given proper introductions. Puppies are great with kids, but be sure to always provide adult supervision. Puppies have a high energy level, but still crash after short play times for a nice long nap. We always recommend a fenced in yard, so they can get plenty of free run exercise. It is strongly recommended that the puppy start obedience classes right away, they are not too young! Teach them right from the start and you won’t be trying to correct adult behavioral issues. The ideal home for any new puppy is as an integral part of the home, with a family that provides plenty of exercise/play, attention, training and socialization.

You can also check out more photos of the puppies on our Facebook page, Louisa Humane Society!

Adopting a puppy is a MAJOR responsibility! Puppies can fit into many different types of homes, but anyone who adopts a puppy should have plenty of PATIENCE (they make a lot of mistakes; along the way and need your patience as they are learning what is right!), DETERMINATION (it's about as much work as raising a baby...just doesn't take QUITE as long...and you don't have to worry about college! But...you don't send babies back if they make mistakes!!) and LEADERSHIP (you don't usually get a good DOG if you don't lead your puppy in the right direction!). Puppies have an ABUNDANCE of energy - you will need to have a plan on how to put that energy to good use EVERY single day!!

Each puppy’s adoption fee is $300. Puppies are only partially vetted at this young age; all will be spayed/neutered and micro-chipped. However, it is mandatory that puppies are due for rabies (at 4 months) and receive a third distemper (2-3 weeks after the last one).

If you are interested in meeting the puppy please fill out an adoption application at www.louisahumanesociety.com, click on the “PAW” for Adoption Application. Once submitted, the vet reference you provided will be contacted (if no vet, please provide 3 personal references, may be family and friends as long as they have a dog that you interact with), and a volunteer will schedule a phone interview with you. Once approved, you will be contacted by the foster parent to discuss the puppies and arrange the logistics for a visit. Our rescue group does not have a brick and mortar facility, all our animals are home fostered in our volunteer’s houses. You will be visiting a private residence. The application does not oblige you to adopt, nor does the visitation; the application just gives us more info to help ensure a good match.

Our policy is that we always take our animals back should it prove to be a less than perfect match, or if you are unable or unwilling to care for the animal any longer. We just don't want the animal to go back into the system.

Thank you for considering an unwanted and abandoned dog, and being part of the rescue efforts.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ray, a Louisa 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 Louisa, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Louisa.

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