Kelly's Info...

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

Kelly's Story...
Kelly is about 6-7 months old. She has a beautiful smooth coat that makes her look like a tiger - it's called brindle - and is typical of the plott hound breed. Kelly is being fostered in a family with four young children and another dog and doing great. She loves her walks in the woods, tagging along in the car doing errands, and just hanging out at home. She is learning her manners and knows a few commands already. Kelly sleeps in a crate at night and is quickly getting the hang of housetraining. She has no accidents if she's brought out every couple of hours.
Hounds are known for being great family dogs. They're loyal and loving, energetic and playful outside, but couch potatoes indoors and will be happy to hang out with a chew bone and watch the Red Sox and Patriot games on a Sunday afternoon. Hounds are easy to keep clean. They enjoy long walks in the woods and because they love to follow their nose, should be kept on-leash. A big fenced yard with a kiddie pool and some fetch toys would make Kelly happy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kelly, a Haverhill Plott Hound/Labrador Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Plott Hound/Labrador Retriever for sale in Haverhill, or seeking a Plott Hound/Labrador Retriever puppy from a breeder in Haverhill.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Haverhill 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 Haverhill 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 Plott Hound/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Plott Hound/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Haverhill paves the way for another one to be saved.
