Precious's Story...
This pretty little sad face is Precious. Precious is a Hound/Whippet mix who is on the URGENT list at the shelter! She is approximately 1 ½ years old. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owner because she was anxious and barky. She is small, only about 25 pounds. She LOVES to play with other dogs and is just a happy go lucky girl!! When excited, she does bark….but this is how a dog communicates. Some dogs bark more than others. There are also training methods to stop excessive barking which Precious DOES NOT have. She is a great girl! She needs another chance!!! Please help her find it!!!!!

PLEASE call the shelter ASAP! 502-633-0009

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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