Jake's Story...
Time to tell you about Jake! He’s our wonderful, loving Plott Hound!
One day, right in front of our driveway, a man in a small pickup, drove
up and literally put Jake out on the pavement! He drove off, leaving Jake
to wonder what just happened to him! He saw our other dogs in the
pens in our backyard and trotted down the driveway to see us. He was
very underweight, and we couldn’t just let him continue to wander around
in the country. He’s very friendly and sweet, and we were able to get a leash on
him to take him to the vet here. Our Vet used to raise Plotts, so he
identified him immediately.. He said he looked about 2 yrs old, and that
Jake was probably gun-shy, that’s why the man got rid of him, since he
was probably a hunter. Well, we had him neutered and given his shots.
We promptly built him a pen and had a doghouse built for him. He won’t be
hunting anymore, but we wanted to make sure he got plenty of exercise,
so recently, we built a larger enclosure so each dog could have their time
of running around as much as they needed. In his case, a large fenced in yard
would be a huge advantage. to let him run!
Jake is the consummate watchdog, barking at everything that doesn’t belong
in our yard or on our property. But toward us, he’s very loyal and affectionate, not a kisser,
but he loves to bury his head in your chest while you rub and pet him. He never
even play-bites like many dogs. As with most hounds he just wants to run around and
sniff every thing! Hounds are so energetic, I haven’t been able to take a full picture yet of him!:)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a Staunton Plott Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Plott Hound for sale in Staunton, or seeking a Plott Hound dog from a breeder in Staunton.

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