Sponge's Story...
My name is
“Sponge”!
I would like to start of by telling you… well, all about me!!…
I am a young male mix breed,
I love playing with other dogs and toys!
Watch out though, as I am still learning, anything you leave on the floor is considered “my toy”. I get along with cats too, but I still don’t know if I like them… If there are going to be children at my new home, please watch me with them because my teeth are very sharp!
I am very active most of the time, I get up at 8 am and have been crate trained at night. Don’t worry if I cry a little at first. When I am not playing I will look for a comfy place to sleep. If you want to keep me inside, I will play, and run until I drop. If you see me near the door or sniffing around make sure that I go out, I am mostly potty trained but everyone has accidents, right?
I usually have a bowl of Purina Puppy Chow in the morning, if you give me a full bowl (2 cups) , it will last all day. Please make sure I have enough water through the day.
My foster family taught me how to sit, and I
know what “NO!” and “come” mean, even if it may not seem like it sometimes.
Needless to say I am a very unique pup. I have my own personality and will not hesitate to let you know how I feel, barking is a new skill!
So far I have only been brave enough to roam the porch, the stairs and big yard scare me a little, but with some supervision I will adapt great to your home and I am really excited to meet you!!! Just please remember that I am still learning this “dog life”.
I am sure that we will be a happy family. My tail is wagging with joy! I can’t wait for a happy life with you and your family! Please click on to this link to find out more on adopting this dog. <

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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