PawPaw's Story...
Notes: PawPaw, young male, hound/retriever mix, medium size

If you have looked at these pictures in the large size, chances are you have already felt a twinge of concern for this dog with the worried expression on his face. Well, you don't need to worry too much. Some of this doleful look comes from the hound that PawPaw clearly has in his ancestry. The rest of it is simply a reflection of his timidity and desire to please.

PawPaw came from a situation where he was under-socialized, but never mistreated. He is naturally somewhat timid and will need to be encouraged by his new human(s), and we think that giving him structure will help him considerably.

That said, we at Hedgesville Hounds have a suspicion that maybe PawPaw isn't quite as frightened as he acts sometimes. Specifically, we have observed that although PawPaw will quake and posture submissively, he never fails to immediately consume any delicious treat that crosses his path, regardless of the circumstances during which the treat was provided. The treat could have been offered by an enormous angry bear hurling lightning bolts and PawPaw would still manage to gobble it up before beating a hasty retreat. This ability to glom on to snacks is a sign that he is not overly stressed, and an excellent clue as to how to train this cute, sad-eyed guy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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