Higgs's Story...
Higgs/Higgens was at the shelter in Kentucky a long time. There is always a surplus of hounds in the shelters down south. Higgens weighs 35 pounds and is 1-1/2 years old. Contrary to popular belief my experience with hounds is they are lazy and affectionate. His favorite place is curled up on the "dog" couch cuddled with my husband. At first Higgens was very overwhelmed with new experiences. I believe this was from lack of exposure and confidence that people were safe and were going to treat him well.

It has been fun to watch his growth and confidence increase. With some more patience and time to gain confidence you will end up with a very sweet affectionate dog. He is house broken. I don't crate him because he doesn't have any behaviors that require it. Once he is settled in I will work on walking on a leash. He doesn't pull as much as he is lead by his nose. He barks but not a lot and is starting to dance and prance when he sees someone from the family. He lives with a cat and other dogs and does well with both.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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