Spottie's Story...
Spottie is a beautiful either Foxhound or Treeing Walker Coonhound. We were told that he is a Coonhound but he really looks more like a Foxhound to me. He is tall and stately, super graceful and gazelle-like. Scottie is heartworm negative, vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. He was given to the shelter by his family because their 3 year old child was alone in a room with Spottie and another dog, a pit mix. The child was bitten by one of the two dogs. The family didn't know which one had bitten the child but decided to give Spottie to the shelter. The shelter couldn't put him up for adoption because of the possibility that he might have bitten a child.... but no one knows which of the two dogs bit the child.
We were willing to take him into rescue in order to give him a chance. He is super sweet and friendly and a complete joy to have around. He would be a great running companion for someone. He is a gorgeous dog.
Our adoption fee is $300 and the fee to transport to Putnam, Ct. using Rescue Road Trips is $185. We check vet references and do home visits prior to an adoption. We require that our dogs be on monthly year round heartworm prevention. Please email for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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