My story

Please note that we are a TX based rescue that transports our dogs once they are adopted. All our dogs reside in foster homes in TX. Please fill out an adoption application at haydudeequine.org

Leo - Give me a lap and I'll be forever yours!!
Leo meaning lion, brave and of strength. I have the coloring more like a tiger but hey lions are cool too! I am definitely strong and well I can be brave (really I can). I'm really just a love muffin but don't tell anybody (we can keep that just between us).
I was adopted to this really nice family. I had a boy of my very own and I really really loved him. But well they had one of those weird smelling things called a cat. I guess I don't really care for them. I thought it was pretty fun to chase but the cat not so much. As sad as they were, they had to bring me back to start my family search all over again. My foster home is really nice. They take me for walks all the time and are working on my leash skills (I still get excited sometimes and can pull but am doing really good on the gentle leader) so I can be really good for when you and me take walks together. And I have a brother I spend a lot of time with. But I really just want my very own family. Of course I need one with no cats (hamsters, bunnies, birds, etc probably won't be good either).
I'm still a youngster and will need daily exercise and playtime. That's my favorite things, well maybe snuggling with my people is my favoritest. Oh and eating too. Well darn I just love them all. I'm a big lap puppy that doesn't know his size ( i really do but I just love laps!) and being on your lap to watch our favorite shows on TV is just the greatest thing since sliced bread. And sliced bread with Peanut Butter on it ranks up there pretty darn high too.
I'm really a very good boy that just wants a family to love me. I can guarantee to return the love plus some. All you have to do is look into my eyes and you'll see all the love and devotion...all of it just for YOU!!! Please fill out my adoption application.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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