My story

Ricky is a handsome 2-year old male Plott Hound mix who was brought to the HSOV on June 25, 2022 by a Good Samaritan who had found him on Zanesville Street in Beverly Ohio on June 20, 2022. That kind lady tried in vain for five days to find Ricky's family with no luck :( Ricky was wearing a collar but, unfortunately, there was neither an id tag nor a dog tag on his collar ... And he was not microchipped.

Ricky has a brown/brindle short smooth coat with a large patch of white on his chest and belly, white markings on his legs, a deep chest cavity, a tiny docked tail, and a beautifully-marked face with expressive brown eyes, a narrow white stripe on his forehead, a white muzzle, and large floppy ears.

The Good Samaritan who kept Ricky for a few days told us that he is great with children and also with other dogs as well as cats. He is not yet housebroken. Surprisingly she never heard Ricky bark at all while he was at their home.

Ricky was a little cautious of the paparazzi when HSOV Kennel Tech Lauryn Hamilton took him outdoors late in the afternoon on June 25th. He looked to Lauryn for reassurance and 'protection' from the sound of the camera shutter.

Ricky weighs 43.2 lbs and has a slim boyish figure :)

In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, Ricky will be held for three days so that his family will have an opportunity to reclaim him with proof of ownership.

Since Ricky was not reclaimed, he was neutered on July 15, 2022 and was also given rabies vaccine.

Why adoption is a great option

Ricky (Neutered), a Marietta Plott Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Plott Hound for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Plott Hound dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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