Abby Plott Hound Mix Albany, NY
- Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.
Abby plays like a puppy and we think she is almost a baby herself - probably just a year old. Abby was a wonderful mom to her babies and now deserves a home of her own. Abby gets along with other well behaved dogs with proper introductions.
Abby is 41 pounds, spayed and housebroken.
Abby clearly did not have the best start with humans but boy has that all changed! After just a couple of days, she now likes to throw herself against her human for cuddling and rubs. She allows all handling, even when the vet came for an exam, shots and a microchip! The only time we still see signs of "scared Abby" is if you are carrying something in your hands but her foster mom is working on that.
We are looking for a special home for Abby, one that will have the time and patience to continue with her training and socializing. We would only place Abby in a home with older children as she is fearful of new people at first.
If you are interested in meeting Abby, please complete an application at our website, www.helporphanpuppies.org. Please note our adoption requirements and feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
Please note: All of our dogs are fostered locally a minimum of 2 weeks. Adopting a dog that has been fostered locally is a very important consideration. Animals that are fostered locally in private homes allow the fosters to learn more about the dogs personality and allows for making the best match possible. Also, animals that are transported into our area and placed directly often carry diseases, including parvo and distemper. Animals can also become ill on transports to the northeast, as they are exposed to other animals in route. If you have any questions regarding these diseases and the risks of not adopting locally, please contact your vet.
Also consider any group that does not require a home visit. If they are not conducting a home visit consider if they are vested in where their animals go. As an organization, we invest a significant amount of time into all of our dogs, including crate training, house breaking, obedience training, and determining each dog's personality to consider making the best match possible.
Help Orphan Puppies is registered with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. Our Rescue Registration Number is RR047.
Please note that Petfinder requires us to identify a breed/breeds. We do our best to determine a puppy's breed but without both parents present, we are unable to guarantee a puppy's breed.
