Winchester's Story...
When a man stood outside a pet supply store trying to give Winchester away to any taker, one of our wonderful rescuers in SC was in the right place at the right time and offered to take him and find him a good home. Who knows where this cutie could have ended up had we not grabbed him? And we are so glad we did. Winchester was a little shy at first, but now that he knows he is safe he has come out of his shell and is a lovely dog! He seems to be about 6 months old and weighs about 25lbs. He has been a great new playmate for the resident cats and dogs in his foster home and loves the 16 year old boy too. He would probably be fine with younger kids because he's such a sweet little guy. The barking and chewing come with being a hound and a puppy, but once he is really trained he will be your perfect new family member. If you would like to adopt Winchester, please copy and paste this link to fill out our online application, http://members.petfinder.com/~CT243/sampleform.html. Winchester has been fully vetted including shots, neuter, worming and microchip. Vetting and his transport up north are included in his $450 adoption fee. We cannot be certain what his true mix is.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Winchester, a Westport Basset Hound/Australian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Australian Shepherd for sale in Westport, or seeking a Basset Hound/Australian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in Westport.

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