Devito's Story...
SWEET LITTLE GUY!

SEP 1, 2012:

Devito was one of the dogs chosen to represent Almost Home at the Wintergreen Craft Fair this weekend.  I was fortunate to be the volunteer assigned to walk Devito during this event as it gave me a chance to get to know him better.  He is a really sweet little guy and so friendly with everyone he met and every dog he met as well.  I couldn't help but get the feeling that Devito was approaching everyone with the hopes that one of them might take an interest and adopt him.  He so much wants to be in a forever home.

Devito is such a sweet little fellow. He loves children, adults and other dogs. He tested wonderfully with cats too! He loves to walk with you and is now 100% leash trained. His eye infection has cleared, but he does suffer from dry eye so he will need inexpensive eye drops twice a day for the rest of his life...........a small price to pay for such a wonderful friend.

Devito is a male basset hound/beagle mix - approx 6 years old.  He is a wonderful little dog.  He was rescued from animal control just in time and boy is he happy to be here !  He is great with other dogs, people, and children.  He has not been tested with cats yet.

He is still getting used to being walked on a leash but knows the SIT command.......especially if you have a french fry in your hand ! He is very clean in his kennel.

Devito is being treated for an infection in his right eye, but should be totally healed shortly.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Devito, a Lovingston Basset Hound/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Beagle for sale in Lovingston, or seeking a Basset Hound/Beagle dog from a breeder in Lovingston.

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