Ducky's Story...
This darling senior Basset Hound lady is Ducky! Ducky came to us from a rural animal control. One look at that face and we were in love. Ducky is so sweet and goofy, she has us laughing all the time. She is around ten years old, and she does sleep a lot; but she loves to cuddle with anybody who will let her. Ducky likes to peruse the dog beds around the classroom to find a dog who will cuddle with her, she had no cuddling bubble though and the dogs usually get up and leave her in bed alone when she gets too close. Ducky would love a house with a dog or people to cuddle with!
Between Ducky's age and her knobby, basset hound legs she walks with an odd gait. It doesn't stop her from running around in the yard though!
Ducky truly is a special senior lady, who deserves a special senior home! Her adoption fee is the usual $175, as we've had to fully vet her and she will be having a dental done. Ducky would fit in great with any family, she loves all people, children, and animals. She's just a truly great and all around lovable gal in search of the perfect home to retire to :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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