Layla's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Layla's Story...
Layla is a very sweet and gentle girl. When she first arrived, she was a little fearful, but has adjusted very well. She learned to use the doggy door and does all of her "business" outside. She loves to be brushed and was happy to be bathed, and even seemed to like the attention of getting her nails trimmed (a very unusual trait for a basset hound!). She has a significant overbite and because of this she eats a little more slowly than the rest of my K9 crew so I stay nearby during dinner and treat time to be sure the others do not take advantage of her slow deliberate chewing. She has no food aggression issues at all and shares toys and bones. She love to run and play with her foster sisters & brother, but does have a tendency to bark at play and we are working on that. The vet said her Valley fever is almost gone and she only has to be on the meds for another 2 months.

Layla's previous owners surrendered her to the Humane Society. Because she is currently being treated for Valley fever, she was not considered fit for adoption and that when AZBHR stepped in to rescue this sweet girl. She is 3 years old and spayed. She is almost finished with her treatment for Valley fever. She is afraid of brooms, mops, and hoses and disappears quickly as soon as she sees one of these. She is housebroken, knows sit and stay and walks well on a leash. She seems to love everyone and welcomes visitors with a happy bark and tail wag.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Layla, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix 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 Phoenix 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 Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
