Jay-Z's Story...
Jay-Z came to AZBHR after a rescue organization in Texas was forced to close its doors. The biggest mystery to his foster family is why anyone would have given up this beautiful boy in the first place! He is such a sweet, gentle, healthy, playful, well-behaved and gorgeous basset. He is the perfect four-legged addition for any family that will give him the love he deserves. He is completely unphased by the 16-month old toddler running around his foster house, who takes great pleasure in harassing the dogs. He is doggie-door trained, and walks well on a leash. He likes to play with squeaky toys, and loves playing fetch with them and redistributing the toys outdoors. He gets along well with his foster brother bassets, but hasn't been tested with cats. The Texas rescue marked him "no cats", but there isn't any evidence to support that label. Jay-Z has no bad habits as far as his foster family can tell. His 5th birthday is in March, which is a great age... he still likes to play and go for long walks, but he is just as comfortable laying on the couch or the dog bed. He needs a worthy forever home to call his own. Are you his forever family?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jay-Z, 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.
