Staephanie's Story...
Just one look at these pictures will explain why Stephanie is asking for a little help. Have you ever seen anything like this? We certainly hadn’t, and neither had Stephanie’s doctors. Their best guess is that someone took a branding iron to little Stephanie not just once, but twice – plus she has some other less extensive burns behind her ear.

At 5:01 one evening AZBHR got a call from Pima Animal Control - Stephanie’s mandatory 72 hour hold had expired at 5pm and they wanted to know if we could come and get her. Heck yes we could and did! She went straight to our great vets at VCA in Tucson and was made comfortable and readied for surgery the next day. Stephanie had to undergo extensive surgery to clean up those wounds and cut out all the dead skin and infected tissue, and then be sewn back together – thank goodness for that extra basset skin!

You might think that after such abuse, and having roamed the streets for goodness knows how long that Stephanie would be skittish and untrusting, but in spite of all she’s been through she is the sweetest, friendliest, most playful girl you could imagine. She is estimated to be 18 months old, and she has now had all her shots, is microchipped and spayed, and in a couple of weeks after recovering from surgery she will be looking for her forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Staephanie, 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.
