Walter's Info...

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

Walter's Story...
Walter came into the rescue when his family lost their home. He is about 2 years old and is a nice mix of puppy playful and adult maturity. He has been neutered and also had 3 benign growths removed at the same time. He has three areas of stitches that will come out in two weeks. He is very sweet, house trained, doggy door trained, great with children and good with other dogs. Having said that, he doesn’t need to be with other dogs. He is mostly interested in attention from his foster family people. He loves to cuddle, will climb in your lap at any opportunity and loves to curl up on the couch. He barks a bit when we leave the house but after one week in foster care, hasn’t demonstrated any destructive behavior.

Walter is very thin at 43 pounds and initially was very hard to convince to eat. I have since learned that he will eat any meat and fresh pet dog food and a few select types of canned food. We have progressed slowly to him eating dry dog food mixed in with the fresh pet so we are making progress. He definitely needs to gain weight. The only time he has “counter cruised” is when meat is on the counter. He did steal his foster dad’s bacon cheeseburger for lunch the other day when he came home at lunch to check on him. Now that we are on to him, he is no longer successful but has attempted to also steal ribs off the counter! Nothing else on the counter or tables has interested him yet.

Walter really will be a wonderful addition to the family. He is very loving. He loves to go for walks and walks very well on the leash.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Walter, 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.
