Bode's Story...
Bode is an energetic male about 2 years old. He is house trained but does occasionally mark. He is doggy door trained. He was originally taken from a weird situation and ended up in the Douglas shelter. He came to the shelter with his “significant other” and their 6 puppies! It must have taught him a lot about kids because he really likes interacting with most kids that he meets. However, he is pretty skittish with alpha dogs, alpha kids, loud noises, quick movements, baths, and rainstorms etc. He does do well with other dogs once he gets used to them as long as they aren’t too alpha. He loves to play with plush dog toys and run around the yard. He does like to go on walks but doesn’t know any leash manners yet so he does pull quite a bit; on the contrary, he is great at riding in the car and loves to look out the window. As far as his personality, he is very cuddly and loves to crawl into your lap or bed for cuddle time.

Bode also loves story time before his fosters kids go to sleep. He’s had a lot of upheaval in the short time he has been from Douglas to his current foster home, so he does have some anxiety when his family leaves. He does a little barking and has chewed up some newspapers. Nothing major and this may resolve as he becomes more comfortable in his surroundings. Overall, he is a very sweet thin boy who needs to put on a few pounds and grow his confidence a bit.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bode, 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.
