Barbie's Story...
Hello? May I speak to Ken, please?


Hello, Ken! This is Barbie, surely you remember me? Well, life got a little rough since we've last chewed bones together........I went to a stroll and someone called the doggy cops on me. You're never gonna believe this, Ken! They threw my gorgeous self into a cell with so many hoodlums, the types of dogs that we high-class girls turn our noses up at! Oh my, I sat there for over a week, waiting and listening. (No one bothered to do my hair and my nails, no pampering, no attention on me whatsoever!) Anyway, after a couple of days, I started listening to what these other dogs were saying about "Rescuers".


I had seen some of those people come in and out of this place a few times, and many of them looked at me through the windows and kept on walking by. Can you believe that? Not a one of them came in to check on me until finally ONE DAY - ONE FINE DAY, when I over heard the big humans talking about "the room" and heard them say I was next. What? What room? Where am I going? To a salon? What is this "room"? Well, not too long after that, one of those "rescuers" who kept talking to me through the window, came inside with a soft and well-worn leash, and took me out of my cell. She played with me, kissed me, and told me what a beautiful girl I am.


Sheesh, we got outside, and I tell you what - I have never smelled air that was as refreshing as the air I smelled that day! We got in her car (and as badly as her car looked and smelled), I knew I was going to be going to a better place than where I was.
Wow! I have been to see the doctor, he gave me a "tummy tuck" and some shots (Botox, maybe?), and I have been allowed to soak in a tub, had my ears cleaned, a pedicure, and some lovely doggy cologne! Ok, this isn't as good as having my own home, but MY "rescuer" tells me that I'll have another home soon, and she'll make sure it's the best home in the world!
Well, Ken, just wanted to let you know what's been going on in my life. I hope you're happy, I know I am now, and I feel blessed that I wasn't sent to that "room". Have a good one, my friend, Ken, maybe we'll catch up again sometime at the doggy park?
Wags and wiggles,
Barbie

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barbie, a El Paso 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 El Paso, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in El Paso.

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