Buster's Story...
Hello, my name is Buster. I am a mature male basset just waiting to give you my all my love and attention. I am quite loveable, but really do prefer to be only one of two fur children, or better yet your only fur child. I do like to talk, or as my foster mom refers to it, grumble while I walk around the house. I absolutely LOVE baths and stand completely still. I enjoy my daily walks too.

Buster is totally house-trained, and is living peacefully with several other bassets. He probably wouldn't enjoy a busy household with small children, or having puppies around, but if you're looking for a loyal companion, this is your boy.
Buster can break your heart in so many ways! First of all, he was taken to the pound to be euthanized because his family didn't want to pay for the treatments he needed. Fortunately they called us and we were able to run over and grab him. Secondly, this old boy has experienced quite a bit of neglect in his 8 plus years. He had not been neutered, his teeth had not been cleaned, he had infected ears and his spine is in poor condition, maybe due to a long-term diet of poor quality food.

Since we took him in he has been neutered, has had a dental cleaning, started on treatments for his ears, and is eating a healthy diet so that he can gain some weight and get a shine to his coat. He is also on pain medicine for his back. Lastly, there is his attitude. He will give you the most adoring look for any small kindness you show him, and he follows you around like a little lamb. He doesn't like to have you out of his sight and will come trotting after you with a goofy grin on his face

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buster, 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.
