Kohl's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Kohl's Story...
Hello, my name is Kohl. My foster mom says that is a kind of eye makeup, but I am quite naturally beautiful. I am housetrained, and the tiniest, cutest, lap-sized mini-basset ever! My foster mom found me at the pound and knew right away I had to get out of there.
I was in pretty bad shape, I am very skinny, probably from having a bunch of puppies and not enough food. I weight 26 pounds right now, but I am sure I will never be more than 34 or 35, I am just right to carry around and sit on laps. I am 6 or 7 years old, and am on a medical hold while I gain enough weight for my spay and dental. I have some eye irritation too, that made my eyes red, but I have drops to fix that.

I am really loving it here, but my foster brother and sisters just won't leave, and I want this place to myself! I tried to evict ALL of them, and now they call me Attila the Hun. None of them left, and I have to stay in my ex-pen or outside when my big foster brother is around. He weighs 100 pounds, and I still keep trying to make him get out of the house every chance I get, and last time he kinda pounded me.
My foster mom says I'm lucky I'm still alive after he made a squeaky toy out of me, but it hasn't made me quit trying!


I am getting along OK with the other smaller dogs here, as long as they don't want to get attention from my foster mom when I am near her. I don't even want them in the same room when I am getting a cuddle, THEN I get snappy and growly at all the other dogs. My foster mom is teaching me something called 'manners' around other dogs though, and I am learning.

I want to have my humans all to myself, I love people! As soon as I have my spay, I can find a proper home, with someone to take care of me who knows I am all the pet they need. I don't want to share them. I like visiting with people of all ages, and I really liked the kids we met in the park. I love to run in the grass. One wonderful petit-basset is all anyone needs - won't you make me yours? Do you have an empty lap for me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kohl, 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.
