Charlie's Info...

I am purebred and a special needs pet.

Charlie's Story...
Hi, my name is Charlie. I am now 2 years old, and I have the energy of a pup! My foster Mom said that I am a "special needs" dog. That is because I had Parvo when I was only 8 weeks old and suffered from a very high fever. Although I did recover from this awful disease, this fever resulted in some brain damage, so I now have some neurological problems which sometimes cause me to have seizures. On top of that, I had to have surgery on my leg (I can run and play like a champ now) and my eyes were very badly affected. In fact I have had corneal transplants in both of my eyes. My medicine runs about $100 a month for the ‘phenobarbital’ and ointments to keep my new eyes healthy. Since I have had the transplants done I can see better and do not become startled as easily as I used to.

Since my surgeries my trainer Crystal took me under her wing and I lived with her for some time. I learned good manners while at her home and became what she referred to as rehabilitated and adoptable. The BEST part of being “rehabilitated” is that I have been adopted and am living with my “forever mom” and my older 4 legged brother, Ralph. He is the best, and we get along great. He likes to play almost as much as I do. We race around the house like crazy dogs and we are both so happy when Mom comes home. It is GREAT being adopted and finding my forever home.

Although I have been adopted my mom could use help in paying for my expensive monthly medications. Please consider becoming my angel to make sure I can continue to be a happy and healthy boy. If you can help me, call the basset folks at 602-225-7800. Thanks.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, 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.
