Bayou's Story...
A-ma-zing. This word cannot be used enough to describe the precious, beautiful, darling girl that is Bayou. While she is a recent addition to the RESCUE family, our volunteers couldn't help but to fall head over paws with her. Bayou has a special little spirit about her. At first glance, she might seem like a fun loving, goofy girl whose legs have a hard time catching up with her body when she runs. She is those things, but there is also something very soulful about her. She has many layers that her new family will joyfully uncover as they get to know her.

In true hound style, it should not come as a surprise that Bayou is an "A class" sniffer. She does enjoy her walks ever so much, and is many times on the lookout for a furry little creatures to spring from the bushes. Bunnies are exciting! (kitties not so much--she was scared away by a hissing cat while out on a walk recently).

While she has not shown much interest in plush or squeaky toys, she does enjoy fetching balls and chewing on bones. She has a cute little horse gallop and loves to play chase with squealing children. Bayou has been very responsive with commands, but needs a gentle hand. It appears as though someone has been too firm with her in the past.

As much as Bayou loves yummy treats, she has an incredibly soft mouth and takes treats very politely. She is so gentle that a three year old had no trouble at all feeding her. Speaking of three year olds, yes, Bayou passed the kid test with flying colors, that is if they don't mind a slobbery kiss or two. She showed a lot of interest with a young girl on a recent outing, and even broke out her latest doggy dance moves.

When Bayou's exercise and playtime needs are met, she is content to settle down in the house and snooze the hours away. She loves to "burrow" in a blanket to make her nest.

In our eyes, Bayou is a perfect dog, however, it has to be said that there may be some qualities that some may consider not so perfect. :) If you are a neat freak, you may opt to look at other matches, because our girl comes complete with wrinkles filled slobber, ears that drop into her water bowl and drip water all over the floor, and perhaps not the neatest eater. ;0 To many of us, this is even more endearing, but we realize not everyone feels this way.

Bayou will have you at "woof". She deserves such a special family to call her own, and oh how lucky they will be to have her in their lives!!

Bayou weighed 61 pounds when we saved her from the kill list.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bayou, a Phoenix Bloodhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bloodhound for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Bloodhound 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 Bloodhound breeders who help with Bloodhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
