Elmo's Story...
Elmo's 5 year old basset boy in need of a forever family. He prefers to have other dogs around, since he full of energy. He likes long walks in the park.

He likes Iams in the pretty green bag and scrambled eggs. You see he got used to the eggs when came into the rescue very sick. He is all better now and runs the basset 500 in the back yard, the living room, the kitchen. What a different dog from when he first came to use. He was so sick and never ever talked at all. He now tells you things, like fresh water please, I want to play, I'm tired or I want to go outside.

He only asks to go out the front door for a walk. The back door he just stands there and stairs at you. He finally figured out he likes the dog bed and his other foster brother and sisters beds too. He was not sure of them at first, but with a bribe of strawberry's he will do anything - including get on a dog bed. He LOVES strawberries and yogurt dipped strawberries and peanut butter....mmmmmm with strawberry's...

Elmo gives kisses and pats you when he wants some attention with his stubby little leg. Talk about cute. He also gives hugs if you come down to his level or if he catches you on the couch looking lonely...or at least he thinks you are. Elmo does something cuter by the day – you don’t want to miss it!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elmo, 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.
