Margaret's Story...
My name is Margaret. I am a beautiful, 33lb, Spayed, Basset Hound. I was saved from unnecessary euthanasia on March 18th. When Casey came to visit the shelter that day, I was too scared to greet her. The shelter is very loud, chaotic and overwhelming. I was shaking like a leaf. Thankfully, Casey took a close look and saw how much I just wanted to be loved and taken out of that dirty cage. Within a few short hours of arriving at my new surroundings, I completely relaxed. Now everyone can see how sweet, fun and grateful of a dog I really am. I would love a new family. I am very easy going, smart and obedient. I love playing with other dogs and going to dog parks to meet new friends. The doctors think I am about 7 years old, but I don’t feel or act like it! I am in fantastic health and my energy level is great. I am hoping to find a family willing to give me another decade of love and attention. I deserve it! Come meet with me today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Margaret, a Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo paves the way for another one to be saved.
