Elvis's Story...
Hi! My name is Elvis, but everyone calls me Brody. I love everyone. I get along well with dogs, cats and love to snuggle with people. I just want to be petted and cuddled. I'm a happy boy with a great big smile - I can brighten any cloudy day and will always be there to greet you with a kiss and a tail wag. I like to go for walks and I know some behavior commands, like sit and come. I'm about 3 years old and weigh just 28 lbs. Please give me a chance to be your newest best friend. You'll be so glad you did! Adoption fee: $75 and includes testing, deworming, vaccinations and neuter.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elvis, a Troy Beagle/Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Basset Hound for sale in Troy, or seeking a Beagle/Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Beagle/Basset Hound breeders who help with Beagle/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
