Mr. Peabody's Story...
Mr. Peabody is an owner surrender….too much puppy for condo living and working full time. He is a wonderful little boy who enjoys playing with the other bassets in his foster home! He is house trained and crate trained. Basset puppies, like most, require a lot of exercise so a new home with a securely fenced yard and a playmate would be strongly recommended for this energetic, loving boy. He is a very smart little guy (basset translation: into everything and has a stubborn streak) and with the appropriate training and guidance will grow into a wonderful basset companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mr. Peabody, a Barrington 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 Barrington, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Barrington.

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