Watson's Story...
Watson is a 2 year old yellow Lab/Bassett hound mix. He has the body of a Bassett, but the personality of a yellow Lab!

Hi! Wanna play? I'm Watson, and I'm about the perfect sidekick! I'm even sidekick sized! I'm about 2 years old, and I'll admit, I haven't had anyone show me the proper way to act in the house, but my foster home is helping me to become the perfect dog that I know I can be! I really like running around the backyard with my foster brothers, and I do like a good game of fetch! I'm the perfect gentleman when it comes to eating, waiting my turn and sharing food and water like a boss! Like any good lab, I'm a little hard-headed, but all I want to do is please you and be around my family, and PLAY!

I love kids, but because I'm still working on my manners around the house, older kids (7 and older) would be best so I don't knock them over! Being an adolescent lab, I'd love to have a doggy friend to play with, but I'd be OK by myself as long as I get lots of exercise and wasn't left alone too long! I am crate trained, though. I like sleeping in my crate in the bedroom, and I sleep all night!

My hobbies include: long walks anywhere you want to go (and I'm pretty good on leash), playing in the sprinklers, playing fetch, and chewing on your shoe (oh wait, I'm learning that's bad)

I'd love to have a confident leader that can continue to show me what good behavior is, and I'd love it even more if we could go to some training classes. I think I'd be great at agility (with my low center of gravity and all)! If you're looking for a fun dog that will make you laugh and will always be happy to see you, that's me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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