Henry's Story...
Oz, Henry, Zeke are brothers. Henry, Zeke, and Oz were born on Aug 2, 2013. We seldom know an exact birthday, but in this case we do. They were born to a dog who a lady said had come to her house pregnant. She agreed that she would keep the puppies until they were old enough to go to the shelter. The shelter provided food for the dogs and took the pups as soon as they felt it was safe for them. The shelter said the more they were around the lady, the more they think this was her own dog rather than a stray, but it doesn't matter. These pups needed a chance at a better life.

My vet care will be completed and I will be ready for adoption 10/19/13. I unfortunately am unable to meet adopters until I am fully vetted. I am hoping I have an adopter waiting when I am ready.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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