Archie's Story...
This handsome hound is Archie, a 6 year old salt and pepper Basset hound that would love a happy home of his own. Can you believe Archie was a stray? This sweet and gentle boy walks like he's out for a Sunday stroll.....we can't imagine him actually running away from home! However Archie got here, he's here now and we just love him. Archie is an easy going boy that has such a sad look about him. Although he looks sad, Archie is quite a love that makes friends easily and gets his tail in full wagging swing when you go to talk him for a walk. He enjoys going in our exercise yard to romp, roam, and sniff out the world around him. He is interested in toys if you squeak one for him, but doesn't want to be bothered with chasing one. He's happier to sit by your side and just have you love him. Archie is perfectly behaved and walks nicely on a leash. He seems interested in other dogs and would do well with people of all ages. Archie is dreaming of a wonderful home with a family to love and care for him forever.....please make his dreams come true! File#22917 9/27/13

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Archie, a Forked River 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 Forked River, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Forked River.

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