Drake's Story...
We're pretty happy that Drake's former owner dumped him on the street for Animal Control to pick up! You see, Drake had not been taken care of very well, and needed some medical attention. He spent 2 days with our wonderful Tucson vet and came out a new dog!! He had to have several teeth removed because they were so bad, and he feels much better without them (and it hasn't stopped him eating of course as he's a true basset!)

Drake is a very friendly and quiet dog, we think he may have been de-barked at some point as he makes a funny noise when he looks like he's barking. He is very sociable and gets along well with other dogs, and he also loves people, he made lots of friends at the vet's office. Drake learned how to use the doggie door in one day, and may actually be house-trained without one. He's a handsome boy and you would be sure to fall in love if you met him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Drake, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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