CALVIN (SOLD) Happy-go-lucky Basset Hound

CALVIN, born May 4th, 2016 is a good-natured, affectionate, and intelligent guy! He's also handsome and in excellent health. He's had all of his puppy shots and his rabies vaccinations. He became available through no fault of his own, his previous owners, regretfully, felt forced to find him a new home. Their beloved dog of 3 years simply could not learn to accept Calvin into their family. The discord in the house became too stressful, so they entrusted me with the task of finding him a great home. We know that it will be easier to find him the great home he deserves with a little training. We are offering him for just $1,200, the cost of our 2-week board and train program (he's received even more training). Our Puppy Development Program is preparing Calvin to integrate into your family as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Check below for Calvin's graduation date and pricing. If you're interested fill out our puppy application and we'll get back with you soon.
