Testimonials

Hi Diane,

We are so happy with Rosie (formerly Brandy) our new Papillon puppy. We were a little hesitant to pick a puppy online but after talking with Diane we were more comfortable. Since she was a Chrismas present it was so nice of you to send an updated picture before the holiday so we could show her to her new mom. She was thrilled Santa was getting her a baby of her own. We came to visit her at 5 weeks of age. We were impressed with the kennel, it was clean and all the dogs looked great. We got to meet her mom and dad. If we could of we would have taken her brothers and sister too (lol). Everyone we met was very nice. We even got to watch a puppy being born. At 7 weeks we came back to get her. She had a bath and the paper work went quick. We took Rosie to our vet and she was given a clean bill of health. He was impressed at how healthy and happy she was. She is now almost 11 weeks old and weighs 3 pounds(hopefully you can open the attachment).She is happy and healthy and very spoiled. We have two older papillons and Rosie just follows them around. We think she is the smartest puppy we ever had. We would highly recommend The Happy Woofer to any one looking to add to thier family . Over all it was a great experience.

Thanks so much,

Peggy McAlister and family

Description

Famous as the "Hush Puppy" dog, they have the head of a bloodhound and a long, close to the ground body, similar to that of a dachshund. Their short-legs and heavy bones set them apart from other breeds. Movement is humorous looking and slow, but not clumsy. Though at times they can be stubborn, they are generally mild in manner. Basset Hounds have a deep, sonorous bark. A lovely and amusing household pet for people with a good sense of humor. Basset Hounds are essentially hunting dogs with strong natural instincts and will power. Wonderful family companions as they are absolutely obedient and devoted to their masters.
