I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.

If you have children, we suggest that prior to applying for a dog, you view the website http://www.livingwithkidsanddogs.com. The information is excellent and can help you determine which dog would be right for your family.
Haddie is beagle basset who is about 2 yrs, 8 months and needs a home where she can be an only pet. With her hound heritage, she must have a physically fenced yard and she is used to a doggie door and loves being outside to chase squirrels and other woodland creatures as much as possible. With teens and adults Haddie is a LOVE BUG and love to cuddles. However, she gets along much better with male dogs than female dogs and shouldn’t live with a female dog although when out for a walk she ignores the other dogs. Haddie gets along is underweight at 30 pounds and has always been somewhat of a picky eater. She could stand to put on at least five and maybe 10 pounds. Most of the time she is likes to hang out but she has short energy bursts and loves playing with tennis balls and floss ropes. When someone is playing with her and her toys she is very athletic—but drop the toy and you’ll have a lap dog! Haddie is dependably house trained but without a doggie door it will take some time to get her used to going outside on a schedule. Haddie is surprisingly quiet for a hound and she doesn’t bay or make other noise. She is currently fostered in an apartment and is doing well even when foster mom is gone. Haddie has never lived with children but when she meets kids she is friendly to them. She has not been cat tested. Haddie’s adoption fee is $150 and she is spayed, heartworm negative and up to date on preventives, immunization, worming and she has a HomeAgain microchip.
