Ludwig was picked up as a stray in Gwinnett County. This senior gentleman is friendly with people and other dogs. Ludwig is neutered and up-to-date on shots. He has a chronic right ear infection and is allergic to corn, yeast, wheat, gluten, salmon, rice, white potatoes, and he has some contact allergies. He is now 100% blind and at least 50% deaf. Ludwig has been sick for a long time, so his disposition is not always happy-go-lucky, and this is understandable. He takes SSRI for aggression. Ludwig enjoys going on car rides and really enjoys short, slow walks when the weather is cool. He loves to sunbathe in the driveway but hates walking in the heat and will just stop if has had enough! He requires a home that will have time to prepare his meals like a human since he is on a very strict diet. It is understood that he may have abandonment issues as he becomes depressed when left alone. We are lucky in that we work opposite schedules and have an excellent dogsitter. Ludwig sometimes needs reassurance now that he can no longer see. He sleeps in our bed and will sometimes stand at the bed and bark if he is ready to go to sleep and we are not. LUDWIG IS TERRIFIED OF THUNDER AND FIREWORKS! Ludwig may snap if he has been sleeping and someone tries to pet him - typical of deaf and/or blind dogs. Even with these issues, Ludwig is a doll and so, so very loving. He would do so well in a family with just adults who have the time, patience, and love to devote to him.

About Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia

About Our Rescue Group...

Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia is a non-profit, volunteer effort to save abandonded and mistreated Basset Hounds. Our rescue effort began in 1991, and we have rescued over 2,500 Bassets since that time. Orginally privately funded by two volunteers, today BHRG is a non-profit charitable organization which exists solely on donations.

Orphaned Bassets are held in foster care until permanent, loving homes can be found.

Adoptions are held each weekend of the month at locations in metro-Atlanta. See our website at www.bhrg.org for specific dates and locations.

A $200 adoption donation is required for dogs under 8 years of age. A $100 donation is required of dogs 8 years old and older. This donation defrays the cost of shots, spay/neuter, heartworm treatments, and other vet costs.
