Ridgeway's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ridgeway's Story...
Ridgeway was found as a stray dog with a leash dragging from his collar but he was never claimed. The animal control facility where he ended up doesn't even try to rehome dogs--they just put them down. Fortunately a basset lover contacted us so we could save Ridgeway's life and find him a forever home. This beautifully bred boy is 2-4 years old and weighs about 55 pounds. He is house trained as he is diligent about keeping his kennel trained. He walks well on a leash, and as you can see, he is kennel trained as well. The foster family says he is great with the kids, other dogs, but they don't have a cat. He has a typical basset personality, playful and silly but really knows how to ask for a belly rub. Ridgeway is in rescue with Happy Hound Rescue, a Minnesota non-profit, all volunteer organization with 5013C status pending. Our dogs all are heartworm tested negative and have drontal for worming, DA2PPvL+Cv vaccines for distemper, parvo, etc., bordatella vaccine for kennel cough, rabies vaccine, Capstar to kill fleas, Frontline to prevent fleas and ticks, spay or neuter, and HomeAgain microchip. Ridgeways's adoption fee is $250.00 which is refundable for up to two weeks if the placement is not successful. View our website at www.happyhoundrescue.org to see our available dogs and the information we need to make a successful placement.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ridgeway, a Osseo 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 Osseo, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Osseo.

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