Sweetie Bassett's Story...
I may be small, but I'm full of personality. I love my foster daddy, but would love my own place to call home

Sweetie is a 9 yr old spayed basset beagle mix.  She looks like a small basset.   She’s not more than probably 30 lbs.  She’s fairly small.  She is UTD on shots and HW negative. She was homeless earlier in her life when she was younger.  She was adopted out of Paulding County Animal Control to a woman who had her for about 7 or 8 yrs.

This woman was in her 50s, lost her job at GA Power, then her home and ended up in a homeless shelter in Atlanta.  I took Sweetie into sanctuary at that point.  It’s been over a year and the woman has consented to allow me to adopt Sweetie out should I find a home that I feel would be good for her.  She trusts my judgment and won’t be in a position to take Sweetie back.   I want to her to go to a family in one of the states nearby (NC, SC, GA, TN, AL, FL) so that if for any reason it doesn’t work out, she can be returned to me.  Sweetie was originally very upset by the loss of her home and person.  She lost a lot of weight and made it very clear that she was upset..  I now have her back up to her full weight, eating well and very happy.

 Sweetie is wonderfully funny and friendly.  She’s calm and gentle.She’s potty trained.  She makes herself of service by keeping the area free of any sort of vermin.  There are no possums, mice or chipmunks in my back yard anymore!  She loves exploring and going for walks. She would be great with a mature single person or a quiet at home type couple.  She needs either a fenced yard or someone who enjoys walking her on leash.  She doesn’t like to be around children.  She’s o.k. with them visiting but they stress her out if they are there full time.  She doesn’t bite, she just becomes unhappy.  She’s great with other dogs.  She likes to chase cats.  Right now she can’t be trusted off leash unless she is in a contained area.  She needs someone to work with her on coming on command.  If she is walked frequently, she is less likely to do this. Also I’ve been working with her on “back and stay” when I go in and out the door and she’s been respectful of that.  She now stands back respectfully and wags her tail as I go in and out the door so long as I make eye contact with her and tell her “back”.

 For any questions please telephone me at 706-599-7260 or email me at karnj@ymail.com .  I would be happy to introduce you to Sweetie or let her have a visit with you.  I’m willing to transport her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweetie Bassett, a Decatur Basset Hound/Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Beagle for sale in Decatur, or seeking a Basset Hound/Beagle dog from a breeder in Decatur.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Decatur 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 Decatur 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/Beagle breeders who help with Basset Hound/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Decatur paves the way for another one to be saved.
