George's Story...
George is a tri-colored boy who came to BHRG when his owner could no longer keep him. He is as gentle as a lamb except he does not like children under 10 yrs old. This age was tested. He's fine with older kids. We have also been told that he did not like cats. This fellow is around 9 years old, and he has dry skin. For that he is on Atopica 1x/day given with a spoonful of peanut butter. He eats Iams Veterinary Formula Skin and Coat KO Dry Dog Food, but after speaking with the vet, it may not be allergy-related. His foster mom also gives him a Vitamin E capsule 1x/day. He does not have any food allergies and tolerates other food very well. Except for the very young children, he was a perfect gentleman at the last PetSmart adoption event. He gets along great with other dogs, and he does bark when he sees his foster mom or at meal time. But he listens very well. He is still working on his house training but his issues may be the new environment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

George, a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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