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.

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.
