Buster Wigglebutt's Story...
Here's Buster Wigglebutt! Buster is an extremely happy 60lb, 5 year old Basset Hound/ Black Lab mix. Buster is quite the character; he will nose drive onto his back to receive lots of belly rubs from his foster parents.

Buster is already completely house trained and crate trained. He will willingly enter his crate when asked and is quiet when his humans are not home. Buster knows sit, paw, and stay and is working on down and leash training. In true basset hound manner, Buster is extremely food motivated, making him a great candidate for more training!

Buster has been great with most people he's met while in his foster home. He loves attention and lives for those belly rubs. Unfortunately before coming to Broken Tail Rescue, Buster was victim of abuse (a single incident). During his recovery Buster was repeatedly poked on an open wound and Buster bit the person poking him. The bite was minor and most likely intended to be a warning that Buster was in pain. Although Buster has shown so much love and affection to his foster parents, Buster would benefit from a quiet and low stress home where he could feel safe. Buster would also benefit from additional training to establish routine and so he can bond with and develop trust in his humans.

Buster has gotten along really well with other dogs! He did well with the dog in his previous foster home and was great at doggie day care, but we think Buster would do best as the only pet in home. Buster has shown some guarding behavior over his sleeping spaces, especially when other dogs are around. He will need an adopter that will continue training providing positive reinforcement. We think he would love a doggie friend to have play dates with!

Buster is being fostered in Medford, MA.

The adoption fee is $350.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buster Wigglebutt, a Worcester Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever for sale in Worcester, or seeking a Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Worcester.

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