Dalton's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Dalton's Story...
Rescued from a high-kill shelter in North Georgia, this precious pup was going to be put to sleep the day we rescued him due to lack of space. We're so happy to have been there for him.

Dalton is a very shy guy. He does forms bonds with people, especially women, but needs a very slow approach. He'll do best in a home where relationships aren't rushed and he won't be expected to be instant friends with every new person he meets. Dalton was born around June 2014 and weighs 16 lbs. He loves being around other dogs! If you have time and patience and are looking to take on a dog as a special project, Dalton's your guy. He just needs to be shown the world is not such a scary place.

Dalton has heartworms but we will see him through this. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and your other pets will not contract heartworms from Dalton. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Dalton is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows he's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.

Please be Dalton's rescue angel!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dalton, a Marietta Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Basset Hound for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Basset Hound breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
