Facts about Dalton

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Basset Hound Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
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!
