Niko B's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Niko B's Story...
Niko has undergone a major transformation in just 5 short weeks! On April 18, Niko's foster mom found him abandoned in a rural Alabama shelter. His little body was ravaged by mange and secondary bacterial infections; he was so weak, he couldn't even stand on his own. With FOR's help, Niko went to the vet the very next morning and began the appropriate medications to kill the mange and to help him to regain his strength. Now - 5 weeks later - he is as good as new! At least 80% of his fur has returned, and the light is back in his eyes. Niko is a WONDERFUL little dog with a lot of love to give to a family. He is 1-2 years old, weighs 16 lbs, and DNA testing revealed that he is a Basset Hound x Pug mix. He looks like a puppy, and he'll look that way forever!

Niko is crate trained (he actually loves his crate!), house broken, and rides happily in a car. He is a quiet guy who entertains himself by dragging all of his toys under the kitchen table and playing with them for hours. Niko loves all dogs (his foster home has 4 large dogs), cats, and even small children. Niko would do well in any environment, but we think he would love another dog to play with and to learn from. Niko is heartworm negative and is vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered. He will be available for adoption by Saturday, May 28, 2016. Please fill out the adoption application if you'd like to learn more about inviting this perfect little dog into your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Niko B, a Huntsville Basset Hound/Pug dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Pug for sale in Huntsville, or seeking a Basset Hound/Pug dog from a breeder in Huntsville.

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