George's Story...
George (01-211) is a 6 year old tri colored male with a beautiful "classic basset" face. He was found as a stray by a local humane society. He came to BHRG with a female basset who was adopted earlier this year. He is a sweet, loving boy who constantly craves the attention of his foster parents. He enjoys giving and receiving hugs and kisses and he expecially enjoys sitting in your lap. He often whines when he doesn't feel he's getting enough attention and he sometimes gets protective of his human attention by using a low growl when his basset brothers and sisters come near. Overall, he gets along OK with the other bassets in his foster home but he occasionally growls at them when they get in his personal space. George is housetrained with a doggy door but he continues to have a few accidents when the doogy door is inaccessible. He is eager to please his humans and should soon be fully housetrained. George needs and deserves a family with no small children or cats who are willing to give him the time and attention he needs to work through his issues. It is very difficult to NOT fall in love with this sweet boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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