Opie's Story...
Opie (02-179) is a tri-colored, primarily black, 2 year old. He is housebroken with a dog door. He gets along well with all people and children. He does not jump on people and we have yet to see hear him growl, even in stressful situations. Opie does not get on furniture, but could be trained to do so if his adoptive family desires. He loves to play, especially with other dogs, and always seems to take on the submissive role. Opie keeps himself busy during the day while his foster parents are at work by taking every toy he owns out through the dog door and scattering them throughout the lawn. He is very loving and still has some of that puppy energy, but does not chew things that are not his. Opie does get a little scared at sudden loud or unfamiliar noises and doesn't like to be awakened suddenly, so a noisy household would probably not be a comfortable place for him. He has a limp in his front leg due to a genetic problem, but since taking Rimadyl it has improved greatly and is rarely noticeable.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Opie, 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.
