Bass is a gentle happy dog. He is well trained and knows many commands including sit, stay, and lay down. He is completely house trained. Bass is on the road to becoming a healthy dog after he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. He is doing so well and has his energy back! Bass loves to play with his stuffed animals and chew toys, hiding them in piles of leaves and under bushes. He loves going on walks and exploring the neighborhood. He is wonderful on the leash and very easy to walk. Bass can be a little mischievous and get into the garbage or food on the table or counter, so you have to make sure you keep an eye on him in the kitchen. He has done well with dogs his size, and all people, including children. He loves to play with dogs his size. Bass has not done well with smaller dogs. His history with cats is unknown.

It should also be noted that he is a `Special Needs Adoption` because he has hypothyroidism. This is based on a blood test performed at the clinic here. He will require daily medication for the rest of his life. Further veterinary care may be required in the future & his adopters should understand they are adopting an animal who may be more of a financial commitment than an animal who is not considered to have special needs.

About The Humane Society of Utah

Our Adoption Process...

The Humane Society encourages adoption of its animals by offering a complete package for a single low
price, which includes the animal's spay or neuter surgery, first vaccinations, a complete physical examination by an independent veterinarian, and a leash
for dogs or a carrier for cats. The Society also does its best to make sure that its animals are adopted only to
responsible, caring homes. All potential adopters are required to fill out a preliminary questionnaire and undergo counseling with a shelter employee before adoptions are approved.
