Max's Info...

Max's Story...
Max the basset is looking for a new home! He was born 10/25/14 and is only in rescue because his parent is ill and sadly has to find him a new home. Max is extra sweet and housebroken! Max gets along with cats and dogs. He really needs a fenced yard and would LOVE that. As you can see, he is fine in cars.. He is used to a doggie door from his previous home. We would LOVE to place Max in a home with his buddy Abby that he has lived with, but our first priority is a HOME at the end of the day - and definitely a bonus if they were adopted together. We realize that is a lot to ask the average adopter but we wanted to at least mention just in case there was even a possibility.

We recommend and encourage you to complete an application at before coming to our next adoption event. To find out if I will be attending our next adoption event, please email

Adoption events are every Saturday, excluding holidays, at the Petco located at 11331 W. Broad Street, Glen Allen, VA (next to Trader Joe’s) from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
