Rosie's Story...
Rosie is a tri-colored lady who originally came to us from the shelter in Gwinnett County in the summer of 2006. She was adopted, but her owner passed away. Then Rosie was adopted by a couple, but her owner developed allergies, so Rosie was returned again. This poor gal is wondering what is happening to her! Rosie is now on a strict diet and exericse program to return her to her original girlish figure as seen in her photos. Rosie is around 7 years old and is up-to-date on her shots and is spayed. She is friendly with all sorts of people and with all of the other dogs in her foster home, but she'd be fine as an only dog too. She just wants to be by your side and feel safe. Rosie loves to go for rides in the car, and she walks well on a leash. This delightful girl is quite a character and is protective of her foster family - dutifully barking at strangers in the yard or any people who haven't introduced themselves. Once she knows you're a friend, she's your loyal friend too. Her only "fault" is that she loves to destroy paper. It's quite comical because she'll hide pieces of paper around the house so she can tear it up when her foster family is away. Recently, the vet discovered a cancerous tumor on Rosie's thyroid which explains her cough and weight gain.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie, 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.
