Frank's Story...
Frank is a red & white neutered male who was dumped at the shelter in Albany by his owners. He is super sweet and will roll over for a belly rub if you just look at him. This 7 year-old is is really doing well in his foster home and has made great progress. He is very clingy but he is truly a sweetheart. He has adapted to the fact that he is not going to be sleeping in the people bed every night - the little devil - and has quit whining when we wake him up. He is a lover in every sense of the word. He moans when you pet him - really cute. We originally thought he was growling but then we finally figured it out. He does not like sharing the couch with the other dogs and does try to establish his dominance, but he is learning that being the oldest gets you only so far in life. He is a gentle soul and does get along with other dogs and with kids. He eats well, sleeps well, and walks on a leash like a dream. He HATES storms. He's working on housetraining. Frank will make a nice addition to your family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Frank, 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.
