Myrtle's Story...
Myrtle (04-081) is a female basset who was found as a stray in Canton. This tri-colored girl came to BHRG pregnant and gave birth on June 23rd. Myrtle delivered eleven pups, and they've all been adopted. But Myrtle is still looking for a home of her own. Myrtle is is wonderful. She has gained weight back slowly but surely and then she'll be spayed soon. She loves to play with kids of all ages - even toddlers. Myrtle also gets along with cats and really likes other dogs...of any breed! She is very playful and energetic and still chews like a puppy. She loves to run as fast as she can! As for potty training, she stays in the kitchen and goes out when her foster family comes home. But if you give her free reign of the house, she'll go everywhere. She loves to jump up on you but she's working on that (because of the small kids in her foster home). She does love to be outside but she'll let you know when she's ready to come in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Myrtle, 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.
