O'Brien's Story...
O'Brien (04-022) is a male basset from the Rockdale County shelter. Here's a few words from O'Brien himself. I know that my name sounds Irish, but my foster mama says that I'm really a Texan like her. I had heartworms, but the vet treated me and I am now heartworm free. My Basset foster brother is workin' really hard at teachin' me how to be a genuINE hound dog. The people that I owned before didn't deserve me or any other hound dog for that matter. I wasn't used to bein' inside at all. I was very nervous at first, but I am settlin' in nicely. I have had only two accidents in the house the entire time I have owned my foster family, and my foster mama says that's a near perfect record. I LOVE my crate...I bark at my foster mama if she forgets and shuts the door. I like to go in there and lay down...my foster mama usually leaves the door open so that I can come and go as I durn well please. There is this strange lookin' hound here at my foster mama's house...she calls it a cat. I bark at it quite a lot. Some people were mean to me in the past, so when someone disciplines me, I get stressed out. It would be best if there are no little people in my forever home. I really need a special family to love. I am still learnin' to play, so my foster mama says that I'd do fine as the lone hound in the household OR with another hound. Well, my foster mama says it's time for grub, so I'd best be goin'?! Can I come eat at your house soon? I'd be happy to own you forever and ever...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

O'Brien, 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.
