Adrian's Story...
Adrian is a female basset who came to BHRG when her owner entered a hospice program. She is adjusting very well into her new surroundings in her foster home. Adrian has already decided what bed is her favorite, much to the chagrin of her basset brothers and sister. She is a true basset... a real professional beggar. She has the sweetest personality and just wants to be with her foster mom. Her favorite place is laying next to the front storm door looking outside. She thinks she is quite the watch dog. Although she is an old gal, she is very spry, she loves her daily walks and is always eager to go. Of course, she also loves her naps. It appears there may have been some abuse because whenever you go to pet her she cowers to the floor. But she loves to be petted and loves kisses. Adrian would do great in a home where someone is at home most of the time. She gets along great with other dogs, well at least other basset hounds, although she has no problem telling them off when they bother her. She needs and deserves love and warmth in her golden years.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Adrian, 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.
