Patty's Story...
Basset lovers have we got a girl for you! Patty came from a high-kill shelter where most of the animals are euthanized due to lack of homes and space. She is the sweetest girl and very small for a Basset, just 35 pounds. Sadly, we think she was not treated very nice (likely was a puppy mill or backyard breeder dog), so she is a bit shy of humans at first. But she has quickly learned that a nice belly rub and good food makes humans ok! She is doing GREAT. One of Patty's best qualities is that she loves dogs and instantly every canine she meets is her new best friend. Patty does not have a mean bone in her body and freely shares food, toys and human attention. She is truly a sweet, gentle soul just looking for a patient loving owner. She can be a bit of a clown, she likes to play with her dog toys, chew bones, go for walks (with her bone!) and play with other dogs. This is the best dog park dog you're likely to find. Patty will shine the brightest in a home with another kind dog and a fenced yard. It will take her a few days to trust her new family and realize they love her and will not hurt her ~ but then she will bond for life. She was not housetrained on intake, but she's doing great with it! Patty finds comfort and security in her crate, so this too will be required. If you think you can give Patty the lifetime of love, care and gentle guidance she so richly deserves, please contact her foster mom Lisa at 630-479-9562 email at Please open your hearts and home for this deprived lovely lady. She will make a fantastic loving companion to the right family. How can anyone refuse that face!!! Home inspections are required for all of our adoptions, so please, no inquiries father than 50 miles of Naperville/Aurora. THANK YOU

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patty, a Lombard 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 Lombard, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Lombard.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lombard 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 Lombard 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 Lombard paves the way for another one to be saved.
