Tessie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Tessie's Story...
Tessie is being returned to BHRG after 5 years with her loving family due to job loss and financial troubles. This sweet, red & white gal has been known as Ginger in her home. She is 8 years old, and she would love a quieter home as she enjoys her senior years. Ginger would be ok with older kids but not small ones, and she gets along fine with other dogs. Her favorite activities include having her belly rubbed and lying in the sunshine. Ginger has been very loved and well cared for, and her family is fostering her while BHRG tries to find her a new home, so that she won't have to live in a kennel environment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessie, 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.
