Gordie's Story...
Hi! I'm Gordie! I am a sweet little guy and a little rolly polly! I am such a good dog.. I am house trained, crate trained, love to go for car rides, adore playing with balls, and just in general loved to be with people. I even got along well with other dogs (as long as I was introduced right and I tend to get along with bigger dogs better) .I would love to be a travel buddy with someone. I want to be with people all the time. I know basic commands like sit, lay down, shake, and even roll over. I kind of have selective hearing through, because sometimes my nose overpowers me and I forget what I was supposed to do. That's a hound for you! I am looking for a family with older kids and would really like to be the only dog, however, 1 other dog would be OK. Again, I just need to be introduced right to them for the first time. The rescue said they could help with that. I have to have a fenced in yard, because of the breed I am. I like to run around and act silly and my nose gets away from me. I'm sitting here hoping and wishing for you to come... Please go to, find me in the dog pages,click on my picture and fill out the adoption form.

Adoption Fee is $ 200

Adoption fee covers for our Adoption Package for dogs which includes: heart worm checked, treated for any fleas and worms, monthly heartworm medication, microchipped, up to date rabies vaccination, spayed/neutered, grooming, DHLPP vaccinations. Discounted 30 days of health insurance, and FREE basic & problem solving training before and after adoption if needed, and veterinary treatment for any other issues the dog may have. A journal is provided by the foster parent of the dogs progress while in foster care if they have undergone any training. Full health records are provided to the adopters.

The Adoption fee we ask of adopters is not to pay for the dog. The dog itself is free! The Adoption fee is used merely to reimburse our rescue for veterinary expenses that any responsible owner would spend anyway when bringing a new dog into their home. Howeverever if there are any funds left over from one dogs adoption fee, it is used to help the next dog that comes along. Sometimes FSFH's veterinarian expenses on one animal will be less than this fee, but another dog might require several hundred additional dollars worth of care. Without being able to recover at least the minimal veterinarian expenses on our dogs, FSFH could not continue to rescue. FSFH's fee does not cover the general cost of keeping a dog in rescue (food, equipment, etc.). FSFH relies solely on donations to cover all other expenses related to caring for their rescued dogs. Thank you for understanding.

If interested in adopting please go to to get an application. Adoption applications are found by clicking on the animals pictures.

We also accept donations of dog food, cat food, cat litter, and large durable dog toys.
Vet care Donations needed also!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gordie, a Bay City Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever for sale in Bay City, or seeking a Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Bay City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bay City 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 Bay City 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bay City paves the way for another one to be saved.
