Dolly's Story...
Dolly is a charming 10 year-old (?) lady that is back at BHRG for the second time, through no fault of her own. Her first owners gave her up because of divorce, and her second dad got sent to Iraq. Dolly is totally housebroken and has gotten over her fear of cats. She now snuggles with her foster cat, and gets along well with all the dogs in her foster home. She is a great communicator! If her water bowl is empty, she will bark, then look at a human, then bark again and look at the water dish. She also barks to let her foster mom know when it is time to go out. Dolly has recently been diagnosed with Cushing's Disease, which explains why she has a pot belly and drinks so much water. Dolly will begin treatment for the Cushing's soon. The vets are hopeful that the treatment will help Dolly to live many more years in comfort and dignity. Some people have asked her foster mom why we would want to spend so much money to treat a sick old dog. If you meet Dolly, you will instantly know that she is a wonderful dog that deserves our help. Dolly is looking for a family that will help her to live out her retirement years in comfort and safety.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dolly, 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.
