Sprig's Story...
Sprig & Tripp were found somewhere near Wrens/Avera GA by a postman. They are either brothers or father/son... both are active, very sweet and affectionate. These two red & white fellows were definitely house dogs, were well cared for, and don't really show any signs of abuse. And both are housetrained! They get along very well with the other basset and the three cats in their foster home. B.B. the cat has taught them to respect personal space. Sprig and Tripp do well with kids too but have not been exposed to tiny ones. They both know some basic commands. These two are very co-dependent - like to eat, play, and sleep together. They really need to be kept together if at all possible as they have severe separation anxiety if the are apart for even a very short time. They are very cute together - Sprig rests his head on Tripp when they sleep and they love to wrestle and play. They are both 5 to 7 years old and weigh in at around 50 lbs each. What more could anyone want from a great pair of hounds?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sprig, 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.
