Sophie's Story...
Sophie is a middle-aged (5 to 7 years) girl who came to BHRG from the shelter in Murray County where she was finally turned in after being the pet of an alcoholic. She is a very happy basset - loves life and loves being around people and other dogs. Sometimes Sophie loves to curl up in a nearby corner; other times she likes to be right there where you can pet her. She seems to be housetrained and enjoys sleeping in the bedroom at night with her foster parents. Sophie enjoys lounging around and taking life easy. The vet said she weighs 94 lbs and MUST lose about half of that. Her foster family is working on her diet. For being heavy, she does manage to get around quite well. Sophie is mostly red & white with a few black hairs. She is very enthusiastic and very appreciative. She will make a great companion and is a joy to have around.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophie, 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.
