Delilah's Info...

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

Delilah's Story...
Delilah came to BHRG from Murray County Animal Control. She is a 3 to 4 year old tri-colored girl. She is up-to-date on her vaccinations and will be spayed soon. She is housetrained with a dog-door. Delilah is the mother of the five pups BHRG received from Murray County (Mariah is still waiting for a home). She's a complete "people dog". She loves to be around her foster family, and will follow you from room-to-room. She's a couch-snuggler and loves to dog-wrestle with her foster brother. Delilah is a nester, spending 20-30 minutes arranging her blankets in the perfect arrangement around her. If she doesn't have a blanket/pallet, she'll spend just as long trying to fluff and arrange the carpet around her. She loves rawhide chewies, and will try to hide them behind all the sofa-cushions for later snacking. She is a very picky eater of dog-food, and is a huge begger for people treats and snacks. She loves white bread and cheese slices, and has even snatched these out of the mouths of her foster brothers/sister. She is adept at snagging stuff off the kitchen counter, so be careful if you're making a sandwich and turn your back for even a second. She gets whiny and howly when you leave her alone to go to work. She'd be happier with another dog for company, especially one who loves to play as much as she does.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Delilah, 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.
