Patty's Story...
Meet Patty!! This little cutie is all ready for her new home! Patty was rescued from a high kill shelter in Hammond, LA. We think that she is basset and dachshund. She is a little lamb and would make someone a wonderful companion. She would be a very easy first dog. She is quiet and rides well in the car. She is very sweet and affectionate. She loves other dogs, kids and adults. She seems fine with cats. Please let me know if you would like to foster and/or adopt Patty. She is currently in Louisiana, but we have transports available at no extra charge to the northeast. If you are interested please email

Here is an update from Patty's foster dad......
Patty is our tenth foster. She is a Basset/Dachshund mix at 35# and medium size. She is perfectly healthy and of average energy. I can honestly say she is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever experienced. Gets along with everyone, man or beast. No problems to speak of. Eating habits are fine. No aggression ever witnessed by anyone. I live with my wife and two teenage daughters. There are little kids in the neighborhood who enjoy loving on her and she seems to enjoy everyone. No issues with our cat, Lady. Patty sniffs her and that's it. Lady has come to know Patty is harmless. No potty accidents either.

Patty is just as happy sleeping with us in our queen bed or sleeping by herself in one of the group doggie beds or just slumbering on a sofa. We have no rules about furniture. There are group toys, nylabones, and hard rubber chew items that any of the dogs can have at any given time. All get along and happily share.

Truly, Patty would make a great addition to any home I can think of. I am retired and my wife is a teacher, so someone is here most all the time. We choose not to crate, but have never had any reason to. The dogs live inside our home, but we have a wooden fence(d) in yard that they can roam and visit with the neighbors' dogs through the fence slats. She happily eats dry food moistened with water and doesn't seem to care what “brand.” She is not aggressive when food or milk bones are present and has learned to sit and stay before she gets hers like Gracie does.

She's very easy on the leash, but at 35#, she's easy to control. But she does listen and is not overly tugging us along. Loves to ride in the car and our trips to Petsmart to visit other friendly pets.

I can't recommend her any highly. It seems to me, if someone happens to want a basset, and an easy to live with smaller basset, Patty is the dog for you. I'll certainly miss her when she goes to her foreverhome, but we live with the hope that they are welcomed into a loving, permanent home and family. We call her Patty Penny as she's a pretty and shiny and bright as a penny; especially her eyes.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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