Please contact Carolyn (email@example.com), 937-760-1769 for more information about this pet.
OBHR picked up five dogs from a breeder and whisked them away to Cincinnati to be vetted. There were a breeding pair and three offspring that were all kept outside in a kennel area. When picked up all were filthy, covered in fleas, underweight and smelled terrible. Oliver is the eight year old father of this brood. He had an entropian eye, floating patellas, whip worms and needed a dental. Now, Oliver is doing great in his foster home! He is very lovable, happy and laid-back. He is non-confrontational with his foster brothers and even when a Shih-Tzu gets snippy, Oliver will just walk away. He is doing very well with house training and lets his foster mom know when he wants to go out. He bounces up and down when it is meal time. He did very well with two grandchildren under the age of six and even ran and played with them. Oliver is being kept in a crate at night and he goes in easily, without any anxiety, and sleeps through the night. He goes to the door for an out after naps and playtime. He is learning "sit" when it is time to eat, he walks well on leash without pulling and struts right along with the other dogs. He plays fetch and is doing well with "bring" and "drop". He is also learning to use his inside voice when he has something to say and wants attention.
Oliver is a lover and this fabulous little guy and will be a sweet addition to any family. Oliver is fostered in Wilmington, OH.
Rescue Group Info...
Ohio Basset Hound Rescue Inc. (OBR) is an all volunteer organization dedicated to helping the homeless hounds of Ohio
Our volunteer network spans to the four corners of Ohio. Our funds come solely through donations and fundraisers. OBR does not have a shelter of its own. Our “shelter” exists through our foster families that open their hearts and homes to a hound in need.
Once these homeless hounds are with OBHR, the dog is then given all necessary medical attention – all vaccinations (including bordatella, rabies & distemper series combination); heartworm test – monthly preventative is given if the dog tests negative, treatment for the disease is given if they test positive; spay/neuter – to prevent more hounds from facing as uncertain of a future; and any other needed medical treatment.
These hounds are then placed in foster care, so long as there is a foster home open and ready to take them in.
Whether it is dinnertime manners, proper behavior techniques, or social housebreaking skills – OBHR foster homes do it all. These homeless hounds remain in foster care or in a boarding kennel (if a foster home is unavailable) until a forever home can be found for them.
Please watch our website for upcoming events http://www.ohiobassetrescue.org/Events.html
Potential adopters are required to complete and submit an adoption application as the first step in the adoption process. The adoption application can be printed out directly from OBHR’s Web site or submitted on line at http://www.ohiobassetrescue.org/Appl.html.
OBHR adoption applications will not be processed if the form is not completed in full, or if the application does not contain the signatures of both the applicant and their spouse / significant other. The information provided in the adoption application will help us find the best hound for you and your family. We will check with your veterinarian as to the consistency in the level of care that your current animals receive. We also will check with your landlord (if you rent the property on which you reside) to verify that you are permitted to have an animal at your residence.
Potential adopters will not be permitted to set up a meeting with a rescue dog in a foster home until they have an approved application with Ohio Basset Hound Rescue. Once the potential adopter has an approved application, then arrangements will be made to have them meet with the rescue dog at the foster home.
A minimum donation of – dogs under 1 year $250.00 - for dogs 1 – 8 yrs. old – $200.00 for dogs 8 years and older $100.00 , is required and will be payable at the time of adoption and is not refundable. OBR reserves the right to change the adoption donation without prior notice on the OBR web site or applications.
The adopting family also will be will be required to sign an adoption contract at the time of the adoption. All dogs are spayed/neutered; inoculated (includes rabies, bordatella vaccinations, distemper series combination), heartworm tested and kept on monthly heartworm preventative prior to adoption. This is the basic care that each hound receives. If any additional medical treatment/attention is needed, OBR will provide that to the hound at the direction of our veterinarians (ie. Dental, heartworm treatment for those who test positive, deworming, etc.)
Please note that OBHR Adoption Applications may take 7 – 10 business days to process. Potential adopters will be contacted by a collect telephone call with the status of their application, once the application has been processed and reviewed.
