Howie is a 5 to 6 year old hound who was dumped at a woman's house in Conyers. He has completed treatment for heartworm and is currently living the King's life in Johns Creek while steadily working on his "fear" issues with grown men. He does well with "almost-grown" men, as he has a college-aged foster brother (human) who spends lots of time walking him and spoiling him. Howie, known as "Roger" in his foster home, has made significant improvement since coming to his foster home but will need some patience acclimating to men - preferring women and older kids. Roger is a GREAT leash walker and enjoys his fine Designer collar and dog beds (which are his for keeps). Since his mom grew up with the owner of the Tucker Pet Supply and he has his own account there (LOL). Has become protective of his female caregiver (Foster Mom). Roger is a bit skittish and nervous of loud sudden noises. However, he's also VERY snuggly, loves to be rubbed on his shoulders and we find him so sweet. He only seems to have an "accident" if he is startled by something or confused or fearful.

About Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia

About Our Rescue Group...

Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia is a non-profit, volunteer effort to save abandonded and mistreated Basset Hounds. Our rescue effort began in 1991, and we have rescued over 2,500 Bassets since that time. Orginally privately funded by two volunteers, today BHRG is a non-profit charitable organization which exists solely on donations.

Orphaned Bassets are held in foster care until permanent, loving homes can be found.

Adoptions are held each weekend of the month at locations in metro-Atlanta. See our website at www.bhrg.org for specific dates and locations.

A $200 adoption donation is required for dogs under 8 years of age. A $100 donation is required of dogs 8 years old and older. This donation defrays the cost of shots, spay/neuter, heartworm treatments, and other vet costs.
