Gordy's Story...
Gordy is an adorable low rider looking for a family to love! We think he is a“Bassador”…aka a fancy term for a Labrador retriever crossed with a Basset Hound. Gordy is about 1 year old and weighs 35#. He came into a high kill shelter in Louisiana as a stray. No owner came to claim him and sweet Gordy was scheduled for euthanasia on his 8th day at the pound…thankfully he was rescued instead by Bonnie Blue Rescue friend PAWS of NE LA and is now looking for a forever home up north. Gordy has adjusted well to foster care. His foster mom reports that “he is a super sweet dog with a great attitude”. Gordy has caught on quickly to potty training. He walks nicely on leash and is good with kids and other dogs. He still has some puppy antics and loves to play and chew on his toys…he especially loves antler bones and rawhides. He has lots of fun playing with his human foster “brothers” and can’t wait for them to get home from school each day! Gordy would do well in an active family who can give him plenty of playtime and help him continue to mind his basic doggie manners so he grows up to be a well behaved boy! He is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and current on prevention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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