Shady's Story...
Shady is a handsome, 2-year-old boy who was came to BHRG from the shelter in Henry County. Shady is a rare "blue" (more like gray) basset - a recessive trait. Shady came into the rescue with heartworms, but has successfully completed treatment. Blue bassets tend to have skin issues as part of the recessive gene, and Shady is no exception. He has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and will require inexpensive medication for the rest of his life. If you can provide for Shady's care, you won't regret adopting this young guy! He loves to play with toys by tossing them around and around. He also is very active with his foster brother and loves to play in the backyard. Since he is high energy, a home without small children would be ideal as he may knock them over. He would also love a home with another active dog, but is not required. He is crate-trained, sleeps well through the night, and loves to cuddle with his foster parents. Please consider adopting this beautiful boy and giving him a forever home. Hypothyroidism is easily regulated with very inexpensive medication.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shady, 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.
