She is well house trained, loves to go for walks and car rides. Sheena is used to sleeping in a crate at night and get along with kids and other dogs of all sizes. Sheena would do fine in a home or apartment, would do alright with or without another dog present and seems to really like kids so would be well suited to a family. She has received all her vaccinations and is fixed. Sheena came to us Heartworm positive but has received treatment for this condition. Her adoptive family will need to continue to give her 2 heartworm pills a month until she is fully heartworm free. Sheena has a wonderful, loving nature and is in need of a family that is willing to offer her a second chance at a happy life.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basset Hound in Alabama
    Basset Hound Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Basset Hound is an exceptionally gentle, friendly dog that makes a great family pet. Basset Hounds are great with children. They require some patience to housebreak. Basset Hounds can do tricks, especially for treats. If overfed, a Basset Hound can quickly put on weight which strains its legs. Basset Hounds need plenty of exercise to stay healthy, but should be discouraged from jumping so as not to stress their legs. Basset Hounds can live in an apartment but need long walks and opportunities to run and play.
