Rescue Me ID: 17-11-18-00185Zuma (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Zuma is a 7 month old puppy packed with power and energy and about as sweet as they come. Zuma came to Denver as a newborn with his mama. Mama was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas along with her litter. Zuma was adopted by a nice family only to find out he was way too rambunctious for their 2 year old. He is very smart and has learned a lot. He is housebroken, crate trained, knows his basic commands ( sit, down, roll over, shake, come etc) He is working on stay and leave it. He does walk on a leash (needs practice) and does ok in the car though he sometimes gets carsick. Zuma is about 40 lbs (could lose a few) and has no idea how ... (Read More)big and how strong he is, thus making it difficult to play gently with small children. Zuma is all puppy and needs to have exercise and buddies to play with. He does not like being left alone but we are working on that. He would much rather just sit in your lap. Zuma needs a special adopter who has the patience to finish training a willful puppy, who is home a good deal of time, who has a roomy yard and other dogs. Zuma loves to play with any dog. Cats not so much. Zuma's mama was a Dachshund/Aussie. His father was a traveling salesman in Lubbock. He may have some Shar-pei or Bull terrier or staffie in his genetic make-up as well. Zuma is UTD on shots and neutered. Respectful children 12 and older and he's currently in the Denver area. Please complete an adoption application at https://form.jotform.us/72074690104148 if interested. WDCR requires an application, home and reference check and a meet and greet with current pets and/or children in the home. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basset Hound in Colorado
    Basset Hound Dogs can make good pets in Colorado 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.
