Stewy was housed in an outside ... (Read More)kennel at a county shelter before we rescued him. Stewy's fur is starting to come back. In a few weeks his fur will be as perfect as his personality. Hands down! For a dog to live a long life, a healthy life, respecting the dog's biological needs is the key. Grain-free food! Rotate manufacturers.

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Pogo is a 5 month old little boy looking for a home with children. This is definitely on his must list. He is a short-legged little guy but we expect him to be pretty good sized adult dog 40 to 60lbs with short legs. He loves to chase after the ball and he loves his squeaky toys. He has done very well with the house breaking. This guy is not quite old enough to be neutered so he can go home with a neuter contract $50 will be refunded after he is fixed at 6 months old.

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

lnteresting Basset Hound Trivia Low-Cost Florida Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Basset Hounds were given to George Washington by Lafayette after the American Revolution. A Basset Hound can smell almost as well as a Bloodhound. The image of a Basset Hound was popularized by ads for Hush Puppies shoes. Basset Hounds are celebrated in several annual American Festivals in which a king and queen Basset Hound are crowned.
