Rescue Me ID: 17-06-06-00515Rocky (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    It was quite an adventure to rescue this very lovable dog. He's been a pleasure to keep. We are unable to keep him ourselves but want to help him find a good home. His vet checkups said he is in good health and expect him to do fine with his heart-worm treatment. He is now up to date on his shots and has a rabies license. If you would like a very lovable dog, please contact us. We will check references. Thank you.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-06-00142Hannah (female)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    'AWW she is so cute', is the reaction sweet Hannah gets when anyone meets her! With short legs, her age and breed guess is April 15th. lab/hound. She was rescued from Kentucky along with her siblings, after being dumped at a high kill shelter. Looking for an affectionate pup who loves to be held and get belly rubs? Then Hannah might be a match for you! Her foster mom says she is really smart and catches on to training quickly. Already knowing 'sit', almost housebroken, learning to walk on a leash gives her a head start with her forever family. As a typical active puppy, she would really enjoy another playful dog in her new home. ... (Read More)Running around the fenced in backyard, with her brother and foster siblings, is one of her favorite things to do. She will need someone home most of the day to continue her training and socialization. Even though she loves her foster family, she is looking for her forever family. If you think that might be you, please go to www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com for adoption information. There you will also find the application to fill out and send back. Thank you for your interest in adopting! *Breed, age and size are a guess and not a guarantee. **We are foster home based and always in need of more foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more puppies and dogs we can save from high kill shelters. Without out amazing volunteers, these puppies and dogs would never know what it means to be loved and taken care of. For more information on fostering, please contact alwaysroom4morepaws2@yahoo.com.

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