    Daisy is a joyous, playful and friendly, eight-year-old, 39-pound, female Beagle / Basset Hound-mix looking for a loving guardian. This girl loves to go on walks and car rides, knows the command sit, crate-trained and housebroken when kept on a very frequent schedule. She gets along with other dogs and people of all ages - she loves children, but she is way too interested in cats and other small creatures; she's quite the hunter!

She never skipped a beat and was full of tail wags and kisses the ... (Read More)moment she came home.

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Daisy is a happy, active and extremely friendly, eight-year-old, 40-pound, female Beagle / Basset Hound-mix. This girl loves to go on walks, jogs and car rides, knows the command sit, and crate-trained. She gets along with other dogs and people of all ages. She's active and fun; Daisy loves to chase a ball, but she won't always retrieve. Feena, her very best friend and sister, is a sweet, strong and initially shy, eight-year-old, 65-pound female purebred fawn and white Boxer with a cropped tail and natural ears. She's nervous at first when she meets new people - especially men. But, she warms up quickly and gives tons of slobbery kisses. ... (Read More)Feena loves her walks, jogs, and car rides, and gets along with other dogs after an introductory walk around the block together. Feena is housebroken and crate-trained. These girls have lived their entire lives together and love each other even though they are quite the mismatched odd couple. When you feed them, they switch bowls in the middle and complete each other's meal '| it's really cute. Daisy and Feena were dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control by their family when they could no longer keep them. I met them during a photo shoot and brought them home as my fosters, so I have gotten to know and love these girls. They need a home of their own, preferably together. To meet and possibly foster/adopt Daisy and Feena, please contact Sheri directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. They are being fostered in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. Their adoption fee of $400 as a pair benefits rescued pets. Feena and Daisy are spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, fecal tested, heartworm-tested and on monthly heartworm preventative. Daisy recovered beautifully from breast cancer surgery in March and Feena has a bad right rear knee '| besides that, they are healthy, happy and incredibly fun! (Less)

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.
