Rescue Me ID: 15-02-15-00445Rebound (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Rebound. He is a 5-year-old basset/cattle dog mix, which may be one of the cutest and most unexpected breed mixes we have seen. He is a friendly, bouncy guy who loves people. As a puppy, Rebound was very sick. His family worked hard to get him healthy, and healthy he has been ever since. These days he could even stand to lose a little weight. Unfortunately, his owner is very sick and can no longer care for him. Rebound likes all people, but has never been around small children. We don't suspect he would have an issue with anyone because he is just that sweet. He is good with other dogs, but he can be a little grumpy on rare occasions ... (Read More)and, therefore, has to be kept separate when not supervised (he has never been aggressive, just bossy). Rebound has never been around cats. Rebound is neutered, and will be up-to-date on shots and microchipped this week. He is also housebroken. If you would would like to offer Rebound a forever home, please send us an email and we will send you an adoption application. (Less)

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