Basset Hound Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Shiloh. He is about a year old and he is a Lab/Bassett mix. He has tons of energy and his little legs go a 100 miles an hour. We were told he was housebroken but we can't yet confirm that 100%. The story we got was that his owner left him with a friend and said they didn't want him any more. The friend didn't want or couldn't have him. He then went to someone else who also couldn't have him so they brought him to us. Lots of movement for this guy but it hasn't change his happy go lucky attitude one bit. He certainly appears good with kids - just want to watch small kids as he still jumps a lot. He gets along find with other ... (Read More)dogs. We have no information on cats. He will be available for adoption on 6/15/17. At that time he will be neutered, current on all of his shots, wormed, heartworm checked, current on all of the preventatives (flea, tick and heartguard) and micro-chipped. If you are interested in Shiloh, please go to our website at and complete an adoption application then come and visit him. (Less)

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