Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    I was at the dog park with my German Shepherds this afternoon and a young man, Howard showed up with is two dogs. 'Murphy' part bulldog and part basset hound, and the families other rescue dog played with each other and with Howard. Murphy was an exceptionally nice looking dog, white with brown patches. I commented on how nice looking he was and the man (Howard) started crying. He said it was Murphy's last day. Howard was taking Murphy for one last trip to the dog park, then for an ice cream and then to the vet's to be put down. The dog had bit the family's young daughter and the girls mother is adamant Murphy has to go. The man said ... (Read More)the felt it was mainly his fault because he allowed his daughter (a toddler) to 'play' with Murphy and Howard was not paying attention. He said his daughter had grabbed Murphy, startling him. Howard did admit Murphy had bit two other adults when he was first rescued but that was several years ago and Howard believed it was due to Murphy being abused before Howard's family had rescued him. There had not been any problems until Murphy bit the daughter. Howard said he has been trying to find someone to take Murphy but he so far has been unable to find a home for him. Howard's wife feels bad about it but is adamant they can't risk a more serious situation happening again. My friend was with me with her border collies and we tried to come up with some ideas to save Murphy. Neither of us can take on another dog as we both work all day and Murphy is going to need someone with him, especially initially. I suggested he contact the Humane Society or the Broome County Dog Shelter, not necessarily to leave Murphy there but to at least get to buy some more time for Murphy. The man, Howard is very forthcoming about Murphy's past. Murphy needs to I have no idea if this is appropriate for me to be contacting your group but I have no idea what else to do. Ideally it would be great if you were able to tell me you knew of someone who could foster Murphy, but I realize that is a lot to ask for . What I am hoping is you can give me some advice what to do. It would be such a shame to have Murphy out down. He seems like such a nice dog both his physical appearance and his demeanor. If you can help I will contact Howard (Murphy's dad) and if you give me a way for him to contact you I will pass that info along. Or if you would rather speak directly to Howard I will provide you his contact information. Thank you so much for any information or suggestions you might have. I just can't get Murphy out of my mind. I hope we can help him!! My name is: Mark McGinley Phone (607-775-3021 most likely you will get my voice mail but I will return any calls). My e-mail is: Please give me some advice or direction! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basset Hound in New York

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.
