Rescue Me ID: 16-05-01-00491Buddy (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Buddy! Buddy is a quiet and gentle senior, about 9-10 years old, who had a rough time before he came to us. He was abused by children and therefore should go to a home with adults only, although older children may also be possible. Due to his history he is quite skittish and it takes some time for him to trust new people. He gets on great with other dogs though and can always be seen at Second Chance hanging out with his beagle mix friends Bagel, Lily, Sammi, Shane and Snoopy. He hasn't been tested with cats, but he is very laid-back most of the time, so we think it might be possible to train him to live with cats. Like some of the ... (Read More)other shy dogs with us, he would do best in a home with another dog to show him the ropes and give him some confidence. So, if you have another dog - or would like to adopt Buddy together with one of his Second Chance friends! - and can give him a warm loving home to live out the rest of his days, please get in touch!

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **Courtesy Post Patches was born in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. He was born to a stray Potcake mother (that's the term used to describe the mixed breed dogs that run loose on the islands) in January 2014 and taken to Potcake Place, a canine rescue, along with his litter mates. We adopted him from there as a 10-week old and he came with us to the U.S. Patches is extremely well trained and responds easily to both verbal and hand signals. He has been trained to the standards of the AKC canine good citizen exam; but was never assessed because he is leash reactive and struggles with moderate separation anxiety, making it difficult for ... (Read More)him to complete the supervised separation and encountering a friendly dog test elements. He is house broken and will seek out humans requesting to go out when it is necessary. Patches is an incredibly loyal and loving companion. He also has an innately anxious temperament, which has heightened since the birth of our son. Following both behavioral and medical interventions, it is the recommendation of our veterinarian that Patches be re-homed to a person or person with no children and possibly no other dogs. Patches currently lives peacefully with cats. He was neutered as a puppy and is fully up-to-date on all shots. He receives routine in-home preventative care for fleas and heart worms. (Less)

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