Rescue Me ID: 17-01-10-00547Shorty McMaxter (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there. My name is Shorty. I'm about 2 years old and I weigh about 40 lbs. I was brought in to the pound, They said I was a stray and they had been calling me 'Max'... Well, later that day, it was dicovered that my owner had posted on a rehoming page trying to get rid of me... So yeah, the people who I thought loved me and cared about me brought me here to the pound and dumped me off without the courtesy of admitting I was their dog and giving the pound workers my history, so unfortunately, all the pound can tell you about me is what they have seen since I have been here at the pound. The day I first came in, I was afraid and boy did I ... (Read More)have a big attitude... Now that I have had time to settle in, I have been a very good boy. I will just need a family who will give me some time to adjust to them. I have been good with the other dogs I have been around since I have been here at the pound. The posting my owner had made about me said I didn't like cats, so maybe a home without felines would be beneficcial for me. If you're looking for a cool looking, sweet little dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm Saturday: 9 am- 12 pm. The pound is CLOSED to the public on Sunday. There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-30-00328Oscar (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    OSCAR is a Bassett hound/ Labrador mix. He has been living with his brother, Milenko, that I am also posting on here, at my family's home for about a year and a half. They are both black and have medium length hair. MILENKO is about 40 pounds, short, and kinda sausage shaped, but is very dense and muscular. OSCAR is larger, around 50 something pounds, and mostly looks like a black lab. They are both dog door and house trained, though they currently spend most of their time outside (they come freely between the basement and the back yard). They are very friendly and good with adults and children that are at least 7 years old . I have ... (Read More)a baby that I don't trust them alone with, but they are not bad with her either; they just get too excited for it to be safe. If you have the time and patience that I lack, however, I believe that they could both become very well behaved around any age person. they are good around each other, though they do get into occasional sibling squabbles where they just bark back and forth at each other. They have not been around other dogs other than their siblings, so I don't know how that goes. They have all of their first year vaccines, but we haven't been able to afford anything past that. Unfortunately, we got them just before we learned we were going to have a baby. we have found that it is just not financially possible for us to keep them anymore, as well as we haven't got the space now that our family is larger. I would be happy to see them both find a good home, whether it is together or apart. I think they would be happy either way as long as they can get the kind of love and attention they deserve. I have to find a home for them by January 20th, otherwise I have to take them to the SPCA. Please contact me if you can give a great home to either or both of these very sweet dogs! (Less)

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 absolutely adores going for walks, or rather tracking down ALL the exciting smells out there. He had a rough time before he came to us as he was abused by children. He should therefore 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 and Sammi. Like many other shy dogs, he would do best in a home with another dog to show ... (Read More)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! Learn more about Buddy and see his nose in action on Youtube! (Less)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    This is our sweet Sammi, a senior beagle/basset mix of about 10 years old. She was rescued from death row at the pound along with her sister Lily and is waiting patiently to find a new home. Sammi is a sweetheart who loves people, big and small, and gets on well with other dogs. She does like to be the alpha though, so should not go to a home with a dominant dog - she wants to be the queen! We don't know how she does with cats, but, like Lily, could probably be trained to be around them. She has quite bad arthritis for which she is currently taking medication, but still enjoys getting out and about and, like Lily, would benefit from ... (Read More)shedding a few pounds. So, if you have a warm comfy spot and plenty of love to give, please consider giving Sammi (and even better, Sammi and Lily together) a forever home. Learn more about Sammi on Youtube! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-20-00053Lily (female)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Meet the lovely Lily! Lily is a super-easygoing beagle/basset mix, about 10 years old, who loves to go for walks, lie around in the grass or get loved on by people. She gets on great with other dogs and lived with her sister Sammi (our other senior beagle girl) before she wound up on death row at the pound. Although Lily has not been cat-tested, she is very relaxed and gentle, so we think she could probably be trained to live with cats too. She does love to eat and is very overweight, so needs to go to a home where she will get the exercise and nutrition she needs to get back to a healthy size. Her food issues also mean she can sometimes be ... (Read More)food aggressive, but this is easily dealt with by separating her from other dogs during meal times. The rest of the time she is as sweet as pie. Could you be the one to give Lily a loving home in her golden years? Learn more about Lily and see her beagle nose in action on Youtube! (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.
