    Meet MURPHY an adorable, super sweet boy who has had a streak of bad luck recently. First his family dumped him and his brother in an over-crowded kill shelter. The night before a rescue was to pull them, his brother (whom he was very dependent on) disappeared from the shelter. How scary to see his only friend in the world leave and not return. Then the rescue decided not to pull him and Murphy was placed back on the kill list. When Lulu's heard all this, we offered to help Murphy.

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-18-00296Lucy (female)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Lucy is a very loyal, smart dog. She 'grew up' in a home with a doggie door and yard so Lucy was independent and had a sense of freedom. Now we live in a high rise condo where Lucy has to be walked in order to go outside. Her ideal home would be with someone who is home during the day to walk her during the day or a house with a doggie door and yard.

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