Rescue Me ID: 14-12-09-00791Weeble (male)

Basset Hound    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Weeble wobbles, but you can't keep him down! This little boy is not only the cutest fella ever, but he also is a very special boy. He was born the end of September from a breeder and sold. The buyer of Weeble noticed after a couple days that he walked funny and took him to the vet. We are not sure what was diagnosed as vet information was never given, but Weeble was returned to the breeder. Weeble has a genetic condition which causes him to not be able to walk properly on his hind legs. After x-rays, our vet diagnosed that his knees are backwards and he has hip dysplasia. Those are the issues causing his disability, but he also has a ... (Read More)slightly enlarged heart and slightly deformed ribcage and only one testicle. The vet is not concerned with those problems, but we are working on his joint issues. Unfortunately, they can't be fixed but can be managed. Through a generous donation, Weeble has a Walkin' Wheels wheelchair that will grow with him. He can walk for a little bit but after a while, will drag his hind legs and that can cause open sores, infection, etc. He will need daily therapy to include message and joint mobility exercises, as well as daily walks without his wheelchair (indoors only). An adoptive family would need to be prepared for any future needs Weeble may have. As of right now, he is learning to use his wheelchair and is doing well. This boy has spirit! Weeble has been neutered, is current on vaccinations, and ready for his forever home. Weeble will be adoptable to a special person/family who understands his needs are permanent and will require lifelong exams and maintenance. He is a sweet boy with a big spirit and lots of love to give! A video of how he walks can be seen on our Facebook page at For Belle's Sake Rescue. Please visit or like us on facebook to follow his story or complete an adoption application if interested in adopting! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-04-00154Molli (female)

Basset Hound   

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Submissive 

    Molli is a sweet girl who needs a home with adult companions who can snuggle her and give her love. We took Molli in after her single male owner passed away. Our home with children and other animals is not suitable for her. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle especially sharing the bed! The only known health issue is a cyst on the back of her head that grows and then drains. It may be able to be surgically removed but hasn't been a bother to her. Please only contact me if you can give her a forever home where she can relax and lounge and be with adult companions.

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