Rescue Me ID: 14-11-10-00695Iggy (female)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Abused/Neglected 

    Help us help Iggy! We found her wrapped up in ten feet of wire tangled around her neck. After two days of seeing her run around the streets in our neighborhood like that, we finally caught her. We knew we'd have trouble taking care of her, but we couldn't just leave her like that. After a week of warmth, food, and nice treatment, she's a totally different dog. Super sweet, playful, but nicely behaved. It's time for her time as a street dog to come to an end. The problem is, we cannot continue to foster her. She does not like cats, and we've got two. I can't have an unsafe situation in my home-I'd never forgive myself if any of them got hurt. ... (Read More)If you're interested in adopting her, are able to foster, or are able to spread the word, Iggy and I offer our heartfelt thanks. This is URGENT. (Less)

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