As you would expect of this breed, she has her nose to the ground always. She doesn't miss one smell! Holly would be great at scenting, which would really keep her busy. Holly loves to play!

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-25-00889Rerun (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rerun was found in a ditch on the side of a road in Mechanicsville; he was lifeless, all of 11 lbs and literally a feeding ground for the mammoth sized fleas crawling in and out of his eyes. I took him home to clean him up, feed him, and give him a warm place to die in dignity, but he survived the night. I decided if he was going to fight for his life, the least I could do was get him medical attention. The vet addressed the immediate concerns which were Sarcoptic Mange, Hookworm, flea and tick infestations and heart worm testing. After 14 days of antibiotics he came into the care of the MAPR vets who discovered the need for immediate ... (Read More)surgery on a hernia. Upon X-raying the area in his abdomen, the injury was in the shape of a boot that leads us to believe it was due to blunt force trauma. His intestines were leaking into his body. They also found two puncture wounds on his hind leg that would not heal. Upon further inspection they found a tooth imbedded into his leg. He spent three months in a large crate on bed rest due to the heart worm treatments and 2 months in an XL cone. Today, he is full of life and love. Mornings are his favorite and he loves to sit by the bed and just wait for me to wake up. He then runs in circles and bounces around to head outside and explore the yard. He still has a feverish appetite and has become a little sneaky goofball. He is always playing some prank around the house, climbing in grocery paper bags or getting stuck under the bed. His favorite things are the sun, a warm porch, a warm lap/couch, and a friendly back scratch. He is extremely low key and is truly looking for his lifetime partner in crime. Big Dogs tend to make him nervous and fearful, so he will not be adopted to a home with large dogs. He does fine with small dogs (Less)

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