Rescue Me ID: 14-10-11-00261Ranger (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ranger was rescued from life on a chain, but sadly DDB has not found a foster home for him yet. He has had to be boarded at a vet clinic for months. Ranger seems to be a Basset Hound mix since he is very low and long. He is about 15 months old. This super friendly guy has a great personality. He loves people and other dogs, even little ones. Since Ranger likes to chase cats, it would be best for him to go to a home with no cats or one with a very dog-savvy cat. He will need some training in house manners and basic obedience. His ideal home would have a yard where he can play off leash and maybe another dog to keep him company. Are ... (Read More)you the wonderful person or family who can give Ranger a loving home? He will repay you with slobbery kisses, snuggly cuddles, and all the love you will ever need. Please apply to foster or adopt Ranger today. (Less)

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)

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *This dog can only be adopted within the Washington D.C. metro area.* Howdy, Miles here. I'm a hound with a heart of gold. Take me out for walk and I'll show you what a lover boy I am. I'll lean on your legs and beg you to give me some scritches on my neck and behind my soft long ears. I'm about six years old and a sturdy 63 pounds. Look at this mug! Really can you resist these basset wrinkles? I think not. Plus, I've got a fun, but calm demeanor -- just perfect for a family dog. Hope to see you soon, Love Miles Please see FOHA website for more details: http://foha.org/index.php?id=27&petid=972

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basset Hound in Virginia
