Some of Our Adoptable Hounds

 . Charlie .
 . Charlie .  . Charlie .  . Charlie .  . Charlie .  . Charlie .
We call this guy Charlie the Coyote Fighter. He was left outside to his own devices for most of his life and his owners told us that he likes to “run off the coyotes at night.” Adding insult to injury, he was also regularly chased and aggravated by young children in the family so he needs to be in a home with older children or adults. (And no coyotes please!) He loves the indoor pampered life, as we knew he would, and coexists peacefully with several dog siblings and one nine year old human boy. He deserves a good, easy, spoiled existence from here on out. Do you have room for this sweet fella? There is no better gift than adopting a senior dog and making their last years the best years of their life. The transition into your home will likely be easier with a senior hound as he/she will not need constant monitoring. Show the dog the water and food bowl, the way to outside for potty breaks and the dog bed or couch and the hound is good. You will know the senior’s temperament, as it is already established. A senior hound require less exercise as it will take shorter and less intensive exercise to fulfil the hound’s activity needs. You will skip the wild puppy years, so your shoes and possessions will be safe. Consider a Senior Dog. You won’t regret it as they still have lots of loving and snuggling to give.

Jesse is Daisy’s loyal caretaker. These two bonded pair are the sweetest dogs. Jesse, age 7, will make sure Daisy is taken care of before she settles in. And of course, they love to cuddle together. Jesse is still a spunky basset and loves to run around but will gladly stop for food. Boy does she love all things food! Daisy is still a little skittish and has only recently realized that inside the house is ok. I’m sure once she discovers the couch she’ll never leave! Daisy’s favorite thing is to lay outside on a warm patch of grass and suntan. She is a very laid back lady and looking for a nice yard to enjoy! How can you pass up these loyal duo?! You can call these two ebony (Daisy) and Ivory (Jesse), they are their own piano. They need a home with minimal steps. If you are interested in these sweet basset babies, visit www.BellyRubs.org and fill out an application today!
