|Bassets Available for Adoption|
Snoopy settled-in relatively quickly and has been making progress in getting comfortable with his foster family and learning more manners each day. He has come from a challenging situation where he was raised primarily in one household and lived in filth most of his life and was not given proper nutrition (only processed people food) where he received no training.
He is small for a basset, weighing in at 38 lbs and looks like there may be some other hound dog mix in him. He is a young and energetic 3 year old who love to take walks. He always enjoys snuggling with people and will always get up when someone is moving about the house and follow them.
Snoopy free feeds and best enjoys his food when you add some canned food to the kibble. He is approachable by strangers, however, will bark when a stranger shows up at the door. We have not seen him interacting with cats, but during our walks he does show a desire to meet the cats and squirrels along the way.
Snoop generally has the run of the house and deals well with separation, he is left for periods of 8-10 hours while his fosters are at work, he whines a little but settles down and is quietly waiting for our return each day. He has never had an accident in the house while we are gone throughout the day. He is also left free in the house throughout the night where he quietly sleeps, never disturbs anything and no accidents throughout the night.
Snoopy is most active when we are around him and he will sometimes pee or poo when we are in the room with him. We try to combat this through regular walks and be vigilant to when he is most likely to offend.
Snoopy is very active and loves to play with his chewy toys and will require some attention to meet his demand for play. He has yet to break the habit of mouthing your hand when you play with him (never biting) and he will find things to chew on (shoes mostly) in an effort to gain attention.
We do not know how Snoopy behaves around children, however, until his jumping on people is under control, young children are not recommended. Snoopy would be perfect for a family of adults who can assist with his training and give him the walks and attention that he deserves.
If you can give Snoopy the love and attention he so needs and deserves, please complete an adoption application. If you already have an approved application on file, please email and let us know you are interested in adorable Snoopy.
Details coming soon on our Corsette (basset/corgi mix) :)
