Hello Basset Hound lovers. My name is Buster and I am loving life these days. A few months back, I found myself sick and in a shelter; things were not going so well for me. But the wonderful folks at BHRSC rescued me, and things have been looking up ever since. I spent some time at the vet’s office getting healthy, and have been hanging out with my foster family since September 2014. The humans all think I’m about 10 years old. I don’t know for sure, but that sounds about right.
When I first joined my foster family’s pack of two basset hounds and a min-pin, I was still a little wobbly and didn’t have much appetite. I’ve gotten past that in typical basset fashion and I now love food! In fact, I’ve gained ten pounds! My foster mom is keeping an eye on me and I’m learning all about “portion control”. Boo!
Now that I am feeling better, I have a lot more energy and spend my time exploring the back yard and “talking” to my family. I definitely have a lot to say! I have learned to use the doggy door and do my business outside. I get along pretty well with my foster brother and sisters, and have been known to snuggle with Lila, the min-pin. She’s a little crazy, but I like her. My foster basset sister, Daisy, is blind and gets a little cranky sometimes. I’m learning to not sneak up on her or bark in her ear, and we are getting along fine now.
When I first met my foster mom and dad, I was really nervous and didn’t understand too much about cuddling. But that changed really quickly. My foster mom says I’ve turned into a real lover boy. I don’t know about that, but I do enjoy a good snuggle and I love when she kisses my head and scratches behind my ears.
I have really good house manners. I don’t jump on the furniture. A big, comfy dog bed at floor level is more my speed. And like any basset hound, I love a good nap! I really love my foster mom and dad, but a forever family would be the best gift ever. If you’re looking for a young-at-heart senior gent who loves people and other dogs, I’d love to meet you and see if you could be my forever family.
And get this: I’m neutered, micro-chipped, up to date on my vaccines AND because of my Hound of the Month status, my adoption fee is 50% off! Please visit my Homeless Hounds page and give BHRSC a call today.
