Hello basset friends. My name is Clare, and I am a sweet and shy 8-year old gal looking for a loving forever family and restful retirement home after an eventful (but not always nice) life.
I just arrived here in California from Oklahoma on a mini-Hound Haul, and I am really enjoying life out here! It’s so nice to get to just be a dog and live a happy hound life. Before I was rescued in Oklahoma, I was a “working dog” – well, a puppy mill mama. I am a little shy with people at first, because for a long time people didn’t really care about me. Between you and me, I think they only wanted me around so they could profit from my babies.
I do warm up to people though, once I get to know you and realize you really just want to take care of me and be companions, but I am easily startled. I especially enjoy hanging out on the bed or a couch. I also absolutely love other dogs. I’m much more confident when I have a doggy friend nearby! So if your home already has a dog, I know we will get along great. I’m already house-trained and quick to figure out things like the dog door. I like to explore and can be very ninja-like in my movements! I get a little nervous when people watch me eat and prefer to be alone at mealtime.
I’m a very sweet gal and once I feel secure I have a lot of love and enthusiasm to show you! Call BHRSC today and see for yourself!
Clare is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. She has also had labwork done and a veterinary dental cleaning. Her adoption fee is $350.
