ADPTION DATE 05-13-22: So often it is necessary for us to write biographies on puppies that have had a rough start in life through no fault of their own. Or worse yet, adult dogs that have lived through horrible abuse and neglect that were lucky enough to be saved by our rescuers. But every once in a great while we get to write stories of pups that were rescued BEFORE they experienced anything other than love.  Hershey and her siblings are some of the lucky ones! This little girl will steal your heart before you even meet her with her sweet face, adorable, little legs, luscious chocolate coat (hence her name!) and her huge personality!

Hershey is a Chocolate Flat Coat Retriever/Bassett Hound mix, who, along with her brothers and sisters, were unwanted puppies.  Luck was on their side, however, because the owner of the mama dog did not just abandon them in a box on a back road which, sadly, so very often happens. And though we appreciate it so much that he chose not to do that, he did plan to give them away in a post on Facebook. What he did not know was that the fate of “free puppies” is statistically not a good one. They are too often neglected, abused, or brought back to shelters when the novelty wears off. This young man just happened to be talking to one of our rescue angels (who is also his hair dresser!) about his plan to give them away when she pleaded with him to give them to her to find them good homes. And just like that, we now have these gorgeous babies who need loving homes!

The name Nash is a good dog name for a dog because traits associated with the name tend to be industrious, loyal, and lovable—which he is described as by his foster mom as “a lover”. Nash is a one-syllable dog name, making it short and snappy and is what’s more it is associated with intelligence and companionship.

Although the name Nash isn’t one of the most common names, so your dog will certainly stand out. The name also suggests that the dog will give up what he wants so other people can have what they need. I guess the adopter can see if that is true, however, if you love the name, you should stay with it!

Built more for endurance than speed, the Basset moves in a deliberate but effortless manner.

The Chocolate Flat Coat Retriever adds cheerfulness and good-humor to the mix. The Peter Pan of the Sporting Group, the forever-young Flat-Coated Retriever is a gundog of relatively recent origin. Happy, self-assured, and willing to please, a good Flat-Coat will retrieve a duck or a show ribbon with equal enthusiasm. The Flat-Coated Retriever’s flat-lying coat comes in lustrous black or liver, with feathering at the legs and tail. A distinctive breed hallmark is the long head unique among retrievers which projects a smart and kindly expression. A Flat-Coat will stand as tall as a Labrador Retriever, but in silhouette they present a leaner, more elegant look. Dogdom’s champion tail-waggers.

Flat-Coats are among the happiest of all breeds. They mature slowly; some owners say that they never grow up at all, retaining a puppyish taste for rambunctious mischief into old age. This can be either delightful or exasperating, depending on your tolerance for such monkeyshines. This highly energetic breed requires lots of outdoorsy exercise.
