Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
UPDATE FROM THE FOSTER:
I am fostering Leonard and what a pleasure it is.I call him my little Zipper.He zips around and has his nose in everything.He loves the snow and he and his buddy Sasha are full of it when they come in.No matter how many times I clean the kitchen and put beds back in the crates,he is there to take them out.He drags his blankets everywhere.He loves to put them in a bunch,get on top and lay there and teethe on the blanket.He then eventually will fall asleep.
He started out a little fearful of people but with the exposure he has gotten,he is now the welcomer to everyone.He is such a love-bug and I really love this little guy
ORIGINAL BIO: ADOPTED ON 02-02-20
Four beautiful puppies dumped on a back road by careless humans. Just another sad story heard all too often. Luckily, the ending is often happy; a big-hearted person drives by, sees the box of puppies, and brings them to a shelter, where they can wait for their forever homes to adopt them.
This is the case for Leonard and his three siblings. Just born in July, someone thought it was a good idea to drop them off on a back road to fend for themselves. Too often, these people think this is the “best thing”, that someone will pick them up or they will survive on their own. This is just not the case. They are exposed to the weather, wild animals, and they just do not know how to take care of themselves. Leonard and his siblings are Basset Hound mixes, but one thing is for sure: the level of cuteness is unbelievable!
Sister Penny and brother Shelton all love hanging out together when they are put out to play-although lucky brother Rahj is adopted and in his forever home. Leonard is a little more independent and energetic. His motto is “Let’s PLAY” when he’s let out of his kennel. The one thing that everyone says about him is that he is a lover and you can be sure that when someone stops to give him a cuddle, hug or sweet talk, he is almost motionless, taking in all that you have to offer; he will stay until you move away—he is a true companion.
This sweet guy is only 10 pounds so far, but he is a bundle of fun. With his gorgeous coloring and puppy dog eyes, he is sure to steal away the hearts of anyone who meets her. He’s a healthy, happy puppy so really all there is to say about Leonard is that he enjoys playing, playing, and more playing. He loves tumbling around with his brothers and playing with their toys. All that is missing is a family to call her own. Take a look at Leonard, and consider welcoming him into your home, and giving him the warm, loving home he deserves. He is coming to CT on December 28th.
The Basset Hound fits perfectly into family life with its sweet, peaceful and gentle nature. These dogs are well behaved and always friendly. They are not aggressive to people and other animals. They will happily welcome your guests with a tail wag.
If you’re looking for an easy dog to groom, then they may be right for you. They make a good family dogs since Basset Hounds are friendly with all even intruders. Nothing is as better as curling up with your Basset Hound at the end of the day.
Note: Our puppies are kept in a sterile environment
until they have all three of their DHLPP’s vaccinations
