Blondine

A Female Basset Hound presently Adopted

There is a saying, “Luck always seems like it belongs to someone else.”  Blondine here and I’m back.  Yup, I was just too bossy with the resident dog and that was not gonna work.  There’s another saying that goes “Third time’s a charm!” and Animatch has promised that they will do their utmost to get it right the third time!  All this moving around is hard on a gal like me.   Bossy pants here has a few requirements.  First and foremost, I must be the only dog.  Meeting other dogs on a walk or interacting with them from time to time is not a problem.  But, my possessive nature with food (and sometimes toys) and my bossy nature, means that I will do so much better if I am your one and only.  Secondly – no ifs, ands, or buts about this one – whoever adopts me must agree to take three in-home training session with Josh Taylor (Canine Education) during my first week with my new family.  By doing this, Josh, myself, and my new guardian can all work on the behaviors that seem to be a problem.  I am a super dog but I just have not yet found the right fit for me and my personality.  I know that when Animatch finds the right “match” it will be one made in heaven.

 

 

Arrooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!  Blondine here and I'm back.  The family who adopted me were having problems with allergies/asmtha.  Remember, people Bassets shed, not to mention snore, drool, and sing! 

 

Blondine here and if you adopt me I just know that with my distinctive good looks and awesome personality, we will have lots of admirers.  I understand what having my own home is all about and I am anxious to find another.  My human could no longer care for me due to health reasons.  We bassets tend to walk with our nose to the ground and my powerful nose is always on alert.  When I find an interesting scent, I have tunnel vision and might totally ignore your calls.  That is why I need a Basset-proof fence and to be walked on leash.  I love to eat – show me a Basset that doesn’t!  Anyhow, now I have to lose a pound or two, so not too many treats and absolutely no counter surfing.  I get along nicely with other dogs but my main focus will be my human; in fact, I can be a little needy.   I would do well in a home where I am not alone the entire day.  If you have ever heard a Basset howl, you know that we don’t belong in apartments or condos.  Obedience training might put the finishing touches on a close to perfect dog.  Don’t let our reputation of being stubborn scare you; I prefer to think of myself as an independent thinker.  If you adopt me, I can promise an exuberant, happy attitude as we get to know each other.   No doubt, you will find me totally irresistible.  There is nothing more adorable than my soulful brown eyes, soft velvety ears, and a wiggle butt that just doesn’t quit. I’m ready to be your greatest friend and warm up your home with love and joy.  So, fill in the Adoption Form and let ‘em know you like what you see.  I can think of no place that I’d rather be than with you.
