Usually, local animal shelters are overflowing with adoptable animals. After you have made the decision
to adopt, go look for your perfect companion. A dog will fall in love with you as well as become and remain your
friend for life.
By giving him or her a new home away from the constant noise of the shelter, it won't take long for the dog to realize
how much better his chances of living a longer life have become.
By showing your new rescue the love you feel for him or her, he or she will feel much better about his or her new life
with you and will be eager to please you. Not only will you feel good that you have helped save a life, your rescued
pet will not let you forget that he owes his life to you.
Sharing the love of our rescued basset hounds with others is the
ultimate gift we feel we can give. Visiting Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities is our way of sharing
all the basset love at our house. It is hard to know for sure just who enjoys our visits the most... the
dogs, the residents, the activities directors or the two of us... Mom and me.
