Our Rescued Basset Hounds
Josh and Lucy Beth - the gentle ones

These are our two dogs who have lived here the longest.  Josh is now 9 and Lucy Beth is now 8...  Both estimated to be about 2 years old when they came from Polk County Animal Services, they started here as pups and grew up together.

This was taken a few years back...

When Josh came from animal services, it took
2 months of treatment to get him cured of
pneumonia before he could start the heartworm treatments.  I had to sign a paper that said I
would get him treated for heartworms within a
month.  I was sure they were going to take me
to jail before he got well... 
 
Josh is the most alert and attentive of all our
dogs.  He stands guard while the others sleep.

The most alert one in our pack

Our little sweetie pie - Lucy Beth

Lucy was the smallest of our original pack.

When Lucy first came to us, she had a huge liquid filled tumor on one of her ear flaps.  She couldn't hold her head straight because of the tumor.  It was removed before her heartworm treatments started.
 
Lucy Beth had the most gentle disposition of our pack until the young ones arrived.  She can get along with almost any other dog and will be still to let anyone pet her.  That is a good quality in a therapy dog...
 
She is also small enough to be picked up and held... also a good asset.  That has happened many times.  She is a cuddler...
