Helen is a sweet basset mix who loves to lounge in her bed and enjoys receiving attention from her people. She is easy going, loyal and loving, gets along with people and other dogs, and does well on walks and outings. She would prefer being in a home where there are older children and at least one other dog for companionship. Helen is housetrained, spayed, microchipped, has excellent teeth, and is up to date on her vaccinations.
Helen is on meds which successfullly treat the artititis in her knees and ankles. The meds include a supplement, an anti-inflammatory drug and a monthly shot. The only limitation to her exercise is that she does not do well with numerous stairs and she would have a difficult being around young active children.

•NOTE - we do ask for an adoption donation. This is not for the purchase of the basset hound, but a donation towards the cost of caring for all the hounds that come through our Rescue. Some cost more than others, and some hounds stay in foster homes forever, where their medical bills are paid for by GGBR on an ongoing basis. On average a basset hound coming through GGBR costs approximately $700 in medical, spay/neuter, vaccination, heartworm treatment etc. As a donation, this amount can be claimed as a tax deduction, along with other types of donation you make to us and other 501c3 non-profit organizations. Payments made to GGBR for purchase of items via the Online Store are NOT tax deductible. Donations in excess of the above amounts are welcomed!!
