Frankie is a 7 year old Bagel, Basset-Beagle, in good health weighing 63 lbs. He has fit in extremely well with his energetic foster family that includes two teenagers and two other dogs, large and small that he enjoys. He will get cross with small dogs if there is any provoking by them. Before his arrival it was advised that he not be in a family with small children and that he had never lived with other dogs. We believe the concern with small children would be over food. Frankie has a history of being at a heavier weight than normal but shows no excessive appetite or food obsession. He has been steadily and easily losing his extra weight since being fostered, with regular meals, walks and playtime. He likes toys a lot!
Frankie knows basic obedience well and stays out of the kitchen when asked to. He walks well on a leash and shouldn’t be around cats. He is perfectly house trained, doesn’t have a hound smell or drool.

•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!!
