Fox Hound • Young • Male • Large
Spottie is a beautiful either Foxhound or Treeing Walker Coonhound. We were told that he is a Coonhound but he really looks more like a Foxhound to me. He is tall and stately, super graceful and gazelle-like. Scottie is heartworm negative, vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. He was given to the shelter by his family because their 3 year old child was alone in a room with Spottie and another dog, a pit mix. The child was bitten by one of the two dogs. The family didn't know which one had bitten the child but decided to give Spottie to the shelter. The shelter couldn't put him up for adoption because of the possibility that he might have bitten a child.... but no one knows which of the two dogs bit the child.
We were willing to take him into rescue in order to give him a chance. He is super sweet and friendly and a complete joy to have around. He would be a great running companion for someone. He is a gorgeous dog.
Our adoption fee is $300 and the fee to transport to Putnam, CT is $185. We check vet references and do home visits prior to an adoption. We require that our dogs be on monthly year round heartworm prevention. Please email LoozianaBassetRescue@gmail.com for more information and for an application.
