Buddy is a 5 year old blue tricolor bassett hound. He was brought to us because his owner became ill. He was being kept in a garage with an outdoor run attached with his owners other dogs before being brought here, and so has lost a lot of his housetraining skills. His new owners should start from the beginning with him and treat him like a puppy by keeping him on a schedule. He is a nice, mellow guy. He is great with other dogs but will let them walk all over him. He is reported to chase cats. He is a typical hound as far as his melodious singing goes, and is not a good choice for an apartment. Buddy is a bit on the hefty side and is currently on a diet. When outside, Buddy must be kept on leash or in a fenced area as he exhibits nose-to-the-ground behavior. He has never lived with kids before, so should live with older kids at this point.
