Basset Hound / Beagle / Mixed (short coat) : : Female (spayed) : : Senior : : Medium
Freckles is a happy and lovable dog. Her tail never stops wagging and she loves to go for walks! She came to HHBR through a rehoming group. She had been an outside dog who was fed and loved but mainly left to fend for herself. She arrived extremely overweight, heartworm positive, in need of a dental and to be spayed. But nothing could be done until she lost some weight.
Her weight is down; but, she still needs to lose another 8-10 pounds. Her dental has been completed and she lost 10 teeth. Her spay has also been completed. After she lost some weight a mass near one of her mammary glands and a nodule in another mammary gland and an umbilical hernia were discovered. All of those issues have been taken care of. She will need a soft diet for a few weeks until her mouth heals.
She is friendly to dogs and people and loves to be petted. She enjoys spending the morning outside and will find a cool dirt hole to sit in. When in the house, she'll take any dog bed available for her afternoon/evening nap. She is social but she doesn't follow you from room to room nor does she beg for food. She is independent, a quick learner, and so sweet. She is a good watch dog, not too loud but lets you know when someone is around. She would be great with other dogs, big or small. She will stick up for herself if the other dogs are too rough but she would also be a great companion for just humans. She is a good car rider, doesn't really care for the vet or baths but that is not surprising! Freckles would not do well with lots of steps or stairs but she can manage a few. She will have some dietary restrictions due to her weight and lack of previous dental care. Freckles is heartworm positive and will begin treatment when she is recovered from her dental.
She is not exactly a Basset but she is Miss Personality Plus!
