    Howie is a 5 to 6 year old hound who was dumped at a woman's house in Conyers. He has completed treatment for heartworm and is currently living the King's life in Johns Creek while steadily working on his "fear" issues with grown men. He does well with "almost-grown" men, as he has a college-aged foster brother (human) who spends lots of time walking him and spoiling him. Howie, known as "Roger" in his foster home, has made significant improvement since coming to his foster home but will need some patience acclimating to men - preferring women and older kids. Roger is a GREAT leash walker and enjoys his fine Designer collar and dog beds (which are his for keeps). Since his mom grew up with the owner of the Tucker Pet Supply and he has his own account there (LOL). Has become protective of his female caregiver (Foster Mom). Roger is a bit skittish and nervous of loud sudden noises. However, he's also VERY snuggly, loves to be rubbed on his shoulders and we find him so sweet. He only seems to have an "accident" if he is startled by something or confused or fearful.

    Jack is a tri-colored boy who found himself homeless when his missionary family moved overseas. He is around 7 years old. He generally likes other dogs but not those who are bigger than him. Jack does fine in a car and pulls a bit on a leash, but he likes to be wherever his people are and he likes to sleep in bed. He gets along fine with older kids but can be toy possessive, so no small children. He is interested in cats - barks but only chases those who run. Jack is an all-around good boy and wants to be part of a forever family!

    Lloyd is a 10-year old tri-color male who is mostly deaf as a result of an ear ablation. While he may not be able to hear, that doesn't stop him from singing the song of his people at dinner time. This easy-going guy loves to eat and nap. He's a sweet boy who loves attention and playing with other dogs. Except for the gray on his face, you would not expect him to be a senior as he still has a lot of spark in his personality. Lloyd loves to be petted and enjoys playing with toys. He does well on walks and enjoys lying in the sun on a warm day. Please consider a senior as you won't regret it. Lloyd has a lot of love to give and is the perfect gentleman.

    Marcus a.k.a. "Max" says, "Hi! My name is Magnificent Max... I am 14 years old and loving life... I was adopted by a nice family from BHRG in 2006 but they were having some tough times and asked if they could bring me back so I would find a great new family! Could that be you? Currently taking applications for new humans!"

    Max is an amazing hound who only wants/needs to have a warm bed, yummy food and full water bowl. He is house trained with a doggie door and has not had any accidents in my home (***). Neutered, up to date on all shots and on preventatives. He even just had his dental exam. Since he walked into my house, he has been both a joy and a pleasure as well as a complete snuggly boy who would love nothing more than to lay by your side on the couch and have his belly rubbed. He is great with his sister and brother hounds and hasn't shown any aggression with anything. He is very submissive and steps back if an alpha shows his colors. I do not know if he has any experience with cats as I do not have any in my home. Children, no problem! What an amazing companion he would make for a retired couple! Max is good with all situations; he just wants to be loved!

    Even though Max is 14, he shows no signs of slowing down. He gets very excited for treats and will dance for you. While he is eager to get his treat, he takes it gently. Of course, he is a wee bit wobbly when he gets up from naps and his hips need to warm up. I wouldn't recommend lots of steps for this happy hound as he is a senior but has no trouble getting up on the couch with his stairs as long as there is a possibility of a belly rub. He has no food restrictions and likes everything I feed him. Grain Free is what we serve and he is a happy camper! Max does drink a lot of water but there aren't any underlying issues associated with that... he just likes to drink water!

    Storms and Fear... ***one very special thing about Max is he is terrified of Thunder/Lightning/Rain Storms/Fireworks. He has a fear that I have never experienced in a hound and needs more than just a little kindness and care... I watch the weather every morning and night to see if we will have rain, etc. Sometimes with a loud thunder clap, he pees right where he is sitting and then hangs his head as if to say, "I'm sorry". He is truly a humble hound. He gets a very specific med for his fear so he can relax and lay down next to you. It is very hard to watch him go thru this until his meds kick in but I hold him tight and reassure him. The fear is very real to him and he needs a family that will understand his special needs! Please let us know if you are interested! He's Magnificent!!!!!

    Norton is a good-sized open tri-color boy with a lot of freckles. This 8-ish year-old fellow came to BHRG from the shelter in Barrow county where he was found as a stray. He has had all his shots and is neutered. He was positive for heartworms and has finished his treatment. He is so sweet, he loves to cuddle and will sit with you and on you for hours. If you are standing up he will come in front of you and flop over and whine for a good belly rub. He also loves to "give you five" as he throws up his one paw for you to touch it. He is a real talker and that is one things so special about him. He gets along wonderfully with the other three bassets in the foster home and also the blind poodle and Boston Terrier He is also good around the kitty of the house. However, Norton needs a home without small children. He walks very well on a leash and one of his favorite things to do is take a car ride. He is social to all he meets along the way if you take him to the local pet store or to the vet. If you come up on him too fast or speak loud he might be afraid. Due to his fear issues when he is being examined by the vet it is best for him to wear their muzzle. He is housetrained and will cry at the door to go out. He is a wonderful boy and very playful. He is submissive to other dogs. His family only has one female basset and he gets along well with both the two boys and the one girl. To understand the breed is so important when it comes to Norton, he is pure basset. He has never torn up anything in his foster home and is a gentleman when it comes to his food. He dances for his food - so cute. He needs a strong family that will help him remember the things he has learned at his foster home. Norton has some issues with certain things and his foster mom can explain all this better if you ever want to call her or come visit Norton. He has a hard time if anyone stands over him or gets into his face unless he knows you very well. He also has a hard time with anyone that speaks stern to him or uses a voice that makes him afraid. His foster mom feels that sometime in his life someone has been mean to him and so due to his fear of certain situations he is taking medication that he needs to take for the rest of his life. Once he goes to sleep it is better to not bother him, or if you must wake him to do it in a very gentle way. He needs a family that will understand his fear issues and be able to accept him for the wonderful basset boy he is. Watch my video!
