Attention Northern KY and Cincinnati area residents. Bonded couple needs networking!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Bonded Couple Lovers…I saw this on facebook last night and I had to share in hopes someone might connect with this couple.

They are safe and with a great rescue called Louie’s Legacy.  Link at the bottom of this post.

Sir Atrtemus Dotson “Artie” – 6 yr old Basset Hound -

Sir Atrtemus Dotson "Artie" 6 years old

Artie came in to rescue with Nettie after their owner passed away and despite promising to care for them for the rest of their lives, the deceased man’s mother tried dumping them at the nearest shelter. Ohio Basset Rescue stepped in and two of the three dogs ended up with Louie’s Legacy. Artie is about 70 lbs of big ol’ hound dog. He is extremely friendly and loving with people, including kids and loves attention. He is also generally good with other dogs but has no problem dealing corrections to wild and wily youth. He’d do best with females or possibly submissive males who are adults and calm like him. Artie is housetrained and if at all possible, we’d like to see him placed with Nettie (picture below)  who is so attached to him.

Meet the pair at the Eastgate, (Cincinnati Area) PetSmart 12 – 5 PM on Saturday and 1 – 5 PM Sunday at the Mason PetSmart (Cincinnati Area) unless adopted first.

Now for the darling and delicious Nettie!  Farmgirl Nettie Mae – “Nettie”

9 year old Farmgirl Nettie Mae "Nettie"

9 yr old Basset Hound and Artie came in to rescue with Nettie after their owner passed away and despite promising to care for them for the rest of their lives, the deceased man’s mother tried dumping them at the nearest shelter. Ohio Basset Rescue stepped in and two of the three dogs ended up with Louie’s Legacy. Nettie is a big girl at about 70 lbs. She is happiest when she can follow Artie around and perks up whenever she sees him. She is quite depressed right now and took her owners passing and the changes in her life very, very hard. She is good with all other dogs, men, women and kids, and I can’t see her moving at all quickly after a cat either. Nettie is housetrained and if at all possible, we’d like to see her placed with Artie since she is so attached to him. It is an extra special family who will give a senior dog like Nettie a chance, but the rewards are immense. Nettie’s adoption fee is waived with the help of a caring donor, however you must still meet all adoption requirements to adopt. Meet the pair at the Eastgate PetSmart 12 – 5 PM on Saturday and 1 – 5 PM Sunday at the Mason PetSmart unless adopted first.

    Ahhhh they are so Big and cute. They will find a forever home and hopefully stay together. How can someone give up these babies after her son passed away? I just don’t get it.
