Donner & other pictures

We adpoted Sid in late May and changed his name to Carter.
He is a wonderful dog and we are just trhrilled to have him.

Attached is a picture of your long-legged beagle Donner in his new home in San Diego with his best friends Haley and Molly. He has adjusted very well, and still has the sweet, playful disposition that he showed us at your shelter. He especially enjoys his walks twice a day. We have been speculating what he is mixed with. After taking him yesterday to the dog park in Balboa park, and watching him speed around the field like a rocket, we think his dad was a whippet! Thank you for rescuing him from the shelter. We love him very much. The Kovacs Family [Dec. 30, 2001]

Hi- We adopted Cherry back in August, and thought you would like an update and a few new pictures. She has gained a healthy 15 pounds (up from 30 to 45 pounds) and her hair has grown out - she looks a lot different than the skinny little girl you remember! As you can see from the pictures, she has taken up gardening as a hobby! Everyone who meets her declares that she is the happiest dog they have ever met. Thanks again!

How do new dogs and babies get along?

The baby and the dog should never be left alone together.

However, Bassets are the least likely to be dangerous. There are other breeds such as the Labrador, the Golden Retriever, and the Collie that are unlikely to snap at children.

Adopting an older dog that has had experience with children is much better than adopting a puppy or a young dog without experience.

With puppies, teething is part of growing up - and sometimes they don't know the strength of their own jaws. Rather than riskng it, go with an older dog. That way, both parties can have fun & respect without getting into any trouble!!
