I finally got my adopted doggie today. Man its been a long process. I wanted to rescue a dog instead of going to a breeder or dog store. Not that I have anything agianst those places, unless the breeder is a bad one. My wife was really the one that brought up getting me a rescue dog for Christmas and I was happy to get one. We have been working with this Basset Hound rescue since the beginning of Dec. Its have taken us 4 weeks to get a dog. the process they require before getting a dog from them is long. But it was worth the wait. I finally have my baby Annabelle. She is basset hound(mix), I say mix cause her legs are to long and she is a little small(35lbs but will be 40-45 once I get her weight back up). she is around 2 they think, she was rescue from a bad puppy mill. She is the sweetest dog I have ever known. She is a pure lap dog and wants nothing but love. She gots some big feet.
