Get to know him: Dr. Sany Fuss is an 8- or 9-year-old, 54-pound basset hound available for adoption through Carolina Basset Hound Rescue. He got his name, which rhymes with Dr. Seuss and means foot in German, for his large paws. Dr. Fuss is a bigger boned basset, but not fat, and he still loves to hike for a few miles, jump around for his meals and gallop through the house after his foster brothers. He has perfect house manners, is fully housebroken and has never met a stranger, neither dog nor human. Dr. Fuss is very affectionate and has the basset nudge perfected, but he does know when enough is enough and will go lie down after some scratching.
For more information: CBHR is a volunteer-staffed, nonprofit organization that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes unwanted basset hounds in North Carolina and South Carolina. To see more than 50 bassets available through the group or to fill out an adoption application, go to www.cbhr.com. Adoption fees range from $100 to $250 to help offset costs. Because of the high numbers of dogs in need of rescue from kill shelters, CBHR is unable to accept owner turned in dogs at this time.
