Sage made her way to HHDR from Alabama in October 2016, via our rescue partner Save A Stray. Many were charmed by Sage’s spunky personality and adorable combination of Beagle and Bassett Hound features, and she was quickly adopted. Soon, however, Sage found herself back at HHDR due to being naughty – she was a bit of an escape artist who could not be contained by a crate, and she did not hesitate to help herself to food from the table and the trashcan. Sage needed an active family who would take her on frequent walks and hikes to burn off her energy and keep her out of trouble.
After a couple months at HHDR, Sage wrote a letter to Santa expressing her deepest wish for a forever family. Sage was adopted in January 2017, joining her new Mom, Dad, and Bassett Hound sister Gracie! We are happy to share a pupdate about this cute low-rider. Sage took to her new family right away. She loves her sister Gracie, who seemed to help her settle down and behave. They especially enjoy playing in the snow in their large backyard. They attend doggie daycare regularly, where they hang out with many other Bassett Hound friends. They also enjoy hikes in the Adirondacks with Mom and Dad. Sage’s family returned to HHDR in December 2017 to adopt their third pup, Janie. While not a Bassett Hound, Janie fit right in with her new sisters as you can see.
We appreciate your support in helping dogs like Sage find a “new leash on life!
