Lost or found date:
Pet name:
9 year Dorothy and her mom Sophie (12) found themselves in the care of Huntsville Alabama Animal Services in May of 2020. Both girls were in great need of dental care and suffered from different eye diseases that were left untreated. After almost a year in foster care, Sophie was recently adopted out. Dorothy remains in foster. Dorothy suffered from glaucoma. It was managed daily with many expensive eye meds as long as possible. Last month Dorothy began to have pain from her eyes and her eyes had to be removed. She is doing very well and since she was already blind, removing her eyes has not caused her to skip a beat. Dorothy does best as an only dog and she is very bonded with her foster mom. She suffers from some anxiety when her foster mom leaves her but is otherwise doing well and waiting for that special adopter to come along.  Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued Basset Hound!  We ask all potential adopters to complete our application and approval process first so we can discuss the dogs that fit your home.  We usually have 25 - 35 dogs available and the ages range from less than year old to ten plus years old.  Once we receive your application you'll be contacted by an adoption representative to complete the application process.  We look forward to speaking with you about our wonderful hounds waiting for forever homes!!!

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
