The shelter is a no-kill shelter so he's not at risk for being put down. This is the same shelter my Anabelle came from and I know they do a good job in the meantime. Thanks for the help. I'm afraid if I meet him I won't be able to say no and I have a big enough pack as it isI emailed Dallas basset rescue to see if they can take him. If not, we'll find another place for him.
