We haven't posted on here for a while, but we are always lurking. We have a question for the group. We currently have our two wonderful ladies. Ellie is 2 and Clara turns 1 on Nov. 28. Ellie was fixed when we adopted her (She was our rescue from the pound.) Clara is currently in heat. We have an appointment setup for her on the first week of December to get fixed. They have been such a hoot. When we adopted Ellie, she was very quite and loved to cuddle. She was perfect. When we adopted Clara, well, that was another story. She is loud and can be obnoxious, but we love her to pieces. Ellie had never howled until we got Clara. It is really something when they both get going (of course we help them along with that. :rolleyes: ) Getting to the question, we had some friends approach us who have a 4 1/2 month old basset male. He is current on all his shots, but they are looking to get rid of him. They have two other non basset dogs and really don't treat him like a basset should. They are asking us if we would like to take him. Being the basset lovers that we are, we are having a hard time saying no. We know that we wouldn't even try to bring him in until Clara is out of heat. Are there any thoughts as to whether we should wait until after Clara is fixed if we do decide to take him? We are struggling over the decision because they talked about taking him to the pound and we know how difficult it can be if you don't know much about bassets. We don't want to see him end up in a bad situation.

Thanks to everyone for the advice. We have decided to take him. We are going to wait until Clara is completely out of heat. We think she is in the last week of it now. As soon as we get him, we will post some pictures of him.
