I have three bassets. They are constant shedders, which means they lose a little fur all the time. Edith Ann just went through a major shedding, though, and every time we ran our hands down her back, we came up with tons of hair. Couldn't keep the area rug in the family room clean either. But it only lasts about a week, which isn't bad.

As far as odor, I clean ears and arm pits once a week. I use a damp wash cloth on the ears, and I have a little bottle of Peroxide I use on armpits. Spritz it on, rub it in, wipe down. The odor isn't bad at all. In fact, we had company this weekend, people who don't have dogs, and they were amazed that my dogs had no odor. I took it as a compliment.

Good for you, taking in an 'older' dog. My Eloise came to me at ten months, and while we've had some young dog issues, it hasn't been anything like the eight-week-old puppy stuff we would have had.......
