Welcome- in answer to your question under the "Basset Hound Smell" post:

Yes, their ears need to be cleaned often. I clean Murray's every week. I use a product called DermaPet which I get from our vet- there are other things you can use. You squirt a small amount of solution into the ear canal, massage the ear canal (which is very deep in this breed), then gently insert a cotton ball or piece of gauze and wipe until all the **** is out.

It's pretty important to maintain their ears in this way, they are prone to yeast infections and can develop bacterial infections if this is not done. If your're not sure how to do this, your vet can show you-

We would love to see pictures of your foster pup! :)
