Hi, I recently adopted Jess after seeing a add on a online classified. We went to have a look and when the woman asked me AND? there was just no way that I could say no. She was living in a yard of about 2m x 3m, which she shared with a poodle. It was paved and not cleaned recently. There was no shelter. I just could not leave her in those conditions. She came home with us and just fitted right in. Though she was severely overweight, we are managing to bring it down by 2 daily walks. She is my shadow. After adopting her I saw 2 more adds popup on that same site, with in 2 weeks, in the same city fully grown bassets for free. Wish I could take them all, but I have 2 other dogs as well, which got me thinking, I need to help these doggies. So I want to start a website creating awareness for the sake of bassets. I want people to know the truth. WE all love our bassets, but most people getting a very adorable cute puppy does not realize that they grow up to be rather large, needs exercise and are quite stubborn. Thus they end up as free to good home on online classifieds. What would you like to see on a site like that. The positive fact, but also the negatives? only the negatives? Please let me have our input and try to help prevent so many "free to good home" bassets. I also want to do this for all the breeds that tends to end up at shelters, huskies, labs. What do you think?
