Greenville Bart (Basset Hound)

Greenville Bart is a 10 year old Basset Hound. We foster Basset Hounds for Carolina Basset Rescue. In December of 2010 we were asked to take in a dog pulled from a dog pound upstate from us. That was when we received Bart. He was skinny, had a skin infection and a thirst that couldn't be satisfied. After we got his hypothyroidism adjusted, it was obvious he was suffering from abandonment issues. He had been beautifully raised and trained. He was grieving for his missing owner. He was in need of a lot of hugs and kisses. We were happy to oblige.


Bart likes to keep us running on schedule, 'his" schedule. He wakes us up at 7 am, goes out for his duty, and then asks for breakfast with his "indoor" voice, a quiet, muffled bark. Then it is time for him to be petted, by everyone that is up, and for a long time. He stretches out and using his indoor bark tries to get someone to pet him for at least an hour.

He knows he is good dog. He will sit directly in front of you and wait for you to notice he isn't being petted. He likes to be a clown. If he can get your attention, he will fool around with toys to get you to play.
