Well, I am so excited!
My husband and I have been discussing getting a dog from a shelter for some time now and have looked at several. We got both Roscoe and Cole from a breeder and really wanted to help an older dog in need of a forever home.

So, after a few visits, hours on Petfinder, LOTS of deliberating, and searching, we decided on Gino! He is a six year old basset/beagle mix and I fell in love with his face the first time I saw it online. The boys and I went to go meet Gino and his foster mom yesterday and he was even cuter in person! The three of them fell right into line together (after the obligatory butt sniffing), noses to the ground, a cute little pack!
The foster mom told me that they rescued him (and others) from a shelter and he has been in her home for a few months. She has four of her own dogs, and he got along just fine with them and the other rescues. His previous owners left him at the shelter b/c they moved out of the country! Aside from a few minor issues (as to be expected), he was described as an overall great dog! He seemed very sweet and we are very excited.

He won't be coming home until next week because our little Cole is at the vet today, getting neutered, so we want to give him time to heal. Just wanted to share. Below is the picture of Gino that stole my heart, it is the pic they posted on Petfinder.

WOWOWOW!!! He is a cutie


That's awesome that you're taking him in.

It feels to me like since I've started seriously thinking of getting a sister for Chloe, everyone at the forum is expanding their packs... I'll be the last mommy to a single child at the end

Oh my, what a cutie!! How old is he? I have always thought it was a neat thing to take in an older dog and hope to do the same someday when I have a fenced yard!!!!

Congratulations!!

Way to go!!! We got our older beagle, Duce, from a shelter when he was about six or so and he is the best dog ever! As I write this, he is laying at my feet snoring away. He has brought me a lot of joy and I'm sure Gino will bring you the same joy as well!

Congratulations and a big ARRROOOOO from Duce!

Congrats on the new puppy. They are puppies until the day the go over the bridge you know. Chipper was a basset/beagle mix (bagel) for short....he was a wonderful dog, I am sure yours will be too! And what an adorable face and coloring. I love the short little legs, too. He's got a good home to come to!
