Find-a-Home Friday: Tallulah

Today's featured adoptable pet is Tallulah.

Tallulah is a beautiful purebred female Basset Hound. Don't believe anyone who says you can't find purebred dogs through a shelter or rescue! Approximately 25% of the dogs who end up in shelters are purebred.

Tallulah is about three years old and weighs about 50 pounds. She's good with kids and other dogs, but she needs a home without cats.

Tallulah is available for adoption through Tails of Hope. Her petfinder profile can be viewed here, and her Tails of Hope page (including many more photos) can be viewed here. Could Tallulah be the perfect pup for you? She can't wait to find her forever family!


  1. She could be a Hush Puppy model!

    While I realize all dogs are individuals, I must say that every Basset I have adoption coordinated for has been an excellent family pet, which is scientific in its roots!

    There is research that was just presented to me by Balton's doggie professor about "fine-boned" doggies like him and the Sheltie, for example, and how they are more environmentally sensitive than "sturdy" dogs like the basset. I'm still trying to find the studies about it, but it certainly makes sense as to why Bassets do great with kids as a general rule!

    1. That's so interesting! I would love to see those studies, if you find them. I adore Bassets. There's one who's a regular at the dog park where I take Lily and he is the sweetest, funniest dog. Plays wonderfully with all the other dogs, big and small, and as soon as you reach down to pet him he flops over on his back for a tummy rub. I definitely have a special place in my heart for scent hounds ;)
