Hey, Kramer here! I'm a 39-pound basset mix. I'm a Black dot, which means that I'm probably not aware of my strength. In fact, I might pull a little too hard on the leash if I smell something interesting, but I'm part hound dog after all! Most Black dot dogs like me are very active and tend to have little to no obedience training yet. I'm usually interested in other dogs, but I might be too playful for some. I'm much more likely to thrive in a single-family home as opposed to an apartment or condo. I can be a bit nervous at first but give me a little time and I warm right up. If your household has kids under the age of 14, a Black dot dog like me is probably not the right fit, because I need a safe place to learn my manners. Also, I must confess I'm not a fan of being hugged. I'm ready to live my best life so come in and meet me today!
