Being fostered in Illinois.
Hi I’m Buddy, or Dudley… depends who you ask! I was rescued from an abandoned house, so I’m looking for my forever home now. I did live with a cat for a short time after I was rescued, so I should be fine with a feline in the house, but I do prefer to be the only dog around.

Describe the dog’s reaction to children: Dudley has not had exposure to children here; however, prior to coming to BBR Dudley was living with at least two children under 10 yrs of age.

Has allergies? No
Type of family life? Doesn’t care|
Comments about family life: Dudley is a young Basset who has energy to play and run but he very much likes his “chair” time as well.
List anything the dog is afraid of : Dudley appears to be afraid of being scolded, he shakes and cowers at the slightest raise of your voice but I think he is starting to understand that a correction does not mean he will be harmed.
Tell us about your foster basset: Dudley is a very sweet boy! He loves to be petted gently and will even give an occasional kiss. He likes his outside/yard time and gets very excited by new sounds and smells and will “bay” to let you know. He also likes to play with toys but mostly just likes a nice, comfy dog bed, blanket, or chair to curl up in when inside. He will make an excellent companion for a gentle, loving home!
