Meet Shorty the Entertainer

Apr 26, 2014 08:13AM ● Published by Steven Jack


Meet Shorty, he's a 1-year-old basset hound/rott/lab mix.  Yes, people this can happen. 

Actually short legged dogs such as basset hounds have a extra gene and that's what contributes to their short little legs, so lets be easy on Shorty.  Momma was a basset hound and daddy was a rott/lab mix. 

He's a funny guy that can be entertaining. In the shelter they said he'll do a bear impression.  He gets up on his hind legs and waves his front paws for a treat.  He loves people and other dogs but he does not like cats, so no cats please, chicken or ducks either, that's what got this boy in trouble chasing them at his previous home. 

Shorty weighs about 40 pounds so he's a stocky little low rider but he should not get much bigger he'll just put on weight as he matures, Basset hounds alone can weigh up to 60+ pounds.  

He has a shiny and soft medium length coat.He has been neutered and is up to date on his vaccines.  HIs adoption fee is $200.00 which also includes a microchip with the registration.  If you would like to hear more about Shorty, please call Jody at 708 268-6965.
