After my main christmas present fell through my hubby asked me if I really wanted a puppy for christmas....OF COURSE I DO!!! So now we are going to go look at some basset hound puppies!!!!!!!!
My question is this: What do you guys thing? Too soon for another dog. Ivan will be 10 months on the 17th. I am not worried about the dogs getting along. Ivan is the friendlest dog alive, and I know he would love a puppy friend, but would 2 dogs be too much for a 2 bedroom apartment?

They are adorable, my neighbor has a Bassett and he was the sweetest, most adorable puppy. When he was a puppy, his ears would drag in the snow because they were so long but he was still so short! I don't know how big your place is, but if you really want the dog then go for it. They don't get huge, and if your other dog is a smaller breed then they won't take up that much room. Let us know what you decide.
Well, I have a friend that lives in a 1 bedroom apartment with his girlfriend and they have a 2-yo, 110lb great dane AND a 4-mo, 50lb mastiff puppy. I think if they are going to be able to handle 250or so pounds of dog, I have confidence you can handle a basset hound and another dog. What kind of dog is it that you already have?? I don't know......everyone's different, I guess. It's your decision.
They are soo cute! I like the last ones color. I dont think it would be to early to get another puppy but of course I have three puppies that are only 5,7 and almost 8 months old and they are defiently a handfull!
aww, they're so cute! i dont think it's to early to get another puppy, as long as you feel you can handel them. as for the two bedroom appartment.....what other breed of dog do you have? i think that as long as you excerise them, it'll be fine.
My neighbor got one around 1992 when the Clinton election was starting and she naed his "Ross" after Ross Perot, ha! He's like 12 now. He is so cool and his bark cracks me up. He's slowing down though, it's sad. :/
my other dog is a french bulldog, so he won't get much bigger than 30 lbs or so. I told my sister about us wanting another dog and she thinks we should wait until we are in a bigger place. She said it just wouldn't be fair to the dog.
No i don't think it's too small. Ace (chi) and Summer (pug/beagle) live in a 3 bedroom apartment just fine. The only problem is that Summer likes a lot of outdoor exercise, so I'm always running outside with her! lol. I guess that's not really a problem. Anyways, congrats!!!! I hope you get a new pup! =-)
In all of my questioning the breeder I totally forgot to ask one of the most important questions that would totally stop me from getting a puppy from these people....If the puppies have had any of their shots!!! I need help thinking of questions to ask. Suggestions please. I just emailed her about the shots. I am quite sure that these puppies won't come with any health guarantee. They are being sold dirt cheap because this was a breeding that they weren't planning on and (i think its the mother) is not registered. I also would love suggestions on what qualities to look for in a basset hound puppy. The last thing I want is to end up with a sick or bad tempered puppy. No worries, I will also make sure to check out the parents and not just the puppies.
Thats great news Jessica! I'm sorry I missed your IM, I was doing something else. I'm sure you can accomadate two dogs if the apartment allows to do so. how much do bassets weigh at maturity? good lcuk , btw is the dog in your msn thing a basset puppy, is it the one you're going to get?
I think that you should get a basset puppy! I like the one that you like also. It looks a lot like what Gretchen did when I got her. Bassets are just so sweet and I think absolutly adorable. Lucky you! Gretchen also loves other dogs and I don't think your apartment would be to small at all.
