Featured Rescue - Molly the Basset Hound

Basset Hounds are scent hounds. Scent hounds are bred to hunt by using their nose to track prey. When I looked up the Basset Hound and found the following description on Wikipedia I laughed:

"The Basset Hound is seen an especially friendly breed. For this reason they are an excellent pet for children. Bassets "forget" the training when a reward is not present. Bassets should be on a leash when out on walks."

Today there are 2,178 Basset Hounds available on Petfinder. The one I chose to feature is named Molly. She is 5 y/o SF. I had to laugh at the parallels between the rescue's description of Molly and the above Wiki quote.

I like the "forget the training" bit.
