Hello! My name is Bonnie, and I’m about 5 or 6 years old. I’m originally from North Carolina, but I live in Beaufort, South Carolina now. I love the morning sea air in my new home! Every morning my foster daddy gets up and drinks his coffee on the deck, and I get right up there with him to get my morning breath. Taking those deep breaths is easier now that I’m finished with my heart worm treatment, and I can now play all day with my foster brothers and sister if I want to.

My foster daddy says I’m quite a lover and I like to just randomly snuggle. I love to go for walks and I am pretty good on a leash. I’m told I’m a lazy basset cause I seldom just jump right up on anything: I’d rather c..r..a..w..l up and into a chair or couch. I must say I also love to lie on a nice pillow. It doesn’t matter if it’s yours or mine as long as I can lay my head on it. And while we’re on the topic of things I love, I must mention toys. You see I love them so much that I just HAVE to play with them regardless of whether they’re mine or not. I’m sorry to say that I’m not allowed to have toys with stuffing in them because I use them to make the room look like it snowed inside. Sometimes folks just don’t recognize art when they see it. Other loves include doing the basset hound barrel roll on the floor after it’s been vacuumed; the floor has to be perfectly fresh to do it properly. And because I’m a basset, I’m also a big fan of belly rubs.

I’m a fairly quiet girl, but I will let you know if I hear something outside of the norm. My foster daddy and I are working on something he calls a bad habit. I just call it working my core by stretching my abs to get things I need or want off the counter or table. There is something else here called a crate, and while I don’t particularly care for it, I will go in it and be a perfect lady while I’m in there. I know foster daddy is helping me get ready for something else I’d really, really love, and that’s my very own forever family. So if you’re ready for a super loving basset girl, look me up and send in an application. I’d love to keep you company while you drink your coffee! Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s a toy over there that I really must go check on. Bye-bye!
