Atticus was the second of CHBR foster Hope’s puppies and suddenly size mattered! He is by far the largest and has distinct black spots on a beautiful white coat. Atticus is a wonderful boy that loves his siblings and is very comfortable in his surroundings. His sheer size makes it easy to take his welfare for granted, but he lets his needs known and will be a wonderful boy. He has started to develop tricolor markings on his face, long floppy ears and under his tail. He loves to be cuddled and have his silky coat stroked.

As an adopter, it’s important to know about mama, Hope, too She’s an absolutely strikingly beautiful dog with the most remarkable personality and loving nature. Her vet calls her super woman, given her ability to deliver 7 gorgeous healthy puppies and nurture them so lovingly and confidently among people considering the environment she was rescued from. She’s a basset mix; her feet and howl are definitively basset. But her eyes and face appear to come from a springer spaniel. She’s about 35 pounds, and short/compact for a basset mix.

Hope’s pups and their mom are living with 3 “house dogs” – a beagle mix, cocker mix, and chihuahua mix. They are being introduced to people daily and hopefully given the best opportunity to be ready for your loving care and training to help them become wonderful dogs. They are loved to the moon and back and will be missed so much when it’s time for them to graduate to their forever homes.
