Looking for a home fit for a Duchess
Duchess was a very sweet old girl, full of character and personality who everyone loved, especially China. Basset Hounds were born to use their nose and always look for new scents. Duchess is the perfect example of the breed with a sassy twist. You couldn’t tell Duchess what to do, she enjoyed taking her time on walks and once she stopped for a sniff, you were there for a while. “You don’t own a Basset Hound, they own you,” China says.
An older lady, Duchess longed for a blissful retirement where she could be the centre of someone’s world. She needed owners with lots of patience who could match her relaxed pace of life and potter around with her.
Duchess made her royal appearance on The Dog House where she first met retiree and successful businesswoman, June, in the meeting pen. June was looking for a loyal companion to do everything with her, but she thought Duchess was too big to be the lapdog she was looking for.
