Get ready to fall in love with Maury, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from Maury is an adult male Basset Hound from Albuquerque, NM. He is neutered, microchipped, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Maury’s Story:

Maury is a 6-year-old male Basset Hound with a very easy-going personality. Maury and his brother, a West Highland Terrier, were surrendered to a local shelter by lifetime owners who decided they didn’t want the responsibility of having dogs anymore. Depressed because his people abandoned him, Maury didn’t adapt well to the shelter environment. Could you be the right family to provide Maury a loving home where he will never be abandoned again?

Maury is housetrained and would make an excellent companion for a first time dog owner or experienced owner. Maury gets along well with other dogs, but would also be fine receiving all of the attention in a one-dog household. At the onset of meeting new people, Maury will initially duck when you try to pet the top of his head, however, this behavior disappears once he feels comfortable in a new environment, so we do not believe that Maury suffered any abuse, outside of having been abandoned by people that he knew and trusted.
