My husband is in the military, and I told him that I didn't want to be alone while he did any kind of field training where he wouldn't be home for weeks. So we decided to go to our local shelter one Saturday afternoon. At first we just wanted to look around, but we found a Basset Hound. The Basset Hound's name was "Busta". We did a little meeting session outside of the kennels. He didn't seem too interested in us but we really wanted to get to know him. We discussed adopting him and we filled out the paperwork. He had only been in the shelter three days. We've had him for half a year and he is such a chill guy. We renamed him Buddy because he is our best friend.
