Birdie was adopted from a home that said he was full Bassett and he gained 7 pounds each puppy check up. We soon realized he was not just a Bassett. He has longer legs and shorter ears. We just see cute and lovable. He visits his Grandma at the nursing home and we were told that he looked like he was wearing eyeliner. He is full of energy, big and strong and strong but scared of the sounds of the trash truck. He is 2 years old and he grooms his Basset brother who he is growing up with. He could not have a better personality. He is a definite sweetheart. Always ready to present you with a toy or a kiss.
