African Family Fosters Dog

We were very touched by this story as we adopted a Basset/Lab mix in February of this year. Never did we imagine we would come across another one with this unique mix of dogs. Ours has the best of the personalities of both dogs and has been an enjoyable addition to our family. We're curious as to how old Grady is?

The vet thinks that Grady is

The vet thinks that Grady is between 1 and 2 years old. We have had Labs for the last 10 years and I grew up with a Basset hound, but I have to say that this really is the best mix -- he has the laid-back, calm demeanor of a Basset but the wonderful outgoing personality of a Lab. He adores kids and other dogs -- one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met!
