Seized basset hound puppies need new homes (PA, WV, VA area)

Nearly two dozen dogs seized from a Franklin County home last week are almost ready to be adopted.

Last Friday humane officers pulled 23 basset hounds from a home in Fayetteville.

The owners, David and Peri Flory, surrendered the dogs and face nearly 50 counts of sanitation charges.

Humane officers said the dogs, including 13 puppies, were living in 20 inches of filth.

They are now being temporarily housed at the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter in Chambersburg.

“It’s like humans. If you suddenly picked up and moved from your house and ended up in a cage somewhere, you’d be like ‘what is going on?’ said shelter spokesperson Jennifer Vanderau. “But for the most part they seem to be tail-wagging, kissing and they really do seem to be sweet babies.”

The puppies will be available for adoption starting on Saturday. The older dogs will stay at the shelter a bit longer before they are put up for adoption. For more information, contact CVAS at (717) 263-5791.

    I have been looking for a basset hound puppy for a while now. I used to have them when I was younger and they are great dogs. I had a treeing feist who I lost about 2 years ago and haven’t been able to bring myself to get another dog, but now I am ready. I would love a puppy so it will grow up with me as I grow older. I am 46 and am interested in one of the puppies you rescued. I live in Salem, WV and do not like to travel, so I hope you are not to far away. I does not matter the sex of the puppy for I am going to get it fixed. Please contact me at the above email address. Thank you so much.

    The puppies are adopted. Would you consider adopting a younger, but mature dog? There are so many dogs in need and I can direct you to the right rescue.

  • Vicki Clower:

    We recently had to put our old basset down due to bond cancer. Our younger basset has grieved terribly for him. I am interested in an older basset that needs a good home.

    Where do you live? You may contact the rescue of your area. They’ll be glad to find you the right match.
