Winston, now Samson, is a total love and even though he is so big, he will climb on top of you to give hugs, kisses and to snuggle. We have another Basset (Delilah) who we adopted through TSBHR in 10/2012. She is 11 yrs old now and isn’t thrilled about having a bouncing, bubbly dog invading her space. But they are getting along just fine now and he knows to leave her alone. Everyone adores him. You can’t help but laugh and smile when interacting with him. He gets along fine with other dogs as well. We are huge Basset Hound lovers and couldn’t imagine life without Samson and Delilah.
