4-5 years Red and white Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. Whether you listen to legendary pianist, Thelonious Sphere Monk, or remember Lord Farquaad’s henchman-turned-good-guy, Thelonius, in the movie Shrek, there is one thing you must admit. Their name is uniquely obscure. Our Thelonius is a charming fellow whose name befits his rare breed. He is a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (PBGV) mix and embodies what is wonderful about the breed. A 35-pound scent hound, he is extroverted and friendly with people he knows well. His eyes reveal his intelligence and wit, but also the fear he carries from his shelter experience. Whether he was named after a famous musician or a henchman-turned-friend, Thelonius has been seen - and heard - following in the footsteps of both. When in a calm, predictable environment, he will sing along with you to your favorite tunes while cuddling with you as only a furiend can. So come and meet this special fellow. Thelonius is neutered, microchipped, current on all vaccines, and can’t wait to rediscover his joie de vivre with you!
