Long story short I had planned on getting a basset hound. The owners of the basset had come over, met me, saw my yard and told me they would let me adopt her. I went out and bought basset hound sized stuff. Then they flaked out on me. I did end up rescuing a cocker spaniel from the pound but he was much smaller than the basset obviously so the basset sized crate was too big. I traded it on craigslist for a crate that was 31x19x21. I thought this would be perfect and when I put Zero in it he seemed to have just enough room to stand up, turn around and lie down stretched out. Then he went to sleep and I noticed him curled in just one end of the crate giving him a lot of room if he wanted to eliminate in one end and sleep in the other. Should I consider getting yet a smaller crate? Here's a pic of him standing in the crate.
