Bassets Available for Adoption

**Please note:   Many of our bassets do not make it to our web site.   If we have an approved adoptive family who we feel would be a good match, we contact these families first.   If you are interested in adoption, be sure to complete our adoption application which can be found at this link, to be approved for our waiting list.




Mr. Beans is a 5/6 year old tri colored male. He is up to date with all his vacs and is neutered. Beansy is a hefty 65 lbs and is losing weight gradually. Those are the facts.

Now about Beans. He is like an onion, there are many layers to Beansy. He is a loving dog, who loves nothing more than being petted or brushed. He has a gentle mouth, and waits his turn for treats. Beans gets along with all dogs, He is totally housetrained and will bark at the door to go out. He has mastered the dog door, but sometimes just likes to see me get up to open the door. Beans drinks out of the toilet and will bark at the bowl to lift the lid so he can reach the water, and unfortunately has taught my other boys how to do it (great). He sleeps in a bed beside my bed, and would gladly get up in my bed if I let him. He is low key for a young dog, and would rather snooze, but does love a good walk. He can be a barker when he wants something. Since he has come here and now trusts us, he runs out to greet anybody who comes to the house.

Now about the other side of Beans. Beans came with a muzzle, which sent up a flag, apparently he had a good family for his first years, but then was passed around multiple times which had a nasty effect on him. I do think he was mistreated somewhere because he has a huge trust issue with people in the beginning, which comes out in an aggressive way, when pushed. It took time for him to trust me and a lot of patience. He does have issues with toys, and is very protective, so my solution is "No Toys". You don't push him, everything has to be on his timeline. I definitely believe no kids, because they could scare him, with bad results. Going to the vets is an adventure, he hates the vets, and always wearing a muzzle is still a handful when being examined. He did have surgery for a cherry eye, and a nose infection, but since that is behind him hopefully we won't have to go to the vets.

Beans is a lovely dog, when he gets past his trust issues. He loves me and in that co-operates with me. He is your typical basset, selective hearing, and a bit stubborn, I think who ever adopts him should have a lot of experience with dogs with fear issues and a lot of patience. I think Beans has great potential, if given a chance.

If you can give Beans the patience, the time, and the gentle love he needs, please complete an adoption application. If you already have an approved application on file, please email and let us know you are interested in Beans.

Morgan is a sweet, loving 10-year-old male basset who is learning to overcome his separation anxiety. He loves to go for walks, meet other dogs and play in the dog park, and has the energy of a dog many years his younger! If you forget to tickle him often enough, he will come up and remind you with a gentle nudge of his nose.

In the past he got in some trouble for causing noise complaints when left home alone--mostly due to his anxiety and dental pain. The BHRO was able to provide him with a much-needed surgery and now he's proven himself to be quiet staying at home alone or with another dog for the day.

Although Morgan would be best suited to a family with someone who stays home during the day or lives in a detached home, his separation anxiety is getting better every day. He just needs a loving home with a family that likes to walk!

If you think you are Morgan's perfect match, please complete an adoption application. If you already have an approved application on file, please email and let us know you are interested in Morgan.

Stay tuned for more bassets coming soon . . .
