|Bassets Available for Adoption|
This appealing hound is part angel, part devil. Impish and playful, with dark eyes that gleam and a mouth that grins. In fact, give him a toy, and heíll let it hang casually out of the corner of his mouth Ė before he starts playing with it.
Louie may be 7 years old, but heís still fueled by some unspent puppy energy, which he happily burns off by going for long walks and by running around the backyard chasing a ball. Preferably by himself. Likeable Louie is his own man, so to speak, an independent spirit. He prefers to meander and roam, sniff and explore at his own pace, in his own time. Busy-ness is just not his thing. He does play well with other dogs, however, and thrives in the company of an easygoing human whose temperament matches his own, and whoís always there when itís loving and cuddling time.
What Louie needs and wants is a calm, secure and tranquil environment, where he can continue to meander and roam, sniff and explore at his own pace, in his own time. A home with a yard, preferably with a single, calm and laid-back pet parent to love him, rub his belly, and, naturally, give him that toy.
If you can give Louie that secure, calm and loving environment he will be your best friend. Please contact Basset Rescue if you have an approved adoption application on file or please fill one out if you would like to learn more about him.
He looks as if the top part of his body has been covered in caramel, leaving the rest of him a clean, cool vanilla. With that serious look in his bright, dark eyes, he seems to be thinking very deep thoughts. That would be the Pointer part of this 3-year-old Basset/German Shorthaired Pointer cross. Pointers are extremely focused dogs, and true to form, Leroy looks to his handler -- currently his foster mom -- for all of his guidance and direction.
He lives to please his people, will eagerly follow their lead, and this is what makes him so trainable. He loves going for walks (itís a wonderful way to work off his wonderful energy), loves playing with his toys, and tears around the backyard chasing balls.
A highly sensitive, very affectionate dog, easily influenced by his surroundings, Leroy does his best and is at his best in a stable, calm and comfortable environment. The less exciting and less stimulating the better. Give him security, peace and quiet Ė but donít forget that ball! -- and Leroy will not only grow, he will thrive. With an experienced dog owner with a fixed routine, who knows when to give him his space, there is nothing this young dog cannot and will not do.

Hi my name is Tommy and I am waiting for a family to call my own. Right now, I am in a foster home with 2 other Bassets, a Beagle, and 2 cats. I get along just fine with all of them. I even met a baby and a toddler the other day, and even though they smelled like cookies, I let my foster mom look after them while I watched tv on my doggie bed.
I am a very easy-going fellow, who loves to cuddle, especially right now with it being so cold outside. I also love to play and run, so if I could belong to a family with another dog, I would be really happy.
I am 9 years old, but to me age is just a number to be ignored. I may look 9, but I feel like a puppy and act like one too. I am just a guy who enjoys all life has to offer.
My foster mom says I am very smart and a fast learner. It only took me a couple of days to learn that when I go outside to the bathroom, I get treats when I come back in. Treats are one of my favorite things, so I will go out even in this cold and snow, in order to get one when I come back in.
I am a very special boy and my looks are special too. I have a spot pattern on my back that looks like a paw print. And my tail-it is short, but I am not embarrassed by it. I am proud that I don't have to worry about it getting caught in closing doors like other dogs.
Thank you for reading about me, and I hope that soon, someone will realize that I would be the perfect addition to their family.

HOSS - COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT (with DONATION)
Yup folks, just like the Hoss on Bonanza (remember that tv western?) -- I have not a mean bone, loyal, honest, and true AND totally without malice to anything or anyone. I am KIND to my very core, friend to all!
I take life in stride, and also travel well in the car and HOUSETRAINED. In good health, I will in the future need a good teeth cleaning, but outside that I am fit. I am heartworm tested negative, had a Revolution, dewormed, vaccinated, sterilized, an ear infection is being treated by my foster mom who adores me and I LOVE to play with her several wee dogs, I am so happy NOW. You see I was given up, I guess because I am a senior, my family no longer wanted me, so they dumped me at a gassing pound, my time was almost up when I was saved from there and Gerdy took me on. I know sit and lie down en francais but if you hand signal I will become bilingual quickly.
Gerdy wants a real good home for me because I am so SPECIAL! Now ALL dogs are special to Gerdy but she says I am AMAZING! I am friendly and loving and I take treats GENTLY. I am not food or toy aggressive either! Are you looking for company in your retirement or want a friend to cuddle with (I am GOOD at cuddling) and to talk to? Look at my ears, I WILL listen to everything you have to say to me! I am almost 50 pounds of love.
I am a Basset Hound, a tricolor. You cannot ever let me run loose as I am a hound and we follow our noses, wandering off if given a chance, I donít want to get lost. I am so gentle that I could not defend myself very well , I like to think the world is a friendly place. So a securely fenced-in yard for me. I like walks but not a lot of running, now, but I still like to play! I am interested in everything around me. I love other friendly dogs and even cats are ok by me! I was very depressed when I was dumped as Bassets have tender feelings, I need LOVE, and COMMITMENT to see me through as part of YOUR loving family. But no, unlike the tv Hoss, I cannot ride a horse.
