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.



Iím a senior basset (10 y/o) who is looking for an understanding basset experienced owner. My life may not be perfect but I am a loveable guy. I was adopted out once through BHRO but unfortunately I struggled with accidents in the house. In my foster home now I have the ability to go outside to relieve myself in the middle of the night - now I have no accidents! I need a home that understands the needs of a senior basset and that sometimes in our age, we need to get outside more frequently. I am crated when my foster parents cannot be home with me.

I would prefer a home without children as I need some peace in my older years. I have had many of my teeth extracted and therefore prefer softer food to keep my weight up. I am quite content in my foster home and while I may experience a bit of separation anxiety in a transition to a new home; Iím a lover not a fighter and Iím happy to curl up to receive love from most humans. I donít enjoy the car but I understand it is a necessary part of getting to where we want to go!

I do okay with other dogs who are respectful of my space. Iíd love a brother or sister if it is the right match. I would prefer a rural or quiet setting home as I can feel anxious and overwhelmed with busy areas.

If you think you might be able to help me live out my senior years happily, please fill out an adoption application. If you already have an approved application on file, please email and let them know you are interested in Roscoe.
