Posted Breed: Basset Hound. Twinkle Toes: I'm light on my feet as I'm twirled around on the dance floor by my partner, Fred Astaire. If you would like a dance, just fill out my dance card. I may be older, but I'm young at heart. You won't be sorry that you took me for a spin on the ole dance floor. Ask to meet me today. Update: Ginger Rogers has apparently never had a dental. She had severe periodontal disease. She had 15 extractions. She also had tumors on her ears and back removed. Fortunately, they were benign. Her vet bill was expensive. If you can help us with her vetting, we would appreciate it. Click on the Sponsor This Pet link below to go to her sponsorship page. Thank you in advance. She should feel much better with those rotten teeth out of her mouth! Sponsor This Pet

More About Basset Hound Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Happy-Go-Lucky: I'm a happy boy. I love life. It hasn't always been that way. When I found myself homeless and on the street, I was scared, cold, and lonely. I wasn't sure where my next meal was coming from. Then these nice people took me into their group. I'm back to being happy, loving, and friendly to all I meet. I know I'll be fed and loved. The only question now is who will become my next family. I hope it's YOU!

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). One Tuff Guy: Hi there. My name is Tuff for a reason. I'm tuff AND lucky. I was dumped out in the country and had to survive by my wits. So, I guess that makes me an ole country boy. Some nice people would feed me sometimes. Then I found a place with live chickens. They were the people who called BRAT. They complained that I was killing their birds. That's where I got lucky. They didn't shoot me! They called BRAT and took me to them instead. So, today was my lucky day, too. I'm now in a place where I don't have to fight for or hunt for food. It'll be nice to be back in a home where I can get some loving and some kibble. I'm a little timid and shy right now cause I don't know what to expect. The lady from BRAT said my future is bright. So, if you want a tuff and lucky guy, you must meet me. Update: Tuff (renamed Archie) got adopted last year and he was super happy in his new home. His adoptive dad was a BRAT volunteer and we all loved him dearly. He was always at events taking pictures of our dogs for their Web page. His efforts got many dogs adopted. Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly on October 23rd. Tuff is very confused and just wants to go home to his daddy. It's just heartbreaking. So, now Tuff needs a new forever home. He would do better in a quiet environment as opposed to a busy, noisy home. And if one parent is home a lot, that would be awesome. Please put in an application for Tuff if you would like to heal his broken heart.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). It Took a Village: Yes, it took a village to save me. The shelter was going to put me to sleep today. BRAT was low on funds and really couldn't afford another heartworm positive dog, but they couldn't let me die either. So, they put out a plea to help save me. And several good people stepped up to the plate. Thank you. Thanks to "my village," I'm alive today. I've fallen on hard times. I have scars all over my head from just trying to survive on the streets. I'm a sweet and lovable guy. Now, I'm looking forward to living in a loving home and having lots to eat. I'm super skinny. So, I need lots of groceries. Thank you again to "my village."

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). A Country Gal at Heart: I'm a sweet 'ole country gal that takes everything in stride. I'm a quiet hound who wants nothin' more than to be with my people. I'll happily lie on the couch next to you and dream of chasing rabbits. if you want a laid-back, easy companion, that's me. I'm patiently waiting for my new best friend to come along. Look into my sweet eyes and fall in love! I need a new home. Thanks for wanting to meet me. Foster Update: Payton was already a sick Basset when BRAT rescued her. Even though her stool is very runny and frequently has fresh blood. We were constantly at the vet's for the same reason. We have tried so many different medications and deworming pills. The medicine would work for about 7 - 10 days and then we would have another relapse. . This cycle would continue up until the vet and I decided it was finally time to take a look inside with a specialist. During her biopsy, the specialist discovered she has histoplasmosis, a fungal parasite, in her colon with severe inflammation. She must have contracted it as a stray dog when eating contaminated soil for food. Good news: it has not spread and is treatable. It takes anywhere from 1- 3 months to be cured. My sweet Payton will need to have two skin injections weekly, a daily pill, weekly blood work as well as a urine test to monitor her progress. Even with BRAT’s rescue discount, it will be $300 a week. Seeing how Payton is a severe case, the vet’s estimation for her total treatment will be around $3600. Although her treatment plan is in place, she's not out of the woods yet. She's had to go to the ER and be hospitalized for dehydration and bloody stools. This even happened just last night. I took this picture of her this morning when I picked her up at the ER and took her to the specialist. She's still not feeling well. BRAT has already spent close to $3,000 on his precious girl. With this treatment plan, she could possibly cost BRAT close to $10,000. So we desperately need your help with these expenses. Payton is worth every penny and she thanks you. Sponsor This Pet

I've met some great folks on my journey. I'll be glad when all my traveling is done and I'm finally in my own home. I love all humans that I meet. i do prefer to be the only dog. Due to living on the streets, I've learned not to get along with all dogs. I'm super sweet to humans. I love my treats, my walks, and my belly rubs. Give me a spot on the couch and I'm all yours. If you'd like to snuggle with a hound at nighttime, you must meet me.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). New Beginnings: I've had a rough go of it lately. I was surrendered in the Royce City raid. You may have heard about it on TV. I'm now safe and sound in the loving arms of BRAT. I know my future looks bright from here on out. No matter what I've been through I'm still very sweet and friendly. All who know me loves me. I'm now ready to start a new chapter in my life where I will be cherished and treasured. Is that you??? Foster Family Update: Kelly is a very easy dog and a good girl. She seems to do well with all people but prefers to be an only dog due to her past history of abuse in the hoarding situation. She needs a family who wants to give her lots of love and belly rubs. That seems to be all she requires.

      Breed: Basset Hound
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Carrollton, TX
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound. UPDATE 10/1/16, 10:20 PM: Maverick has had a good day today. He has eaten both meals, drunk water, gone outside to potty, taken his meds with cream cheese, wagged his tail very slowly, and barked for the first time in 6 days! Still sleeping often, but no more grumpiness toward Roscoe (thank goodness). I think the fluids yesterday were so helpful to him. Hope to hear back on Monday the results of his test for Addison's Disease. UPDATE 9/30/16, 3:30 PM: Back home with Maverick. He got two plain burgers when we left - and ate them both. Got home and he ate some yogurt and took his meds with some cream cheese - YEAH! Also ate a small bit of kibble and had a good long drink. He is rehydrated and hopefully today's boost will help him. Coughing is still mild. He is very grumpy toward Roscoe, so I know he still feels bad. Poor Roscoe doesn't understand why Mav is being so grumpy. They are both sharing the loveseat with me and sleeping now. Thank goodness....... UPDATE 9/30/16, 1:10 PM: Can pick Mav up around 2:30 PM. He is getting some fluids. His kidney values were elevated again, so he obviously isn't drinking enough. Will be able to stay with him the next couple of days and monitor his fluid intake better. I bought some groceries that I hope will entice him to eat some more, too. Please keep Mav in your prayers. UPDATE 9/30/16, Noon: Mav is still at the vet this morning, having some testing done and getting some fluids. He isn't responding as quickly as we would like to see, and he has lost 4 lbs since Tues morning. He has very little appetite, and has still been sleeping alot. On the good side, he has been getting up and walking around more, and he has been coughing some, which hopefully is helping to pull the congestion out of his lungs. I will update later today when I have more to share. Please keep Maverick in your prayers. This dog's spirit continues to amaze me! Update 9/29/16 - Sweet Maverick is still a pretty sick boy. He is improved over Tuesday, but he still isn't well. He is starting to cough somewhat, so hoping that means the pneumonia is breaking up and trying move out. We see Dr. C at 8:00 am tomorrow and hope that he sees some improvement. Please continue to keep both Mav and Roscoe in your prayers (Roscoe was neutered and had a couple of Basset Bumps removed on Tuesday). Thank you! ;Update on Maverick 9/28/16 - from Janet Dean, Mav's foster to adopt mom - "Mav has as been up and down last night. I slept on the loveseat so he could be close to me if he wanted to be, and he did 4 different times. Kept a blanket on him as he shivered often, and I know it was cooler last night, too. Didn't want to eat or take meds early this morning, but he did when I got back from picking up Roscoe. Very grumpy and growly with Roscoe. Both did finally eat breakfast with a scrambled egg from McDonald's, and took their meds". UPDATE on Maverick 9/27/16 am - good news and bad news. Mav saw his regular vet today who said although his kidney values are not great they are not the cause of his being ill. His lungs sounded ok but he did a chest X-ray to make sure. The vet discovered cloudiness in his lungs and diagnosed PNEUMONIA! Mav got two antibiotic shots and was sent home with Amoxycillin and Baytril. Mav will be seen on Friday and we're praying that he's feeling better. Your prayers are needed for Mav this week. UPDATE summary on Maverick - over the weekend Maverick had to go to the ER. He suddenly became ill and his gums were pale. He was rushed to the closest hospital where they immediately began an IV. He was in terrible pain. A abdominal ultrasound will be done today. As soon as results are in we will give everyone an update. UPDATE on Maverick 9/25/16 pm. This poor guys kidney levels are off the charts. Kidneys functioning at 35% making him at risk of failure. Platelets are low again probably from ehrlichia and anaplasmosis. Mav was dehydrated and had to have fluids while at the hospital. Maverick is scheduled for a abdominal ultra sound tomorrow. UPDATE on Maverick 9/25/16 am from Mavericks foster mom from ER waiting room - Finally got into exam room, and they just took Mav back for blood work and possibly an abdominal scan. 3 vets here, so hopefully will know something soon. UPDATE on Maverick 9/25/16 am. Maverick became suddenly lethargic and non responsive. Gums pale. Heading out to ER.

Our last owner's fence was in bad repair and we are adventursome hounds. So, we would wander around until the doggie police would pick us up. The last time that happened our owners said they didn't want us anymore. We were shocked! So, the good people at BRAT brought us into their program. We would love a home where we can be together and inside for a change. Just make sure you have a good fence or we'll be gone again!!!! Thank you for considering Olivia and me for your home.

Because I was at the shelter for over 3 months. I didn't think I would ever be in a home again. I was getting discouraged. I'm too young to be homeless, but I was. So, thanks to BRAT and thanks to my transporters, I get to live in a home again. Yay! Can you tell from my picture and big smile how happy I am? Next, I want to say thank you to my adoptive family. Will that be you?
