Posted Breed: Basset Hound. Blondes Have More Fun: Some people think my face has gone gray. I object to that. I'm a platinum blonde. You know, like Lady Gaga. I love being a blonde. My life has gotten so much better and more fun since I've gone platinum. I was rescued and my life has been great since then. And I'm told when I get a forever family, my life will be even more wonderful. So if you like fun, loving blondes, I'm your girl! 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! Foster update 12/22/16: Ginger has been a joy to foster. She absolutely purrs when her foster family gives her belly rubs and chest scratches. And she will come up to her human for ear scratches. Just recently she has been getting in her humans lap - just purring and making joyful noises. Ginger may be older, but we think of her as a fine wine that has aged to perfection.

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). Boomerang: Hi. I'm Sullivan AKA Ollie. I was with BRAT a few years ago. Then I got my forever family. I was extremely lucky to have found my home. Then my parents fell on hard times. They made the hard decision that in my best interest, it was best for me to find another home. We all cried buckets of tears, but they wanted to make sure I was taken great care of and that I wasn't alone all the time. So, I boomeranged back to BRAT. I'm looking for another family. All of these changes has made me a bit nervous and anxious. I can't wait to get settled in my new place. If you want a sweet and loving guy, you must meet me.

      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. Immediately, 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. Since I've gained weight, I'm able to start heartworm treatment in January 2017. Thank you again to "my village" for saving me.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Good Traveler: Good thing I love car rides. I was found wandering the roads in Brownsville, Texas, which is on the Mexican boarder. Animal control picked me up. They called my family, but they didn't want me back.I was beyond devastated. So I started my journey all the way to the Dallas area and to BRAT. An 11 hour drive! I fell in love with all the volunteers that helped in my journey. My favorite things are treats, walks, belly rubs, and snuggling on the couch. I would do well as an only dog or with other submissive dogs. All I want for the holidays is a home of my own. Is that you??? I sure hope so.

      Breed: Basset Hound

      Location: Carrollton, TX
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound. Thank you all for following Maverick's story. He had a lot of issues when he first came to us such as mange, heartworms, and kidney issues. He had to go to the ER often. We weren't sure he'd make it. He's a fighter though. His foster mom loves him dearly. So, he knows love and support. He's finally gotten to the point where he can start heartworm treatment. However, we have to do it slowly and on a special regimen. It will take 4-5 months. Here's a few updates for you. UPDATE FROM JANET 2/8/17: Poor Mav. He is really sore and not feeling well last night. Doesn't want to eat. Is shaking some from pain. I did get some Trammadol and his nightly meds down him so I hope they kick in soon. He truly has 'whitecoat syndrome' at the vet, then as soon as he gets home, he crashes and burns. He is really having a difficult time getting comfortable. I am glad I am working from hometomorrow so I can watch him closely. Roscoe did not eat at all yesterday. He was here by himself and he doesn't like being without his buddy, Mav. They are both snuggled up close to me. My sweet boys........ ************************************************************************************** Please keep Maverick in your prayers today. He has his first injection to kill off the adult heartworms. The bug guns come out today. Just praying our compromised guy does well. He gets to come home tonight if everything goes well. All paws are crossed he does well. ❤ UPDATE 1/5/17: Mav did great with his HW treatment today. No issues at all. Goes back in early Feb for his first injection of ivermectin....just hope he continues to do well then. UPDATE 1/4/17: Mav started his HW treatment on 12/6/16 and has done very well for this first 30 days. He goes in tomorrow for treatment #2 of 4. Will stay at Dr Carter's for the day (same as 30 days ago.....getting a Heartgard and watching to see how he reacts). He has been on Doxycycline and Prednisone for 30 days now and has done well. He has a great appetite. He'a only vomited once. He plays with his many squeaker toys he received from his BRAT Santa Angels! He does not have Addison's disease. Praise The Lord. 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.
