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). Adoption Fee: 212.00. 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. She can do well as an only dog or one of two dogs. A quiet, calm home environment would be wonderful 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.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Hi Everyone...my name is Idabelle...but my foster mom calls me Emma as that is what my name was from my previous owner. I think I am about 7 years old...not real sure...but age does not matter with people who love dogs. I lost my eyesight due to glaucoma....but I am doing very well with my nose and beautiful ears...thank you very much. I know exactly where to go to eat and I can find my way outside to potty. I can also find my way around the backyard and can come in again all on my own.I like to sun bathe. Sometimes I follow my foster mom around while she clomps her big feet ahead of me so I can follow. I like to sleep on the bed with the foster momma...but she has to put me up and take me down...and usually there is another doggie up there so I am happy in my own bed. I can get up on the couch to sit beside her without any help. I just had a dental....so my teeth are very pretty. The nice Doctor man removed 3 back teeth...but no worries...I eat just fine. I am living in a house with 9 other pups at the moment. My foster momma fosters greyhounds and basset hounds...so if I need to get through the dogs I just walk under the tall greyhounds. There is one small basset puppy that barks in my face at times. I don't like that..but I get along with everyone. Won't you consider letting me get on your couch? Love..Emma (Idabelle)

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $250.00. Ziggity-do-dah! Ziggity-day! My-oh-my what a wonderful day! Ahem... sorry folks, I was just so happy I had to sing. I used to live in the streets until somebody called me a "stray" and put me in the shelter. But then Pilots and Paws broke me out of there and took me for an airplane ride. That was so much fun, and the pilot told me everything is going to be better for me from now on because I was going to BRAT. BRAT gave me a real name, I'm a ZIGGY now! And they said they are going to find me a real home. I'm not sure what that is, but I hear there are things called beds, and toys, and treats and LOVE. Oh I can't wait to be loved!

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound. Adoption Fee: $300.00. I love, love, love following my sniffer. There's just so much to explore in this world! But that's how I got into a little trouble; I found some great scents and sniffed and wiggled my way right through the fence a few times. The neighbors didn't like that very much, and threatened to shoot me if I did it again. That's not very nice! So when BRAT took me in, they said they were going to help me find an awesome family with a really, really good fence so I can sniff the dirt, flowers, trees, and everything else to my heart's content. And maybe we can go on some nice long walks to sniff everrryyything togehter? I like that idea! Do you?

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Adoption Fee: $250. I have no idea how I ended up in doggie jail. The cement walls and floors are so cold in December, so I curled on the bed real tight wishing as hard as I could that I could find a home for Christmas. My time was running out, I was getting more worried every day. At the very last minute some nice people showed up and took me out of that scary cold place. They said they were going to make sure my wish would come true! I’m filled with so much joy. I’m going to find a home! I can’t wait to love and snuggle and give kisses. I can’t believe that I’ll be home with you, finally.

I'm a wonderful blend of Labrador and Basset Hound. A bassador! I'm a great dog - very smart, mannerly, and loyal. My foster family loves me, but I'm looking for a forever home. Could that be you?

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Precious Emma came to BRAT when she was only six-months-old. She was born paralyzed. She was kept outside and their yard was mainly gravel and cement. She dragged her back legs and had sores beyond what words can describe. Thankfully, they gave her to BRAT. She was seen by BRAT's vet and was given pain medication, antibiotics, and three flea baths. The groomer said she was covered in fleas and soaked in urine. We promised her that we'll do whatever we can to make her life a good one from here on out. She was taken to a neurologist and surgeon to see if any kind of surgery could be done to help her walk. Sadly, no intervention would help her. Her hip sockets had never developed. So, she became a candidate for custom wheels. Emma was custom fitted for a set of Eddie’s Wheels. After training, Emma took off and started running with her foster brothers. Oh, such happiness! Now Emma is mobile and living a great life in her foster home. Recently, Emma turned one year old. Her birthday wish is to find a forever home. Do you have a place in your heart and home for a wheelie girl?

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Adoption Fee: $250. Happy-Go-Lucky: Hey there! I'm awesome because I'm outta of jail and in a wonderful foster home. If BRAT hadn't gotten me, I wouldn't have made it. It was a small shelter and they were full. So, thank you BRAT for saving my life. I was starting to sweat!!! My foster home has a yard. When I'm finished with exploring the outside, I come in and take a nap on the comfy couch. They have dog beds for me, but who wants that when there's comfy furniture to lay my weary head on? I get along well with other dogs and kids. I do walk with a limp on my front right leg. Now, all that needs to be done is to find me that special home. Is that you??? UPDATE: Beans saw a surgeon for the front right leg. He thinks the injury is about 4-6 months old. It's a possibility that he got hit by a car, but we don't know for sure. It's not healing properly. The femur is fractured the entire length and the elbow is disconnected. It's building up a lot of arthritis in there and is causing him pain since he keeps moving it. Surgery can help him but he must complete heartworm treatment first. The leg surgery will be around $3,900-4,700. If you can help us with this expense, please click on the Sponsor This Pet link above and give what you can. We appreciate every penny. UPDATE: Beans has just finished heartworm treatment and will be going to a specialist for a 2nd opinion for correcting his broken leg. BRAT wants the best possible outcome for this sweet boy.
