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: Beagle. Meet the Flintstones: Hi. I'm Wilma. I moved to Bratville with my best friend and neighbor, Betty. So, did my husband, Fred. Only he's changed his name to Louie. Betty and I think he's having a mid-life crisis. He doesn't live with me any more. We all came to Bratville in the nick of time. The shelter neighborhood, where we lived, got hit with a tornado two days after we left. The outside area where we were housed got blown away. I shudder to think what would have happened to us if we had still been there. Although Betty and I love being neighbors, we would be fine to live in different neighborhoods. We both have had lots of babies. And then we were taken to live at the shelter neighborhood. It wasn't very comfortable there. We love it here at Bratville. We live inside and have comfy furniture to lounge around on and laps to lie in. It's perfect! And no more babies for us! If you would like a sweet-natured, loving girl to share your home, you must meet me! Betty is the same way, too - just in case you think "more is merrier!"

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). New Beginnings: I've had a rough go of it lately. I was dumped in the country. I did have a family. They had me spayed and I've had a tooth pulled. It's anyone's guess as to why they dumped me. I'm not chipped and had no tags. So, we're thinking this was on purpose. I have no idea why. I'm super quiet and lovable. I'm now safe in the loving arms of BRAT. I'm ready to start a new chapter in my life where I will be cherished and treasured. Is that with you??? If you want a snuggle bug, you must meet me.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). With My Whole Heart: With my whole heart, I thank BRAT. With my whole heart, I thank my transporters. Why? Because I was at the shelter for over 40 days. I didn't think I would ever be in a home again. I was getting discouraged and I lost hope. 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?

      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 4/21/17: Wonderful news from Mav's vet! He is now heartworm negative! This young man has come a long way from when he was first rescued in south Texas. He is finally is well enough to undergo anesthesia for his dental and neuter. We know he will feel much better getting some bad teeth out of his mouth. Please consider sponsoring him at: http://www.bratx.org/animals/sponsor_this_pet?AnimalID=9785835 (If the link doesn't work, please copy and paste into the URL) Thank you.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). In the Nick of Time: I was picked up by animal control as a stray. It was obvious I was in bad shape. My collar was embedded in my neck. It had to be cut off and my neck is rubbed raw. It hurts. And my ears were all bloody. Not sure what happened to them either. I also can't walk very well on my hind legs. Not sure what's wrong, but my lower back hurts. The shelter was going to put me down due to my age and condition. I'm not quite sure what that means, but it doesn't sound good. So the kind people at BRAT stepped up and took me. Now I'm safe and loved. They said they'll fix me up and they'll find out what's wrong with my back and legs. So I was saved in the nick of time. Thanks BRAT!

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). In the Nick of Time: I was picked up as a stray and put in a small, rural, and high-kill shelter. I had a hurt leg. The shelter decided I needed to be put down. At the end of the day, I was put in the "room." Fortunately a volunteer there didn't agree. I didn't agree either, but it was out of my paws. Fortunately, the volunteer called BRAT. BRAT called the shelter and said they would take me. Thank you!!! The volunteer then took me out of the shelter and took me to her vet. Thank you, too! She and BRAT saved my life in the nick of time. The vet said my leg wasn't bad. It looked like I was bit by another dog. He's right. I was! The vet cleaned it up, bandaged it, and put me on meds. I'm now in BRAT's care. Thanks to the volunteer and BRAT, I now have a future. Would you like to be in my future, too? I need a new forever home.
