Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Dear Basset Lovers, What do you get when you cross a basset and a lab? You get Cora! She'll act like a basset all day long as long as you love her... and her bestie Chloe. You get the short stature and that wonderful personality that only they can possess. These two are a perfectly matched set - Cora and Chloe. A ready made four legged family. They have a bit of a hard luck story…both were adopted then dumped in a shelter when the owners no longer wanted them. Everybody deserves a little happiness, even if they are a whole lot cuter than a basset. They are very bonded and really need to be adopted together. Foster mommy Robin says they are wonderful dogs. They love to play, love to walk, and get along get with other dogs. Cora (the bassador) gets a little nervous with lots of people coming and going, but Chloe takes everything in stride. Foster mom also says they are super smart and obedient. Both house broken and listen to all the commands they are given. They ride well in the car and love everyone and every dog they've met so far. They haven't seen cats or little kids yet. But wouldn't this be a great set of twins for the perfect loving home! 05/27/15 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

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.

      Location: Charleston, SC
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Helen recently came to our foster home and is a WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL dog! I was concerned about her blindness and how she would adapt, but she acts like she has lived in our home forever! She immediately sniffed around the yard and our home, tail wagging nonstop. She very quickly found her food dish and her favorite dog bed in the house. After a long day of transport and medical care, Helen is quickly feeling better and has quite the pep in her step. This girl is estimated to be between 7-10 (her teeth looked better than the vet expected). She is recovering from a severe ear infection and will need some dental care, but I would start thinking about Helen for your home. She is very friendly, loves belly rubs, likes our basset Gus, loved going for a long walk this morning, and LOVES to eat. Don't let her blindness fool you, Helen would be a terrific addition to a loving family! Most recently, according to Helen's recent blood work, she is in very good health and only uses a daily supplement for her joints and is ready to go. Contact CBHR today to see about making Helen part of your family. 10/31/16 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Charleston, SC
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). CBHR’s sweet Emmy found herself in need of rescue at the golden age of about 15. This lovely lady’s family dropped her off at the shelter as a euthanasia request as they said they couldn't keep her anymore! You know that a dog of that age in a shelter doesn’t have many chances. The shelter staff was just heartbroken for Emmy and said despite her age and a touch of arthritis in her back legs she really had no ailments that should doom her to euthanasia. That’s when the shelter called CBHR. And you know CBHR was glad to help. Emmy has been in a wonderful, loving foster home since March and enjoying every minute of her family. She’s been doing great, but a few weeks ago a large lump appear on her back leg. Her doctor took a sample of it and found out it is a mast cell tumor. With her advanced age and the location of the tumor doctor feels she is not a good candidate for surgery. However, a local oncologist generously donated some left over treatment of a drug that specifically works against her kind of cancer. It’s has a lot fewer side effects than traditional chemotherapy. We hope this will shrink the tumor and let Emmy continue to have quality of life for her remaining time. Right now Emmy has a six week supply of the medication, but she will need daily medication for approximately the next six months. She needs sponsorship of $150 per month for her to continue on the medication. 09/28/16 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Charleston, SC
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). MerryBelle has whipped her foster home into shape and is now looking for a forever home where she can do the same. Medical stuff is all done and she is better than ever. Her biggest challenge was getting her foster mom trained. This girl runs the place on a daily basis. If you need a wakeup call, she's got it covered. Don't forget, she likes an after supper nap, but then it's time for a little walk to check out the neighborhood and she will not take no for an answer. When it's time to walk... it's time to walk. She may have short, very slow, interesting legs, but fitness is important to this gal. With personality to spare, this 9 year old cutie pie loves to wag her happy tail. She does require a home without stairs. She is good about letting you know when she needs to go out by standing at the door, but can't really make it 7 plus hours a day without a potty break, so will need a home that can accommodate that. She is quite the outdoorsy type and loves lying in the sun or snooping around in the grass for scents. She lets her nose guide her in the direction of the most enticing scent. As any basset does, she isn't shy about letting you know when it's breakfast or supper time. So if you're looking for an honest conversationalist of a hound, MerryBelle might be for you. She hopes her forever home will have other four leggers for her to play with as well, so she can bark at them too. No matter to her and those challenging legs when things happen, she rights herself , gets her legs back under her and is on her way. She will pull like a tank to get to a scent, bird or squirrel nearby. Foster mom uses a harness for her to be able to pick her up and turn her in the direction she needs to go . And it also helps to steady her.. MerryBelle will make you laugh and smile several times a day. She is kind, funny and very loving. She does the best she can with the equipment she's got and doesn't want you holding that against her as she attempts to put her front paws in your lap. She's a good car rider, loves short distance walks, does well on a leash, as long as you have time to stop and smell the roses. Maybe you're a retired person with strong arms to carry her sometime? She likes kids, but they'd probably make her over do it. They call her thumper because of the sound her happy tail makes against all the furniture, and she runs with her back legs together like a little bunny. She's waiting on just the right new best friend. Could it be you? 08/12/16 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). This is Willie - he recently celebrated his one year anniversary with his foster family. During that time he devised a crafty plan to push his profile to the top of the available hound list alphabetically and implores you not to contact the website administrator. I mean, just look at that face. How has this not won anyone over in a year? It's beyond comprehension. You know you want to just scratch behind those big old velvety ears! The happiest day of his life was the day he got out of the shelter, just look at that smile. Don't get him wrong, life at his foster home has been great, but he knows the right family is out there just waiting. Willie is a happy young fellow - age is only a number. Willie has a favorite chair as you can tell from his photos. He is a very active little guy, and loves the great outdoors - running and chasing with his other four legged friends at home. And if his four legged friends won't run and play, he'll run all by himself - he loves to run and he isn't afraid to show it - he tears across the yard until he wears himself out. So as you can tell, life is good, but now he's ready to liven up your household. There have been a few bumps along the road. And maybe Willie did put a little of the "can" in cantankerous - it's called personality, people. With a little guidance and structure though, he will make a colorful addition to just the right family. He's doing well with other dogs and takes to meeting new people - nudging them for affection. Don't let Willie's scheme to move to the top of the basset list be in vain, call CBHR today and see about making him your new best friend. 07/14/16 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Lucky is lucky indeed. Blind and hearing impaired, his life was deemed unworthy by the high kill shelter where he ended up. Fortunately CBHR quickly scooped him up in their caring arms and he is now learning he is loved and valued. Despite his limitations, Lucky gets around well using his nose and sense of touch. He is able to navigate in and out of a doggie door and up and down a few steps. Though he enjoys exploring and isn’t afraid to get around on his own, he would not do well with a lot of steps (getting up is not a problem…getting down is another story). Lucky may be a bit testy and cautious around new people at first but once you have earned his trust, he loves to be loved and petted. He would not do well around younger children. He hasn’t been around cats but since they could easily avoid him, it shouldn’t be problematic. He is good around older dogs who give him space but might not like young or playful dogs. He enjoys short strolls outside but likes being inside most of the time. He doesn’t mind being in his crate and will stay in it all night with no problems. He is doing well with house training but could have an accident if he gets confused where he is and cannot get outside in time. Patience and routine are key with Lucky. Lucky needs eye drops twice a day to control pressure in his eyes. He is good about getting these as long as he can smell you and the drops. He seems to know they help him feel better so he usually doesn’t fight it. If you’re ready to give this deserving fellow a chance, call CBHR today. 05/10/16 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Are you looking for a brand new best friend that is fluffy in all the right places? You've come to the right place. Meet Fred. You might call him Fat Fred in the beginning, but get to know this guy and you'll be calling him Freddy the Teddy. Oh yeah... he's good! His hair is also a touch fluffier than normal, only adding to Fine Freddy's endearing qualities. And his smaller frame would make him the perfect lap dog. Fred might have had a bit of bad luck before being rescued, having his owner pass away, but he's a treat jar half-full kind of hound and ready for the next chapter in his life. He's possibly the shortest shadow you'll ever have, as Fred likes to be nearby, he doesn't want to get left behind again, and who can blame him? Perhaps Fred is an international traveler and speaks multiple languages... we don't know... but currently the English versions of "sit' and "stay" ain't really scratching him where he itches, if you know what I mean. He does however speak "treat", so show him one of them and you've got this MENSA card toting hound's full attention. Fred would also love to take a walk with you and does well on a leash. Freddy seems to have a soft spot for the ladies and the kids and some of the softest fur you've ever felt. He might pull the slow basset stroll most of the time, but when it's called for, Fred can turn on the speed. Once settled in, he'd likely do best as an only dog and should be a great addition to any family. Ask for Fred. 06/09/15 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Meet Lady Emily. She is a wonderful dog and has a great disposition. The vet agreed that she certainly doesn't look 10 years old (except a little greying on her muzzle). She loves riding in the car and seems very calm and pleasant when meeting strangers. She is a certified therapy dog. Her previous owner took her to library reading program to read with children. She loves men and women. She has been a little shy around foster mom's cat. Initially not even making eye contact with her and leaving her food bowl the cat approached. She is great with other dogs and will sometimes engage the younger dogs in a game of chase. She does seem to prefer to go out on a leash than to use the dog door. But she is using the dog door without encouragement in the last few days. Emily apparently wasn't into the whole 'obedience' game. But how many bassets are? She may utilize the old selective hearing if you start saying things like 'sit' or 'stay', but she is such a pleasant walker on the leash. The first few nights at her foster home, Emily slept in an open crate, by her own choice. But she has been sneaking up and sleeping on the foot of the bed for the last few nights. That's more of a basset style Miss Emily. Doesn't this lovely young lady sound like the perfect companion. Called and inquire about her today. 09/23/15 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Location: Charleston, SC
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). What a lovely name for a lovely lady. Annabelle is a lovely lady who came to CBHR in 2008. All was well in her life until her owner died in 2014. As you all know, once a CBHR dog, always a CBHR dog. Annabelle came back to CBHR a bit older and with a few more special needs. This sweet girl takes heart medication and has a bit of arthritis so she can’t do stairs very well. However, that big heart still has so much love to give. Can you help her get over losing her beloved family by giving her a new home of her own? Keep reading to hear what Annabelle’s foster mom has to say about her… So Annabelle, aka Annie, or Annie-belle is such a sweet senior. Her heart is so big and she is just pure LOVE. We are unsure of her exact age. The vet estimates about 12. She has her moments when she acts much younger. Usually when we return home from our workday, or a 10 minute ride to the grocery store. She is always happy to see us. She also gets very excited for her walk to the stop sign everyday. That’s about as far as she will go, unless she sees a cat or another dog that she doesn’t know, then she will give you a run for your money. Cats tend to make her forget that she has lumbar/sacral back issues. She has a little sway to her stride. She looks prissy when she walks. The down side is that she can’t get up steps. She can get her front feet up, but not the back. Ramps are great though!!! Recently Annie has had fluid around her heart, which causes her to cough often. We are still trying to eliminate the fluid…it’s challenging, but she’s a trooper. It isn’t slowing her down and it doesn’t keep her from barking when she wants to come in or go out. She has great voice and she isn’t scared talk to you when she needs something. We are positive that she can tell time, because she knows EXACTLY when it’s time to eat. The girl LOVES to eat!!! Most of her time is spent sleeping. She loves nap time. OH, she loves belly rubs too! She’s just an all around GREAT hound! 12/08/15 To apply online or to see other available basset hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.
