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.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Hello! My name is Johnny Cash, well actually just plain Cash. Being a basset I have an excellent voice and could probably sing just as well as Johnny though. I’m so happy the good people at CBHR have taken me into their loving care and my foster family has given me a place to crash for now. They are taking excellent care of me and I am really appreciative of their love and affection. I’m an older, wiser gentleman with a few aches and pains, but I have plenty of energy for a fun life. I am good with people and animals, and make friends easily. I love to hang out and travel with my foster dad when he’s working. After a hard day of being cute and lovable I like to curl up under my blanket on the sofa. Life is good, but could be better if you would consider giving me a forever home. I will love you back and there’s not a thing you can do to stop me... 1/16/18 Carolina Basset Hound Rescue adopts primarily in North and South Carolina.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Chloe is all done with her heart worm treatment, getting her teeth all clean and shined up, and is officially ready to begin the search for her new best friend! 11/29/16 Hello basset hound admirers, I am Chloe, or you can call me Mooney, my foster mom likes that name too, and I'm so happy that I was scooped up by CBHR recently. Life for the past year and a half or so, prior to being rescued I was mostly kept in a crate. My parents divorced and then my dad became ill and could no longer care for me - yada yada yada - here I am. Foster mom describes me as a petite 47 pound basset of a certain age. But despite the actual number (11ish), I’m a lively golden girl with a sweet and sunny disposition. More importantly, I am cute as a button – just take a look at these photos. I do have a little hitch in my giddy-up when it comes to my hind legs, but that's only an issue when going up stairs. I can do it, but to be realistic, I need a home with very few stairs. Once inside or outside, I'm good to go. I'm sweet and mellow and I do like things a certain way. I'm currently bumping noses and getting along famously with my foster brother, it just took a little time to adjust. We mostly ignore each other, but I yearn for the attention of my humans. I now know happiness again and my tail wagging proves it. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I prefer a home with no small children, just a hunch. I like to ignore my foster brother Buster and that works out just fine for both of us. I am eating well, I’m potty-trained, don't chew or climb on the furniture, and there’s no counter surfing - those crazy days are over. I am usually wagging my tail and will lay by the door waiting for my foster mom to come home and I love to lay on one side and foster bro Buster on the other when she is working at her desk. My heartworm treatment is just about over, and I'm almost be ready to start my brand new life with you as my bestest friend. Foster mom says she loves me so much I can stay as long as it takes to find just the right home. Just give me a chance. I promise you won’t regret it. – Chloe 09/25/16 Carolina Basset Hound Rescue adopts primarily in North and South Carolina.

She is very appreciative to everyone involved transporting her from NC to SC. She is very sweet, slim-fit and curious (lizards and bees... yes, please.). Not much of a barker, didn't even try any funny business after some over zealous next door dog got all up in her face. She loves people and takes to the crate easily.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (medium coat). Well, hello there!! I'm so excited you stopped by my page! My name is Betsy! As you can see, I'm a tad (ahem) "fluffy" but that just means there's more of me to love. I'm about 10 years old, so I'm at a perfect age to cuddle! I've unpacked my toys and bones, and I really like the foster home CBHR has for me. But, sigh, a lady of a certain age really wants her own family to love! The wonderful folks at CBHR took care of some medical conditions I have, but I will need to be on a special food - but trust me, I'm SO worth it! Small price for the unconditional love you'll get back in return! 10/5/17 To apply online or to see other available Basset Hounds, go to www.cbhr.com.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). I am Mister Fredrick McFeely Rogers, and my foster parents say that I am the most awesome Basset Hound EVER. But I am a modest, humble gentleman. I am completely house trained, ask permission to get on furniture, and love children with gentle hands. I will say that I may be 11, but I don't feel 11 or act it. I am very spry and can get up and down stairs easily, and can jog with you for a half mile or so with no problems. I like my walks, (preferably twice a day), my comfy bed, and toys to play with. What I adore the most thought is ear rubs - I love them. I get along with everyone, human and canine. The only challenges I have revolve around food. I used to get table food, and now I don't. (It's not good for me). But, I beg...in the sweetest way. It's hard for my foster parents to resist my sweet face and my begging noises...but they have to resist. My health depends on it. My foster family says I am the best. Anyone would be lucky and blessed to have me in their family! I'm looking for a new best friend who will love and care for me the way I deserve to be treated - to live like a king. I can definitely add love to your neighborhood! If you have a comfy cardigan for me to change into... wwon't you be my neighbor... furever? 01/15/17 Carolina Basset Hound Rescue adopts primarily in North and South Carolina.

      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? 03/08/17 Carolina Basset Hound Rescue adopts primarily in North and South Carolina.

      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 Carolina Basset Hound Rescue adopts primarily in North and South Carolina.
