Posted Breed: Basset Hound (short coat). Oh my, thank goodness TSBHR came along for me. This cutie needs a home with an experienced basset hound owner that likes those sassy chicks and who will set up the rules. I have a great foster who will help with my transition. Okay, so I have to admit – for 8 years I have been allowed to get my own way. I tend to guard my stuff, so no other dogs is best...even though I love to play with other dogs. Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued Basset Hound! We ask all potential adopters to complete our application and approval process first so we can discuss the dogs that fit your home. We usually have 25 - 35 dogs available and the ages range from less than year old to ten plus years old. Once we receive your application you'll be contacted by an adoption representative to complete the application process. We look forward to speaking with you about our wonderful hounds waiting for forever homes!!!

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 / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Can we say good looking, gorgeous, hunk of a dog. You got it baby – big and beautiful. Only 5 years old and full of spunk and love. What a delight I would be in your home. I do have one secret – I think it is my job to protect my people, so my foster is working with me to relax and enjoy new people that visit our home. I know, but what can I say – I like to be the center of all the attention. If I am not playing with my toys or eating, you will find me hanging around in the sun.
