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: $150.00. My elderly daddy passed away recently and even though I tried as hard as I could to help my elderly mommy she just couldn’t take care of me. I’m glad I’m with BRAT now. I know how hard they work to find good homes for dogs like me. I’m a regal girl, complete with bassitude. A new home that knows what that means would be perfect for me. (”Bassitude“ = basset + attitude; which mostly means I love to be spoiled.) So let me sashay my diva ways right into your heart. You won’t regret it!

      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 Royse 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. All I need Is love! Update: Kelly had a bump that appeared almost overnight on her abdomen. Pathology revealed it was a mast cell tumor. She quickly had surgery to remove the tumor. Pathology suggested that wider margins were needed due to the type of tumor. A second surgery was performed and no mast cell tumors were present in that tisdued at was excised. No further treatment is needed! We will watch for any further suspicious bumps. 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 / Treeing Walker Coonhound (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Ok, so big ears? Check. Droopy face? Check. Check. Stubby legs? Uhhh... yeah no. I ain't got those. I'm more like a 70-lb basset on stilts. Sometimes I tell people that my daddy was a basket ball player but honestly, I probably got those legs from the treeing walker coon hound side of my family. Still, if you need someone to hang out with you and watch the games, it's a slam-dunk-- I'm your guy!

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound (medium coat). You know about the Velveteen Rabbit, right? Well I've been loved a very long time by a dear 86-year old man. Like the story says, you become REAL by being loved. But sometimes REAL hurts, like when my dear man was hospitalized and I was put in boarding. I waited there two long months, and nobody knew what to do about me. Thankfully, the kind vetperson said I needed BRAT, because they are very good at finding places for REAL dogs like me. I might be almost 11 years old, but I have all the love in the world to give someone who would like to let me love them very much.

      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?
