  • Basset Hound
This is Bullet. He needs a home as his current family is moving and cannot take him with them. He’s on thyroid meds because he has hypothyroidism. He has some skin issues also. He needs to lose some weight, but that is quite manageable. He is good with other dogs and people. He is about 8 years old. Shots are up to date, current on heartworm and flea. He does fine with other dogs as far as we have seen. He is very vocal when out on his leash, but once he's introduced he is friendly. He actually had a dog run up and bite him once and he just stood there. He currently lives with another dog in the house. Does well with children and strangers. He loves to snuggle on the couch and in bed. Cries if not allowed in bed, but will eventually sleep on his dog bed if told no. Very house trained and crate trained. Likes short walks, but does not have the energy to walk for very long. He is very food motivated which works well for training, but also means that he will hunt down the garbage when your back is turned. We keep the trash can behind a closed door as he can be sneaky when he wants. “ This boy needs a loving home and some TLC. Are you it? Fill out an application at bellyrubs.org and start the process.

Oscar is an 8 year old super sweet basset guy. He is good with other dogs. He kinda grumbles with toddlers but has never snapped or bitten. Lived outside with a senior golden but he had lived inside for first 5 years so he is house savvy. He is good on leash and super people friendly. He'll go out and do his business and then he's ready to go back in especially when it's hot out. He's not a fan of the crate. Sleeps in a dog bed and sleeps all night. He is a good dog and loves to just lay there and be loved on. He is a charmer. Wouldn't you let him charm you and be a member of your family? There is no better gift than adopting a senior dog and making their last years the best years of their life. The transition into your home will likely be easier with a senior hound as he/she will not need constant monitoring. Show the dog the water and food bowl, the way to outside for potty breaks and the dog bed or couch and the hound is good. You will know the senior’s temperament, as it is already established. A senior hound require less exercise as it will take shorter and less intensive exercise to fulfil the hound’s activity needs. You will skip the wild puppy years, so your shoes and possessions will be safe. Consider a Senior Dog. You won’t regret it as they still have lots of loving and snuggling to give.

Clint is a very sweet fella and has settled in well with his foster mom. Clint walks a little slow and may stumble because our vet thinks he has some neuro deficits from a past embolism or accident. This prompted his cruel owners to drop him at the shelter, and they got a new puppy and didn’t need Clint anymore. But he gets around more than fine and has no incontinence issues. In fact, he often stays in for an entire working day with no accidents. We think he needs a level home without any stairs to maneuver and maybe some other dog friends. He has been nothing but sweet since we pulled him from the shelter. Could you give Clint a chance?

Jasper is a big hunk of love. In fact, we would like for him to slim down just a bit. We think some former owner really showed love with food. He loves cuddling and being near his foster mom. He really likes things his way and gets a little nervous if doctors and new folks want to manhandle him too much. He’s getting slimmed down and healthy and ready to be the center of someone’s home. Jasper hangs fine with his foster siblings but prefers people and most of all wants to be the boss and your main squeeze.

We call this guy Charlie the Coyote Fighter. He was left outside to his own devices for most of his life and his owners told us that he likes to “run off the coyotes at night.” Adding insult to injury, he was also regularly chased and aggravated by young children in the family so he needs to be in a home with older children or adults. (And no coyotes please!) He loves the indoor pampered life, as we knew he would, and coexists peacefully with several dog siblings and one nine year old human boy. He deserves a good, easy, spoiled existence from here on out. Do you have room for this sweet fella?

Summer is a beautiful “young” golden girl. She likes taking naps on big soft dog beds but she also likes cruising the yard with her foster siblings. Somehow she found her way to a shelter as a stray and we really don’t know how or why. She’s a perfect girl. One of her front legs turns out, a characteristic we see often in bassets, but it does impact her mobility or slow her down.

What a sweet face! Imagine the shelter’s surprise when a truck pulled up to the shelter and a horrible man shoved him out of the truck yelling “get out.” Poor Earl ran into the shelter. He had masses on the side of his face and his bottom and other untreated issues. They were benign masses and now that they are gone. Earl is feeling so much better and is very grateful for all the kindness and attention he is getting. He loves his evening walks and the smell of the neighbor's barbecue. Who wouldn't? Can you give Earl a real home for his golden years? He’s so deserving and it will be so rewarding to watch him learn to trust and blossom.

Jesse is Daisy’s loyal caretaker. These two bonded pair are the sweetest dogs. Jesse, age 7, will make sure Daisy is taken care of before she settles in. And of course, they love to cuddle together. Jesse is still a spunky basset and loves to run around but will gladly stop for food. Boy does she love all things food! Daisy is still a little skittish and has only recently realized that inside the house is ok. I’m sure once she discovers the couch she’ll never leave! Daisy’s favorite thing is to lay outside on a warm patch of grass and suntan. She is a very laid back lady and looking for a nice yard to enjoy! How can you pass up these loyal duo?! You can call these two ebony (Daisy) and Ivory (Jesse), they are their own piano. They need a home with minimal steps.
