  • Basset Hound
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meet precious Lola. Her family moved into an apartment and couldn't take her with them. Her previous owners reported she loves kids, and loves dogs. She is spayed and is 14+ years old. She likes to sunbathe and play with kids. She is a precious basset mix girl who just wants a soft couch to land on in her last years. Is it yours? Please contact Bellyrubs.org and fill out an application for this precious dog. 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.

  • Basset Hound

  • Special Needs
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?

  • Basset Hound
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.

  • Basset Hound
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.
