  • Basset Hound, Labrador Retriever
Freckles is a sweet senior dog who loves to be petted and she gives lots of kisses. She is doing very well at her foster home. She has gotten the hang of the doggie door and is not having accidents in the house. She gets along with the dogs in her foster home and ignores the cats. She get a little frustrated when our 10 month old puppy wants to rough house and she isn't that active. She will growl at her to let her know to back off but has never tried to hurt her. She does nap a lot. She is a great companion dog with low energy. To adopt this great basador, fill out an application at BellyRubs.org.

  • Basset Hound
Likes: a yard big enough you can run from one end to the other never crossing your own shadow. Chick flicks with my mom. Wooden table legs but I am working on that. Toys and lots of toys—shoes if no toys around. Barking to hear myself Sometimes. Dislikes: a boy has to spread his “wings”. I take fences under 4 feet as a personal challenge and I always win. So I need y’all fences or leash walks only. Contact us robynmcadoo@hotmail.com

Sullivan is a gentlemen of distinguished mixed heritage with a beautiful brindle coat and short legs, one of the cutest little guys we've ever seen. And very sweet. He loves playing with toys! He believes that cats could be his mortal enemies so unfortunately he can't cohabitate with them. We think he would like some easygoing dog friends and he would definitely love his very own family. This guy was alone and scared in a shelter when Belly Rubs pulled him out. Now he's in boarding waiting for a foster or forever home! Let's get Sully a real home!

  • Basset Hound
Trudee is a beautiful Basset girl in the range of 4-7 years old, likely on the younger side of that. She's funny and playful and sweet but she can be an alpha and get bossy with others. She needs an experienced Basset owner who can keep her gently in line and curb her boss tendencies a bit. She lives with multiple other dogs currently. She's a classic tricolor and will be a great companion for the right family.

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
The perfect gentleman. He’s been around and knows the importance of a good nap and a good friend. We took Shiloh in temporarily while we looked for a partner Beagle group to help him but his foster home liked him so much that we decided to put him up for adoption. The shelter found his owner who had already given him away to another owner who didn’t want him. He deserves way better. How a dog like him doesn’t have someone who loves him tons is hard to understand. Maybe someone did once. He’s easy. Loving. Sweet. So happy to be out of the shelter and safe and fed. If you want a great companion, it doesn’t get much better than Shiloh.

Fred and Goldie. Sort of like Lucy and Ricky. They need to stay together. Their owner passed away and they found themselves needing a new home. They are an older pair and would love a soft place to land. We were told they do well with other dogs with slow introductions and with older kids. They have been in boarding for a little while and are sweet as pie, and they do seem to love each other. Can someone please adopt these two sweeties?

Buddy Boy is a gorgeous 2 year old ball of energy basset mix and needs a home where he can go on lots of walks or have a fenced yard to play in. He really loves being around people and other dogs and prefers a home where people where he has company a lot. He is very enthusiastic about cats so he needs a cat-free home. He is a big cuddler and sweet boy, just needs some understanding and guidance. Buddy is a food guarder and also sometimes a home guarder so he needs space and few minute to eat alone or in a crate, and needs time to warm up to new people. Positive reinforcement and dog savviness will go a long way with him. To adopt this darling, fill out an application at BellyRubs.org.

Louie is a sweet hound mix who loves other dogs. He was mistreated in the past, likely by a male, so he will need some patience and warm up time. Formerly he was left outside most of the time and when indoor he was crated., and crated at night. We would like to see him in a home where he is indoors most of the time and has access to a crate for privacy. He is a beautiful, happy dog and wants a home of his own. Please consider giving Louie a spot as he has not had many breaks. Apply at belly rubs.org.

  • 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. 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.
