Stewie #2282

On medical hold

Age: 6 months (D.O.B. est 2/2016)

Weight: 25 lbs

Being fostered in Minnesota.

Introducing Stewie, a very smart and very sweet little Basset Hound mix.  Foster mom thinks he may also have a little beagle and a little pug in his background as well. Stewie is recovering from major orthopedic surgery on both of his front legs. They weren’t growing right and it was already causing him lots of pain.  The bones still need to do some healing for about another month before he will be ready for adoption. His first post surgery checkup was good and he will have another checkup in September. At that time the vet will decide whether or not Stewie is ready to get adopted. There is a chance that additional surgery may be needed.  BBR wants to thank Blue Pearl Veterinary clinic for helping Stewie!

Owen (Max) #296

Age: 13.5 years

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

Hello, my name is Owen.  I was adopted from BBR once before but my owners recently surrendered me to a shelter in pretty rough shape, and I really didn’t like it there at the shelter.  They contacted BBR and now I’m doing much better in foster care.  I had to go to the vet to see what could be done to help me.  I was positive for lyme, plus some arthritis so I got on medication for those things.  They also found a slight heart murmur and a sore mouth that needed cleaning.  I got some nasty teeth pulled.  Now I can eat, and I love food.  My eyesight isn’t what it used to be and the depth perception is limited so I can get frightened by things coming at me.  I do wear a belly band for a little bit of urine dribble.  I am a senior, it happens.  Foster mom says now I love attention and ear scratches and I am a sweet boy.  If you are looking for a little buddy to keep you company, fill out the adoption application here.

Walter #2283

Age: 9yrs (est DOB 2007)

Weight: 61 lbs

Being fostered in Minnesota.

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

This sweet gentleman arrived at Basset Buddies in rough shape. He had not received vet care for quite a long time. His nails were very long, he had an ear infection and he had some nasty looking lumps both on his bottom and on his belly. BBR got him updated on his vaccines and had both lumps removed. We just got the good news that the vet feels he will heal up just fine. The lump on his bottom was benign. The lump on his belly was basal cell carcinoma, but it was all removed.  The vet feels it is very unlikely to return, they were able to get clean margins all around.  Through it all, Walter has been a sweet boy, friendly with all he meets.  As he feels better, he has even started playing with his basset foster brother! Walter does have some arthritis so he would prefer a home with few stairs.

Here is Walter (red collar) playing with his much younger foster brother Louis. He’s feeling so much better!

Indy #2280

6 yrs (D.O.B. 10/09)
Weight: 45 lbs.

Being fostered in Minnesota.

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

Indy is a very cuddly guy and loves to be on your lap.  He is a playful guy too, almost puppyish at times.  He enjoys playing with the coon hound at his home.  Another favorite game is playing with an old sock.  He will put it on his nose and then have fun pulling it off.

Indy has done a lot of work on his manners and his house training since coming into foster care.  We think he was crated for many hours at a time in his previous house, to the point that he lost the normal inhibition to going to the bathroom in his crate.  He has made huge strides with that. Because Indy was left alone so much in his earlier home, we think he would be happiest in a home where the people were home a lot and he rarely needed to spend time in his crate.  He also seems to enjoy playing with big dogs.He is working at learning commands and has become a master at “sit!”

Not surprisingly for a basset, Indy is quite the food hound. He will find food no matter where it might be. He does not like to share food and should be fed separately from other dogs.

Toby #2164-On Hold for Evaluation

Age: 5 yrs. (est.)
Weight: 55 lb.

Fostered In Wisconsin

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

Hi, my name is Toby and I am new to Basset Buddies. I was found wandering the street, but after having a wonderful spa day I am now looking my best. I have settled into my foster home and love having people around all the time. I am a very polite guy, and will let you know when I need to go out. Also, I’m potty trained-no accidents in the house.  If I want some scratches behind the ear, I will very gently nudge your hand so you get just the right place.

I really like the floor, and will not get up on the furniture. I do have a little trouble with multiple stairs because my legs are so short, but that does not stop me from taking walks, both long and short. I am happy to curl up at your feet if you would rather stay in. If you want a real ‘people dog’ I’m your guy! I like everyone!  Come and meet me soon!

To be considered as a possible adopter for Toby, please fill out the adoption application.
