Bert is back with BBR through no fault of his own. He is still the same sweet goofy basset boy and hopes that this time he really will find his forever home!

Hi my name is Bert! You won’t meet a nicer basset than me. I am a gentle hound who loves attention and playing with other dogs.  My family loved me very much but could not give me the attention they thought I deserved so they called BBR. I am house trained, kennel trained and I love to go on walks.  I am kind of lapful but if you give me a chance I will do my best to fit into your lap and hopefully there will be room in your heart for me too.

Hello, my name is Buddy and I am a sweet gentleman who loves attention.  My face looks gray but multiple vets confirm that I am only about 6 years old.  I am good with other pets and people, and especially love kids.  I move very slow in the house but don’t let that fool you, I did get out of my foster Mom’s back yard (a gate got open) and the Community officer who picked me up said she never saw a Basset run so fast…LOL she also said once she was within calling distance I came right to her!  I came to Basset Buddies because a volunteer was able to pull me from a large shelter in Iowa so I would have a better chance of finding a new home.  I do have some early arthritis and I take a joint supplement, mostly for my hips, so I am not looking for a home with lots of stairs.  I am not in pain but over time arthritis would make it hard for me to get up and down.  I also have a deformity in the chest cavity but my doctor says this does not seem to cause me any harm.  You wouldn’t know I had any health concerns with the way I bounce when I’m excited!

Mr. Happy #2207

Age: est 12-13 yrs
Weight: 49 lbs.

Being fostered in Wisconsin.

I am a happy guy even though I have had a rough life up until now.  I was found in an abandoned car with two other dogs. Then I ended up at Animal Control.  The good news is that somebody told Basset Buddies about me and I got picked up and went to a nice foster home.  Mr. Happy was adopted in July 2014.

Update March 2016: BBR was notified that Mr. Happy once again needed a foster home as his adoptive family could no longer take care of him so he is back with his foster mom. He is still the amazingly happy boy he was when we first met him. He’s a little older now but still ready to do his special happy dance when the treats come out.  He gets along with other dogs and seems to like everyone he meets. As an older gentleman he would prefer not to do a lot of stairs and likes more frequent potty breaks. His hearing is not what it used to be either but the nose works just fine.  Mr. Happy loves life and he would love to land in a forever home!

Happy is currently being treated for some skin and ear infections, it is possible he may have food or environmental allergies. He will be getting a dental soon and a few lumps removed for “cosmetic” reasons. The vet said his bloodwork was excellent and his heart sounded good too. He’s not slowing down anytime soon and is ready for fun.

Age: 11 yrs.

Beagle/Basset Mix

Being fostered in Wisconsin.

Hello, my name is Leroy and I have traveled a distance to get to my foster home with Basset Buddies.  My previous owner passed away and my other fur sibling and I went to a shelter in Alabama.  My buddy was adopted, but sadly I was not.  Luckily, some nice people saw how special I am and contacted BBR to see if I could get into foster care.  They also drove me to Wisconsin to make this possible for me.

In my new home I am getting along well with the 5 other dogs and 3 young girls who live here.  Those girls know how to behave properly with a senior dog which is important as I need to be treated gently.  I’m not saying I am a wimp, I can be plenty spunky and playful when I am excited.  But I also sleep a lot and have senior bones so it is important to treat me with care, like any pet.  I go with the flow around here very well.  Mom says it’s like I’ve always been here.  I don’t jump up on the furniture even though it is allowed, but I love a variety of comfy dog beds.  I like to eat but have a bit of weight to lose so I get my food monitored carefully.  I have been good in the bath and for ear cleaning but nails are another story so I only get one or two clipped at a time.

When I fist arrived some weeks back I snored like a jet plane, but it turns out I had an infection.  Since that has cleared up I am a rather quiet sleeper.  Because of the infection I have had to wait on a dental cleaning and to get some yucky lumps removed but I hear that will be happening this week.  I am also on medication for mild arthritis and though it is important for me to walk, I don’t go real far.  Mom and I are working on that.  I guess I have a bit of allergies too, which cause me to pick at my feet some.  We are working on that too but it isn’t all that bad.  I hear I will be foster of the month in March so there should be more information on the main page coming soon!  If you are looking for a nice snuggle buddy, fill out that adoption application so you can find out more and consider taking me home!

This sweet basset was abandoned in a house.  Fortunately he was found in time and brought to rescue.  At his vet exam it was discovered that he is heartworm positive. His treatment has started but he is medical hold until the treatment is completed.
