Being fostered in Minnesota

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

Hi my name is Bruce and I’m just a pup.  Sometimes puppies get silly ideas and I guess I got one.  I thought it would be a good idea to eat a sock.  Pretty soon I had a really bad tummy ache. My family did not have the resources to help me so the vet called BBR.  Turns out  I needed TWO surgeries because there were complications after the first.   I really love to snuggle and I give kisses too.  I am a very good boy about going in my kennel.

Bruce is an active, playful youngster and would love to have a basset playmate. Bruce will need a special adopter because of his “dietary indiscretion” habits.  The good news is that Bruce has no problem wearing his “hood” when he goes on walks.  The hood keeps him from swallowing things he shouldn’t.

Bruce is on a special diet to prevent urinary crystals.  In addition, Bruce has been found to have an old leg fracture that was never treated. He may need surgery sometime in his future.  Bruce takes an inexpensive behavioral medication once a day.

Bruce is a very affectionate and snuggly basset, but can be very possessive about items he has taken.  Because of this, he will not be placed with a family that has children or has children who visit frequently. Bruce is crate trained.

Bailey #1966

MaleBailey 5
Age: 10 yrs. (DOB: Nov. 2004)
Weight: 58
Being fostered in Minnesota.

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

Note: Bailey is back with BBR due to a change in circumstances of his adopter.  He is still the sweet, easy going basset boy he has always been. He loves a good belly run, a good snack, a nice walk and a good place to take a nap.

Hi there! I’m Bailey. I’m a big, strong, fun-loving, care-free, social, 10-year-old basset boy! I get along well with the other dogs at my foster home. I am smart, adjust quickly to routines, and just want to please my people. If you’re willing to rub my belly, scratch my chin, and/or snuggle, we’ll get along just fine! Here’s what you should know about me:

Alias: “Cowboy” (You’ll understand when you see me run!) My foster mom also calls me her “Love Bug.”

Favorite Snack: Bread  — I can hear a bread bag opening from anywhere in the house!

Favorite Toy: I carry my stuffed duck with me when I am excited! I’d be lost without it…

Favorite Thing to Do: Hang out with people (so I’d do best in a home where someone is around a good portion of the day). A canine friend would be super, too!

Favorite Time of the Day: Breakfast, snack and dinner

Best Bad Habit: I bark “Hello” to everyone I meet!

Funniest Thing I Do: I can fold a dog mat or blanket into a pillow.

I’ve been waiting for my forever home! Could it be with you?

Pete #2246

MalePete2246b
Age: 12 yrs. (DOB: 2003)
Weight: 65 lbs
Being fostered in Minnesota.

☆•*¨*•.¸Hug me!¸.•*¨*•☆☆

BBR got an email from a shelter where Pete had been left. Abandoned at 12 yrs old, even worse, classified as NP – “not place-able” because of his age and health.  Sadly that means he would be put to sleep if a rescue did not come and get him quickly.  They even called him “somewhat obnoxious and aloof”.  Thankfully, a BBR  volunteer picked him up the next day, and the very next day he was at the vet getting the treatment he very much needed. Poor guy had a large growth hanging down from his eyelid rubbing directly on his eye. He promptly had surgery to remove the growth and got his teeth cleaned at the same time. Pete is happily settling in at his foster home and is very much the gentleman. He certainly is not aloof and loves his neck scratches and belly rubs. He is not obnoxious either, well not more than any other basset who likes to speak their mind.  Pete is quite spry for a senior basset, enjoys his walks and enjoys meeting other dogs.  He has no trouble with stairs or jumping on the couch :)  Pete is accepting applications for a great forever home where he can get all the love a sweet, smooshy boy like him deserves.

Hi, my name is Tank!  The name doesn’t fit me that well though because I am very shy.  When I first came to BBR, I was so scared of everyone.  My foster family has been very patient with me. My foster dog brothers have also helped show me I don’t need to be so scared.  I am a young guy with lots of learning to do.  I need a patient family that will give me time to adjust.  A nice, calm 4-legged sibling to help me learn the ropes is required.  Since I am so shy, an adult only family is preferred.  Children might scare me.  I am getting braver every day and I am a happy boy!

Sammy #2245 Adoption Pending!

MaleSammy2245
Age: 2 and 3/4 yrs. (DOB: Aug 2012)
Weight: 68lbs
Being fostered in Minnesota.

Hi,
My name is Sammy! I’m a young guy looking for a new home.  In my first home, I wasn’t exposed to a lot of a new things so I am pretty nervous when I meet new people. Now that I am in foster home with BBR, I am trying lots of new things and I think I am getting braver.  I like other dogs and I am crate trained.  I guess I could use a little training on the leash, and I must admit I LOVE to shop the counters. I also get very nervous at the vet so I guess I should wear a muzzle when I go there.  I think my good qualities shine above that though.  I am very handsome, even noble.  Don’t you think?  I get along well with my foster siblings and I even take treats gently.  The right family would help me learn to be a good boy, even when I am nervous, and in return I would shower them with kisses!
