Note: Vito will be moving into a new foster home soon and if all goes well, it will become his permanent home.  BBR will still accept applications for him at this time, should the new home not be a match. 

Hello, my name is Vito!  I lived with my last family since I was a pup, so finding myself in foster care has been a bit of an overwhelming change for me.  I am making the adjustment though, and working on the socialization I have been needing.  I am currently living with other dogs, as well as cats.  Cats are scary.  I am getting used to them but like to remind them with my voice that I need space.  I like people but I am timid so I need to get familiar with them on my own terms.  Once I am comfortable, I just want to be where they are.  I have been going out for walks as well as car rides, but I guess I am too quite in the car because sometimes foster mom forgets I’m in there!  I suppose that is a good problem to have!  I would love to have a special person or people of my own, but need a home without small children.  I was a bit fearful of the toddler in my home and former family was afraid it wasn’t safe to have us in the home together, since neither of us understood each other too well.  I should be fine with a family that works during the day as long as they have lots of love for me at night.

Howdie!  My name is Oscar and I just recently arrived from North Dakota.  My person passed away and there was no one to take care of me so I ended up in impound. Not nice place for a mature gentleman like me. Fortunately a nice lady took me home and contacted BBR and here I am, all snuggled in with a foster family.  Everybody says I am a real gem, sweet and well mannered.  Who am I to disagree!

Howdie!  My name is Willie and I hail from Oklahoma.  I somehow found my way up to the Humane Society in MN.  I got adopted but it didn’t work out well.  BBR brought me into rescue and got me checked out by the vet. I haven’t been feeling well and I must admit I was short-tempered.  Well the vet figured out that I had sores on my legs AND I had a tick disease.  I got some medications and I hope that will make me feel a lot better.  I do enjoy a good romp in the park, playing with toys and with my basset buddies!

Hi,

My name is Flash and I am a BIG basset!  I was adopted out from BBR last year, but circumstances changed for my adoptive family and they were no longer able to keep me so I came back to BBR.  I am a gentle giant and prefer a mellow household, no children please.  I am very tolerant when it comes to getting a bath or getting my toenails clipped or my ears cleaned.  My weight snuck up on me but I found out my thyroid is low so I am taking pills to help that. I also have allergies so need a family that will give me a little extra care to keep me comfortable when the itchies strike. Do you have room in your family for a super-sized hound?

Lots of love going to Scrappy in honor of Fischer #1526 now at the Bridge and to honor Fischer's family, Carrie and Rick.

Sending lots of love to Scrappy in honor of Fischer #1526 now at the Bridge and to honor Fischer’s family, Carrie and Rick.

Well hello there, my name is Scrappy!  I was picked up as a stray but the shelter was not able to adopt me out because I didn’t like when the Assess-A-Hand got into my food dish.  Rules are rules but I don’t feel this was fair because I didn’t even know what that weird thing was and I was very sick at the time.  Luckily the shelter knew I could have a better chance at showing my true self if I got into foster care, so that is how I ended up with BBR.  It is a good thing too because it turns out I have the heart of a Georgia peach as my foster mommy would say!  And she knows because she can put her non-scary human hand in my food and I don’t get upset one bit.

As I mentioned, I came in pretty sick with nasty ear infections and irritated skin, but the worst part was the bladder stones.  I needed surgery for that, plus something terrible happened to me called a neuter!  Apparently I’m supposed to trust this was for my own good.  Fortunately, I do not need any special diet or anything as a result of the stones.  It seems they were just the result of an unchecked bladder infection.  It also seems my skin is extra oily and I will probably always benefit from frequent baths.  But even with all of this going on, I am enjoying every cat, dog and human I meet.  That even includes the St. Bernards next door!  I liked them so much I thought I would sniff around and see if there might be a little space in the fence where I could slip on over, so my new family must remember that there is some sneaky beagle in this body and watch me real close.

If you didn’t get the picture already, I am a really easy going, gentle, loving guy.  I really enjoy a good snuggle, oh, and kisses too!  I like to roll around for attention.  I love to follow my foster mom about and see what she is doing.  I’ve been comfortable with visitors in my home.  I’m pretty goofy and my antics are more that of a much younger dog.  Balls, toys and the ears of my foster siblings are all very entertaining in my world.  I like to get other dogs to play with me.  I am in a pretty quite home, but a more active lifestyle would work for me as well.  Naps are always good.  I am really doing well with ear cleaning and baths too.

The folks that picked me up at the shelter would be happy to see how gentle I have been with treats, letting my foster sister take hers first while I patiently wait for my turn.  And we eat our dinners close together with no problem either.  I’m not competitive with toys, I let the other dogs race down the stairs ahead of me and I am happy to make up the caboose.  I’ve even had my treats stolen by my foster siblings without complaint from me.  When my older foster brother gets grouchy I know how to respect his space.  I do fine with my own space and sleep in my kennel at night, through the night without accident.  Basically, as you can tell, I’m just an all around catch.  If a wonderful dog is what you are looking for, then think of me, Scrappy!

Note: Due to Scrappy’s biting incident at the shelter, he is looking for a home without young children, just as a precaution.  Also, because of his beagle influence, a securely fenced yard will be needed for this crafty boy!
