Hi everyone, I'm Braxton. As you can see, I'm a unique "basset-plus"
and one-of-a-kind. I was a puppy when GABR found my first home...my
Mom was a basset. But then my owners couldn't take care of me
anymore, so I came back. Although I look like a handsome young guy,
I'm 7 yrs old. So all my wild puppy days are behind me.
Yep, I'm what you'd call experienced. Don't worry if you don't have a
crate. . .I don't need one! I'm totally house trained, I don't counter surf,
and I get along with all other dogs, both male & female. I like a nice ride
in the car every now & then but I'm really a couch potato at heart! That
is, sometimes I like the couch, and sometimes I prefer a nice big comfy
chair. But I'm always ready to cuddle, relax and watch a good TV show.
Need a nice, calm pal to hang out with? I'm your guy.
"Meet Kramer, the tallest, most athletic, and dare I say the most
handsome “basset plus” I've met in ages! Kramer is 6-years-old, smart
as a whip, and an overall great companion. He was found on the street,
but our best guess is that he came from a pretty decent home before
In the month I've been fostering him, Kramer has quickly adapted to life
at our house and vastly improved his table manners. He now knows it’s
wrong to snatch pancakes when no one is looking (he seemed genuinely
surprised for the first week!), though he does need to be
reminded sometimes. He’s smart and learning quickly.
Kramer loves to go on runs with me, and would make an excellent
running mate for someone wishing to get into jogging or get ready for
summer sports! He's putting my lazy basset to shame, who would rather
take a nap and watch us go.
He follows me around the house, but has no problem when I leave. He
doesn’t seem to bark when I’m gone, and gets into his crate without a
Kramer is a cuddler, and loves to hang out on the couch in the evenings,
preferably on my lap. Someone should probably tell him he’s a little big
for that, but I don’t have the heart as he’s a total
sweetie pie. He happily accepts tummy rubs whenever he can get them
too. Kramer is a real sweet guy, and will make a great fit in a home that
can give him plenty of physical activity, love, and, support!"
Umm. Excuse me. Are you looking for a basset to be part of your
family? You are? Let me introduce myself. My name is Butter. I’m 8
years old. I know – you’re looking for a younger basset. Please don’t
let my age deter you. I promise not to potty in your house. I’m house
trained you know. I can be a little shy when I first meet someone but
that doesn’t last long though. I love being around people. However, I
don’t make a pest of myself like younger hounds sometimes can do. I
can be a little couch potato at times. If the sofa is busy, a fluffy dog bed
is fine with little ol’ me.
I’m currently sharing my foster home with other basset hounds. They
can get a little rowdy but I’m too much of a refined lady basset to join
in. I prefer to play with my stuffed animals or chew on a bone. Well I
don’t want to take up too much of your time.
Meet Earlene. She’s a beautiful 5 year old basset. Earlene is house
trained, good with other dogs and friendly to all. Earlene’s family was
forced to give up her to a shelter because she has Addison ’s disease.
The cost of the monthly injection was just too much for a budget-
strapped family. A dog with Addison’s Disease can live a normal life
provided they receive their monthly Percorten injection.
Earlene is a great traveling companion in a car. She is playful and
loves to toss around stuffed animals. She plays with the other basset
hounds in her foster home. Don’t think Earlene is all play and no
cuddle. She likes to hop up on the sofa for a snooze and hugs.
Earlene is wonderful sweet houndette that seems to enjoy life.
Earlene just arrived in her foster home recently. If you’re interested in
Earlene, please complete an adoption application.
Mona is a really sweet girl who just wants a family she can cuddle up
to and take naps together. She came into the shelter with her nails
grown into her pads. It was too painful for her to walk too far. But
now she loves to go for her daily walks and will remind you when it’s
time…she’s like clockwork! She’s even lost a couple of pounds!
Mona is house trained, crate trained and gets along great with the
other dogs in her foster home. She also loves to ride in the car and is
always ready for a new adventure. However she’s obsessed with
cats. Her new home should be a “cat free zone”.
Mona is ready for love and will give lots in return! Don’t pass on this
Fred is a young 8 y/o...even looks younger! He was surrendered by
his owner because he was taking food away from the toddler. He
wasn't hurting the toddler, Fred was just after the food. Because he
loves food, he's a good countersurfer too. So if there are children in
his next home, they should be older.
Fred's Foster Dad describes him as an "awesome, happy, fun loving
dog". He loves to go on walks to meet new people and dogs. He
doesn't need a crate and even knows some obedience commands.
Fred is a well adjusted boy just waiting for someone to grab him up!
Please meet Ms. Rosie!! Rosie is an 8 year old, lemon and white,
female Basset. Please don't tell Rosie, but she is a bit larger than a
normal female, in length and weight. She weighs 79 lbs, needing to
lose 10 - 15 lbs., but Rosie is a Basset and half in length. Rosie found
herself with GABR after her owner lost her job and had to move back
to Illinois from Alaska. So yes, Rosie is an Alaskan Basset!! LOL!!
Rosie is the world's greatest houseguest: Completely house trained,
not one single accident, loves other dogs as she is living with 6 others,
and has no bad habits. Rosie is so very gentle with everyone, thus
making her great with kids and she has a lot of spunk as she loves to
play with dogs and humans alike. Rosie knows commands like sit,
down, stay, etc. too, she's a smart dog!
Rosie is a Basset who adores being with you as much she can!! She
follows you from room to room, loves to snuggle on the couch, and
sleep on a dog bed in your bedroom (or in your bed if you prefer).
Rosie melts for ear scrunches, body scratches, and belly rubs!! Rosie
is not an ounce of trouble and the return on her love is priceless and
the sky is the limit. Try adopting this flawless beauty, she won't
disappoint you for one second!
