Hi guys! My name is Waylon and I am a fabulous rescue success story
looking to find a rescue hero in you! Will you be that special someone
who can say they have helped completely transform a dog’s life??
I’m eight years old and was in pretty bad shape when Guardian Angel
Basset Rescue picked me up from the shelter. I had severe ear
infections and staph skin infections that made my fur fall off. My foster
mommy also worried that I was crabby and anxious...
Time in my foster home, however, has turned me into practically a new
dog! Medical care and the proper diet took care of a lot of my health
problems, and I really responded well to the routine, structure, and love
in my new home.
Today I am house trained and learning basic obedience. I “kennel up”
at night when it’s time for bed. I love to play ball and chase people
around the yard. I’m very happy these days and will snuggle and give
hugs to my wonderful foster family.
I must admit though that my past has left me with some scars and there
are certain things that scare me. I still do not like anyone to reach for
my collar without petting and reassuring me first - otherwise I get
scared. Children also make me very nervous, as well as dogs that I do
not know. I really could use ongoing obedience training and a forever
home with a firm but gentle leader. Also, on account of my allergies, I
need routine baths and a grain free diet.
Whew! So that’s me, Waylon, a basset who has lived a rough life but
has responded great to a bit of love and attention and with YOUR help
can continue to make great progress and lead a wonderful life. Please
consider adopting me, caring for me and loving me with all your heart,
Then you can tell everyone how you helped turn a dog’s life around
and made all his dreams come true.
She's two dogs in one and will warm your heart from the start! Franny,
aka Fawn, has the face of a Beagle and the body of a basset! Franny is
at least six year old who is black and white with touches of brown! She's
house-broken, crate-trained, and learned the doggie door in 24 hours!
While a little guarded with other dogs when it comes to food, she's not
an obsessive barker nor a counter cruiser. Franny also doesn't get on
ANY furniture but loves her pillow bed in front of the fireplace! She has
to lose a few more pounds, but nothing good walking won't handle.
She's already lost 12 lbs!
Franny also takes one thyroid pill with her breakfast each day. Her diet
consists of a cup of "light food" twice a day! With the cute face of a
beagle and the legs and body of a basset, Franny is bound to please
the dog-lover in anyone!
Rollin' - rollin' - rollin' -
Hear that Thunder rollin' -
Hear that Thunder rollin' along!
Don't try to understand him -
Just snuggle, cuddle and hug him -
Thunder will keep right there by your side!
Thunder is approximately 10.5 yrs. old and is a special needs boy. Every
day he gets a prescription in the morning and afternoon. He also gets eye
drops and eats a special kibble. At first he was very leery of his new
surroundings. Now he is very sweet and happy. He has come a long way.
He gets along well with the other dogs and enjoys his walks for a sniff
around. He gets cold very easily so he wears a sweater and will stop at the
door for a rubdown when he comes in. Most of the time he goes out with
the other dogs, other times he prefers to do his own thing and not be
pushed to go out. I've noticed this happens at night.
He is potty trained but like all dogs an accident is possible at first in a new
surrounding. Thunder ignores cats.
Thunder enjoys the comforts of a soft comfy bed and sleeps in a crate at
night. He loves attention and cuddles. His eyes will melt your heart and in
no time you will be his slave.
He is a wonderful older gentleman and appreciates any kindness given to
This handsome boy is Bubba! Be careful because those big brown
eyes can melt your heart! Bubba is between 6 and 8 years old and
came to GABR through an owner relinquishment at a shelter. He is
in a foster home with kids, several other dogs and cats.
He is doing well and Bubba will need an experienced owner/family to
really help him flourish in his forever home. He is building
confidence in interactions with adults, but loves the kids and doesn't
mind a lot of activity. He loves toys and has a GREAT basset "whoo
whoooo" bark! He has extra soft fur and would love to meet his
forever family... could it be yours?!
Hi, I'm Lexi. I am a 7 year old red and white girl who came to Guardian
Angel Basset Rescue from a shelter with my three brothers and sisters at
the end of January. My owners couldn't keep us because a child in the
family was allergic to pets.
In my foster home, I have a basset brother and sister. I'm enjoying the
hound dog company and actually don't think I'd be very happy as an only
dog - or maybe only if I got a huge amount of attention from the humans
in the home. There is a cat that lives here, but I ignore him.
It sure is fun to explore the house and the big fenced-in back yard here!
Indoors, I am a bit of a counter surfer so my foster mommy sometimes has
to move fast to protect the food! I'm getting the idea that counter surfing
is not proper behavior and I'm trying to restrain myself. I am pretty skinny,
though, and my fosters are on a mission to fatten me up.
I have done an excellent job with crate training in a very short time: I'm a
very quick learner! I stay in a large crate during the day and in a smaller
crate at night with my special blanky. I very much want to please so that
when I roll over on my back someone is willing to rub my belly. Boy does
that feel good!!
One big perk of my foster home is that I get special attention from my
foster Dad. I was never petted much by humans in my past life, and my
foster Dad makes a big fuss of me and even lets me cuddle with him in
bed to take a nap! Now that's what I call hound dog heaven!
Please think of me, Lexi, if you want playful and sweet girl to share your
