  • Howie (Y884), Age 7 years and 1 months


    Little Howie has been waiting over a year for a home! He needs a Foster Home while he waits for that Forever Home, as he's in boarding long term right now. He's on the small side, approx. 25 lbs, and he doesn't have much, if any, basset in him. Our best guess is he's a dachshund mixed with who-knows-what! Howie, who is estimated to be 5-6 years old, loves to go on walks and play with other dogs (he's not been cat-tested). However, Howie does have an alpha personality with other dogs. If allowed, he will try to get over on the other dogs in the home--therefore he needs an alpha human who will help Howie learn how to play nice. Or, he'd be a great solo dog and be King of the Castle. Howie's adoption fee will be $150. He's been waiting far too long for his special person to come along. Maybe that person is you. If you would like to foster Howie while he's waiting for that permanent home, please put "fostering" next to your name on the application. Thank you for your interest in Howie.

  • Magic Mike (Y878), Age 9 years and 2 months

    Magic Mike

    Mike is part Basset (definitely) and part Labrador (we believe). He's a loving boy, approx. 7-8 years old, who needs a fresh start in life. He's a great riding partner in the car--just sits quietly in the back and watches the world go by. Mike is a beefy, solid size. But all muscle, no fat. Mike has an introspective personality, loves to take walks, and the Basset part of him sure does love belly rubs! If you would like to meet this one-of-a-kind boy please fill out the online application here on our website. His adoption fee will be $150. Mike needs a FOSTER HOME while he waits for his Forever Home. Please consider Mike for your family--whether as a foster boy or as a permanent member. Thank you for your consideration.

  • Wrigley (Y863), Age 11 years and 10 months


    Wrigley, who prefers the name "Bob", is a really handsome red and white Basset, approx. 9-10 years of age. He's long-bodied, with a big ol' head, and has a go-with-the-flow personality. He rides like a champ in the car, preferring to curl up in the back seat to await the destination. He walks well on a leash, too. He gets along well with other dogs, is still playful, but also has a mature personality. Bob loves a good nap on the couch--like most bassets. Bob is looking for a new home where he can hang those beautiful ears of his--dangling over the side of sofa arm would be perfect. Please fill out the online application if interest in having Bob meet your family. His adoption fee is $150.

  • Shiloh (D848), Age 3 years and 9 months


    Shiloh is a super cute Beagle/Basset mix, or as this common mix is known, a "Bagel". Approx. 3 years old, Shiloh is the size of a basset, but has the beagle face. Shiloh has been waiting way too long for a home and has been in boarding long-term. Needs Foster Home while he waits for his Forever Home! Better yet--he'd love that permanent adoptive home to come his way quickly! Please put in the online application if you'd like to meet Shiloh for adoption or fostering (please put "fostering" next to your name on the application). This super cute boy needs love and a chance at a new life. His adoption fee will be $150.

  • Doodles (D792), Age 12 years and 9 months


    Doodles is a real character, and looks and acts nothing like the 10 year old hound we know him to be. He has the classic heart-shaped Basset front legs and is a true lover of people and other animals. He also always seems to be smiling, which is unusual for our traditionally sad-looking breed. Of course, we know bassets are a truly happy, fun-loving breed, and we can't think of a better example than Doodles to prove that's true. Doodles' previous owner went into a nursing home and there were no family members to care for him. Doodles is currently boarding and is in need of either a foster or permanent home as soon as possible. Please fill out the online application if you'd like to meet Doodles. His senior adoption fee will be $100.

Basset Facts! Did you know?

  1. Basset hounds are not small dogs; they just have short legs.
  2. Bassets, with their long ears and flappy lips, can be messy and are known to drool at times.
  3. The Basset hound voice, barking or howling, can be loud and insistent.
  4. Basset hounds can have a distinct hound body odor.
  5. Basset hounds do shed, some more than others.
  6. The trademark long ears are prone to infection if not kept meticulously clean inside and out.
  7. Bassets are true scent hounds and therefore must be contained by a fence or leash at all times.
  8. A Bassets' greatest desire is to be kept close to their human family, enjoying all the companionship that closeness entails.

Ready to adopt?

You've done your research—you are convinced the basset hound is the breed just right for you! You are ready to adopt and may even see a basset in our listings pages that appeals to you.

Perhaps you even have a Basset now, or had one in the past—you're probably well–versed in being owned by a Basset Hound! If this will be your first Basset experience, we encourage you to continue your research to find if this is the right breed for your family situation. A great source of information is The Daily Drool.

There are several ways to apply to adopt an LVBR basset. For your convenience, we provide adoption process information, an online adoption application, and optional downloadable PDF and Word files on our Adoption Application page.

(If you are interested in a particular adoptable basset, please note the name and identification number for use during the application process.)
