The Basset Hounds pictured below are in need of loving, caring new homes. Click on a picture to learn more about the available dog. Please note that we have more hounds in our foster care system that will be available shortly. These Bassets are being evaluated and/or receiving any necessary medical care prior to becoming available. Adoption Donation: $350 for dogs under 4 years, $250 for dogs from 4 to 8 years, $150 for dogs over 8 years. **Please fill out an adoption application ONLY if you have made the decision to adopt a new family member. A lot of time is spent screening applications, doing home visits and checking vet references. We request that you only submit an application AFTER you have made the decision to adopt and hold off if you — or any family members — are just in the initial ‘thinking’ stage of adoption. We only adopt to families living in New England – all of our volunteers are located in New England.**
Tia – Black & White 5yr old Spayed female, Basset/ Dachshund mix (Basschshund) Good with children of all ages. Lived with dogs and just wants to play with cats. UTD
From the foster home:
Tia is a sweetheart who loves attention. She is patient with kids and other dogs. She loves to play catch and chase other dogs.. She enjoys walking, although sometimes is too enthusiastic and pulls on her leash. She is house trained and asks politely to go outside. She prefers to sleep on the bed with family, but always asks first to see if she is welcome. If not invited , she will sleep on the floor nearby. Tia has a very mellow disposition. Of all the dogs we have fostered, Tia has an amazing knack of getting people to fall in love with her, from our neighbors to the vet, everyone comments on how sweet she is and asks about adopting her! Tia did amazing at fitting into our home with 2 little dogs. She won over the male puppy immediately and she loves to chase him around. Our female 2 yr old is cranky and not so friendly to foster dogs who come into the home, but overall Tia just tries to ignore her. She is never the aggressor. I think her motto is “Can’t we all just get along?” Tia will sometimes bark if she thinks that she is not getting her fair share of attention. She barks at other dogs when she see them walking by the house. Walking on leash in the neighborhood, she mostly ignores the other dogs. She is great with kids. My daughter dresses her up, picks her up, takes selfies with her. Tia just takes it all in. She sits patiently when little kids in the neighborhood want to pet her.
