BASSETS FOR ADOPTION
Golden Gate Basset Rescue managed to find foster homes for all 61 of the basset hounds surrendered to them from the commercial breeder on December 18, 2009. Now adopters are desperately needed to provide forever homes for these dogs. They are beautiful!
View all the dogs, and if you can make room in your heart and home for one or more, contact Golden Gate Basset Rescue and complete an application. Donations are also needed to provide medical care for the dogs, estimated at $600-800 each.

ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS (blah, blah, blah, blah, blah) 63 BASSETS HOWLING FOR HELP!
A commercial breeder in Northern California has been forced to close, leaving 63 basset hounds in desperate need of homes at Christmastime. All are females, most with limited socialization to humans, but bassets are naturally social dogs and they are expected to do well in homes with a little TLC. Young, from 1-3 years of age, probably not house broken since they have spent most of their lives in outdoor kennels, but they are learning to use doggie doors.
They all have that wonderful basset capacity for love and really are beautiful dogs, as you'll see when you visit the link to Golden Gate Basset Rescue, which has taken the dogs to place in permanent or foster homes.
Will you help?
Find out how to adopt, foster, or donate funds to assist with their spay surgeries and other medical needs at Golden Gate Basset Rescue. There are some beautiful dogs of all color varieties.
Take it from someone who knows. No dog loves you quite as much as an adopted one. They know you've saved them. Just ask my sweet, adoring Peaches and Beau. Before you choose a puppy from another breeder and help keep commercial kennels like these in business, please, please consider bringing home one (or more) of these young beauties that really need a home and a happy ending for the holidays.
PLEASE MAKE THE HOWLIDAYS HAPPY FOR A LUCKY BASSET!

Some may wear their heart on their sleeve; Beau wears his heart on his nose. When you look at him just so, as you can see in this photo, his nose is shaped like a heart. Bubba had a heart-shaped mark on his muzzle before it faded to white with age. I always told him that's where his guardian angel kissed him, and that's why he got a second chance at life. Beau's guardian angel kissed him smack on the nose, which is exactly what Beau does to me every chance he gets. I could ask for no sweeter, more devoted friend than Beau. He has touched my heart and helped fill the empty spaces our former boy, Bubba, left there.
