Sometimes the road to a happy ending is long and circuitous, as was the case with our Cheyenne. In the summer of 2009, my two teens, Ben and Emily, and I piled in our BUV to do a transport of three dogs from the Greensboro area to Fayetteville, NC. Two of the dogs were young male tricolors, and the third was a crusty, nine year old red and white gal named Cheyenne. Read my story →
For us the start of wanting to fostering a dog was Halloween 2012. We were trick or treating with our 4 kids and we went to a house that had 2 basset hounds. One was dressed as Sherlock Holmes and I can’t even remember what the other one was dressed as but I am sure it was cute. They told us they got them from Carolina Basset Hound Rescue and we were hooked. Read my story →
My name is Bazooka, but you can call me Sam. I am about 10 years old but you would never know it if you saw me scurry across the yard to check out interlopers with Dobie, my foster brother. My foster Mom says you should see me rev up to be the advance greeter to an approaching person out walking. She thinks they named me Bazooka because I have quite a melodious voice, but I do respond to Sam around the house.
I quickly demonstrated my preference for riding in the front seat on my first car ride, but now I am content to sit in the back as long as the wheels are rolling. Hey who doesn’t like to ride shotgun ? I am quite social and I really love to welcome new visitors to the house. I also enjoy other dogs when enjoying a doggie play day out of the house.. I have become best buds with my foster brother Dobie, but I am “chow hound” and you can count on me to stand my ground around my cherished food bowl. With my love of food I can easily lose my waistline if I am not careful. Tempered eating has resulted in a handsome physique and is much easier on my joints. I am in great shape now and a few weeks ago at the Waddle I very quickly grasped the concept of the Basset Derby and I won not one but two races back to back! Not bad for an old guy. I am a wise fellow and I am aware of the rules of the household and I am quick to sense change.
I am very loving and fun and I am looking for a home with adults with warm laps and loving hands. Check out my profile. Don’t forget to share these Foster Dog of the Week posts with your friends so we can all find our forever homes. Check out this picture of me running at the basset derby. I am way faster than those younger dogs, in fact I left them in the dust Did you ever see such a joyful face?

Hello all, nice to meet you. I am Bella, or Miss Bella is what they call me in my foster home. Bella means beautiful and as you can see from my pictures I am beautiful and quite the character. I hope you all are having a great Labor Day weekend and cooking out. Oh how I love a cookout; somebody is just bound to drop something off their plate. As some of you may know, bassets are really quick if something hits the floor.
I am about 8 years old and quite a catch if you don’t mind me saying. I am a quick learner; it only took me one day to figure out the doggie door in my foster home. Whoever invented that contraption is a genius. I am crate trained but I do sleep on the couch for bedtime. I am staying with 5 other dogs right now so it is fair to say I do get along with others. The kids in my house are big and I really like them. I have been in the CBHR kissing booth and I did great with the little kids too.
I love to go for walks and of course belly rubs, belly rubs and more belly rubs. Is there a basset out there who does not love a good belly rub? I would really love to find my forever home. My foster family loves me but they do have 5 dogs already. They would be so happy if I could find an awesome family to call my own. I could be just the girl you are looking for.
