Referral Hounds

These bassets are available directly through their owners. These dogs are not being adopted through CBHR, and CBHR makes no guarantees on the dog’s medical conditions or temperament. CBHR does not accept returned dogs that have been adopted through the referral program.


Molly is a 5 years old beautiful, totally house-trained, neutered girl. Up to date on shots, chipped and regularly groomed. We did DNA test and she is a lab/cocker spaniel (50/50). She weighs about 35-40 lbs and is a medium size dog. She is a loving, attentive dog that is good with kids. She walks great on a leash and loves to go for walks. She listens wells and will alert you when someone comes to the door. Other than that she will follow you around quietly to just be near and she loves taking a bath. Her one issue is she doesn’t want to be a part of a dog pack, just a people pack. Unfortunately, I have 3 other dogs. We do love her but know she would be more happy and less isolated without a house full of dogs. It’s a hard decision but I hate seeing her not be all that she can be. She needs to be the only dog. Small rehoming fee. Greenville, SC area. Please contact Shelley at


Referral Policy

We routinely take in two to three basset hounds per week from shelters located throughout North and South Carolina. Because there are an overwhelming number of basset hounds in danger of being euthanized at animal shelters, we must reserve our foster space for them. If you find you cannot hold onto your basset any longer please, let the shelter know of our program. At that time you may also contact us directly to let us know the shelter's location. We can't promise we can take him in at that point as we are always limited by space and needed funds, but we will do everything we can to try to help him. Additionally, if you are willing to hold onto him, we can list him on our referral website. His profile will be active for three months from the request. If you would like it extended, please contact us and ask for the listing to continue. If you would like for us to do that, please send a recent picture, details about his personality and vaccination/health history, and contact information. He, at that point, would be a private adoption between you and the interested party.
