Available Basset Hounds

Many of the people who contact Basset Rescue of Florida think they want a puppy. What’s not to love about those big paws and ears?!  Many groups do rescue puppies from time to time but there are many benefits to adopting a hound that is out of the puppy stage.

The adult Bassets are wonderful and have gotten over most of their trouble making and are starting to come into their full Basset personality. We think five is the perfect age for those people that want plenty of years to spend with their Basset. Generally they are couch potatoes and tolerate the day-to-day activities of your family well. Most of them will do just fine staying alone at home while you are at work and will be ready to accept your love and devotion when you arrive home.

Seniors are extra special. They are the most wonderful and loving Bassets imaginable. These often are the unforgettable cases. How anyone could dump their Basset that has given them years of love is beyond us. All they ask from you is a soft bed, good food, and the occasional belly rub. In return you will get more love than you can ever imagine.

So please keep an open mind as you take a review available basset hound profiles through Suncoast Basset Rescue. We are not longer taking in rescues so they are your source of everything Basset in Florida!  [Because they require a home visit prior to adoption, Suncoast Basset Rescue only services the state of Florida at this time.] Be sure to complete their Adoption Questionnaire if you are interested in making one of theirs a part of your family. Forever.

Suncoast Basset Rescue requests a donation of $100-250 with every adoption [based on the age of the pet] which includes the spay or neuter surgery, microchip & registration, current vaccinations, and heartworm test. This donation covers the boarding and medical expenses incurred on all rescues, not just one. Click here for their Adoption Procedures if you have any further inquiries.

Email the Adoption Coordinator at Suncaost Basset Rescue with questions or follow up. Thank you for wanting to SAVE A LIFE!
