Happy Tails

Basset Rescue of Florida has placed many awesome hounds into many wonderful homes since 2007. These Happy Tails are dedicated to those pets that have found their happy new beginning and to the kind and generous people who adopted them. Pet adoption is a win-win; not only does a rescued Basset Hound find a home, but in return, each one brings so much love and happiness to that family. Below are just some of the heartwarming stories of Basset Hounds who received a much deserved second chance.


Gina's Happy Tail

Gina joined two siblings, a miniature pinscher and a miniature poodle, along with a new mom. This is the second time Monica has adopted a Basset Hound from us as she was missing having one in her life. When the adoption coordinator left after completing the paperwork, all three were all running around the house playing. Gina will be missed.


Betty's Happy Tail

Our sweet “Big Mouth” Betty packed her bags this past Holiday Season to join her new family of hounds and humans – a Basset Hound sister and two brother Bassets. Everyone was camera shy except her sister, Chloe.  Betty is certainly enjoying her new life with Mom Andi & Dad Tony!


Jack moved into a full house – two parents, two siblings, and two birds!  He sure is lucky.  This handsome fellow is doing very well and enjoys his family vacations – most recent one to Georgia where he stopped to pick some cotton.  We couldn’t be happier for Jack because he deserves all the attention he gets.


Sasha's Happy Tail

The Rescue said goodbye to another wonderful girl as Sasha moved her things to Palm Beach to live with her new mom, Betsy, and her Basset Hound sister, Lola. Sasha is happy to have cats to chase and a sister to play with every day. We look forward to updates on this pretty lady.


Belle's Happy Tail

Belle entered the Rescue after being hit by a car. After she healed her broken toe, hip, and pelvis, she joined her new family in Jupiter. Belle is now having endless fun because there are always lots of dogs running around the house along with grandchildren. Thank you to those who contributed to Belle’s extensive medical bills. You helped save her life and made this adoption possible.


Noah's Happy Tail

Noah, a senior that has been with the Rescue for almost a year, was recently adopted by his wonderful new Dad, Bill. Noah had the special need to be an only dog but was fortunate to find the perfect home to be alone with his toys. Bill has been a dad to many Basset Hounds over the years and looking forward to spoiling this deserving boy.
