Welcome to BROOD

Since 1996, BROOD has cared for and found homes for over 3,300 basset hounds and basset mixes.  Some have been abused or neglected, others needed rescue when owners moved or passed away or could no longer care for their hounds. We are now in our 26th year of rescue.

Featured Dog

EDDIE

I am a sweet lovable fellow named Eddie. I am about 3 years old and have lots of young dog energy. I love to play all the time, especially fetch with my family or chasing after balls.  I hope you don't mind a wet face. I love to give kisses and get belly rubs in return. I love to flop over on my back with paws in the air to tempt anyone passing by to give me a scratch or two. You can never have too many belly rubs. My foster family said I am very obedient and mindful of my family. I have already learned to sit on command and working on a few other phrases.

I am ready for my forever home, and I do have a few requests. I don't get along with cats and will need a feline-free home. That's why my last family returned me to the shelter after my first owner died. I get along great with people and children, but other dogs, not so much. I like to be in charge of the pack and let other dogs know who's the boss. I will need a family where I am the only dog. That way you and I can have more one-on-one time with each other.

I am house-trained and do great on rides in the car. I love going on walks in the neighborhood and I'm learning not be so excited. I am pretty strong when I go on walks and I hope you like to walk, too. I will do best in a home with older children so I don't accidentally knock them down. I am pretty quiet but will alert when there is someone at the door. I also have been told that I have a beautiful singing voice! I would do fine in an apartment/townhouse or home without a fence as long as I had plenty of walks and playtime with my family.

I have a very sweet soul and will be very happy to meet you-- please contact BROOD today and we can get together. My adoption fee is sponsored by a wonderful person who happens to be a BROOD Board of Directors member. Thank you to my special friend. Hugs and kisses to you.
