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.

MILO

My name is Milo. I am a 6-year-old Basset mix. Mixed with what, you may ask. Well, no one knows. Maybe some terrier, maybe some lab, maybe a little of both! I came to BROOD when my family moved and they couldn't take me with them.

I am house-trained and can use a doggie door. I will gladly take myself out several times a day for potty breaks and a quick trot around the yard. I don't like being crated but there's really no need as I am very well behaved in the house. I love going on walks and will make a great walking companion for you. I am easy to care for and don't require much to be happy. I like to hang out with my family, following them from room to room, settling for a nap close by.

I like my environment to be quiet and calm, so I'd be best in a home with older children only. Young toddlers are just too fast and unpredictable for me. I also need a home where I am the only dog. Sometimes, the energy of other dogs can be a little overwhelming.

I have soft, fluffy fur, all the more tempting for you to give me pets and scratches. I love to cuddle with my family and will sleep soundly through the night waiting to get up when they are ready. I am not too interested in toys and chew bones, but I'll never turn down a treat or a special doggie yogurt treat, YUM!!!! I am a great pal and ready to just hang out with you!!! Please contact BROOD today!!! My adoption fee is $250.00
