Welcome to BROOD

Since 1996, BROOD has cared for and found homes for over 3,250 basset hounds and basset mixes.  Some have been abused or neglected, others needed rescue when owners moved or passed away.  All needed our help.  Our dogs will always come first. We are unsparing in our care for our droopy eared, short legged canine friends, helping them find the forever homes they deserve.
