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.

Can you help me identify what breed my dog is? I need to convince landlord that she's not pit.

Humane society says Basset mix. I'm thinking Jack Russell.
