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 4 years old. 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. I need to be an only dog in the home. 

I am house-trained and do great on rides in the car. I am pretty strong when I go on walks and I hope you like to walk, too. I am quiet and love to spend time laying around the house and being with my human family. I would love a home with a fenced yard.

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.
