Happy Tails

Have a happy tail about your adopted Basset Hound? We would love to hear it! Please send to bhrschappytails@gmail.com.

We hope you enjoy these happy tails from the forever homes of our cherished hounds.

 I just wanted to send you another note on how incredible your organization is.  What you do for these special animals is amazing. BHRSC is very special to our family and now we will be a part of it for the rest of our lives.  Because of you and the wonderful people that you have working with you, you have made our family complete again.  We can never thank you enough and we will definitely be making appearances at the dog park, we will try to make it next month.  Thank you again for taking care is us in our time of need.  You all have made our grieving for our beloved Berrie more bearable and you have given us the ability to spoil and pamper our new family member.  Thank you and god bless you and all of your volunteers, you are all angels. – Dudley’s Mom


“My forever family wanted my sister, Panchita, to have a best friend and I fit the bill perfectly!  We share everything and make our Mom and Dad so happy!” – Droopy


“I won their hearts!  I met my forever family at Brunch With Bassets and they fell in love with me and couldn’t stop thinking about me.  And they even let me sleep in their bed with them!  I am one lucky hound!” – Baxter


“I found my forever home and got a new sister, Lacey!  My forever family’s hound boys crossed the bridge earlier this year and even though they’ve been heartbroken, they decided to bring my sister and I in.  I even have a Grandma who loves me.  My sister and I have a great time playing all day and then curling up on the couch next to Mom and Dad at night!” – Fonzie


“My family and I adopted Peppa two years ago!!! She is the BEST canine companion we have ever had and we love her so much!!! Here is a picture of our beloved Basset on Halloween:) Thank you for gifting us with such an amazing family member!!!” – Peppa’s Mom


“My brother Ziggy was lonely and needed a buddy.  My forever Dad came to one of the BHRSC events, said I was the perfect companion for him and applied that night.  He took a week off of work to make sure that Ziggy and I got to know each other well.  We are both young so we have a lot of puppy energy to run off!  Plus a nice comfy couch to share at night ;-)” – Bosco


“I was recovering from my surgery so I thought it would take more time for me to find my forever family.  But my forever family wanted to help me recover so I could be a great buddy for Kona, their 10-year-old shepherd mix.  The kids and even the cats are taking such good care of me that Kona and I will be able to play in no time!” – Mugsy


“My forever family had recently lost their 17-year-old Basset named Bear, which left my sister Lucy (she was adopted from BHRSC in 2009) without a friend.  Well, they brought me home and quess what, we get along great and even look like we were meant to be together!” – Norman


“Yeah, I have a new family!  My brother Flash was so sad after his sister Mattie crossed the bridge.  He was mopey and not his usual bubbly self but as soon as we met, we hit it off!  We had a great time getting to know each other on the long drive to my new home.  Flash was previously adopted from BHRSC so we have a lot in common and are so thankful that we have found our forever family.” – Toulouse

 Lucy & Ozzie

“Boy, we are a lucky pair.  We got to be buddies while we were in boarding  but with Lucy’s surgeries and healing, we were separated and didn’t see each other for a while.  Our forever family brought us back together and we are having a great time playing together and being part of a family.” – Lucy & Ozzie


“I’m living in luxury in my new home! My people even let me snooze on the couch! Can you believe it? Oh, and I’m never lonely. My forever family includes three cats, two kids (a boy and a girl) and a super-cool set of parents.

When my people moved to California from the faraway land of Arizona, their first order of business was to find the best basset in SoCal to add to their pack! I’m pretty sure I exceeded their expectations.

And I can’t imagine a better living arrangement for me either!” – Kahlua

 Lucy & Molly

“Thanks for finding us a home that was so easy to settle into! We love snooping in the backyard and playing with our furry brothers. We swear, our tails never stop wagging.

But the all attention we get. … That’s really the best part! ” – Lucy & Molly

 Daisy Duke

“Hey, it’s me, Honey Dog! You guys probably remember me as Daisy Duke. I love my new name and my forever family!

My new people tell me my hound sister is so thankful to have me around, she’s the happiest she’s been since she lost her best friend. I guess I’m just good medicine! Is anyone surprised?” – Honey Dog (formerly Daisy Duke)


“Hi, friends! I just wanted to let you know how great it is living with my new family. I even have a hound sister now! Her name is Buttercup. Aren’t we just a couple of lookers?

I’m loving my daily walks and hanging around outside with my dad. I like spending time with my mom, too, when she’s getting ready in the morning. They all call me ‘Ida girl.’ … It’s even on my name tag!

I feel so special here. Thanks for helping my find my forever-ever home!” – Ida


“Thank you so much for taking care of me until I found my forever home. At my new house my mom, dad and sisters play fetch with me, take me for walks, spoil me with yummy treats, give me lots of belly rubs and let me sleep next to them in bed. Last year I traveled with my family to the mountains and Palm Springs, too.

I love playing outside with my basset hound friend Chloe and, yes, I even get to roughhouse inside! I’m loving life as as a healthy, active senior. I keep up just fine with young children in my house and I don’t mind at all cleaning up after them when they drop mac ‘n’ cheese on the floor.

Also, I just got some awesome, festive pajamas. They’re great, aren’t they? Life is good!” – Peppa
