Mildred is a tri-colored gal who was recently found as a stray by a metro-Atlanta animal control. Sadly, she tested positive for heartworm but she has completed treatment and is ready for adoption. Mildred is a sweet, beautiful, funny, and very loving girl. She is housebroken (without a doggie door), she sits for treats, and she sleeps quietly all night on a doggie bed in the bedroom. She shows little interest in getting on the furniture. Mildred loves to go for walks, and she walks well on a leash. She's a little too thin, but she's eating well, so that shouldn't last long. Mildred is usually very quiet, although she will growl at her foster brother and sister sometimes, and she will howl when we come home. She loves belly rubs, and when she rolls over and smiles at you, it's pretty much impossible to resist giving her what she wants.

About Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia

About Our Rescue Group...

Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia is a non-profit, volunteer effort to save abandonded and mistreated Basset Hounds. Our rescue effort began in 1991, and we have rescued over 2,500 Bassets since that time. Orginally privately funded by two volunteers, today BHRG is a non-profit charitable organization which exists solely on donations.

Orphaned Bassets are held in foster care until permanent, loving homes can be found.

Adoptions are held each weekend of the month at locations in metro-Atlanta. See our website at www.bhrg.org for specific dates and locations.

A $200 adoption donation is required for dogs under 8 years of age. A $100 donation is required of dogs 8 years old and older. This donation defrays the cost of shots, spay/neuter, heartworm treatments, and other vet costs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

Visit our website at http://www.bhrg.org/adoption.htm and download an adoption application. Once complete, it can be mailed or faxed per the instructions on the application. Once the application is approved, a pre-adoption home visit is required for families outside the metro-Atlanta area. Post-adoption visits are required of families with approved applications. Once the application is received & approved, a volunteer will call to help you select the right hound for your lifestyle.
