Nell is a tri-colored gal who was recently found as a stray. Nell is a 5 - 6 year old girl. She is super playful - loves toys and other dogs. She is housebroken with a dog door and is crate trained. When she wags her tail, her whole body wags. She can be a counter cruiser, once stealing a bunch of bananas, and trying to make a getaway thru the dog door. She is a little white in the face, but don't let that fool you... she loves to lay in your lap and is a hit at adoptions. She loves everybody!

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...

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.
