Garth needs a foster home! This red & white boy was adopted last year but was recently returned when his owner could no longer care for him. Garth is around 6 years old and is healthy, neutered, and ready to find a forever home. This handsome fellow rides well in the car and loves squeaky toys. He's been known to shoplift them in pet supply stores, so lookout! When he fills out, Garth will be a big boy. He is mostly red & white with some black hairs mingled in his dark red fur. Garth is friendly with people and other dogs, but is a bit too interested in cats.

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.

Once the application is received & approved, a volunteer will call to help you select the right hound for your lifestyle.
