Trigger is one of the coolest dogs you’ll ever meet!

 Weighing in at about 35 lbs, he has the softest coat and will amaze you with how dances on his hind legs for treats! He’s housebroken and also knows basic commands like come, sit and stay. Trigger does really well on a leash and enjoys long walks through the park and to the Farmer’s Market.

 He’s so smart that he even wiggles himself into his walking harness! He’s very well behaved out in public so we’ve even taken him hiking in Hocking Hills! Kids and strangers would come over to pet him and he greeted them all with a doggy smile and a tail wag. Although he’s been around younger children and did great, we think he’d prefer to not live with them. Trigger likes to be the center of attention! He loves to snuggle on the couch and have his belly rubbed. He has a lot of love to offer and enjoys showing his affection by giving kisses!

 He’s currently living with 3 other pups – 2 males and a female. He loves to play with his sister but isn’t too fond of his alpha brother - We think this is because Trigger is an alpha who doesn’t want any competition! Because of this, we think it would be best for him to go to a home with either no other dogs or only a (non-dominant/easy going) female dog. Trigger gets protective over his food when other dogs are around, so we feed him separate from his siblings to help keep the peace. Easy peasy!

 If you’re looking for a smart, well trained and cuddly companion who can double as your walking buddy, Trigger is the perfect fit for you!

Trigger is currently being fostered in Columbus, OH. 


All OBHR dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD on shots, checked for heart worm and on heart guard and flea preventative. If interested in one of our dogs please fill out an application at today.

About Ohio Basset Hound Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Ohio Basset Hound Rescue Inc. (OBR) is an all volunteer organization dedicated to helping the homeless hounds of Ohio

Our volunteer network spans to the four corners of Ohio. Our funds come solely through donations and fundraisers. OBR does not have a shelter of its own. Our “shelter” exists through our foster families that open their hearts and homes to a hound in need.

Once these homeless hounds are with OBHR, the dog is then given all necessary medical attention – all vaccinations (including bordatella, rabies & distemper series combination); heartworm test – monthly preventative is given if the dog tests negative, treatment for the disease is given if they test positive; spay/neuter – to prevent more hounds from facing as uncertain of a future; and any other needed medical treatment.

These hounds are then placed in foster care, so long as there is a foster home open and ready to take them in.
Whether it is dinnertime manners, proper behavior techniques, or social housebreaking skills – OBHR foster homes do it all. These homeless hounds remain in foster care or in a boarding kennel (if a foster home is unavailable) until a forever home can be found for them.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters are required to complete and submit an adoption application as the first step in the adoption process. The adoption application can be printed out directly from OBHR’s Web site or submitted on line at

OBHR adoption applications will not be processed if the form is not completed in full, or if the application does not contain the signatures of both the applicant and their spouse / significant other. The information provided in the adoption application will help us find the best hound for you and your family. We will check with your veterinarian as to the consistency in the level of care that your current animals receive. We also will check with your landlord (if you rent the property on which you reside) to verify that you are permitted to have an animal at your residence.

Potential adopters will not be permitted to set up a meeting with a rescue dog in a foster home until they have an approved application with Ohio Basset Hound Rescue. Once the potential adopter has an approved application, then arrangements will be made to have them meet with the rescue dog at the foster home.

A minimum donation of – dogs under 1 year $250.00 - for dogs 1 – 8 yrs. old – $200.00 for dogs 8 years and older $100.00 , is required and will be payable at the time of adoption and is not refundable. OBR reserves the right to change the adoption donation without prior notice on the OBR web site or applications.

The adopting family also will be will be required to sign an adoption contract at the time of the adoption. All dogs are spayed/neutered; inoculated (includes rabies, bordatella vaccinations, distemper series combination), heartworm tested and kept on monthly heartworm preventative prior to adoption. This is the basic care that each hound receives. If any additional medical treatment/attention is needed, OBR will provide that to the hound at the direction of our veterinarians (ie. Dental, heartworm treatment for those who test positive, deworming, etc.)

Please note that OBHR Adoption Applications may take 7 – 10 business days to process. Potential adopters will be contacted by a collect telephone call with the status of their application, once the application has been processed and reviewed.
