MIssy is a roly poly bassety barrel of love! She is about 6 years old and finds herself in need of a new furever home. Missy has lost most of her sight but don't let this scare you off! Bassets are scent hounds and when they lose some vision, they merely rely on their noses a little more. As long as you don't move the furniture she navigates life with no problems. MIssy takes her cuddling very seriously. Be it walking or snuggling up next to her human, she is happiest when they are near by. Missy is chipped, spayed, up to date on shots & hw negative. Her adoption fee is $200
Our goal is to help basset hounds and basest hound mixes who are homeless and need human love and kindness. Too many wonderful animals are abandoned and subsequently euthanized in shelters across the counry every year; AEBS strives to save as many of these "furbabies" as we can and get them to loving "furever" homes. Our bassets come from shelters, owner relinquishments and the occasional breeder auctions from around the country. When the economy is bad, many animals suffer; we are trying to relieve some of that pain. We do this by relying on foster homes and other volunteers to help us save these beautiful, loving hounds. Thank you for visiting us! Come back soon!
Come Meet Our Pets...
After completing our brief, online adoption application at: http://www.allearsbassetsanctuary.org/about-adoption/adoption-application.html, one of our rescue representatives will contact you about setting up a meeting with the dog(s) of your choice.
Our Adoption Process...
A successful adoption depends on both the selection of the right basset for your household, an understanding of the basset's needs and psychology, and knowledge about hound care. We cannot stress enough that hounds are not like other dogs! They are completely nose-oriented, tough-minded, independent and, in short, live in their own world. If you like the idea of a highly intelligent, strong-willed, tough, independent dog that's not all that eager to please but is loving, loyal and fun, then read on!
