Hello friends – my name is Lady Bug and I would just love to fly my way on the breeze to meet you and your family!  I am about 5 years old and I have lots of love to give, and I really hope to find a forever home that has lots of love for me.  I came to Southern California in the last Hound Haul and boy am I glad – I had been abandoned in a rural area and given my sweet disposition (and corresponding complete lack of a killer instinct) I am not sure how long I would have made it.


Thankfully here I am and ready to join your family!  Since some of my past was a little scary I can get a little startled by loud noises, but once I know what they are I am okay.  I enjoy the company of other dogs, but given my preference for calm environments a hyperactive companion would be a little challenging for me.


I love to go for walks – I’m great on a leash and don’t wander.  I just like to be by people, so I’ll stick close by your side!  If you want to stop sometimes and let me lay in your lap for belly rubs, then that suits me even better!


So what do you think?  Do you have room for a sweet Lady Bug to flutter into your heart?  Call BHRSC and meet me soon!


Lady Bug is spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. Her adoption fee is $350.


About Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California

About Our Rescue Group...

Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California (BHRSC) offers sanctuary, healing and forever families to distressed, abandoned, injured or homeless hounds.

The hounds we rescue are placed in foster homes (or boarded, if no foster homes are available). We seek loving homes where they will spend their remaining years cuddling, eating, drooling, resting, playing, and socializing with people and other family pets.

We work to raise funds to save as many hounds as possible and constantly thrive to grow our network of volunteers and foster homes.

BHRSC takes in more than 100 hounds per year! With the down economy many families are losing their homes and having to relinquish their hounds. Shelters are full and rescues across the country are suffering. Many are overflowing and unable to take in hounds while others are closing their doors completely. Your support is more important than ever during this tough time.

We do charge an adoption fee when you adopt a hound from us to help defray the costs of vet care and other expenses for these hounds.
