Good day, ladies and knights of the realm!  I am a chivalrous hound of about 6 years known as Sir Tug, and I am looking for a loving family and new castle to protect…though if my forever home is built on love I am not at all particular on the size of the towers and ramparts!


I have lately been a hound-knight on a quest, as I come from a land outside Southern California.  I had to use all my best wits and knightly skills, as I was abandoned to fend for myself in a rural area.  Thankfully, rescuers found me and helped me on my journey out here.


I will be an excellent gentle-hound to add to your round table.  I like to keep a watchful and protective eye on my people and any other dogs in our family, and I really enjoy going for walks.  I have excellent leash manners and in spite of my name, won’t tug at all.  I love to watch the squirrels and ducks when I am out and about, but my favorite activity is probably when we stop for breaks and you let me be a lap dog for some belly rub time.


Is your castle in need of a new hound-knight to love?  Call BHRSC and meet me soon!


Sir Tug is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. His 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.
