Otis is a big, beautiful, Basset boy and is a happy man when he has his dog friends and his people next to him. He is an active, healthy, curious boy who loves to play with other dogs, but mostly loves to be within sight of his human family. Otis has a strong Basset voice which we typically don't hear, but will ring loud and true when he misses the people in his life. Even when Otis is lonely he is not destructive, and we do come home to a quiet house - so we can't tell you how long his mournful sounds last.
He does not get on well with cats and would prefer a simpler life without felines in his home. Otis is pretty much a gentleman in our home. He is house trained, sleeps on a pillow next to the bed, and settles nicely. Being a true hound food is an important part of his life. He has an active nose and is not beyond following it to the kitchen counter.
Otis would be happiest in a home where his alone time is very limited. I think he would love a house with a yard, and maybe a canine companion.

About Golden Gate Basset Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Golden Gate Basset Rescue rescues Basset Hounds from abusive, abandoned and unwanted situations across the whole of Northern California. We were formed in 2005 after operating for nearly ten years under the Northern California Basset Hound Club.

Today, Golden Gate Basset Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization. We exist solely on donations.

Golden Gate Basset Rescue takes orphaned bassets into foster care, usually in volunteer homes, where they are loved and cared for until permanent, forever homes are found. We provide veterinary care, which includes > necessary vaccinations, spaying and neutering, heartworm, flea and tick prevention.

Our wonderful volunteers spend time with the dogs to evaluate them, deal with any behavioral issues, and restore them to full health with good food and love.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a specific kennel or shelter location to take our dogs to. We are so widespread that we just go from foster home to forever home.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our paperwork is on our website. ( but we expect an application form, a home check visit, possible reference check and an adoption donation. All this helps to ensure that the right basset hound is chosen for you, to match your lifestyle and circumstances, as you will become a "forever" home!
