Update 5/4/17

Norman has come a long way and has really started to open up to us, he now will sleep next to us, and play with our dog. He probably will need to be crated when no one is home and throughout the night. We have tried multiple things but he still has accidents when he is not being watched. He is very stubborn and needs to go to someone with patience. If Norman doesn’t want to do something, then he won’t do it. He will bark outside for his own enjoyment and this is pretty important because he will do it all the time and if you have close neighbors, it could cause some issues. I’m not sure how he would do with cats. When I took him to the vet, he couldn’t keep his eyes off them. There is aggression with bones and he loves to tear up any stuffed animal. But he is just the biggest sweetheart! 




*******Norman is now in a foster home in Brook Park, OH.  He is doing great, relearning some house training because he was kenneled for so long, but really hoping to find a forever home soon! Updates to come as they know more about him


***********Meet Norman! Norman is listed as 10 years old but you would not know it to meet this boy! He is still very active and peppy! His age is an estimate so he could very well be about 8 years old or so.

Norman came to OBHR from a rural shelter in Tennessee. They  had a special needs basset that no one wanted to take and OBHR stepped up to save her from being euthanized. Norman stuck out his hitchhiking thumb and came to OBHR with her, listed as a bloodhound. Norman may have some bloodie in him....but he is clearly a redboned coon hound and man he has the bay to prove it! He was hearthworm positive when we got him and has finished his treatment.

Norman is housebroken, crate trained, and LOVES to go on car rides. He is the perfect passenger if you travel a lot!He loves to fun and follow his nose so despite his age he WILL need a fenced in yard.

Now Norman is kind of hit and miss on if he gets along with other dogs. He was moved to a foster home for a few weeks where he did great with one of the other dogs, but not the other. Norman had a temporary foster home that said the same, he did great with her other 2 bassets, but not so much with the shitzu. When taken to the dog park a few times he did great with certain dogs, but there were a few dogs there that he just tried to dominate. Because of this Norman will definitely need a meet and greet with future fur siblings before going to a new home. 

He is a large, gentle boy with a lot of love to give! Please consider Norman! He has plenty of love to give! He is currently being kenneled in Columbus, OH.

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.
