My story

Oakley & Wagner are a bonded pair of bassets who must be adopted together as they love each other very much. Their adoptive family had to return them when the family was faced with serious health issues. Oakley is a super sweet red & white, 11-year-old old girl. She is very agile, does stairs, and can get on furniture easily. She will get on those counters, so watch where you put your food. She would love for you to pet her all day long. She will get as close to you as she can and give lots of nudges. She loves to play with other dogs and will bark to get them to play with her, but she does tend to be the alpha. Wagner is a sweet laid back 10-year-old, red & white boy. He is a gentleman and will patiently wait for his treat or food. He is very laid back, loves men, and gets excited when his foster dad comes home. He will sit and lean into his foster dad and just soaks up the love. He is the perfect age that still likes to play with another dog or his toys but he loves to sleep too. He loves having a fenced yard and going out to bark at the neighbor dogs. Both Oakley and Wagner love car rides and walks, and both are crated trained and know the dog door. We suggest no small children for this pair.

More about this rescue

Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia is a non-profit, volunteer effort to save abandoned and mistreated Basset Hounds. Our rescue effort began in 1991, and we have rescued over 2,500 Bassets since that time. Originally privately funded by two volunteers, today BHRG is a non-profit charitable organization which exists solely on donations.

Orphaned Bassets are held in foster care until permanent, loving homes can be found.

Adoptions are held each weekend of the month at locations in metro-Atlanta. See our website at www.bhrg.org for specific dates and locations.

A $250 adoption donation is required for dogs under 8 years of age. A $100 donation is required of dogs 8 years old and older. This donation defrays the cost of shots, spay/neuter, heartworm treatments, and other vet costs.
