Hi! I’m Jordan. I am an approximate 8-year-old pit bull mix that has my very own best friend (Zeus-beagle mix). I am bonded to him, so we really need to stay together. My foster mom says I am sweeter than honey. I love people and cuddling. I also love to be outside. Zeus and I have fun running in the yard, relaxing in the sun, and going on walks with our harnesses. I came in from a high kill shelter in Illinois. Zeus and I were strays before that so there isn’t much known about our history. When I was rescued, I was very skinny and had dermatitis. Now I’m a big chonky boy with a beautiful shiny coat. I am potty trained and kennel trained. I do well out of a kennel and sleep on my foster mom’s bed at night. I also haven’t gotten in any trouble while my foster mom is at work so am not required to be kenneled unless you prefer. I promise to let you know if Zeus and I plan any adventures or decide we want to cause any ruckus. We really mostly just like to lay around and think about how lucky we are to be in a loving home. I would probably do better with bigger kids. Sometimes Zeus and I get a little excited and jump up on people. I could probably be trained not to jump but I would hate to knock any little kids down. I do weigh 55 solid pounds. People are just so exciting! Sometimes, I just want to get right in their face and give them kisses…they need to see how sweet I am right away, ya know? I really have shown no aggression at all to anyone, my bark may sound intimidating, but I just want your attention! I haven’t met a cat so I’m not sure how well I would do with them. Will you be Zeus and my forever home? I’ll take you on adventures, smell all the smells during our walks, cuddle while watching your favorite shows and you will get TWO new best friends at the same time. How cool is that? I am neutered, chipped and up to date on shots. I am currently fostered in Lincoln. You can adopt BOTH Jordan and Zeus for $450! We have had a generous supporter agree to pay for 1/2 of our adoption fee!! Apply for the dynamic duo at www.bassetandbeagle.org
Amazing Zeus!! - Fostered in Lincoln, NEMale Adult Beagle

My name is Zeus, but I don’t make it thunder or lightning. In fact, I’m not sure I even like thunder. I have a big name but am only 20 pounds. My foster mom says I’m a sweetheart. I’m an 8-year-old beagle mix that is bonded to the Amazing Jordan (pit bull mix). We really need to stay together as he is my best friend and comfort dog. We came to BBRH from a high kill shelter in Illinois and were strays before that so not much is known about our history. I love to cuddle with people and Jordan. Jordan is really the only big dog I seem to like. Other big dogs kinda scare me. He weighs about 50 lbs. Sometimes when I’m asleep and there is movement around me, I get scared because I forget I’m not out in the cold and wild anymore. I’m also not fond of being picked up and carried. I won’t hurt you, but I’ll be sure to tell you I don’t like it. I love to be outside! Jordan and I love to lay in the sun and catch some rays. You’ll want to make sure there’s no escape route out of the fence though. Sometimes I like to be sneaky. I also like to relax inside the house with my people. I am potty trained and kennel trained. I sleep on my foster mom’s bed, so I don’t need to be kenneled. My foster mom says I haven’t gotten into any trouble with Jordan while she is at work, so she lets us roam the house during the day. I do well with dogs my own size or smaller but would prefer a house without other large dogs-Jordan is enough for me. I am unsure if I have ever met a cat, so I don’t know how I feel about them. I would probably do better with bigger kids. Sometimes Jordan and I get a little excited and jump up on people. I could probably be trained not to jump but I would hate to knock any little kids down. I only weigh 20 pounds, but Jordan is pretty big. He is also pretty cool, so I tend to copy the things he does-even the naughty stuff, like jumping. My foster mom says I’m a pretty chill dog. I mostly like to lie around with her and watch the good shows on TV. I LOVE walks and I’ll tell you all about it on our journey. I do pretty well on a leash and with a harness. Will you take Jordan and I on all the adventures in your neighborhood? What could be better than one dog you say? How about TWO! I am neutered, chipped and up to date on shots. I am currently fostered in Lincoln. You can adopt BOTHboth Jordan and Zeus for $450! Apply for the dynamic duo at www.bassetandbeagle.org

Audi, when he came, was expected to be a hot rod of a dog because he was only a year old. That was a misconception! Don’t get me wrong, he likes to play but he is not hyper in the least. He’d rather cuddle a human. He is more hot stuff than a hot rod. Audi is….well…adorable. But what breed is he? Who can tell! He has perky ears and a fluffy tail. Is he part shepherd? But he’s all white. But wait, he has subtle spots of merle over his body. You can’t make it out in a photograph, but they are there. And that beautiful merle colored head. One of his eyes also has a tinge of blue at the edge. Is he part Aussi? But he is calm and attentive and not crazy hyper. He is just a “good boy” overall. He will appreciate spending time with you, doing doggie things at his doggie pace. He is a bit prey driven so no smaller animals please! He was found as a stray in southeast Nebraska and no owner came forward nor could be found. He is a “beagle not,” helping modify the unofficial mission statement of Basset & Beagle Rescue of the Heartland to bassets, beagles, and beyond. Audi is not crate trained but would probably do fine in a crate. He walks acceptably well on a leash; he doesn’t heel. He is house trained, using the doggie door at his foster home. He is neutered, chipped, up-to-date with his shots, has tested heartworm negative, and is on monthly heartworm preventative. He is fostered in southeast Nebraska, and his foster will travel to meet potential adopters. Audi is 50 lbs. If interested in adopting Audi please fill out the application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. His adoption fee iw $400.00

Augie here, I’m a 4-5 old Male Boxer Mix Puppy. I’m a big lover of all kinds, snuggles and big hugs are my fan favorites. I will try my best to race you to get on your lap before you can sit down and I usually always win. I’m starting to be adventurous and love to explore outdoors. I absolutely love to be held and belly rubs and kisses are a must. I’m still learning my legs and my mommy thinks I’m pretty funny when I run. I have clumsy legs that I’m still growing into and I have fun stumbling over them. I do have a cute bunny hop that I have figured out when I get super excited and want to play. If you are looking for a loving loyal boy then I’m the right boy for you. Augie is current on shots for his age, microchipped and neutered on Oct 10th. His adoption fee is $450.00. If interested in adopting Augie, please fill out the application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. Naps: Yes, Please! Preferably with you! Potty Training: Working on it and doing awesome. Crate Training: YES (Sleep 8pm to 7am) Get along great with other dogs: YES Get along great with Kids and Cats: Never met them but would love to play with them!

Barkley (Sir Barks-a-Lot) is a 5-year-old Tree Walker Coonhound who weighs roughly 68lbs, 40 of those pounds are legs. He has a goofy personality and loves to bounce around with toys and play outside. He is potty trained, fully vetted, and gets along well with kids and dogs. Barkley can be a bit bossy so will need an owner who can continue to work on him with appropriate boundaries. He likes to be near his humans and can assert himself with other dogs when near his humans. Working on appropriate reactions and boundaries is important for Barkley. He responds well to training and commands and is VERY food motivated. Like a typical hound he loves to use his voice when he is happy or excited. He will let you know when it is time for dinner or if a stranger is at the door. Barkley loves to lounge on the couch and prefers to sleep with his humans in bed. He walks great on a leash and loves his daily walks. Barkley will stop to check out the smells but is quickly redirected and back on track. He has a fair amount of energy so daily exercise is important for Barkley. He loves car rides and meeting new people. His current foster works from home so has not had to be in a kennel. He has been left out for short periods of time when running errands and away from home and he has done well with no issues. Barkley has a history of UTIs so requires a specialized diet with prescription food. If interestod in adopting Barkley, please fill out the application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. His adoption fee is $400.00

Carmel is a bit complicated. Let’s start with her positive traits: she is incredibly smart and very obedient. If you ask her to sit, she sits. If you ask her to do something, she understands and will obey. She has a knack for picking up new commands astonishingly fast. Carmel learned how to use the dog door within a few minutes of coming into her foster home, and she had the routine down within a day. She is very loving and eager to please, wanting nothing more than to be curled up next to her human. Carmel has been around lots of shoes and remotes and has never been tempted to use any of them as chew toys. She enjoys being active and gets super excited when the harness and leash come out. Her foster mom takes her to the dog park, where she can run freely and as fast as she can. She is wary of other dogs, especially large ones, so she stays on the small dog side of the park. She does not like prolonged interactions with other dogs. As long as they go on their way after a sniff or two, she will be fine. She also loves going for walks. As affectionate and loving as she is, Carmel is a very anxious, dominant little lady. It’s not hard to guess who the alpha and leader of the pack was in her previous home. She tried to dominate the resident dogs at first, one of which made it abundantly clear that she was the alpha. Carmel has not challenged her since then. The other resident dog does not challenge Carmel and chooses to keep her distance, but Carmel still feels the need to try to dominate this dog. She is doing much better, but a stern verbal reminder is sometimes necessary. Carmel was very food aggressive when she first came into her foster home but has shown vast improvement in this area. Carmel will need slow, intentional introductions to guests who enter her home. She has a fierce, high-pitched bark intended to put her people on alert. Carmel stands ready to defend her home and people. She did very well with children who were visiting once they were properly introduced. Although she is familiar with all the people who come and go from her foster home, she still sends a warning bark when anyone enters the front door. She will also alert her humans of deliveries. Carmel still needs work on jumping on people once she’s comfortable with them. She doesn't like to be picked up or held like a baby by anyone. Carmel is completely housebroken, spayed, and up to date on all her shots, and she takes a monthly heartworm/flea/tick preventative. If you’re still reading this and thinking Carmel doesn’t seem that complicated and you are up for the challenge, please apply for her – she needs you. She has the potential to be a great companion dog for someone who is willing to invest their heart and time in her. She is fostered in Kansas City, and her adoption fee is $400.00. You can apply for Carmel at www.bassetandbeagle.org.

It's not a bird, or a plane, or even a frog. It's just little old me, Underdog! I bet you've never met a dog with an alter ego. Now you can say you have, meet Underdog and his alter ego, Caruso. In case you're too young to remember, Underdog is a superhero with superpowers. Since this superhero is still a puppy (DOB 3/30/23), we're still learning about his superpowers, but this is what we know right now. 1. He can fly! Don't let his short legs fool you. There is no need for stairs. He can fly up, down, and all around. 2. He has a strong voice! He uses his voice to warn of dangerous things or let you know how to find him. 3. He loves everyone and everything! Now that you're aware of Underdog's superpowers, you might be wondering about his alter ego, Caruso. Caruso is 100% a lap dog! If you're sitting down, he'll be in your lap. If you're not available and someone else is sitting down, he'll be in their lap. He is not a fan of the kennel and will use Underdog's strong voice to let you know that the kennel is a very dangerous place. True to his nature of being a lap dog, he prefers to sleep on you (maybe on your head or across your neck, sometimes on your legs) and if you're lucky, he'll just snuggle in next to you. He loves to play with other dogs and can sometimes be a little overwhelming. He's come nose to nose with the kitties in his foster home through a baby gate and seems more interested in what they are instead of anything else. Caruso is potty trained when taken out on a schedule, but he hasn't figured out how to alert when he needs to go out. He's very curious and loves to explore his surroundings. Although he's still a puppy, he hasn't yet chewed on anything he shouldn't! Caruso will have had 2 sets of shots, be neutered and microchipped once it's time to go to his forever family. His adoption fee is $450 and he will be ready to go to his forever home on November 10th. If you're interested in adopting this amazing boy, get your applications in at Www.bassetandbeagle.org. before his foster mom has a change of heart and decides to keep him!

If you are looking for a sweet pup that loves carrying toys around, playing with other dogs, going for car rides, or just hanging out with you when you are watching TV or reading a book, Cassie is the pup for you! Cassie is a petite, 7-year-old, 22-pound sweetheart. Cassie has been in foster care with a house full of other beagles and cats! I do not know what her past exposure was to cats, but she has absolutely no interest in them. If one of the other dogs wants to play, Cassie is more than happy to fully participate. When she is done, she will curl up by your side to take a nap. Cassie does well on a leash and loves to go on adventures. She loves to see where she is going on car rides – trying to looking out the window as much as possible. Cassie is kennel trained. She will sleep with you, if possible, but if not, she is comfortable sleeping in her kennel. She is kenneled when the foster parent is at work or out of the house for an extended period of time. Cassie not super fond of the colder weather and in the mornings has to be heavily encouraged to go outside. Other than needing that cold weather encouragement, Cassie is house-trained. Cassie is also very quiet. She rarely barks and when she does it is usually because one of the other dogs has a toy that she wants. She would be a great apartment resident. She will need a secure yard with a secure fence. Cassie is not a dog that can be left outside unattended for very long. She has been known to wander if she gets the chance and on a couple of occasions has tried to dig her way out of the yard. A quick word from her foster parent and she stops. She is also very eager to check out what is outside the front door. It is best to keep a close on her whenever the front door is open to prevent her from checking it out in person. Cassie is spayed, chipped, heartworm negative and is on heartworm preventative, and is up to date with her shots. You can apply for Cassie at www.bassetandbeagle.org. Her adoption fee is $400.00

Chandler is your typical rambunctious puppy that just keeps on going and loves to play. He has a beagle appetite so if there is food or treats, look out! He loves people and to get in lots of snuggles (especially if ear massages are involved), kisses and playtime. He plays tug and wrestles with his brothers and loves toys and bones. He has not been exposed to cats yet. Chandler needs someone with patience that’s willing to work with him on his basic commands as he gets distracted easily since he really would rather be playing. Since he is a puppy, Chandler will need to be potty trained so you will need to teach him where to go and how to ask until he gets the hang of it. The current foster home has him and his brothers in a contained play area during the daytime where they can play. They have a large pee pad down and are learning to go outside to potty but sometimes they can’t wait. They have an open kennel in the pen that they use during the daytime to take naps and sleep in at night. If you are looking for a true beagle puppy that will need LOTS of attention and patience, Bing may be what you are looking for. He needs toys to keep him occupied, maybe a playmate and of course lots of snuggles and kisses from you. Chandler is microchipped, neutered, and has received his puppy shots. He is fostered in the Omaha area with an adoption fee of $450. If you have the love, time, and patience to watch him blossom into a loyal family member please apply at www.bassetandbeagle.com

Hi, My name is Chloe. I am a mix of Dachshund and Basset. I am looking for my forever home with a family. I get along with other dogs (my foster home has 3 beagles) Not sure about cats never been around them. I would do best in a home with younger dogs who want to play with me. I am very energetic and would love a family who will take me on walks or give me enrichment toys when its to cold outside to go for walks. I will need to have a fenced yard preferably a 6ft , as I love to run around the yard and play. Sudden movements scare me a bit, so I will do better with older kids over 15 or so. I really like women, and just need to trust the men in the home for me to feel safe and comforable. I am a bit shy when meeting new people, it takes me a while to feel comfortable around anyone. I am working on potty training also, and am getting the hang of it. We will need to continue to work on this. I love toys and hard dog bones to keep me busy. I will need continued leash work for walking. I am ready for a forever family! Chloe is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped. You can apply for her at www.bassetandbeagle.,org. Her adoption fee is 400.00

With the warmer weather starting, are you looking for a project? One that will give you extreme pleasure with each step forward? Meet Clyde Boudreaux. Clyde is a 25 lb, 6-year-old beagle that needs a lot of work. When he first came into rescue he was absolutely terrified of people and wouldn't leave his kennel and wouldn't eat. We have made a lot of exciting baby steps already, but he will be a long-term project. Is he still scared of people? Yes. Does he still have accidents in the house? Yes. BUT, he now leaves him kennel and will lay on the couch or dog bed. He is eating and will even take chicken from your hand (he loves chicken). He no longer runs for the hills when you approach (with slow steps or your back towards him). He will allow you to pet him but he's still not sure about it. He will go outside and come back in on his own (with an open door or a dog door so long as you don't watch him). Each one of these are huge steps that have caused me extreme pleasure to see, but I know that we can't be his forever home and he deserves his own family to take these steps with him. Of course, we will still love him as our own and we get excited for each new step until his family is found, but why wait? Clyde loves other dogs and is starting to figure out toys (squeaky toys in the middle of the night are the best)! Clyde is available for adoption and if he's a project you might be interested in, give him a chance to become the happy, secure, loved dog we know he can be. 'Life's biggest rewards come from the biggest challenges.' (Greg Behrendt) You can apply at www.bassetandbeagle.org. Clyde Boudreaux's adoption fee is $375. Clyde is up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped.

Weighing only 18 lbs, Collette is a small beagle with a huge capacity for love and affection. Collette came to rescue with one baby in tow and likely endured a lot during her 6-7 years of life. She is timid around new people and scares easily but once she knows she is safe, she will snuggle in close for lots of love! Collette will do best in a family that is willing to give her time to get comfortable and help her gain confidence in a new environment. Collette will seek out her kennel if anything makes her uncomfortable or nervous. Once she settles in, she will be a devoted companion and the apple of your eye! Collette will let you know when she needs to go outside. She prefers to be inside and will come back in the house as soon as she is done. Being outside for too long when it is not her choice makes her extremely nervous to the point where she will hide behind bushes or under the deck in the farthest corner she can find. Collette likes to be in the same room that the rest of the dogs and the people are in. She will make herself comfortable, either on a bed, in her crate or next to you, if possible, and will sleep until you move. Collette is housebroken, crate trained, and walks well on leash. She is great with other dogs and cats. Small children make her very nervous and she may do best in an adult only home. Colette has a complete cataract in her right eye. This may never require surgery as her left eye is still completely normal. She will need to continue to see a specialist to monitor the progression and will need prescription eye drops for the remainder of her life. Currently, she gets one drop in one eye once a day. She is used to getting the drop and it is very easy to administer. The eyedrops are estimated to cost between $9-36/month depending on the pharmacy used. Collette has had surgery to remove mammary tumors. The biopsy on these tumors was benign but it's possible that more tumors could develop later in life which may require additional biopsy. Collette is spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots and ready to find a place to call home! To adopt Collette, please fill out the application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. Her adoption fee is $400.

Diego is a medium sized, male beagle, weighing in at about 23 pounds. Although his first years of life were spent mostly in a kennel, he is really enjoying having the run of the house. Diego is shy to say the least, he is very cautious of new sounds, new people and new dogs that come and go from his environment. He may jump and startle easier than other dogs but will at the same time come and be by his quiet human. He seems to be quite afraid of men so a quiet, women only home will be best for him. Diego will do best in a quieter home. When things are quiet and predictable, he will come and join us on the couch, lying near or right by us. Diego does enjoy affection but nothing too quick, just nice slow movements. Since Diego is so shy in the house and fenced in yard, we have not been on any long leash walks. Therefore a secure fenced in back yard will be a requirement for him. It will take more time for him to be comfortable before exploring the neighborhood on leash. He is VERY scared of a leash right now. He would be good with a non-dominant dog since he is too shy to be around any dominant dog. Diego has all his shots; he is neutered and chipped and ready to be your best buddy. Diego has been around children and is fine with them if they are quiet. Any fast or loud movements will send Diego to his kennel or favorite hiding spot. He is just learning that people, especially women, can be wonderful and just needs more time than most to be comfortable. Diego has recently started playing with toys, which is so fun to watch. He watched the other dogs play with them and is now tossing and enjoying them himself. Diego really needs you, your love and patience to live a perfect doggy life. Diego is okay in the kennel but has free run of the house as he is well behaved. He is getting used to a doggy door to go outside and potty, but will need continued work on this. Diego’s adoption fee is $400.00. You can apply for him at www.bassetandbeagle.org.

Meet Dodger! He is a happy guy older gentleman looking for a semi-active home to retire to. He may be a senior but he still has a heck of a lot of spunk left in him! Young beagles like to bark? Dodger does too! He likes to bark at the rabbits and people outside the window - but it really is an adorable bark ❤️. Dodger’s leash manners are a work in process. He pulls a bit, and he is definitely getting better every day! He has places to go and sniffs to sniff! He is getting better every day with his jumping up on people - he rarely does it now. He is potty trained and loves being outside and will need a fenced in yard. A 4-foot fence will be enough as he is older and not as spry as he used to be. He is learning his new name and is much better about coming when he is called. If Dodger doesn’t work, the word treat or bone works most of the time 😀. He goes into the kennel with ease and makes no noise at all!! He loves sleeping on the bed with his foster family but he would be ok in a kennel at night as well. He does like to chew up Kleenex 😀. If interested in Dodger please fill out the adoption application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. His adoption fee is $375.00

Got sheep? Good for you! Fancy may be a border collie, but she would rather curl up on an easy chair than dash and crouch in a pasture. Want a hyper puppy? Look elsewhere. Fancy may be only 10 months old but she is, for the most part, sedate and happy to be hanging in the house. That’s not to say she doesn’t have any pep. She shows her age on green grass in the sunshine. Here is a friend who will gaze at you with adoring eyes, who will curl up on your lap, who will follow you to the bathroom. Showing a sweet loving heart is what she does best. Fancy is a quiet little girl who rarely barks, doesn’t show much anxiety, and is not destructive when left uncrated. She will accept a crate, because she is submissive and wants to please, but it is not a safe place for her like it is with some dogs. Fancy does OK walking on a leash but it’s not her favorite thing. She does pretty good with potty training, but when she transitioned from one foster home to another, she took a day or so to make the transition. She seems to do best when taken out regularly rather than left to navigate the doggie door. She gets along with other dogs. In her household is another border collie, a large shepherd mix, a beagle, and a chihuahua. She mostly has eyes for humans, though. She is friendly but not greatly engaged. She hasn’t been around cats, nor has she experienced children yet. Fancy is UTD on shots, spayed and microchipped. If interested in adopting Fancy please apply at www.bassetandbeeagle.org. Her adoption fee is $400.00.

Finn is a tri-color male beagle who is approximately 1 year old. He was found wandering the streets, had a collar but no tag and no chip. He is lithe, well proportioned, very athletic and loves to run. Every morning, he hunts the yard looking for the opossum that like to sneaks in. He is constantly wanting to go out and explore and loves playing with the other dogs. I believe Finn was a family pet at one time since he knows commands such as sit, no, get down and go outside. He also knows how to fetch and return and will wear your arm out doing so. He does have a high-pitched bark and knows how to use it, usually when he is wanting to play with the cat or resident dogs. While Finn tries to play with the cats, he never attempts to harm them, just barks at them, they are just a fuzzy moving toy. With humans, he loves to cuddle and takes turns sleeping on the different human beds and particularly likes younger humans. Finn has boundless energy so he needs a home that will walk him, play with him and keep him active. I believe he would do great with a young family with young children. Bad things: Finn is a runner and bolted through the door one night. We found him ¼ mile away barking as he went. His barking can be loud and sometimes spontaneous. He does like to tear pieces of paper to shreds and last night, got hold of a full loaf of bread and ate it. He will jump up on you for attention. Good: As stated above, Finn is very much a people dog and wants your attention. At night, as he is settling in, will moan and groan before he goes to sleep. He is very affectionate and wants to be with you. He is a very handsome beagle, almost show quality. He is mostly potty trained. I have never seen him poop inside and only once caught him attempting to mark in the house. Finn is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on shots. If interested in Finn, please fill out the application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. His adoption fee is $400.00

Who's looking for the perfect dog? If that's you, then you must meet Frederick. Frederick is 2 years old and weighs 25 pounds. He's house broken and great with other dogs. He loves to play and run around with them. This sweet boy loves everyone, including the littlest tykes. He runs around the yard with his foster’s 1 year old grandson, giving kisses and looking for pets. He is interested in the foster kittens and wants to try to play with them, but as soon as they hiss, he backs away. The kittens in his foster home are only 2 months old, so he hasn't had a chance to really get close to them, but he play bows and stomps his feet trying to get them to play. You must be thinking that no dog is perfect, so what are his flaws? Frederick is not crate trained and will jump baby gates to get to you. Is that a flaw? We don't think so! He's never tried to jump his fosters' 4 foot chain link fence. Nor has he tried to climb or dig out. He sleeps all night in bed with his foster parents, either snuggled in close or under the covers, and only gets up when his foster mom gets up. He doesn't try to destroy anything when you leave the house, so is there really a need for kennels and gates? If you're not a fan of lap dogs, then you could consider that a flaw. Frederick loves to cuddle on your lap or right next to you if there's room. Frederick is still working on leash training and will try to pull, but with more work, we think he'll excel at this as well. Frederick is up to date on his vaccines, neutered, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $400, so if you're ready for an already perfect dog, look no further and apply for Frederick now at www.bassetandbeagle.org!

Say hi to Hughie, a 9-year-old, medium-sized beagle mix, weighing in at about 27 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his shots. Hughie is totally blind. He has been to the eye specialist and she said it is due to two different hereditary conditions and she recommends that we give him over-the-counter moisturizing eye drops once a day. Hughie has learned a few things during his time in foster care. The first week, he dragged a leash whenever he went outside. He would get turned around and unsure of how to get back to the door. Clapping would get his attention. He would look where the clapping was coming from and go straight to it. Then the leash guidance would get him the rest of the way. It took about a week for him to figure out the set up of the yard. No more leash dragging. Hughie loves having his head and neck scratched. When he hears fingers snapping, he goes right to the sound and knows it is time for lots of great attention. We also use it when he is in a new place. The sound reminds him that he is not alone and settles him. We are currently working on steps. Tapping on the next step so he knows if it is up or down. This one may take a while, but I know he will figure it out. Hughie loves to eat - breakfast, dinner and treats! To get him to the food, the bowl or treat is tapped on the floor. Hughie hones in on the sound and ends up right where the food is. Pretty quickly these days! Hughie is kenneled when I am at work and overnight. He is not eager to get in the kennel so I have to get him near enough for head scratches then eventually walk him into the kennel. He is settles in and falls asleep almost immediately once he is in the kennel. If I leave him out overnight, he tends to wander the house and sometimes gets turned around. And I have left him out when I leave for short periods of time and he has been fine. When Hughie is tired, he kennels himself. Hughie is 99% house trained. Occasionally, he will have an accident, but they are few and far between. Hughie does not get on the furniture. I have not encouraged it since he is blind and I am concerned that he will get turned around and fall off. He likes to put his head on the couch for me to scratch – all the time! Hughie is a great dog. He thrives on love and attention. He will have an adjustment period in a new home and will need time to figure out the lay of the house and yard. If interested in adopting Hughie, please fill out the application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. His adoption fee is $375.00.

"Oh whoa whoa whoa Jamie's cryin' " David Lee Roth once sang those famous lyrics but this Jamie is NO longer crying! Howling, yes! But she IS a basset after all! Jamie is now living her best life and looking for her forever home after years of raising puppies on the farm. Don't let this sugar face fool you, she is a young gal at heart with a BIG personality - she is incredibly sweet with a lot of spunk and a little bit of sass. I mean, she IS a basset hound, right? Jamie is adjusting to life in a house and ready for a quiet, relaxing place where she can spend time with her best human friend. She loves to play with her foster humans, explore the house and backyard (she is very curious!), and snuggle up on the couch. Because she has not spent much time in a house, she is working on potty training and stairs but is a very quick learner! She is also very good in the kennel and sleeps overnight without any accidents. Jamie is still a little unsure about her canine foster brother but is getting better each day with him. A fenced yard is a must! Jamie may do best in a home where she is by herself with her human(s) who can give her all the love and attention. As a mama to puppies for many years,she deserves it! She has not been around cats or small children so unsure how she would do with them. Jamie is heartworm negative and scheduled for a spay/dental on 12/7. She is approximately 6 years old and is microchipped. If interested in adopting Jamie

Meet Junior. He is a 1-1.5 year old male beagle mix. He was one of the Clinton 8, eight beagles we rescued from the Clinton, MO shelter. Most all of these dogs, including Junior, were dumped on the side of the road. This is where the shelter found them. Junior was and still is a little timid, but he continues to get more and more comfortable with his foster parents. He loves to play with other dogs, so his foster parents think he would do well with other dogs, but should be ok by himself as well. We don’t know how he would do with cats. His fosters think he would be ok around younger kids. Junior is still young and can be a chewer. Plenty of chew toys should solve this. He is house trained, but could have an accident or two transitioning to a new furever home. Junior hasn’t had much leash time, so he could use some training. He knows how to use a doggy door. He has been sleeping in a kennel overnight with his foster parents but would much rather sleep out in a doggy bed or with his new parents. He has been getting fed in a kennel, so no one else steals his food. A fenced in yard would nice for him since he loves to run and play outdoors, but not required. Junior is fully vetted, chipped, and neutered. He is fostered in Kansas City. His adoption fee is $400.00. You can apply for him at www.bassetandbeagle.org.

Meet Kalispell aka Kali aka Kali Belle. She’s one special pup. Kali is part of a select group known as Parvo Survivors. Luckily, we caught it early and she had a mild case. She came into rescue shy and anxious then had to be quarantined due to her diagnosis. She spent 2 weeks in the 'dog room'. The forced visits help make her much more comfortable with humans. She does get scared at any odd noise and when the other dogs bark at things. But she LOVES toys and ripping up cardboard (especially egg cartons) She now comes up for pets and sleeps at the end of the bed. In bed she wants ALL THE SNUGGLES. Recently Kali has been making strides towards being a self-confident dog. Sometimes with scared dogs, it is the little things that are most celebrated. Normally when I get up from my office chair, Kali runs into the other room. Today she watched me but stayed in her favorite bed. Kali is working on housebreaking and crate training. She is still so nervous around people she is hard to catch so we let her stay in the dog room when we are gone. She plays very well with our youngest dog and respects the older dogs. She is still on a probiotic to help her tummy and is doing well especially since we switched to adult food. I think she will always have a delicate tummy. She‘s still a puppy (8 months old and about 20 lbs) and has a long life ahead of her! If you are patient, she will make you a great and happy companion. Kali’s adoption fee is $400.00 and you can apply for her at www.bassetandbeagle.org. She is fully vetted and microchipped.

Lemon Drop - Fostered in KCFemale Adult Beagle

Hello, all of you wonderful, scary people! My name is Lemon Drop. I'm not just named that for my lemon color, I'm also a lot like a lemondrop candy, a little bitter until you get to the sweet candy center. I'm 4 years old and lived my life producing babies for a breeder before I was rescued. I haven't had a lot of experience with people but due to my sweet nature, I really want to like and trust people! The hardest part about being rescued isn't just all the people, it's all of the other odd experiences that I'm going through at the same time. Carpet, hardwood floors, tile, linoleum, grass, sand, dirt, gravel, it's all been new to my little feet. Then there are the weird noises. I've never heard so many different noises before. Sometimes just the sound of my nails on hard floors is scary. With that being said, I am learning that not everything is scary! For example, treats aren't scary! I'd never had a treat before, but my foster mom holds it out and patiently waits for me to smell it and take it. My pesky foster fur siblings aren't always as patient and try to snatch them for themselves! Foster mom must then move quickly, so no one else takes it, and that can be a little scary, too. I haven't gotten used to treats being tossed or rolled to me, I tend to run from them. Those little things can move fast. I'm also learning that I like pets. I'll run up to my foster mom and start licking her hand to let her know it's okay to pet me. She starts with chin scratches and slowly pets around my ears. I do really enjoy it. There is always a lot of commotion with all the foster fur siblings and this little thing, foster mom calls her grandson that moves around, so I have to be on my guard. I do find that when things get to be a little too much, I retreat to a kennel. I also sleep in one next to my foster mom's bed. Since I've been doing great on my potty training and using the doggie door, foster mom doesn't close me in the kennel when she leaves anymore. I still have a lot of learning to do and trust to build, but that can all happen with the right family to love me. Are you my forever family? Lemon Drop weighs 15 pounds, is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on preventatives. Unfortunately, Lemon Drop does have a genetic heart condition that will keep her on lifelong meds. Her medication is approximately $15 a month and will require yearly follow-ups with a cardiologist. The cardiologist say they can't guarantee anything, but they don’t believe it will shorten her life span. She does well with other dogs but can give a warning growl to correct them if they get in her face. She currently lives with 9 other dogs ranging in ages from senior to puppy. Lemon Drop has not yet met a cat, but with her temperament, it's guessed that she'd be fine with them. Her adoption fee is $400. If you're interested in meeting her or would like more information, please apply to adopt at Www.bassetandbeagle.org.

Meet Link. He is a young 1ish year-old male beagle mix with very soft bunny fur. He was found abandoned and in rough shape along with his sister, in southern Missouri. They were taken in by some friendly folks who worked to nurse them back to health and then contacted BBRH to help the pups get them into foster care. Sadly, Link’s sister didn’t survive. Link had some intestinal parasites, but he is doing very well now and enjoying becoming a house dog again in his foster home. He has learned to use a doggy door and is housebroken but could have a nervous pee accident if scared. He is an energetic and loves playing and running around the yard with other dogs. His foster parents think he would do very well with another dog around the same age group. He can still be a little scared with fast movements and is still working to be comfortable while sitting on your lap. He has not had a lot of time on the leash, but should learn quickly, he is very smart. A fenced yard would be nice for him since he loves to run and play outdoors, but not required. Link is fully vetted, chipped, and neutered. He is fostered in Kansas City. If interested in Link, please fill out the adoption application at www.bassetandbeagle.org. His adoption fee is $400.00.
