Do you have room in your life for the lovely Winnie?


AGE: 4 years old

SEX: Female

Location: Bradford area

Winnie is approximately three and a half to four years old according to our vet. She is spayed and vaccinations are up to date.

She has a beautiful sweet nature, delightful character. She loves her toys and plays constantly.

She loves walks be it up to the pub or a country romp. She is very strong on the lead so will not be able to be walked by children. 

She is fully housetrained she goes to the door when she needs to go. Usually after her breakfast and before bedtime for poops. She always takes a drink before she goes out for a wee.

She's affectionate and caring and very intelligent, she picks things up quickly. She loves being talked to, listening intently to every word you say.

She can easily be left up to three hours with no issues. She has her own beds, living room and bedroom, but, as with them all she prefers to be next to you on the couch but a no will stop her jumping up.

She has to sleep with her favourite toy which is her baby. 

She has absolutely no aggression with animals, people or children. She has no fear of anything which has its pros and cons.

She's in perfect health. Beautiful coat and the longest ears I've ever come across on a Basset. Everything is new to Winnie. Her life is just beginning and she is simply lovely.

Winnie has really settled being an only dog in the house, we are open to her having a resident playmate; but any resident dog must be at the meet and greet.

Winnie is looking for a home that includes the following;

  • Someone who is at home more often than not and prepared to put in the time to help Winnie settle and learn further
  • A home with an understanding resident dog, or no resident dog
  • An active family, as Winnie loves long walks, and needs physical and mental stimulation
  • Patience and time to spend with Winnie in the crucial first few weeks as she adapts
  • We do not adopt to households with children under the age of 5
  • Applications close at 7pm on Sunday 23rd January 2022

Taking on a rescue dog is not the easy option. You need to be prepared to help a confused and troubled hound find their place in your family. They have been through a massive upheaval and will need time to settle into a new way of life, so please consider this BEFORE you fill in an application.


Winnie is subject to an adoption fee and a successful home check. If your home check is successful, your family, including any resident hounds, will need to be able to travel to her foster home to meet her and her foster family.

You will also have a telephone call with a member of the team, plus Winnie's foster family, so that all of her history can be shared with you in person, and that we can be assured that you can fill all of her needs and requirements.

Winnie comes with 5 weeks free insurance via our rehoming partner, Agria.

Thank you for reading Winnie's blog. Please share where you are able.
