We have been busy here at BRNGB over the last few weeks! We hope you have been enjoying the weather, it's been a bit hot for some of our hounds!
Here's a little round up of what's been happening, and things coming up in the next few months.
Martha is enjoying life on the Cornish beaches with the lovely Susan and Steve.
Henry found his forever home with Nick, and has a new basset brother George, who is also a BRNGB boy!
Lovely Hetti is settling very well with her new family, Sue and Dave.
Wonderful Wilson didn't even get past the first day without becoming a foster fail! He's found a lovely home with Pierina, John and family.
Our lovely Stanley was adopted to Lesley and her family.
Settling well in her new home in Berkshire with Lisa and Caine, is our lovely Rosie.
George and Henry
The beautiful boys George and Henry were adopted by Phillipa and Gareth, and have settled well into life in the Sussex countryside.
Smokie (was Harley)
Recently adopted by Zoe and her family, our lovely Smokie is having a ball in Cumbria!
Gorgeous Gordon was adopted by our lovely friend Rosie, who recently adopted Bella from us! Gordon is indeed a happy boy!
We are so pleased that these lucky hounds have found amazing forever homes! As always, we are indebted to our amazing team of fosterers, home checkers and transporters. Thank you all so very much!
We currently have 17 hounds in our foster system, with a few nearly ready to be rehomed.

A massive Well Done to three of our fearless skydivers, Natasha, Kane and Holly, who did their dive on Sunday! (The others, Sam, John and Heidi are due to do theirs this Sunday, weather permitting!) Thankfully, we are pleased to report that all went well and no injuries were sustained! A big thank you to them for putting themselves through this for us!
We'll have a total for you when everyone has done their skydive, so keep your eyes peeled!
End of Summer Garden Party
If you fancy a lovely relaxed garden party to end the summer with then look no further than Saturday September 9th at Houndy HQ in Newport. Further details will follow, but keep the date free!
As always we are on the lookout for people to join our dedicated team! Could this be you?
We require Fosterers to open their homes and make a basset sized space for a needy hound to spend a few weeks with them, could this be something you could do? We provide lots of support and back up, please get in touch here if you think this is something you'd like to become involved with.
Are you good at organising? Join us as a Fundraiser! Perhaps you could start small with a coffee morning to raise much needed funds for our hounds. We need fundraisers who have some spare time to organise some events for us. Could you be good at this, and would you like to come on board? If you have any ideas you'd like to share with us, please get in touch!
Thank you for your continued support. We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer, and hope to catch up with lots of you soon!
