Next weekend, the 6th and 7th May, Louise, Sam and Sam are spending the whole weekend in the Excel Centre in London, promoting our wonderful breed at the National Pet Show once again. It promises to be lots of fun, and we have our wonderful friends and supporters Genny, Elaine, Michelle and Mark helping us over the two days. If you are around on the weekend, please come and see us, it really is a wonderful day with lots to see and you get to cuddle lots of basset hounds, what more could you possibly want?

Keep your eyes peeled for a cool competition running this week, for your chance to win FREE ENTRY into the show itself!

Hounds available

We currently have 4 dogs that are actively looking for their new homes! Fagin in Newcastle, Louie in Suffolk, Martha in Lancashire and Henry in Mansfield. Please read their blogs and if possible share and tweet them too! We can all help a hound find a forever home, sometimes a share is all it takes! Follow the links below to access each blog.





Hounds rehomed

Over the last few weeks several houndies have found their forever homes! Here are the lucky few!



Beautiful Bertha has found her forever home with Elaine and her family in the West Country.

Mrs Potts


Our gorgeous Mrs Potts was rehomed by Rebecca and her family in Welwyn Garden City, who previously had our lovely Gertrude, who passed away a few months ago. We are so pleased that Mrs Potts has made the family smile again.



Dashing Darcy has found his happy place with Mandy and Trish on the South Coast and is having a wonderful life.

Hounds In

We currently have 8 hounds in our foster system at the moment, undergoing assessment.

May 13th 4:15 - 6:15 Action Petz Newport

Come and join in the madness as we once again meet in Action Petz (although this time it's a new venue!) There is a superb area for the dogs to play and run, with obstacles as well for the more active and agile houndies amongst us! There will be a raffle too! Please follow the link below to find out more details, or contact us here for further information.

Basset Hound Takeover


Unfortunately, the sponsored skydive that is for our Emergency Fund was cancelled once again yesterday! Pesky gusts of wind! We'll let you know of the new date as soon as we have one.


Do you have a wonderful idea that could raise some much needed funds for us?  Are you clever or crafty, perhaps you could make something that we could sell? Perhaps you fancy getting together with friends to hold a coffee morning or even a car boot sale? We are looking for all sorts of ideas to expand our fundraising for badly needed funds for our bassets in need. If you have any ideas, no matter how big or small, please contact us here and let us know!

Thanks for your continued support!
