Out and about with the Bassets!

We've had a very busy week, and with lots more planned for the summer months ahead! 

National Pet Show - London

Last weekend, Sam, Louise and Sam spent two days in the Excel Centre, London, showing off our amazing breed at the National Pet Show! Penny, Ollie, Shirley and Carly were our companions for the weekend, and they were all superstars! We were joined on the Saturday with our great friends Genny and Debbie, with their hounds Cassie and Mabel. On the Sunday, we had the pleasure of the company of Michelle and Mark, with Barney and Bumble.


The dogs had an amazing time, lounging on their beds, being stroked, cuddled and mollycoddled by many, many people, we think we were one of the busiest stands! We certainly had the reputation as the most 'chilled' area of the show!


It's always wonderful to be able to speak to people about our wonderful breed, and to encourage others to allow a hound into their lives, we all know it's the best move we ever made!

It's an exhausting weekend, we were all completely shattered on the Sunday night, but it was a wonderful experience, and we will be looking forward to going back to Birmingham in November for the next one.

Recent Rehomes

We have celebrated three rehomes lately.



Norman has moved across county to Great Yarmouth, where he is settling well with Jayne and Paul.



Beautiful Pippa is having a wonderful time in Bedfordshire with Victoria and her family.



The lovely Alfie has gone to his perfect forever home with Val and Tony.

 At the moment we have 14 hounds in our foster system, with 3 more to come in soon. A big thank you to all our fosters, homecheckers and transporter teams who help make this happen.

Barry's Helping Paw Party

Sunday 4th June 12 noon.


You may remember Barry's party last year, where the gorgeous Barry started his Helping Paw Fund, to help hounds less fortunate than himself. Well, this year it's back and will be held again at The Chequer's Inn, Ledsham, near Wakefield. For details of the pub, click here

There will be a mini waddle to start, followed by the party back at the pub. We have half the amazing outside space reserved, which gives us plenty of space to mingle! It really was a fantastic day last year, and so worth the journey!

Please come along, dig deep and support us, whilst having lots of hound fun!

Ticket prices are £5 a family, with a tombola, cake sale, a raffle, quiz and party games! Plus, the pub serves fantastic food and drink!

If you can't join us, but would like to donate in a late hound's honor, please follow this link which will take you to our PayPal account. You can mark your payment "Barry".
