 "Beatrice is an amazing Basset. She has all the qualities of your typical Basset, but is also very 'trainable'. She can do rollover, sit, paw, turn around, and many other tricks - basically, she will do anything for a treat! She is good with her bedtime routine as she knows when she goes to bed, she gets her final treat of the day, so would often want us to 'put her to bed'.

Like most bassets, she is very food centric, and I did have to watch her while it was feeding time as she would gobble down her food and would always attempt to eat the other dogs food.

She loves attention and will follow you wherever you go. She does have slight separation anxiety, but we found that we could leave her at home for short periods of time, but I am not sure how she would be if she were left alone for the full day.

She loves her daily walks (as long as they are at her pace) and is always eager to say hello to the other dogs.

When she first arrived, she did try and dominate our Basset boy and would be a bit rough with play, but she quickly settled. I think she is used to being the centre of attention and being the only dog, but I do believe she would be good in both homes with other dogs or alone.

She is good with cats too, although out of excitement would run to greet my cat who would sometimes run off and she would chase him. When my cat stood his ground, Beatrice would simply say hello and then wander off.

We have loved having Queen B, as we affectionately call her, stay with us and I have no doubt she will bring much love and joy to her new forever home."


 Beatrice is looking for a home that includes the following;

  • Someone who is at home often.
  • A family willing to continue with her training around separation anxiety.
  • An active family, as Beatrice thoroughly enjoys her walks, and will need physical and mental stimulation.
  • Patience and time to spend with Beatrice in the crucial first few weeks as she adapts.

If you tick all the boxes above, and you feel you and your family are suitable to adopt Beatrice, please fill in our online Adoption Application: 



The Basset Rescue Network of Great Britain Adoption Application

Applications close on SATURDAY 5TH JUNE - we will aim to email you within two weeks of applications closing.

Please ensure you read our FAQ's before applying:



Here we will attempt to answer some of the more frequently asked questions about The Basset Rescue Network of Great Britain and adopting a Basset Hound.

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.


Beatrice is subject to an adoption fee and a successful home check. If your home check is successful, your family, including your resident hounds if you have them, 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 Beatrice'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.

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