Martha and Albert

Sex: Martha – Female, lemon and white Albert – Male, tricolur

Health: Neutered, Vaccinated and Microchipped

Location: Cambridgeshire

Martha and Albert came to me mid-June.Although they both settled well on their first night, both hounds took time to adjust and settle in fully, both were as quiet as church mice for the first week,, but as soon as they found their feet, they found their voices.

Martha and Albert took no time to settle with my hounds, but they both took time before they started joining in the zoomies and games of bitey face. Martha is now very much the instigator of zoomies and rough play.Both Martha and Albert really enjoy their walks, Martha does like to keep looking back to check that I am in fact still there with her. They walk well on the lead and are happy to meet other dogs and people whilst out and about, they do sometimes get excited and pull to meet other dogs.

Both hounds travel very well in the car, they can and will jump into the boot but occasionally Martha needs lifting in.They are happy to go off in the car for long walks and pile in with my gang. 


Martha and Albert both sleep in the kitchen with my gang and settled at night straight away, they are both clean in the house, Martha does like to upturn the bed and sleep "camping style" underneath. Neither hound shows any sign of food guarding/aggression even with my dogs eagerly awaiting any possible leftovers. Both hounds were underweight when they came to me but are now healthy weights

Martha and Albert are happy, contented hounds and will make a wonderful loving characterful addition to their forever home.

Happy faces!


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.


Martha and Albert are 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 their foster home to meet them and their foster family.

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

Martha and Albert come with 5 weeks free insurance via our rehoming partner, Agria.
