A slew of Bassets arrive from Georgia

This week a group from the Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia drove to Kentucky with a van full of bassets destined for New York. Here they are loading up the van.

Here are Roger and Josh ready to hit the road to meet Tom and Gary in Kentucky.
ABC volunteers met them to pick up the gang and start dropping them off at the adoptive and foster homes across New York.

Flint was destined for New York, while Buttermilk is hitching a ride north to House of Puddles, the famous Basset Retirement home!

Here are the other hounds all ready to hit the road to happiness!

The cuteypie Flint (2 years old) and his crooked leg were destined for a weekend getaway at my house.
He seems to be settling in just fine. He loves to play, get belly rubs and neck scratches, and is housetrained! I know he'll make some family very happy.

If you are interest in Flint, another Georgia Hound, or rescue in general, go to the ABC Website. Keep reading the blog for more on the hounds from Georgia!


  1. Hey! We live in Georgia with our 2 Bassetts. I work for a vet clinic down here and 4 of our staff has bassetts too! We didn't know the Georgia Rescue needed any help! Thanks for taking those cuties up there!

  2. We were fortunate enough to be adopted by Elton! It has been over two weeks now and it seems like he has been ours forever. He enjoys hanging with our other Basset - Summer. Summer came from Arkansas and adopted us in January. They both are very comical and have completely stolen our hearts! Thanks to ABC for all the great work you do for all the beautiful BASSETS!!!
