Available Dogs

This is Arthur. He is an 8 year old, male Basset Hound.

Arthur is a real gem. He is a laid back, super nice basset hound. He enjoys playing with squeaky toys and going for rides in the truck. He also likes long walks in the park. He is crate trained. He knows basic commands, walks well on a leash and comes when called. He is well behaved and loves adults, but should not be in a home with children. He has some resource guarding issues of his bed/crate with other dogs. We think he would do best being the only dog in the house.

This is Jasper. He is a 1 year old, male.

If you are looking for a dog with an old soul, then Jasper is your boy! Jasper is about 1 year old and what we call a "bagel" which is a beagle and basset mix. He is a gentle, sweet and empathetic boy. He gives his very energetic foster sister a serious run for her money. He is all play outside, but inside he is all gentle man. He is crate trained, house trained and aside from the occasional sniff to the table...he stays low. He learned what cats are and now avoids them, so he doesn't get swatted again. He loves kids and plays with them gently. He has some trust issues however but once you show that you are not going to hurt him, and possibly are going to rub his belly, he is yours forever. If you are looking for a hound that loves everyone and only wants your love in return then Jasper is the fellow for you!! He would do best in a home with another dog to play with.

This is Bongo. He is a 5 year old male.

Bongo is well behaved and adjusted to his foster home and blended with his foster family quickly. He is house trained and gets on well with the dogs and cats. He really enjoys having another dog around. Bongo is uncomfortable around children and would do best in a calmer environment with no children. We were told that he has some food aggression with other dogs, but his foster mom has seen no aggression of any kind. He loves and bonds with his adult humans. He loves to be pampered and loves to have his ears massaged. Bongo dreams of being the king of his couch. He is never far from his Teddy bear.

This is Mickey. He is a 7 years old male Basset.

Mickey came to ABC from a shelter in Alabama. He had to have surgery on his foot to remove a lump and wore a cone on his trip up to NY. He has healed very well since then. He loves other dogs and even likes cats. He has impeccable manners and is great with young kids. He is very mellow and will make a wonderful companion to a very lucky family.

This is Lacey. She is a 10 year old female basset.

Lacey is a lovely senior who would prefer a quiet home. It may take her longer to adapt to a new environment. She is not a fan of children. She likes other dogs, but has shown some food aggression with her foster's bassets. She is fine with her adult humans. Lacey has loved being on the couch or her bed and is really a gentle soul; even after all she has been through. She seems to be house broken and has shown no real interest in cats, either. Even at her age she is a counter surfer and likes to see what’s going on up there. If you are looking for a senior in every sense of the word…Lacey may be the basset for you!!

This is Daisy. She is a 8 year old female basset.

Daisy is a wonderful girl. She loves people and other dogs. She doesn’t mind cats, but can not be in a house with kittens (or other small animals). She is housebroken and will tell you she has to go out; if no doggie door is available. She will steal food and does not enjoy giving it back once she stolen it. She can go upstairs but needs encouragement and/or help going back down. She is good on a leash and likes walks. Daisy does excellent on car rides. Her favorite place to sleep is any place soft and cozy. Belly rubs are her prime amusement. She is good getting her nails trimmed and ears cleaned. If you’re looking for a great dog, Daisy may be the one for you!!

This is Siphera. She is a 6 year old female basset mix. 

Siphera is a basset/boxer mix who comes to ABC from North Carolina. She made a grand enterence arriving in New York on an airplane with Pilots and Paws. Siphera is a very young 6 year old and has plenty of energy to play and/or go for walks, but also loves to lounge around “Basset Style”. She is great with other dogs and loves to run and play with her foster brothers and sisters. Her favorite toy are empty pop bottles. She doesn’t seem to mind cats very much. She is good with all people and loves to give as many kisses as she can. She will need to put on some weight as she is underweight right now, but the vet says she is a healthy dog. Even though she is only half basset, we think this is a good mix for someone looking for another family member.
