Our Rescued Basset Hounds

To save them from possible euthanasia at a shelter, we give basset hounds love and then share that unconditional love with those who really need visitors.
 
 
As of February 2003, five basset hounds lived here.  Soon after joining our family, the young ones took over visiting area nursing homes.  We let the older ones retire... for a while anyway.
 
 
 
Chandler and Molly are both now certified through Therapy Dogs Incorporated of Cheyenne, Wyoming.

November 21, 2003 was the day Chester came
south from Ocala to join our basset family.

Chucky (below) is closest to the breed standard of any hound who has ever lived with us.  See that big head and those huge wrinkled feet?

Then...  At the end of October, yet another big boy found his way to our house...  Matthew (red and white) took his place along side Chucky.  Together, these 2 became our Big Foot Boys...
