Little Lila is a sweet and friendly 10 year old. The past few years have been pretty hard on
her. Her family moved and left her behind. She lived under their porch for 2 years. The
neighbors fed her but neglected to get her vet care.
Lila was rescued by GABR in January 2018. She was heart worm positive and diagnosed with
Cushings Disease. She’s finished the heart worm treatment and is now ready for her forever
home. She’s very friendly and outgoing. She enjoys walks and does not pull on leash. She
is playful and gets along with the other dogs in her foster home. She loves to chase squirrels.
Lila will enter a crate for a cookie. She’s doing very well with house training as well. Lila has
a bit of separation anxiety when her foster mom leaves. So a perfect home for her would be
someone who is retired or home a lot. Because of the Cushings, she has to potty more than
usual and will be on meds for the rest of her life. She feels good and is enjoying life now that
she has a soft bed at night and regular meals. She would love to be someone’s snuggle

Hi! My name is Martha and I am 4 years old. My other place used me for breeding so I didn't
get much socialization when I was young. I'm afraid of strangers and loud noises at first. I
am learning what it is like when people are nice to me. I get along just fine with the other
bassets that I live with. I am learning to play with toys, which seems like fun.
My foster family tells me what a good girl I am for working very hard on house training and I
am doing really well with it. I know how to use a doggy door. I'm not much of a barker, but I
do whine a little when my foster family leaves me in the house or goes outside. I'm learning
to walk on a leash and not be afraid of everything. It's hard, but I am doing my best.
I am looking for my forever home where people will be nice to me and love on me. I would
prefer a low activity household because quick movements and unknown noises scare me. I
am what they call a "blue Basset." Please consider adopting me. I am told that I am a very
sweet and good girl!
Cleo is approximately 7 years old, and a real sweetheart. She's house trained, crate
trained, but crating isn't necessary. She gets along with all of the other dogs at her foster
home, and shows no interest in the resident cat.
Cleo does well with children, and has shown no aggression or possessiveness of any kind.
She LOVES treats and belly rubs, and will stake her claim on a portion of the sofa so that
she can hang out with you. If you're looking for a laid back basset, this is the girl for you.
Beware of this basset thief! She steals hearts everywhere she goes! Bella is 1 1/2 years old,
and a petite little 37 pound girl. She lost her eye due to a severe puncture wound that became
infected, and her eye ruptured, but it's not going to hold her back.
Bella is totally house trained, crate trained, and does well with other dogs, cats, and children of
all ages. She's shy meeting new people, but warms up very quickly. She loves to cuddle and
wants to curl up with her head on your shoulder for maximum ear rubs. She's just learning about
toys and treats, and has decided that she likes both.
That blue eyed stare just melts your heart.

Tex II is one of the breeder release dogs who needs a special home. He just turned 1 y/o and
he's afraid of loud noises and new situations. When he was first at his foster home, he wouldn't
go outside at all. He has improved in that respect. He goes outside with his foster siblings to do
his duties, but is not giving a signal yet as to when he has to go. He definitely will need a secure
fenced yard because if he is "spooked" he will try to get away and if there's a weakness in the
fence or latch, he'll be gone! Tex II will need to be supervised while outside, even with other
dogs. We suspect he's only been around other bassets.
Tex II gets along fine with other dogs and has been following the lead of an older female in his
foster home. He eats in his crate so that he gets all of his food. He is very submissive when it
comes to food, toys or treats. Tex II is not used to being walked on leash. At first it would be wise
to walk him INSIDE in the fenced yard to get him used to it. He will bond with his human
companion and loves to cuddle.
Tex II may always be hesitant to new surroundings and new people because of his beginnings,
but he can improve with patience, time and a lot of love.
