9 year old Gia lost the only home she ever knew through no fault of her own. She has been
through a lot but has come through everything with a smile on her sweet face and her tail
wagging! She loves to be where you are, and follows her foster Mom everywhere around the
house. She would make a wonderful companion, and is low maintenance. She is very friendly,
gets along great with the three other bassets in her foster home and is not food aggressive. She
would also be fine as an only dog, as she loves her human company. She does not like cats.
She knows how to use a doggie door, but sometimes prefers to bark at the door to let you know
she wants to go potty. She is fully house trained and crate trained, but a crate has not been
necessary, as she does not get into any trouble in the house.
Gia is an absolute sweetheart! She is calm and very affectionate, and is looking for her very own
forever home, and her own soft bed. She doesn’t ask for much, but does enjoy belly rubs and
being told she is a good girl! Do you have room in your heart and home for this sweet girl?

Jimmy was rescued from a kill shelter at the age of 2. He is now 9y/o and his owner passed away
and found himself at yet another shelter. This time he was lucky enough to have Guardian Angel
Basset Rescue come and rescue him.
When he got to his foster home, poor Jimmy was so sad and confused. But as he settles in he is
becoming more accustomed to his new surroundings and his personality is shining thru. It will
take a couple of weeks for him to adjust to his forever home as well. He is a little on the hefty
side and needs to lose a few pounds. He has been working on this by going on walks at his
foster home. He enjoys meeting the neighbors and other dogs and he greets everyone with a
wonderful basset bark.
Jimmy enjoys being outside and will be happy just to sit in the grass and watch the world go by.
He hasn’t shown much interest in toys or playing with his foster sibling. Jimmy has perfect
manners in the house, and will let you know when he needs to go out. He is a sweet dog that has
a lot of love to give and only asks for love in return and the occasional belly rubs. He will make a
great addition to a very lucky family.
Peanut is a healthy, energetic 3 1/2 year old big boy. He weighs in at around 65lbs., but isn't
fat by any means. His foster mom says his paws are the size of the entire palm of her hand.
He's house trained, crate trained, and is loving all of the attention he's getting with his
training sessions. Loves ear rubs, his new food, and LOVES treats and toys.
He gets along well with the other bassets, and medium sized dogs, but wouldn't recommend
him being placed with extremely small dogs. He doesn't get along well with cats, but does well
with children of all ages. Due to his size, and his youthful exuberance, his foster mom
wouldn't recommend him to a home with extremely small children, as he gets to playing and
could accidentally knock them down. He's doing well with his leash training, but definitely
needs a securely fenced in yard to play in. Peanut is looking for a forever home with hearts
big enough to hold this big boy.
Howdy, my name is Gordon.
I am a 10 year old boy originally from Texas.
My Dog Mom had died, and before I knew what was happening, I was placed in a shelter and
put up for adoption. I was so confused and upset, my whole world was turned upside down.
Then Guardian Angel heard about me and transported me, and two other Bassets, up to
Dwight. That was my lucky day.
I came in with skin problems from a flea infestation, and arthritis. But you should see me now,
I am so handsome!! I am house trained and crate trained, and get along with the other
bassets in the house, but I can get a little grouchy at times, sometimes those young ones can
be too active.
I am a little timid at first, and I prefer the ladies, both human and dog, and I love to follow my
Foster Mom all around the house, she gives me get great big hugs and I love it. My arthritis
has not been bothering me at all and it is great fun to run around the yard with my foster
brothers and sisters.
If you are looking to add a new member to your to family, I am your boy.
