Guardian Angel Basset Rescue
Harry is a 10 y/o owner surrender. They had no time to take care of him. He gets along fine
with his foster sister...just an occasional growl over a treat or toy, but none with humans. He
would not be good with small children, but older kids are ok.
Harry is house trained and barks when he has to go out. He’s good on leash and will not pull
you down on walks. A crate is not necessary, but set up your garbage cans when left alone!
When vetted, Harry had a dental and surgery to remove 3 benign masses plus has some
arthritis. He’s on Dasequin and feels much more active, but still shouldn’t be in a home with a
lot of stairs.
Harry would be fine as an only dog who gets all the attention.
Boone is only 2 y/o and has already had two owners. The first one bought him from a breeder
as a puppy and then left him on the farm when they moved. The second owner who moved to
the farm found out it also included Boone. They didn’t have him long when he got a hold of
some food he wasn’t supposed to have and they went to grab it out of his mouth and he bit
them. They took him to a shelter to be euthanized but the shelter workers saw no aggression
and called us.
Boone’s foster home has also had their challenges when he gets a hold of something he
shouldn’t have, like toothpaste. After weeks of starting from scratch and taking the advice of
trainers, we feel Boone is ready to find his forever home. Anyone seriously interested in
Boone will also have to start from scratch and earn his trust.
Boone is so sweet and adorable in every other way. He loves to play with the other dogs AND
cats! He’s active and would definitely benefit from obedience classes. He’s housetrained,
crate trained, plus he sits straight up to get treats! His possessiveness can be worked
through with a patient and consistent owner.
Opal is a 5 year old that was used for breeding. She came to GABR with no socialization,
but is learning what it means to be cared for and loved.
Opal loves to be with other dogs, and her perfect family would have several Bassets. She
has no aggressions, but is extremely timid. She will need time to settle in and feel
comfortable in her new home. Opal does not like to be crated, except at mealtime, when
she will run to her crate to eat. Opal is not a barker, but she has not fully mastered her
house training skills.
Opal enjoys children, but is still fearful of men.
If you have the time and patience to allow Opal to feel safe, Opal is worth the effort and she
would love a family of her very own.
