We Adopted 2 Bassets Within Three Months!
We were first blessed with Buttercup, our 7 year old Basset, when her family needed to move and couldn't take her with them. We weren't particularly looking for a Basset, but soon fell in love with the breed. We promised Butter's owners that we would take good care of her, as they did, and would most likely look into getting another dog as a companion.
I was online searching for information on the breed one night, when I came across the Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California. I soon found myself filling out an application and soon after that, we had a home visit from the organization. It felt very much like we were adopting a child!
Once we were approved, we were off to visit Ida in her foster home. Buttercup liked her instantly and it was a match! We left that day with a second Basset named Ida, also 7 years old. So, we now have two 7 year old Bassets we call, "the ladies." They are the joy of our family and we just love them!
