LVBR currently has 17 bassets available for adoption. Click here to see more adoptable bassets.
Kirby (Y912), Age 9 years and 4 months
Kirby is a red and white Basset boy, approx. 9 years old. When Kirby first came to LVBR he had some lumps and bumps removed. He's healed nicely and is blooming in his foster home. What he needs now is a Forever Home. **We are working on an updated bio on Kirby to let folks know more about his personality and what he's looking for in a family. Also, we hope to have some updated photos to go along with it.** If you are interested in Kirby, please fill out the online application and tell us something about yourself. Thank you. His adoption fee will be $150.
Scout (Y910), Age 11 years and 11 months
Scout is a handsome, well-behaved, sociable, well-seasoned Basset Hound. He was unceremoniously left--filthy--at the shelter by his owners, who said they were moving. But LVBR stepped in to give this good looking fellow and chance at a better life. He went straight to one of our vets to have some lumps removed and a dental. Thought to be between 10 and 13 years old, but you'd never suspect it. His eyes are still bright and clear, and his lovely coat shows no signs of gray. Scout has a classic long-bodied basset style frame. He goes on for miles and miles! He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home. But, he needs to find his very own home to free up his current foster spot so other needy hounds can be helped. If you would like to adopt (or foster) Scout, please put in the online adoption application on our site. His adoption fee will be $150.
Stashu (Y902), Age 8 years and 7 months
Stashu came to LVBR after his dad became ill and passed away. Stashu had been his faithful companion since puppyhood. As you can imagine, he's now a sad Basset who needs a family to comfort and love him. Stashu is 65 lbs. of sweetness, a gentle soul. He weighs about 65 lbs., has wonderful house manners, and is a calm 8 years old. He enjoyed snuggling with his dad on the couch and would certainly love to do the same with you. He gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home and is still very playful. If you can help mend Stashu's broken--but still loving--heart, please put in the online application. He'll be waiting to meet you. His adoption fee will be $150.
Success stories will be returning soon. An update to our system is in progress which will hopefully allow us to provide current and past successes more efficiently. Please be patient with your humble webmistress.
