Wyoming Basset Hound Rescue and Adoption

Bailey, at two years old. 




Dogs Available

(Dogs will go to approved homes only)
We adopt to homes in Wyoming and the surrounding states



We often place basset and bloodhounds in homes just as soon as we have taken them into our Rescue, before they ever make it onto our web site. We have people waiting to adopt and we have just needed to match them with the right dog for their home. If you would like to be considered for one of these dogs, please get on our Waiting List. Send us an email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com or fill out our adoption application and we will get the process going!


Have you been considering adopting, but just aren't sure. How about trying fostering? You can find out if a basset or bloodhound is the right breed for you and play a very important role in helping them finding their forever home. Please consider fostering.

 Video of Jack
Jack came into WBHR on January 12 as an owner relinquishment. A recent move to a much, much smaller yard wasnít working out for him and another dog in their family. Jack is 11 years old, current on his vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He is your average sized basset, weighing in at 58 pounds. The video of him is after a much needed bath! Jack does well riding in a car, is good with kids and other dogs. At a recent trip to the vet clinic, he could care less about their office cat, who sauntered past him. Jack sleeps all night, uses a dog door, but doesnít let you know when he needs to go out if you donít have a dog door. He will bark at the door bell and also when he thinks you need to pay more attention to him. He and the other dog at his foster home patrol the backyard for squirrels and anything else that doesnít belong. Jack is a good boy and loves attention. If you want to know how to adopt Jack, please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application.



Dolce came into WBHR on December 26, 2018, due to her owner passing away. She is spayed and current on her vaccinations. Dolce recently saw an eye specialist and she has mini cataracts dotted on both eyes. The eye doctor said itís comparable to if you have water spots on your glasses. That is what she sees. She also cannot focus very well on things that move quickly into her line of vision. At the eye doctorís recommendation, Dolce is taking an antioxidant and an omega 3 supplement. She is also taking one for her joints. Due to the condition of her eyes, Dolce is guessed to be possibly around 15 years old. Her previous owner took her in as an unclaimed stray, back in 2013 and at that time, she was guessed to be 8 years old. Dolce is great with other dogs and all people. She is doing very well with the other two dogs in her foster home. Dolce is a quiet and loving girl. She is a smaller basset, as she weighs just under 40 pounds. She is housetrained and loves being outside. Dolce does not like riding in a car, so it would be best she go to a home that doesnít travel a lot. If you would like to know how to adopt Dolce, please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application


If you are interested in adopting one of these dogs, please contact person listed with the dog. or you may email us at wybassetrescue@gmail.com .  Receiving materials from us does not obligate you in any way.  We do try to  match dog and owner, so you may be on a waiting list until a good match for you comes along.  All dogs are or will be neutered, we do not place dogs for breeding purposes.  We ask that you keep the dog in a fenced area (Bassets and Blood Hounds like to track scents, and then get lost), provide adequate medical care, and sign an adoption paper at the time of adoption.  If the adoption does not work for whatever reason, we do ask that the dog be returned to Basset Rescue and we will place the dog in another home.  There will be an adoption fee to be collected at the time of adoption.
