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.

Hey everybody, my nameís Toby! I just turned 8 weeks old. Iím told I was born on September 24th. My Mom is an Australian Cattle Dog and my Dad is a Beagle. My foster family says theyíre both on the smaller size, so they donít think Iíll get too big. I have had my first round of puppy shots and also was wormed. Iím not sure what that is, but the doctor I saw was really nice to me. I live in a really nice foster family now, with kids and other dogs. I try to get the other dogs to play with me, but theyíre not too impressed with my energy level. I have been working on my potty training and am doing pretty well! I also do great getting outside both using the steps off the deck and the ramp they have here. At night I sleep in bed with one of my dog friends and with a smaller human. Heís really nice, too. Theyíre taking really good care of me here, but I am looking for a family to call my own. If you would like to see if you can adopt me, please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application.



Layla is a redbone coonhound, who is about a year and a half old. She is spayed, microchipped, weighs between 42-45 pounds and is current on her vaccinations. An added bonus is that she house trained! Layla gets along great with other dogs, although she hasnít showed much interest in playing with them. She pays no attention to cats or livestock. Redbone coonhounds are hunting dogs and Layla loves to chase rabbits and she runs like the wind if not kept on a leash! She needs a fenced yard that is 6í wood or higher, as she can clear any chain link or wire fencing. She needs a home that has a lot of time and energy for training and to match her free spirit. WBHR will help with the cost of training. Layla rides well in a car and she is crate-trained. She likes sleeping in her crate, but can also be free to move around the house, as she is not destructive. She sleeps all night. Layla will make a great companion dog, as she loves to cuddle and be around people. Layla would benefit the best with a forever home who has redbone coonhound experience and knows their temperament and energy level. She requires daily exercise, via walks and swimming would be a good way to also let her get the activity her breed requires. Having a redbone coonhound in the past is not required for her adoption, but would be nice for her.

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.
