Wyoming Basset Hound Rescue and Adoption

Bailey, at two years old. 




Dogs Available

(Dogs will go to approved homes only)




Over the past year, we have been placing 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.

Gypsy is a female bloodhound who just turned 3 years old in June. She weighs 90 pounds, has been spayed, is current on her vaccinations, is heartworm negative and is microchipped. Gypsy has had a litter of puppies in her past and she lived outside her entire life before coming into WBHR. She has been adjusting to being in a house and hasn’t had any accidents. Gypsy had a dental done, along with her spay, and had to have both upper canines removed, due to damage that caused them to start to deteriorate. It looks like she would chew on the fencing she was previously kept in. She is healing up and adjusting to her new life of being part of a family. Gypsy is very sweet and kind, she does well with other dogs, she LOVES cats and rides well in a car, although it is new to her and she is a bit stressed. She also does fine in a crate. Her foster home said she hasn’t barked once. Gypsy has been learning what walking on a leash is about, but she will need time to understand walks and not pulling. She is shy of a lot of things, but as she is getting socialized, she is coming around. If you would like to apply to adopt Gypsy,  please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application.


This is Chief, a 21 month-old male bloodhound, who came to WBHR because of needing a fenced yard. His nose gets the best of him! Chief weighs around 85#, is neutered, microchipped and current on his vaccinations. He is also housetrained and does well with other dogs and people. He is fine with cats, but will chase them if they run. Chief likes to play fetch and he is still very much a puppy. He will need a home with a strong leader and plenty of exercise. Chief would be best in a home with older kids, Middle School age or older. He can be possessive of toys at times, so we believe it would be best that he not be in a home with small children. He rides well in a car and likes meeting new people. If you would like to know more please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application.

This is Tessa, an approximately 3 year old female bloodhound. Tessa is spayed, is current on her vaccinations, is heartworm negative and is microchipped. Tessa is housetrained and weighs80 pounds. She has some basic manners; she knows ‘sit’ and is getting work on walking on a leash and is crate trained. She would be best as an only dog and in a home without children. A home that will provide a routine and structure with consistency, so she knows what to expect, will be best for her. Tessa loves to play with other dogs and daily exercise will be a benefit for her. She hasn’t shown signs of chewing anything and she has very rarely barked or howled. Tessa can be shy of new things and people and she has shown signs of guarding her resources; the vehicle she is riding in, water and food. Tessa is very playful and spunky. Being a scent hound, she loves to sniff everything and check out new places. She loves people and attention. Her only dislike is baths! If you would like more information please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application. Tessa is currently being fostered in Aurora, Colorado.


Bronco is in our "Forever Friend Foster" program. To learn more about this program click here.

Bronco is a Forever Foster. He came into WBHR on August 18, 2016 as an owner relinquishment. They stated he wasn't housetrained and therefore they kept him outside. They also thought he had an abscessed tooth, as he had a lump on his muzzle, towards the front of his mouth. So we took him to the vet, got him neutered, got him all his vaccinations, got him microchipped and got his teeth cleaned. Come to find out, Bronco didn't have an abscessed tooth, but an oral tumor. We had x-rays done and a biopsy sent to CSU to confirm his diagnosis. He has cancer. He's not even 2 years old yet. Bronco's vet bills have already amounted to over $1,100. He currently is feeling great and has become part of his foster family. Bronco is housetrained and has never had an accident since arriving at his foster home. You wouldn't even know he has cancer by how he acts. He acts like a normal dog at this point. If you'd like to help Bronco, please consider making a donation to WBHR for him. He will continue to be monitored and live out his life with his foster family. If you want to know more about our “Forever Friend” program, please click here.

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.
