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.

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.

Hey everybody, my name is Bella! Iím a 11 month old, ~75lb bloodhound who is really wanting a new home that understands my breed. Iíve been in one home before my current foster home and I am learning more and more about people every day. Iím still a puppy and with that, plus being a bloodhound, Iím a busy girl! I am spayed, current on my vaccinations and microchipped. Iím also housetrained and I havenít chewed on anything I wasnít supposed to. I like everyone Iíve met, but my foster Mom thinks I would be best in a home with maybe just one other dog. Iíve been getting more socialized and trying to understand this whole new world Iím finding out about. I also love the young man at my foster home and I canít wait for him to come home every day. We hang out together and have a great time. Did I mention that I love to play ball? Not just like, but LOVE! I overheard my foster Mom telling someone about it being my favorite activity. We play in the morning, a little around noon and then more before crashing for the night. Maybe you all know more about the saying that Ďa tired dog is a good dogí? Iíd love a home with older kids. Iím working on not jumping when I get excited. Iíve heard my foster Mom talking that I might be best around the bigger people and no real little ones, what with my size and activity level. I met what I thought was the biggest dog in the world, but it was a horse. Whew, that was an experience! As Iím slowly being introduced to new things, Iím gaining confidence. Iím a bit shy at first, but am learning that there sure are a lot of great new things to be checked out. I really want to be part of a family and do things with them. If you think you might be a perfect match as my new family, 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.
