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.

Well, hi there! I'm Max, and I'm a 5 ½ year old basset hound-American bulldog cross. Yes, it's pretty unique, but so am I. I try to be regal and in control of everything, but somehow, it never quite works out. I really need to learn some basic manners, such as letting my human go first on walks, and that I don't belong IN the refrigerator or ON the table with my human, even though there's some great stuff there. I am completely potty trained, and I love to cuddle and sleep with you. You can even use me as a pillow if you want. Walks are awesome, as long as there are not too many surprises. I much prefer things to be predictable and low-key. Too many changes, and I get nervous and grumble, and growl, and I might even snap if I'm too scared. I love older kids (the more predictable ones), and I might just play with another dog as long as I've had time to get to know them. Cats are fascinating creatures, too, again once I get to know them. I'm just a big baby (58 lbs) who wants to be loved and treated like a puppy. I’ve been to the vet, another scary place, and have had all my vaccinations, a dental done, some lumps checked out, microchipped, heartworm tested and neutered. Whew, that was a lot and I’m sure glad that’s over! If you would like to find out more about me and how to adopt me, please contact Holly at (307)272-8089 or email at wybassetrescue@gmail.com  or click here to for our adoption application.


Lady is a three-year-old female bloodhound, who came into WBHR with her brother Jager, as an owner relinquishment. Their family needed to move and couldn’t have multiple dogs in a rental. Lady weighs about 70 pounds, is spayed, microchipped, current on her vaccinations, has had her teeth cleaned and heart worm negative. Lady came to us with her right eye blind. She underwent surgery on Monday, April 17th to have the eye removed as well as some of the extra loose skin over her other eye to help her see better. The surgery went well and Lady has recovered wonderfully. Lady would be best as an only dog, but she is very friendly with people. She also likes her crate, is housetrained and is doing well walking on leash. She is a very sweet girl.   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.


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.

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

I am SO happy to have a new home and what I’m told is my forever home! I’m Stella and I came into WBHR at the end of September, 2015 as a “Forever Friend”. The family who relinquished me stated me to be 14 years old, but the doctor I saw thought more around 9 or 10 years old. I feel so much better, as my teeth and ears were in really rough shape. I lost 37 of my 42 teeth! They either fell out or the doctor pulled them out. It really hurt for a while, but after medication and time, I feel much better than I did before getting them removed. I’m sort of a small girl they tell me, weighing just about 42 pounds. I am spayed, house trained and current on my vaccinations. I will stay with my current foster home and as a “Forever Friend” in WBHR’s system, but I still wanted to tell you my story and let you know that I’m well cared for and happy. I have many friends at the foster home, so I am never lonely either. 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.
