Rescue Me ID: 14-10-08-00420Sadie (female)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Fun, cute, and friendly - yup, that about sums me up. My name is Sadie, and I'm a 4 month old hound mix pup who weighs 18 lbs. I'm a beautiful girl who loves to spread around a ton of love - not to mention typical puppy energy! My favorite things, you ask? Bouncing around giving kisses and then tumbling off to play certainly sound about right! I'm young, so I'm not yet housebroken, although I'm definitely a smart cookie, so I'm sure to catch on pretty quickly. Topping the list of wonderful things about me is that I get along great with everyone I meet, including other dogs and kids. And as an added bonus, I'm also spayed, microchipped, and ... (Read More)up to date on all vaccinations. If you'd like to add me to your family, I'd be happy to be your forever girl. My adoption fee is $375. (Less)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    To say the start of my life was rough is an understatement. When I was rescued by GSAR a few weeks ago, I had a chain so deeply embedded in my neck that it had to be cut off. While my rescuers cut it away and exposed the horrible open wound around my entire neck, I thanked them by kissing their faces, despite the pain I was experiencing. GSAR made sure my neck was stitched up and I was placed in a loving foster home who takes wonderful care of me. Now I am as good as new, and I'm really looking for a NY FOREVER OR FOSTER HOME where someone will show me what it feels like to be loved. I think I really deserve it, and my friends at GSAR ... (Read More)couldn't agree more! I'm really all you can ask for in a family dog. I'm fabulous with dogs of all sizes, so I'd love a home with a canine companion (or two). If not, don't worry - being the only dog won't be so bad. I'm sure I'll be very content to have all the love in the house sent my way. As far as the felines are concerned, I pretty much leave them alone in the house, but I'll definitely engage in a bit of chase if we're all outside and they're running (away from me or at me - doesn't matter.) It's all in good fun of course - I'm never looking to hurt anyone! I'm smart and already crate trained (which is pretty great since I lived on a chain outside up until now), and I'm working on becoming fully housebroken. I haven't been around kids very much, but my foster feels 99.9% sure that I will be great with them - she is going to take me on an adventure this weekend to met some. I can't wait. She says I'm just a friendly, goofy, playful little guy. Please help to make sure that the rest of my life makes up for the first few months! I promise I will be a loving and loyal friend. I'm neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations, and I'm happy to say that I'm now accepting applications for my potential family. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-26-00103Murphy (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    I was at the dog park with my German Shepherds this afternoon and a young man, Howard showed up with is two dogs. 'Murphy' part bulldog and part basset hound, and the families other rescue dog played with each other and with Howard. Murphy was an exceptionally nice looking dog, white with brown patches. I commented on how nice looking he was and the man (Howard) started crying. He said it was Murphy's last day. Howard was taking Murphy for one last trip to the dog park, then for an ice cream and then to the vet's to be put down. The dog had bit the family's young daughter and the girls mother is adamant Murphy has to go. The man said ... (Read More)the felt it was mainly his fault because he allowed his daughter (a toddler) to 'play' with Murphy and Howard was not paying attention. He said his daughter had grabbed Murphy, startling him. Howard did admit Murphy had bit two other adults when he was first rescued but that was several years ago and Howard believed it was due to Murphy being abused before Howard's family had rescued him. There had not been any problems until Murphy bit the daughter. Howard said he has been trying to find someone to take Murphy but he so far has been unable to find a home for him. Howard's wife feels bad about it but is adamant they can't risk a more serious situation happening again. My friend was with me with her border collies and we tried to come up with some ideas to save Murphy. Neither of us can take on another dog as we both work all day and Murphy is going to need someone with him, especially initially. I suggested he contact the Humane Society or the Broome County Dog Shelter, not necessarily to leave Murphy there but to at least get to buy some more time for Murphy. The man, Howard is very forthcoming about Murphy's past. Murphy needs to I have no idea if this is appropriate for me to be contacting your group but I have no idea what else to do. Ideally it would be great if you were able to tell me you knew of someone who could foster Murphy, but I realize that is a lot to ask for . What I am hoping is you can give me some advice what to do. It would be such a shame to have Murphy out down. He seems like such a nice dog both his physical appearance and his demeanor. If you can help I will contact Howard (Murphy's dad) and if you give me a way for him to contact you I will pass that info along. Or if you would rather speak directly to Howard I will provide you his contact information. Thank you so much for any information or suggestions you might have. I just can't get Murphy out of my mind. I hope we can help him!! My name is: Mark McGinley Phone (607-775-3021 most likely you will get my voice mail but I will return any calls). My e-mail is: Please give me some advice or direction! (Less)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I'm definitely one cool cat....or in this case, puppy! I'm a super chill and mellow boy who needs my forever home. My name is Mikey, and I'm pretty much a perfect puppy. I am about 4 months old and 18-20 lbs. My awesome NY foster says I am a total mush who follows people wherever they go. More notably, I'm am also a master cuddler - I love to fall asleep on your lap or shoulder, and I won't move until you get up. My wonderful foster says I am nice to all creatures I meet, canine and feline, and I also like kids. I'm definitely not the kind of pup who is going to be running around through your house all day. I'm more of a rest on the couch ... (Read More)and relax type of boy. Aren't all pups as gentle and sweet as me? My friends at GSAR say my amazingly calm personality definitely gives me the potential to be a therapy dog too! Definitely sounds cool to me! GSAR can't believe I'm still waiting for a forever home since it's not easy to find such an easygoing little pup. I think I'm just waiting for my perfect family to scoop me right up! Mikey is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on age appropriate vaccines. Our adoption fee is $375. If you are interested in adopting Mikey, please fill out an application at: (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-13-00227Gary (male)

Basset Hound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gary came to PMAR with bite marks on his body and a mandatory 6 month quarantine hold, he's now free, healthy and ready for a home of his own! Gary is sweet as sugar and a total a gentleman on the leash. On walks his basset hound ears catch the wind like a parachute and all you can do is smile at him. Gary can be dog selective, if you would like to adopt him we suggest a meet and greet with your other dog (should you have any!) Can you give him the second chance at life he so deserves? All of our animals are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, heartworm tested and treated if necessary. Vet references ... (Read More)are required and prior to adoption a home inspection will be conducted. Transport options available. Adoption fee applies. If interested go to for an application. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basset Hound in New York
    Basset Hound Dogs can make good pets in New York if they match your IifestyIe. The Basset Hound is an exceptionally gentle, friendly dog that makes a great family pet. Basset Hounds are great with children. They require some patience to housebreak. Basset Hounds can do tricks, especially for treats. If overfed, a Basset Hound can quickly put on weight which strains its legs. Basset Hounds need plenty of exercise to stay healthy, but should be discouraged from jumping so as not to stress their legs. Basset Hounds can live in an apartment but need long walks and opportunities to run and play.
