Congratulations Dale you deserve the best. Enjoy your new family and the felines too!
Stitch has found his new family here in Calgary - this boy has come a
long way from the sad, neglected, outdoor hound he was when Basset
Rescue Edmonton took him in and is now a lively, loving, mischeivous
basset hound. His new family consists of both 2 and 4 leggers to play
with and we know he's going to have a very happy life there.
gent Jackson has found his forever home with Kelly and his family in
Edmonton. He'll have 2 canine brothers (a lab and a collie-mix) to
play with, and will be heading out with his new dad on a daily basis
during the winter to go to work ploughing snow!!! Who'd have thought a
pooch from sunny Iowa would end up clearing the white stuff up north!
Enjoy your new life, sweet boy!
Look at Fudgie now!!!! After moving from home to home, he is finally all snug and warm in his new FOREVER home. This Jim & Bernie assured me the moment he set a paw in their home.

Harvey & Gertie

Edmonton. These lucky pooches get to spend their days on a farm with
their new family, and will have plenty of options to help other bassets
because their new mum, Gwen, is the organiser of the annual World
Basset Races, held to raise funds for Canadian Basset Rescue! Congrats
to these 2 pooches on their new family... we can't wait to see you at
the races next year!
the current trend, Maggie is also heading north to Edmonton to join her
new family - she's going to be spoiled rotten and given all the love
she could ever want by long-time basset lover Tom, along with his wife
and 2 daughters. Maggie was an owner relinquish whose previous family
didn't have time to spend with her - after being fostered for a short
time here in Cowtown she's finally off to her own digs to be get all
the attention she could ever want. Have a pawsome time, Maggie!
Cookies found her forever home in Edmonton with Bob & Stephanie.
She came in as an owner relinquish on Saturday morning and was one of
those adoptions that just fell into place perfectly; Bob and Stephanie
had been looking for the right hound to add to their family, and
Cookies just happened to become available on the day that they were due
to make a trip to visit friends in Calgary. It was love at first sight
and Cookies found herself on her way north to her new family. I think
this may have been the easiest adoption we've ever had!
