Winston came to us from the Fort Mac fires and found his new home  where he fills the empty spot left by his new moms previous Bassert.

Little Alice was 6 months old when we were contacted by a vet clinic. She had been dropped off at the clinic as the owners no longer wanted her as she peed in rthe house..

Well the foster home fell in love with her and so goes another foster failure :)

She now lives with another Basset (Lucinda)her family adopted from us. 

This lovely little senior came to us along with Daryl from Inuvik. She was lucky to be scooped up quickly by a wonderful home to love out her retirement years.

Daryl came to us from Inuvik he was barely fostered when the perfect home came available. Now Daryl is living the life with a little human sister all to his own.

Thanks to my past family for loving me as long as you did and then realizing that I may be better off in a new home... don't worry I am getting lots of love and attention!


Can you believe it a sweet little gal like 8 month old Trixie had to go through 4 homes before coming to Basset Rescue where she finally found her 5th and final home with Holli & Daniel.

A quote from the wise father of his adoptive mom..."A Hound can't die from singing" So they are taking it Day by Day.
Congratulations Dale you deserve the best. Enjoy your new family and the felines too!


Lovely 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.


Lovely 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!

Buddy (Fudgie)

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.
Jim & Bernie are going to provide an awesome home for him and just in time for Christmas celebrations. Have fun on your Jasper holiday Buddy!

Harvey & Gertie

Harvey & Gertie are both settling into their new forever home in 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!


Continuing 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!

Sweet 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!
