Forever Home Dreams Come True at ABC Adoption Event

Eleven homeless Bassets found their forever homes and families at ABC’s Adoption Event on August 12 at Camp Bow Wow, Rochester, NY.  Many were Southern rescues transported to NY by wonderful ABC road warriors.  It is heart warming to read the many Southern foster home comments on FaceBook following their fosters progress as they journeyed North and were adopted.  These loving Basset folk provided warm, safe havens for these homeless hounds while they searched for their forever families.

Following is the hit parade of adopted Bassets with more adoptions to come.  Currently there are about a dozen wonderful hounds still available for adoption.  Check them out on the Available Bassets tab of the ABC website.  If your family is searching for the perfect addition to bring joy and love to your home fill out an ABC Adoption Application.

Congratulations to sweet Seymour and his new family of humans and two Basset siblings!  Two year old Seymour was one of the TX 6 that arrived on the June 16 transport from a neglectful backyard breeder in TX.  He was malnourished and in rough shape but has flourished in his loving foster home.  Thanks to his new family for having room in their hearts and home for one more Basset – you can never have too many!  We wish you many happy, joyful years with sweet Seymour!

Five year old Roane was sprung from a TN kill shelter in the nick of time by Southern rescue. Thank goodness they found him and pulled him. He is such a sweet boy in the prime of life and his foster Mom just fell in love with him. Congratulations to Roane and his new family – we wish you many joyful years with this sweet boy!

It’s just so wonderful to see Flash adopted into a loving family – we fell in love with him on his transport and wanted to bring him home!  He is a wonderful personality and very smart.  We are so glad to hear he is no longer homeless.  Many thanks to ABC for taking him in and to his wonderful foster family.

Congratulations to Flash and his new family – we wish you many happy years with this devoted, handsome boy.

Vixen is a four year old beautiful girl who was originally a Las Vegas rescue! Somehow she found her way into Southern Rescue and travelled all the way North with ABC to find Sean, her new forever Dad and a new sibling! Congratulations to Vixen and Sean – we wish you many wonderful times ahead!

Cleo and her brother Coy are beautiful four year olds that were turned into a shelter.  Carolinas Basset Rescue sprung them and sent them North to ABC.  Congratulations to Cleo and her new family – enjoy this beautiful Basset girl!

Bentley is a wonderful, fun loving 9 month old Bassador – hard to believe someone would try to dump such a sweet boy.  Congratulations to Bentley, his new Mom and Dad, youngsters and sibling!  Looks like a match made in heaven!

Gump is a sweet eight month old puppy who was fostered by the wonderful Morrisons.  They said he is a typical puppy who loves to strew laundry around the yard and loves to shred paper but most of all he loves hugs.  Congratulations to Gump and his new family – we wish you loads of joy with this handsome, sweet boy!

Maggie is a beautiful six year old who came in to ABC as an owner relinquish.  Congratulations to Maggie and her new family – another match made in heaven by ABC!  We wish you many happy years together.

Cherry and Wynne are five year old puppy mill rescues.  Cherry is affectionate and sweet and beautiful.  It takes some very special homes to take in puppy mill dogs as they are usually very timid and unfamiliar with family life.  It takes a ton of patience and perseverance to socialize them to living with humans.  ABC’s wonderful foster families have worked with these two sisters for a long time and they have blossomed into beautiful companion dogs.  Congratulations to Cherry and her new family – we wish you many years of joyful affection together!

Beautiful seven year old Flannery was found as a stray in TN and travelled all the way to ABC to find her forever home.  Congratulations to Flannery and her new family – we wish you many healthy and happy years with this beautiful girl!

Max is a two year old Basset-Beagle mix who was rescued one day before his ‘to be destroyed’ date! Hard to believe someone could euthanize such a happy, healthy pup!  Many thanks to the TN rescue that pulled him and to ABC for bringing him North to the perfect forever home.  Bev and Paul are ABC rescuers extraordinaire who recently lost their beloved rescue Brutus to cancer.  Although heartbroken they felt that Brutus would want them to share their loving home with a homeless hound so they brought Max home – forever.  Bev posted on FB – ”Don’t hold the love that you have within yourself.  Give it to another like me and then I will live forever.  For love never really dies.” – A Dog.  Congratulations to Bev, Paul and Bella on their new addition and we wish you many, happy, healthy, joyful years with your new ‘addition’.  Keep us posted on Max’ progress and with pictures of the handsome boy and we’ll continue his story on the blog.
