Happy Holidays

2015 has been a hugely successful year! Once again, we have surpassed our numbers from last year. Over 240 dogs have been rescued and placed into loving forever homes so far! We have so much gratitude for the dedication of our volunteers, transporters, foster homes, and adopters. We couldn’t do this without you!

Busy, busy, busy!

We have added almost 25 new foster homes to our family this year. Deanna has been busy coordinating fosters and keeping them stocked with supplies. Our geographical reach has expanded as well. Not only do we have fabulous fosters in Omaha and Kansas City but we have welcomed homes in both Springfield and St. Louis, MO. We can’t thank our foster homes enough for opening their hearts and homes to hounds in need!

Our network of transport volunteers also expanded! In 2015 we found ourselves being contacted about hounds in need from more states than ever. Dogs have travelled to us from as far away as Alabama, Arkansas, and Louisiana. This long distance travel requires an extensive amount of planning and a team of transporters. In addition to responding to daily requests to take dogs in need, Julie has taken on the responsibility of planning and monitoring these complicated transports.

In addition to our regular adoption events, we enjoyed hosting Souper Bingo in February and BBQ & Bingo in July – we hope you will be able to join us for these events again in 2016! Souper Bingo is scheduled for February 20th so SAVE THE DATE!  Stay tuned to our Facebook page to learn about these and other exciting events coming soon!

Perhaps some of the most exciting news of all in 2015 – BBRH celebrated our 10 YEAR anniversary! In October we gathered together friends and family of the rescue for a fun filled afternoon to help celebrate the milestone. A huge thank you to everyone who has made the past 10 years possible!

Looking Forward…

We are excited to see what the next 10 years brings for Basset and Beagle Rescue of the Heartland. The need for groups like BBRH is evidenced every day as we receive numerous requests to take in dogs for many different reasons. Sadly, there is no sign this will change any time soon. With your support we can continue to make a difference in the lives of countless dogs.

We know we are making a difference when we see happy endings like those of Porkchop. Porkchop came to us after living his entire life on a chain outside. He was heartworm positive, requiring expensive treatment, and had no idea how to live inside of a home. It took 14 months but Porkchop found his forever home in 2015! His new family adores him so much that he even has his own Facebook page.

Dog of the Month – December 2015

nosey 2Nosey isn’t nosey… well any more than any of our hounds. He’s our December Dog of the Month!

Nosey loves to play with toys, especially peanut butter filled kong toys, and loves kids. He will cuddle right up with you in the evenings, and keep you warm during the cold winter months.

He would do best in a home with another dog, to help him learn the ropes.

Check out Nosey’s bio to learn more!

Dog of the Month – November 2015

AngelOur November Dog of the Month, Angel, is full of wuv.

She wuvs to go for walks, wuvs to get in her kennel, wuvs to beg for food (you, seriously, are going to share that, right?!?!), and she will wuv you too!

Looking for a little extra wuv this holiday season? I mean come on… “I hate when people and animals wuv me lots.” said no one, ever.

Read Angel’s bio to find out more about this wuvable girl, and if you want to wuv her back, fill out our Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – October 2015

Well hello there 🙂
Welcome to our site. We’re glad you decided to stop in, and have a look around.
We know what you’re looking for though… candy.
Oh yes, it’s that time of year where we dress up and say, “trick or treat!” In the hopes that no one really wants to take us up on the “trick” option. We just want the candy lady, don’t get cute.
But all that sugar… it’s not good for you. May we suggest an alternate treat this year?

He’s sweet!
He’s handsome!
He’s Rusty! Our October Dog of the Month!
DSC_3382

Rusty would love to help you usher in fall, by taking long walks to look at the leaves, or sitting with you outside in the sun.

He loves people, but gets anxious around young children. Older children are fine, though.

So, what do you say? Skip the sweets and get years of love from this handsome guy? Sounds like a real treat! 😉

If you want to find out more about Rusty, you can check out his bio, or fill out an Adoption Application, today.

Dog of the Month – September 2015

Marti 1You know what’s great about fall, in the midwest? Walks! Nice long, strolls as the temps cool down, and the leaves begin to change colors. Walking in the fall is a great way to relieve stress and improve your health.

And of course our September Dog of the Month loves to take walks too! She’s Marti!

Marti is a smarty… pants! She knows how to sit, stay, and walks well on a leash. She does well with other dogs, kids, and cats.

When she’s not looking to get her walk on she likes to snuggle, or chill on her dog bed and chew on a bone.

So, check out her bio today! If you like walks too, and think she might make a great walking companion, you can fill out our Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – August 2015

Pending! Raider thinks he’s found that special family to call his own. Stay tuned for our September Dog of the Month!

raiderofthelostbarkIndiana: Give me the whip!

Raider: Throw me the treats. No time to argue! Throw me treats, I’ll throw you the whip!

Indiana throws the treats: Give me the whip!

Raider: OK, here you go! 🙂

It’s August. It’s hot! But our August Dog of the Month knows how to keep his cool, and won’t leave you hanging. He’s Raider! If there’s adventure to be had, he will be at your side. However, snuggling and watching some TV would be fine too.

Great with kids and other dogs; Raider would be a great addition to any family. He does have ninja-esk ups. So, a 6 foot fence will be needed.

Want to find out more about Raider? Don’t fear! The quest for his bio is short. Here’s the link! If you know you’ll need a more loyal guide than Satipo, you can go ahead and fill out our Adoption Application. You’ll have a lot of fond memories of this dog to be sure 🙂

Dog of the Month – July 2015

laci01_150503Our Dog of the Month for July, is Laci!

As you can see she’s ready to take center stage, and shine as the true star that she is.

Laci came into rescue after her family developed severe allergies, and could no longer keep her. Both they and Laci were devastated. With some love (and treats) Laci has learned to adjust to her foster home, but now she’s looking for her Forever Home!

Laci is housebroken and crate trained. She does well with other dogs, and kids of all sizes. Laci also loves to play and snuggle (but who doesn’t? Am I right!).

If you want to find out more about Laci you can check out her bio. Can’t say no to that gorgeous face (it’s ok, we understand)? You can fill out an adoption application.

 

Dog of the Month – June 2015 (Take 2)

Hey everybody! It’s June, and that means it’s time for a new Dog of th… wait a second. I feel like we already did this. If we didn’t already do this then why are we just now posting the June Dog of the Month, on the eighth? I’m pretty sure I can still count (1, 2, 3, 4 being too much, and 5 being right out!). Ok, so that seems fine. Hmmm…

Oh, I know! Pink our first June Dog of the Month got adopted! YEA! And it’s still early! So, this month you’re getting two, two, two Dogs of the Month for the price of one! You had better act now because this guy is going fast… errr… as fast as his short little legs will carry him!

dennis02_150530He is Dennis! Dennis is a bassador (basset, labrador mix; think big head, tiny arms :0).

He loves to play fetch, and gets along well with other dogs and kids. Not so much with cats.

If you think you might have a spot in your home, and heart, for this happy, energetic guy, fill out our Adoption Application today. You can check out his bio, or find out about becoming a foster home for BBRH.

Dog of the Month – June 2015

pink 3Our June Dog of the Month is Pink! (And that’s not just the color of her tongue 😉

Pink just got done giving birth to seven puppies in March. The puppies have been adopted out (puppies never stay long with us), and Pink has been improved so that this puppy thing doesn’t happen again. However, now she just needs someone to love her forever! It is not too much to ask, is it?

Pink loves to play with other dogs and kids, have her belly rubbed, and sleep in bed with her foster Mom & Dad. She will need a 6 foot fence, as 4 feet can not contain her (she has serious ups!).

If you would like to give this momma all the lovin’ she deserves, then you can fill out an Adoption Application. To find out more about Pink, check out her Bio Page.

Dog of the Month – May 2015

April showers bring May flowers… and a new Dog of the Month! For the month of May our pup is George!

george03_150128

Ahhwww… George’s foster mom likes to call him Georgio because he is so handsome. We certaigeorge01_150128nly agree.

George loves to play, especially tug-o-war. He is great with other dogs, and does well with people too. Just not kids. He is house trained and kennel trained, as well.

If your jungle err house, could use a little George, you can fill out an Adoption Application for him today! If you want to learn more about George, check out his bio.

Dog of the Month – March 2015

It’s March. Spring is just around the corner and we’ve got an adorable, bonded pair as our Dogs of the Month!archie_and_eddie03_141217

Edith and Archie love hanging out with their people. Cuddling on the couch, or going for walks. They do just fine on a double lead.

When they came into rescue they had those nasty heartwormies. But they continue to improve with treatment. Update: Edith and Archie are now heartworm free!

If your looking to start the new season off with a couple of awesome new family members you can fill out an Adoption Application. Want to find out more about Archie and Edith? Then check out their bio.

Dog of the Month – February 2015

Our Dog of the Month for February is a whole lot of basset! With some lab thrown into the mix. Meet Theodore!

theodore01_150201

 

Look at those big puppy dog eyes! He’s saying, “Seriously Mom? Is this all the food I get? I said I wanted all the food.”

Theodore (Theo for short) is a little over a year old, and 45 lbs. He is a typical, energetic young dog who would like to find an energetic family to keep up with him.

He loves treats, and walks, and definitely both at once. However, he does not like cats. So, a cat free home is preferred.

If you would like to find out more about Theo, you can check out his Bio. Or if you just can’t resist those puppy eyes you can fill out our Adoption Application.

And as always we are looking for volunteers to help foster wonderful dogs like Theodore. Click here to find out about becoming a BBRH Foster Family!

 

Dog of the Month – January 2015

Whoa! Ummm… where did 2014 go? We feel like it was just here, a moment ago. Then, BAM! It’s gone, like a squirrel on a fence post when it catches sight of a beagle tearing through the yard, right at it. Run squirrel, run! He’s going to get you! Haha 🙂

What? You don’t have a dog to chase squirrels out of your yard? You home is defenseless against the squirrel army? Oh no! Red! You are needed, and therefore will be our January Dog of the Month.

red04_140718

 

Red is one smart pup. He will be sure to protect your house from squirrelly-squirrels, wascally wabbits, and other villainous varmints.

When he’s not searching the back yard for the scents of trouble, he loves to go for car rides, and walks. If he is ready to go for a walk, he knows to get his leash. Like we said, smarty-pants!

If you want to find out more about Red, check out his Bio. If you are interested in adopting him, you can review our Adoption Policies, including our Adoption Application.

As always, if you can’t adopt one of our pups, consider Fostering a dog, or Donating to support our rescue efforts.

Dog of the Month – December 2014

During the holidays there’s always room for more. More guests, more food, and more giving. Here at BBRH we thought why not more dogs? Yes, we do always think, “why not more dogs,” but we digress.

For our December Dog of the Month were doubling up with brothers Brando (left) and Winston (right)!

brando05_141128 winston02_141130

These pups are the last two from our parvo litter, from August. They really only have one thing on their wish list, and that is a forever home to call their very own.

If you would like to make their wish come true you can fill out an Adoption Application for one, or both, of these adorable dogs! Want to find out more about them? Click on their names (above) to view their bios.

If you can’t adopt, you can still help BBRH this holiday season by Donating or by Fostering!

Dog of the Month – October 2014

porkchop02_140820Everyone say hello to Porkchop, our October 2014 Dog of the Month.

Porkchop loves to be a goof. Start scratching his back, and you will soon find him rolling over for some good ol’ belly scratching.porkchop01_140820

He spent the first few years of his life, unloved and left out on a chain, where he contracted heartworms. Our great volunteer foster is now teaching him the love of a caring home and he has been heartworm free now for several months. Due to his history he loves to stay right with you (who doesn’t love a puppy shadow).

Porkchop would love to find his furever home. If you have space in your heart, and home, for one very loving dog, then check out Porkchop’s bio, or fill out an adoption application for him now.

Dog of the Month – September 2014

jalepenojack02_140905Our Dog of the Month for September is Jalapeno Jack!

jalepenojack06_140905Jalapeno, JJ, or just Jack is known for his love of all things fun. Fetching is fun. Running around the yard is fun. Belly rubs are super fun! People are awesome! He loves people of all sizes.

He loves other dogs, and does fine with cats.  As long as they don’t try to run away all the time. If they are running, I’m chasing! Oh, oh! Chase me next! Jack just loves to play.

Jack’s foster family is working on his manners and tricks. He is learning to walk on a leash, and to not jump up on people when he meets them (for the first or tenth time).

If you want to find out more about Jack, the spicy jalapeno, read his BIO. Or if that smile is already too much for you, fill out an Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – August 2014

In August, in the Midwest, normally it’s hotter than… well… A lot of other places! That can make you dream of cool ocean breezes. The wind in your hair, fresh air, salt spraying against your face. But you’re from the midwest! You don’t know how to sail! You need a real sailor to help get you where you’re going.

That’s where our Dog of the Month, Sailor, can help. Just listen to this song she wrote you, to get you in the mood to Come Sail Away.

I’m cuddling away, set an open course for the couch and TV
I’ve got to be free, free to face this life with my forever family
BBRH calls me Sailor, life shouldn’t be hard
We’ll search for bunny rabbits in every yard
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try… to cuddle on!

They said come take me home, come take me home
come take me home with you!
come take me home, come take me home
come take me home with you!

 Do you want an angel to sail away with? Find out more about Sailor, in her profile, or you can fill out an Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – July 2014

Our July 2014 Dog of the Month is the snuggle-buddy extraordinaire himself, Bodey!

bodey01_140512Bodey loves the outdoors. Walking, playing in the back yard, lounging in the sun, are his kind of activities.

When he’s inside he loves to curl up on the couch with his foster family and soak up the love.

You can find out more about Bodey, here, in his profile, or you can fill out an Adoption Application today.

Dog of the Month – June 2014

We here at BBRH know that a lot of times people want dogs who are energetic, but not too energetic.  You want them to curl up with you on the couch, but never leaving the couch isn’t what you’re looking for either. In a word… a Goldilocks dog.

buddy01_140607Well if Buddy, our June 2014 Dog of the Month, met Goldilocks he would probably like her just fine!  He might like the bears, even. If they are nice to him.

 

Buddy does well with other dogs.  He loves to romp and play.  However, he also loves to cuddle up with you on the couch. buddy03_140511He is crate trained, house broken, and knows some basic commands.

 

You have kids, you say? Buddy loves kids! He would be great in a house with some children to run around with. He is just a fun loving, easy going guy. Just look at that smile.

You can find out more about Buddy, here, in his profile.  Already seen everything you need to see? Then why wait? You can fill out an Adoption Application today.

Dog of the Month – May 2014

mac07_130922Bunnies beware, because Mac is our May Dog of the Month.

mac06_130922When Mac isn’t busy protecting his foster house from squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, and any other small critters who think they can muscle in on his territory, he likes to chew on bones, and play! He does very well with people, big and small, and gets along fine with cats.

Mac also likes to keep his trick repertoire polished by practicing his sit, down, off, and the ever important army crawl (vital to small animal home protection). He would be a great dog for agility training as he is smart and energetic.

You can find out more about Mac, here, in his profile.  If you just can’t resist that face (believe me, we understand) you can fill out an Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – April 2014

jackson06_140227

For April our Dog of the Month is Jackson!

Jackson is a bassador (basset/lab mix) who does great with other dogs.  He loves to go for walks, and is learning all sorts of new tricks like sit, stay, kennel, and leave it.

jackson01_140227

Being a lab mix, Jackson is very energetic.  So, he would like to find a forever home with people just as active as he is.

You can find out more about Jackson, here, in his profile.  Or if you want to open your home to a loving puppy, you can fill out our Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – March 2014

lucyethyl02_140220

For the month of March we have two great Dogs of the Month, Lucy and Ethel!

We are Lucy and Ethel. We are about 2 years old and looking for our forever home together. When we first come to your home we will be a little shy and jumpy, but once we get to know you we will both want to sit in your lap and cuddle all evening while watching TV. We do great on leashes and do pretty well with come, sit, and stay. We normally are pretty quiet, but we will let you know if there is somebody at the door! We do great with other dogs small and large, but we are not too fond of cats, so a cat free home would be wonderful. We love playing out in the yard and just sitting together watching the squirrels jump between the trees. We do well with children that are old enough to know that we are a little scared of new people.

ethyl05_140220We are both crate trained, in fact we like our crate so much we often just hang out in there together.  Also, we are potty trained; however, when we first come in to our new home we may have a few scared piddles on the floor. We promise it will only be until we get used to our new surroundings.

Lucy and Ethel love each other so much that they will need to be adopted together. We’re adopting out the Red Sisters at a 2-for-1 price of $200 for both of them.lucy04_131121

You can check out Lucy or Ethel‘s profiles.  If you would like to adopt these sisters you can fill out our Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – January 2014

tilda02_130618

With a new year brings a new Dog of the Month.  This month our featured pooch is Tilda (a.k.a. Tilly)!

Wait a second… That’s not a beagle, or a basset.

Nope!  Tilda is a lab mix.  She was in line to take a long walk off a short pier, in a high-kill shelter. 🙁  We just couldn’t let that happen!  We are glad, once again, that we are terrible at saying no, because Tilda is a great dog.

Tilly’s signature feature is lopsided ears.  The one just doesn’t want to stay up, or the other just won’t lie down.  We’re not sure which, but it sure makes her cute!

Her foster mom is working on her training, and she doesn’t jump, knows sit, and can shake.  Tilly is very smart.  She also likes getting her ears scratched, hugs, and loves people!  She doesn’t know you yet, but she loves you already ;).

Tilda does well with her foster siblings, but some dogs she just doesn’t like.tilda04_130618

So, fill out an Adoption Application for Tilly today! Or if you want to find out more about her, check out her full profile.

Dog of the Month – November 2013

sallymay04_131112Sally May is a 13 yr old beagle. She’s fostered in Omaha NE and has been in our rescue for 3 years. You would never know she’s 13 though, because she loves to take you for your walk!! It’s her favorite thing to do.

After her power walk, she’s ready for napping the afternoon away. The sun spot is where she tends to lay, or in her doggie bed that she cuddles up in. Sally May is kennel trained, potty trained, and just wants a comfortable spot to spend her senior years. As long as you like to go for walks and wont forget to feed her – she’s your girl!!

So, fill out an Adoption Application for Sally May today! Or if you want to find out more about her, check out her full profile.

Dog of the Month – October 2013

img_a1745599aa1As we usher in another fall season, we look forward to cooler daytime temperatures, and chilly nights.  You know, now that I mention it, you look cold.

“I actually feel pretty comfortable,” you say.

No, you’re definitely very chilly.  I know just what you need!

“What?” you inquire

andy02_130514

An adorable beagle/basset mix to cuddle with you and keep you warm!  (You know I’m right.) And we here at BBRH have just the one for you…  Meet Andy!

Andy loves to cuddle up at night, and would be a great companion to help you stay warm this fall, and winter.

He is a little shy at first, and can find new people and places scary.  But with a little love (How could you not love that face?) he will come around, and be a loyal, long time companion.

So, fill out an Adoption Application for Andy today! Or if you want to find out more about him, check out his full profile.

Dog of the Month – September 2013

boo05_130516

Boo Bear went to his forever home today.  Yea!  Stay tuned for our October DotM.

Knock Knock
Who’s there?
Boo
Boo who?
Don’t cry… because Boo Bear is our September Dog of the Month!

Hi, my name is Boo Bear. I’m a gentle bear, though! I will melt your heart with my sweet smile, calm demeanor, and fantastic manners.  I am a five year old male Beagle/Aussie Sheppard mix.

Foster mom and dad say I’m the biggest love bug. I will sit with you for hours on the couch and watch baseball, game show network, and even reality T.V.! I LOVE to be petted. I am a good boy in my kennel, when you are gone during the day, and I even come when called at night to sleep in the kennel in the bedroom.

boo09_130516

I’m potty trained and walk great on a leash. I play well with my foster sister and brother; however, I love all the attention so I would be a good dog all by myself. I would love to come home and live with you!!

So, fill out an Adoption Application for Boo Bear today.  Do you want to find out more about Boo Bear? Then check out his full profile.

Dog of the Month – August 2013

rielyrae03_130808August means back to school, an end to summer, and a new Dog of the Month!  This month we’re highlighting Riley Rae!

Riley Rae is an approximately 6 year old beagle, who was rescued from a puppy mill. She was very shy when she first entered foster care.  She is now much more comfortable around people, but is still a little hesitant when she first meets you.

Good with other dogs, and children (just not really young children), Riley Rae would make a great addition to most any household.  As a bonus, do you have a bunny problem in your backyard?  If so, Riley Rae would love to help you with that!  She will chase them, too and fro, ensuring they skedaddle immediately.*

So, fill out an Adoption Application for Riley Rae today.  Do you want to find out more about Riley Rae? Then check out her full profile.

* Actual results may vary.  BBRH does not guarantee a reduction in the population of bunnies, squirrels  birds, chipmunks  voles, moles, gophers, or any other small animals.  Beagle effectiveness varies from dog to dog.  In non-scientific studies beagles caught small animals, in the backyard of the tester, 0.5% of the time.

Dog of the Month – July 2013 (Take 2)

For the second month in a row we have adopted out our Dog of the Month!

Which means… yep, you guessed it… We get to have another Dog of the Month.  Our pup for the latter half of the month is Champ.

champ05_130706

 

Um… Champ?  Cha-mp… Wake up buddy.  You’re on!  Everyone is ready to see you… Champ?

Well, doggy naps are serious business here, and you know what they say about sleeping rescue dogs… That’s right, you should rub their bellies.

When Champ isn’t perfecting the art of relaxation you can find him being the perfect dog.  He is a Beagle/German Sheppard mix (we think).  He’s recently learned shake and roll over.  He gets along great with other dogs, and loves people.  We mean REALLY loves people!  You won’t be able to resist the urge to love on him, and he will call you out if you don’t stop to say hello.

champ01_130706So, what are you waiting for?  Fill out an Adoption Application for Champ today, right now… Why are you still reading this?  Go!  Or to find out more about Champ check out his full profile.

Dog of the Month – July 2013

bubba02_130520Everyone say hello to Bubba, our July Dog of the Month!

 

Bubba came to us after his owner passed away.  They unfortunately had no plan for someone to take Bubba.  It’s important to consider your furry family members in your estate planning.  bubba04_130520Bubba was at a shelter for a while before we picked him up, and was very scared.

Now that he is in foster care he is much happier, but nothing would make him more happy than for a loving family to take him in and give him the love and attention he deserves, and needs.  He loves raw hides, walks, and enjoys having a little quiet time in his crate to relax.

Check out his profile, or fill out an Adoption Application today.

Dog of the Month – June 2013

bailey04_130502We know it’s not June quite yet.  But Brooklyn, our May DotM, was adopted.  Yea!

So, say hello, or if you’re a dog who can read say woof, to Bailey, our June 2013 Dog of the Month!

Bailey loves walks.  She does well chewing on bones, or elk antlers (as opposed to your shoes).  She loves people, and will give you kisses if you let her, or if you let your guard down 😉

Check out her profile, or fill out an Adoption Application today.

Dog of the Month – May 2013

brooklyn03_130329Say hello to Brooklyn, our May 2013 Dog of the Month!

From Brooklyn’s foster mom, “Words can’t describe how sweet she is. She loves other dogs and especially kids. She has been around kids as young as 18 months and was very gentle and cautious with them.  She enjoys being outside and will just play and lay in the yard for hours…”

Dog of the Month – April 2013

nelson02_130402Meet Nelson

Our April 2013 Dog of the Month

 

Poor Nelson can’t help himself.  He has serious ups! (That means he can jump high for those not familiar with leaping beagle jargon.) For this reason Nelson is looking for a forever home with a 6-foot privacy fence.

Check out his profile, or if you want a beagle, and can handle the fence requirement, then skip right on over to the Adoption Application.

Dog of the Month – March 2013

honeybee01_130312 Honey BEEEEEEeeeeee!

She is an adorable Lab/Collie mix (What would that be Labrollie, Collidore, eh I dunno…). She is a puppy, and full of energy, but still loves to cuddle it up!  Would she be a welcome addition to your family?

Check out her profile, or don’t delay (Procrastination makes you deaf.  I’m pretty sure I heard that somewhere.) fill out an Adoption Application now!
