Louie 2011

Our adorable Basset named Louie came to us just last month. We can see why they named him King Louie because of his regal like cloak around his neck. To us, he is the most gorgeous boy ever! We had prayed for the right dog for us and us for him and our prayers have come true, more then we could have dreamed. Louie fits in our family like he has always been ours. We are a close family and if anyone leaves the house, Louie misses them and gives them lots of love when they return. He loves his bone and likes to hide it in various places in the house. He is adorable when we watch him use blankets and pillows to make himself a "bed." Louie loves walks at least four times a day and he is really good for baths too. He has the deepest hound bark we ever heard and it's music to our ears. Louie loves to "wrestle" and chew on stuffed animals too. It is cute seeing all of the stuffed animals on the floor, like there is a baby in the house. Everyone in our famiily loves Louie and Louie loves all of us. We are most grateful to the Golden Gate Bassett Rescue and the volunteers and foster parents that bring Bassets home! Thank you!

Lucy

Miss Lucy Lou is doing great! She has become an integral member of the family – participating in Sophia’s make believe games, hanging out with our cat Mimi Molly and quick to snuggle whenever possible. We’ve had a lot of fun in the last few weeks going to the beach, taking walks through the neighborhood and just lounging around the house. It is like she has been with us for years, especially when she and Mimi answers the door together when we come home. Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect match for our family! We are forever grateful!

Luna
Luna

Hi GGBR, This is long overdue, it is just today that I really had a chance to write and read all the updates. We adopted Luna about 4-5 years ago? My husband was very much against the idea, but I have always wanted a Basset Hound since I was a child. So despite it all, I went ahead and got Luna after 2 months of waiting, which I believe was just the perfect time. She immediately became my husbands dog and loyal partner. She follows him everywhere he goes which would always mean tripping over her or stepping on her cute big paws. Luna is very loyal and her temperament with our 3 kids is perfect, and she is the queen of our home. Potty issues are forever an issue, but ofcourse, daddy lets her get away with it! Luna enjoys her daily walks and has shown alot of positive behaviors eversince we have taken her consistently. Luna has truly completed our home. She is now 8 yrs. old and continues to rule the house. We just love hearing the sound of her nails as she comes greet us at the door. And her thunderous barks whenever the mail is being dropped off. Thank you for allowing us to adopt Luna, she truly is a remarkable pet and we love having her in our life and home.
