Basset Hounds

My family is considering adopting a Basset Hound. We would prefer to adopt a mature dog. Are there any recommendations for Basset Rescues in this area? Thanks, Laurel

Here's the Web site for the Northern California Basset Hound Club: Bay
I just did a quick Google search and found several in CA by putting in ''bassett hound rescue california''. You should check out the websites--they have really cute pics of all the available dogs! The No. Cal. # is 707-765-2690 (Gloria Carlson). It is also worth checking the SF SPCA and other shelters in case one has been put up for adoption. Also check with A.R.F. and other rescue organizations. Good luck--you are doing a great thing by rescuing rather than buying! Tracy
