Email we just got from the Basset Rescue!!

Hi Abandoning Eden and B,

I have a great little Basset mix that I think would be a good fit for you. His name is Flash and he's about 2 years old. He's in a foster home and is a sweet, playful boy. He's housetrained (mostly), good with the cats in the foster home, not much of a barker, and is happy, happy, happy! He does chew so you'll need to crate him when you're away from home. I've attached a couple of photos and told the foster home that you'll be calling to get additional information: E is the foster "dad" and his number is xxx-xxx-xxxx. Let me know if you want to adopt Flash after you speak with E.

From petfinder:

Flash was saved from a life of being tied out by the side of a highway! Sweet and affectionate, he seems to know that he was saved and is a very grateful fellow. Flash is between 1 - 2 years old and has hard-to-find lemon and white Basset coloring. He's doing well in a foster home and gets along well with the other dogs in the home. His foster dad thinks that he's got lab in him because of his happy, playful, fun-loving personality. Flash is a sweet boy who would love to be your best friend.

He's a lemon bassador! We're calling tonight after we get home from work but unless "Housetrained(mostly)" means "pees all over everything constantly" I think this is our dog!


  1. What a cutie. Though watch out if he is a chewer.

  2. Oh, he's adorable, I love him already. I hope this works out. (He does seem to have an enormous male member!)

  3. ya! best wishes for him to be a good match for you guys.

  4. we're going to meet him and probably adopt him tomorrow morning!

  5. Yay! You can totally train him out of the peeing and chewing thing with a little patience and willingness to be strict in the beginning. Enjoy your new sweet little guy.

  6. How adorable! I found your blog searching for other basset rescue blogs. I myself own a lemon! they are adorable (but aren't they all!) and my personal favorite. Good luck with your houndy!
