Gilly #25 

Hello Everyone! My name is Gilly. I'm estimated to be around 11yrs old and I weigh 47lbs. My family adopted me 10 years ago in Missouri, but then decided they couldn't care for me anymore so they dropped me back at the shelter. Some very nice people brought me to Minnesota (it’s cold here!) and now I have a foster mom and a foster brother, a 10 year old basset hound. I’m not food aggressive, toy aggressive, or any kind of aggressive. I don’t even know what the word means! I like to go on walks and car rides. I’m getting up there in years but I still get around just fine.  I’m house-broken and I’m fine resting on the floor, but if you want to lift me onto the couch, I won’t complain about it! I don't even need to be kenneled when foster mom leaves. The doctors wants to check out some bumps and lumps on me, and clean my teeth. I’m also getting over a respiratory infection and an eye infection, so I’m not quite ready for my forever home just yet. But my foster mom will keep you updated on everything, so check back in to see how I’m doing!

5/18/18 Update: I had dental surgery last week and I did GREAT under anesthesia!  They removed the tumor on my cheek, the skin tag on my belly, and a small thing on my right tonsil, and all came back BENIGN!! 

6.27.18 Update: Whew – I am all through with dental surgeries! Sadly, I no longer have any teeth, but that doesn’t stop me from eating, no sir! Foster mom puts water on my food. So now we are down to dealing with that tumor on my bum. 

I'm finally ready for my furever home! Do you have room at your house for a kind old guy like me?  


Layla #31

Layla is a very sweet gentle Basset Hound Poodle mix. We estimate her to be around 9 years old. She gets along great with the six other hounds at her foster home. She likes to “tell” the deer, turkeys and squirrels outside in the backyard that she’s watching them. She tends to be a very mellow, easy dog to have around. She will be sure to greet you with a wagging tail when you get home. Layla would prefer a home with little to no stairs. She does have some issues with her back legs being a bit stiff. After her haircut at Spring Fling she now prefers the dogs beds, so it seems she was getting a little warm so regular grooming will be important for her. She has a hard time with hard food and treats so softened food and treats would be her preference. If you’d like a sweet mellow lady as a companion Layla is your gal!


Lucky #39

Hi, my name is Lucky and I think I am a sweet distinguished lady, about 11 years old. I was adopted recently from a shelter but my new mom became sick so I came to MNBR.

My new favorite place is the porch where I have started my own Neighborhood Watch. So if you come ‘round, I will have to notify everyone, but then we will be friends. I am quite spry for my age, and can zoom up and down stairs, over obstacles and onto furniture. I love my walks but the car makes me nervous so foster mom is helping me out with that. I would love to meet you soon and become a part of your family. I tend to chase most cats so I should probably be in a non-cat home, but a dog sibling or two would be awesome!

You can come to a MNBR event if you like, or if you just can’t wait, contact the rescue and we can meet up!


dodger #45  **ADOPTION PENDING**

My name is Dodger and the vet says I am 1 ½ to 2 years old but leans more towards 1 ½. I weigh 15 pounds and that is all the bigger I will be, altho the vet says a few more pounds wouldn’t hurt. I think I may have had my own family at one time in Oklahoma because my foster mom says I have very good bathroom habits and a beautiful coat. I haven’t used their house as my bathroom since I got here. I’m probably a beagle/dachshund mix. I’m too long for a beagle and too tall for a dachshund and I have a beagle voice (no southern accent) but I don’t use it often.

I have a kennel that I stay in when no one is home because I still get into things like the paper in the recycle bin. I do use my beagle voice for the first few minutes I have to go in there but I’m easily distracted by the toys that Foster Mom puts in there and I’m still quiet when she gets home. Because I’m a good boy I get to sleep in her bed at night.

I live with 5 other dogs and I like them a lot. But I like to chase the 4 pound chihuahua and make her scream so it is probably best if I don’t live with real little dogs. I don’t know what a cat is so I don’t know whether I would chase them. I like kids…a lot! Maybe because I am still a kid. And I like anyone who will snuggle me. I am up to date on shots (and I screamed like a chihuahua when I got one), neutered, heartworm neg and don’t have worms. I can be an only dog or live with one. I sound so perfect don’t I!  Plus I am as cute as they come.


Chubbs #46 **adoption pending**

Please welcome Chubbs #46 to MNBR! This 9 year old sweetheart is good with both dogs and cats, but has some anxiety with loud noises. He’s looking for a nice soft couch to rest his loooong ears on in his golden years. Is there room on your couch?


Freyja #48

We are still learning about Freyja. She is a pretty shy girl. As we get updates we'll post more about her.


Sophie #49 **adoption pending**

We are still learning about Sophie but she's doing very well and is starting to love life in a house. Yesterday she decided toys are very fun and not scary and loves playing tug of war with her foster sister. Sophie has even started whining at the door when she wants to come back in. She is still scared of people, but is getting better. 


Nyla #50

Nyla got her freedom ride to Minnesota Basset Rescue. She is a beagle mix, a very smart little girl, 10 months old and was impounded at at a local shelter. We just couldn't leave her there.  As we get to know her we'll update you!


Milly #51

Welcome Milly, a sweet 7 year old lady that just came to MNBR. As we get to know her we'll post more information.
