Mozart #68 **Medical hold**

Mozart just came to MNBR as a stray from the south. He was extremely underweight, covered in fleas, and heartworm positive. His teeth are in rough shape, so we are hoping to focus on working on those first to relieve some pain. Mozart has been a very sweet boy and loves being taken care of! His foster home is spoiling him with lots of delicious food, toys and comfy places to sleep.

Mozart is going to need a lot of medical care. If you would like to donate to Mozart’s recovery and care please click below. Thank you! To learn more about adopting me click here.


Layla #31 **special needs**

Layla is a sweet, gentle Basset Hound-Poodle mix. We estimate her to be around 9 years old. She gets along great with the multiple hounds in 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 and will be sure to greet you with a wagging tail when you get home. She makes a great lap dog and doesn’t mind being carried. Layla has sublexing patellas which cause her some mobility issues so Layla would prefer a home with little to no stairs. She recently lost some additional weight and is down to 26.5 pounds. She takes medication for allergies. She is part poodle so she will need regular grooming. 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! To learn more about adopting me click here.


Lucky #39

Lucky was adopted from a shelter a little over a year ago but her new owner became sick and had to give up all her pets, so Lucky came to MNBR. We think she is about 11 but has the mobility of a 3-year-old. She is spunky and fun and always in a good mood. She would love to play but her current foster brother and sister just aren’t into it, so Lucky has tons of fun treeing squirrels, as well as exchanging barks with the mastiff across the alley. She gets very excited for meals and jumps with all four legs off the floor. Once she has her food, though, she sits down and eats quite daintily.

NOTE: Lucky has been diagnosed with mild kidney dysfunction which is currently managed by medications.

Sparky #62 **medical hold**

This 11 year old soul joined MNBR on September 29th heartworm positive and with horrible teeth. MNBR immediately got him started on the American Heartworm Society's treatment protocol. On December 5th he received the first of three injections needed to kill the heartworms attacking his system on January 9th Sparky received his second injection, and on January 10th he received his third and final injection! He will need to be retested after 30 days to determine whether further treatment is needed. If the tests come back negative, he will then receive a much-needed dental. To fully complete the protocol, he will need to be tested again in October of 2019 to ensure no traces of the heartworms remain.

Sparky will need to be on heartworm prevention year-round for the rest of his life, which we hope will be several more years.
Heartworm treatment is costly, lengthy, and takes a physical toll on the infected dog. Thankfully, Sparky appears to be handling the treatment well and is on his way to a healthier, happier life

Manny #69 **medical hold**

Manny is a 12 year old beagle who we just couldn’t say no to helping. Manny is very active for his age and very curious. He is very much the typical beagle and loves to get into the garbage and any other interesting things he can find. He quickly found the preferred dog spots on the sofa, in the sun porch, and in front of the heater. His foster mom has been doing a great job of finding fun activities for Manny to keep his busy mind occupied. He generally ignores the other dogs in his home but enjoys pats fr om his foster mom. Manny has a bit of a leaky bladder, but he is improving now that he is on Proin. He is on a medical hold until his bladder issues can be resolved and a dental can be completed.

Shiloh #71 **medical hold**

Shiloh is a sweet 7 year old guy that gets along well with dogs and cats. He loves attention and wants to be by his human at all times. He's missing some of his toes on his front foot since he was a puppy, but it doesn't seem to bother him and he gets around just fine. His tear ducts do not work properly so he requires daily eye drops. His favorite activities are sniffing around the yard and getting his belly rubbed. Shiloh needs to lose a few pounds and is on a medical hold until he can complete a much needed dental.


Belle #74

Belle #74 is doing great in her foster home. She is a very active 2-3 yr old Basset mix. Belle is a sweet little dog. She is great with dogs and eager to please her people. She hasn't had exposure to kids or cats, but I can't imagine kids would be a problem. She is kennel trained and potty trained. She's even picked up on ringing a bell to let you know she wants to go out. As with most hounds she is very vocal so it's probably best to avoid apartment living. She full of energy and is smart as a whip. She is a perfect car rider and made a lot of new friends at the vet. Since she is so smart, she tends is a bit of an escape artist so a fenced yard and active lifestyle would be best. If you're looking for a dog who is always ready to greet you with excitement and lots of kisses, look no further! To learn more about adopting me click here.

DASH #73

Dash is 1-1/2 years old, a little guy at under 25 lbs, and possibly a beagle/basset mix. So far he is getting along well with the other dogs in his foster home. He loves to cuddle and lay on your lap. He's very smart and knows several commands. He is kennel trained and house trained. We believe he would do best in a home with no young children and with a younger doggy playmate. He is very active and would enjoy obedience training. To learn more about adopting me click here.


Rudy #75

Rudy is doing good in his foster home. He loves to cuddle and seems to really love children! As his foster mom get’s to know him we’ll continue to update. To learn more about adopting me click here.

Daisy Mae #76 **medical hold**

"Hello everyone! My name is Daisy Mae and I'm so happy to be with Minnesota Basset Rescue after arriving from Missouri on Sunday. I'm still adjusting to my foster home, but my foster mom says I'm the best! one of my favorite things to do is siiiiiiing. Yesterday I went to the vet. I was really nervous, but I got lots of treats and pats. My bloodwork was great, but unfortunately I have glaucoma. Normal eye pressure is 15, and mine is 59, so that means I am in a lot of pain! The vet said it would be best to remove my eye. The nice people at MNBR are going to get me in as soon as possible, but in the mean time I have eye drops to help with the pain and a nice soft bed to rest on."

Daisy is such a sweet girl, and all of us at MNBR will give her the best care we can. Please click the Donate button If you would like to donate towards the cost of her eye removal.
