Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and new Baby Basset Lovers!  Please, drum roll please…

This is Miss Dixie Doyle!!!


Miss Dixie was recently adopted by Cindy and Ronald Doyle of TX.  Cindy and Ronald were ready to find love again after the painful loss of Rugs, Jethro, Ozzie and then Harriet.  They were not sure if they were going to adopt again but we all know howl that goes!!!  hahahaha


Cindy has volunteered for years at Basset Buddies Rescue of TX so she didn’t have to look far to find someone special!

I asked Cindy for a little background…
“The owner who surrendered her to BBRTX bought her from Craigslist for her infant daughter.  Dixie didn’t respond too well with their daughter and that’s why they gave her up.”

Note from Cat…Who buys a basset hound for an infant?   

“Her first foster with BBRTX had her for about a month.  During her time with the first foster she had a false/chemical pregnancy so she went through the surgery to get spayed.  She was still recovering from the spaying when the second home took her in to help her recover from the spay surgery under a foster to adopt situation.  After Dixie was healthy and healed she would be adopted.  Then, unfortunately, she also had heartworms.  So after she recovered from the spaying, she went through the heartworm treatments.  She was forced to stay calm for a whole month and was in some pain but she handled it just fine.  The foster to adopt home had another dog and Dixie is very possessive and protective over her owners so she was getting aggressive with the other dog in the household.  They were also expecting a new baby in a month and they could not have that behavior around the baby.  So, they contacted BBRTX and requested that she be placed in another home more suitable for Dixie.  For this reason Dixie will be an only dog, which is a great situation for us because we will be able to take her with us most places and when we travel.”

(The Doyles have another lake property in TX, this is Dixie thinking about swimming???)


“Dixie has only been with us for a few weeks but she is such a good girl.  She is potty trained, crate trained and minds very well.  She is very smart and her previous family was teaching her a few tricks.  We look forward to getting to know her better and plan on attending some basset events with her in the future.”


“We are so glad that she landed in our arms and she’s already spoiled rotten!”


“And she is so excited to be a resident of the most famous Basset Hound Town, run by the most beautiful and famous Mayor, Daisy Lynn Rudert!”



Thank you Doyle Family for rescuing sweet Dixie!  We are in love…

More loving and welcoming Dixie later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB sending rainbow slobber…)
