Some of you know that we lost our beloved Daisy Mae two weeks ago. Sally was missing her, moping around and checking her bed often. We hadn't planned on adopting another hound for awhile but realized that Sally needed a buddy, and the house seemed so strange with only one hound anyway. We drove up to Daphneyland, a rescue ranch for bassets located in Acton, CA, and found Rocky there. He is 5 years old, and had been at the ranch for 3 months. Sally came along to approve our choice, and seemed to find Rocky agreeable..........so he came home with us. We are still getting used to each other, but he seems to be a sweet boy who loves everyone including our kitties. He is a little anxious and likes to know where we are at all times, but has started to relax. I'm sure he'll do just fine. We still miss Daisy every day, but Rocky has filled in a little of the hole she left when she went to the Bridge. He is a VERY long boy and we need to get a little weight off him, but otherwise got a clean bill of health. He appears to be house broken - only one puddle inside so far. I think he's a keeper :)

Rocky is obviously the noblest of hounds -- just look at the first picture! :D

Welcome Rocky. I'm sure you will fit right in with Marcia's crew.

WOW - he's HUGE.

I laughed out loud when I seen the first picture. He definately has that regal look going on.

He's so very lucky to have found you. Im sure he's going to love having a sister too!

What a beautiful boy! He really is gorgeous. As we all know, bassets are incredibly good looking throughout their lives, but I have to say that I personally think they are especially stunnng as they get older. Congratulations on the new addition to your family!

He looks like a big boy. Have you weighed him yet?

Do bassets tend to turn white around five years of age?

I'm sure the anxiousness will become less, as soon as he
starts feeling secure.

Good luck.

What a handsome boy! And good for you! Molly (my rescue Basset) started to turn white in the face at about 5. Take care, Belinda.

Rocky is one handsome guy. I'm so thrilled for you and he is one lucky guy. Daisy Mae will always be in your heart, and I'm sure she is smiling down on Rocky and your family. Enjoy that big guy!!
