Daisy looking for her new home

The Basset Rescue Network of Great Britain


Name: Daisy

Sex:  Female

Age: 5

Location:  Cambridgeshire

Meet Daisy, a just 5 year old Basset x Bulldog. Mum was a Bulldog and Dad was a Basset.  Her previous owners met both parents, she's such a loving girl, and althugh may not look total basset her, attitude is basset, with extra speed!  

Here's what her foster family has to say about Daisy

Daisy came to me at the beginning of June. She settled in well, Daisy has been used to being an only dog but after her initial "Hi Guys, im Daisy, this is how its going to be!" which resulted in her being put in her place by my resident hound, she has settled well with my dogs, she is still learning boundaries with them. Daisy absolutely loves having fur siblings and will snuggle with them on the sofa. 

Daisy has the energy of Tigger on a pogo stick after a case of Red Bull and plays like a WWF wrestler.

Daisy is therefore best suited to a home with a playful resident dog or a human who is a budding Mo Farrah!!. Daisy loves her walks and will go for miles, she does pull on the lead and this is something which needs work. Daisy loves to meet people on walks and is eager to say hello to other dogs, she can be a little bouncy/barky but once she has said helllo she is quite calm and happy.
Daisy travels well in the car and has been on quite a few outings travelling well and quietly in the boot of the car – both on her own and with my dogs she is happy just watching out of the window. I do secure her in the car as she does like to jump out on arrival. Daisy shows no signs of food aggression, she is quite twee at 20.8Kg she is fed twice a day and shows no concern over my basset circling like a shark hoping
for leftovers. Daisy is clean in the house, she does occassionally ask to go out when the door is closed but usually at this time of year my dogs have open access to the garden 
Daisy's recall in the garden is excellent, she loves her toys but will scatter them all round the garden!! I currently have workmen in my home and have had for several weeks, Daisy is quite happy to have them around but I do have to remind them not to leave anything important laying around or it could "dissapear" nto the garden!! 
Although Daisy is a bundle of energy she is an incredibly affectionate and loving dog and loves cuddles/lap naps, 

Although Daisy loves other hounds, she has not been cat or smnall furry tested, she's fast so we would say no small furries in the house. 

We also do not foster to families with children under 6 years old. 

Daisy was originally an only hound in the house, but as you can see she loves hound company.  We will consider her being an only hound with a family who are willing to play and quench Daisy's thirst for walks, ideally there will be another playful, confident resident hound in the home. 

Daisy's needs:-

  • An active family who are willing to put in the excercise and continued lead training needs
  • Any children need to be dog savvy and older than 6 years old
  • Patience and time to spend with Daisy in the crucial first few weeks as she adapts to her forever home.
  • BRNGB will of course assist with positive reinforcement training if Daisy's new family wish us to
  • A family where someone is home most of the time  
  • A family who understand hounds and their needs
  • No small furries, cats, chickens etc, we are not sure on Daisy's prey drive wouldn't want any accidents

Taking on a rescue dog is not the easy option. You need to be prepared to help a confused and troubled hound find their place in your family. They have been through a massive upheaval and will need time to settle into a new way of life, so please consider this BEFORE you fill in an application.


Daisy is subject to an adoption fees and a successful home check. If your home check is successful, your family including dogs will need to be able to travel to their foster home to meet her and her  foster family.

You will also have a telephone call with a member of the team, plus Daisy's foster family, so that all of her history can be shared with you in person, and that we can be assured that you can fill all of their needs, demands and requirements.

Daisy comes with 5 weeks free insurance via our rehoming partner, Agria.

Daisy, as with all of our hounds will have full rescue back up for life.

Thank you for reading Daisy's blog. Please share where you are able 

Welcome Barney and a wish list
Scout - why does no one want this lovely girl ?

Great work, no hound gets left behind. A true sentiment that is the embodiment of what this organisation is about. Great work team.

They do a good job of saving these hounds and finding special homes for life. They also work hard to raise money to pay for any vet bills.

Thank you for sending my recent purchases from your shop. Very efficient and wonderful quality merchandise, particularly the canvas/hessian bags and the t-shirts

We have the privilege of adopting Dylan. The whole process was seamless and very reassuring that they cover all bases, both in relation to vetting us and also in the assessment of the hound
