Scout (Still looking)

The Basset Rescue Network of Great Britain


Name: Scout 

Sex: Female

Age: 4

Location: (now) Warrington

Scout is still in foster, she is still without an Application, and still without a home of her own. 


We know sh'es not a bsset, but she's a hound, she loves bassets, she plays like a basset, she countersurfs like a basset, she cuddles like a basset, and she deserves a home of her own just like all bassets. 

Scout has moved foster homes and is now in Warrington.  Here's a update on what her new foster family have to say about her.  We've also included her other blogs so you have her full story. 

Scout is a fun loving and affectionate hound. She's equally happy playing with our resident dogs or chilling. She's been fine with our pack apart from one incident with one of our bitches who's a similar age, they play well together but our resident dog went for Scout who reacted, she's very feisty when needed and had to be restrained as she wouldn't back down.  This has been the only incident since she moved foster homes.

Scout is very adept at opening doors and she is very agile and tall, even though our garden is secure she finds ways to get out including a hole under the fence dug by foxes and trying to climb a 6ft fence. She is extremely fast and covers ground very quickly however she has an amazing homing instinct and makes her way back eventually.   Scout is now fully furnished with a tracker, which if her new family would like to take over upn her adoption we can arrnage that. 

She walks well (pulls a little) but responds to commands. Scout is fully house trained, she likes to go out of the way in the garden. 

She has been sleeping on the bed with some of the smaller members of our pack and doesn't stir until 8am ish when she hears the big dogs moving downstairs. She's met plenty of people, young and old and has been very friendly with everyone. 

She hasn't been fully cat tested yet but has reacted when she's seen one while out walking. 

Scout would be best with a slightly older resident dog to show her the ropes and give her a playmate as she loves to play. 

There must be a home out there for Scout

Please read her other blogs which are linked below and please do share her where you can

Lets find her foreer home

Scout - why does no one want this lovely girl ? - Basset Rescue Network of Great Britain

Please please read Scout's blog and share her far and wide. She's a lovely young girl, hound mix, who has so much love and energy to give, she just needs her own, understanding home  Full rescue back up will be given as always  Scout i

All in all Scout has been a joy to have in our care; if you are an active family looking for a hound, we are waiting to hear from you.

Scout will need a confident, friendly resident dog to play with, snuggle with and give her the confidence to settle into her new life.

Scout's needs:-

  • An active family who are willing to put in the excercise and training Scout needs
  • Any children need to be dog savvy and older than 6 years old
  • Patience and time to spend with Scout in the crucial first few weeks as she adapts to her forever home.
  • A resident, confident, playful dog
  • Someone who is aware of food resource guarding and how to put strategies in place
  • BRNGB will of course assist with positive reinforcement training if Scout's new family wish us to
  • A family where someone is home most of the time so Scout's seperation anxiety doesn't return
  • A family who understand hounds and their needs
  • No small furries, cats, chickens etc, we are not sure on Scout's prey drive and 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.


Scout is subject to an adoption fee 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 them and his foster family.

You will also have a telephone call with a member of the team, plus Scout'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.

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

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

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

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
