Please welcome The Girl with No Name

You may have seen our Facebook post about this beautiful girl.  She was found as a stray and has exceeded her statutory holding period at the pound where she was.  This means that her owner has not been found; unless rescue space was found she would have gone to the dog warden where her days would have been numbered.   We were contacted last night asking if we could take her and we are so pleased to say she was collected today and is now in foster within the BRNGB family...

Hardest goodbye

As Hound owners (or Hound slaves) one of the hardest, most heart breaking decisions you will ever have to make is saying goodbye.   People deal with grief in different ways, there is no right or wrong way to cope with the loss of a much loved family member, be them on two legs or four.  All of us girls who run the rescue have experienced not only our own personal losses, but the losses of Hounds in our care, most recenlty Jo and her adopted Hound Cleo.  Cleo had been diagnose...

Welcome Meg and a wish list

Please welcome Meg to the BRNGB who arrived today.  She's a lovely 4 year old girl who is proving to be a bit of a flight risk, we believe due to nerves.  She has met her foster siblings, both human and hound and eaten her dinner so nerves are subsiding.

Welcome Sally and a Wish List

Please welcome Sally to the BRNGB family.  We believe Sally to be 2 years old.  She had been with her surrendering family for about a week after being dropped off by her previous owner.  We believe she didn't have a name or any belongings when she was delivered to the family, and although Sally has done nothing wrong, she wasn't the dog the family were expecting, so they contacted us to surrender her. She has been staying with different family members for the last week, so she's a...

Sissy and her under-carriage

Who remembers Sassy Sissy who joined our family recently as one of the triplets?  Sissy is only 4 years old and has been a breeding machine sadly.  She's a lovely happy, cheeky, full of sass girl, but we really do need to help her with her *ahem* boobs!   Due to over breeding, as you can see below her under-carriage is dragging the floor.  They are getting sore, dirty and generally in the way of Sissy when she's trying to just enjoy life as a basset instead of a mac...
