Adoption Procedures

Thank you for considering the adoption of an All Ears Basset Sanctuary hound into your home and family. A successful adoption depends on both the selection of the right basset for your household, an understanding of the basset's needs and psychology, and knowledge about hound care. We cannot stress enough that hounds are not like other dogs! They are completely nose-oriented, tough-minded, independent and, in short, live in their own world. If you like the idea of a highly intelligent, strong-willed, tough, independent dog that's not all that eager to please but is loving, loyal and fun, then read on!
