NTBHR was conflicted about taking in a dog that was in such “bad shape” A stray, he was in a rural shelter where he was diagnosed with distemper, which is normally a death sentence. Along with that, he had heartworms, and was covered with fleas and ticks. The only thing Waldo had going for him, was youth and a very sad face that begged for help. We took him to one of our vets who treated him with kid gloves, and a foster who gingerly nursed him back to health. 7 months later, Waldo emerged with a clean bill of health! Look at him now!

NTBHR relies on volunteer fosters tocare for our rescued Basset Hounds. We do not have a shelter facility. In afoster home our dogs are a part of an actual family. This enables each dog to become well socialized with other dogs and people. This interaction provides a healthier environment for the dog, ultimately enabling a smoother transition into an adoptive home where children and other dogs are likely. Please fill out the Foster Application to become one of our approved Fosters today. The rewards of fostering are in wagging talis and slobbery kisses!
