And the Oscar for Oldest Living Basset goes to...Wilson 


Meet Wilson, NTBHR's oldest living rescue. Wilson has been with his loving forever family since April 2003, and over the years they have made some wonderful memories together. Wilson proved to his family from the get-go that he was a runner, a barker, and a hungry boy. Every chance he got, Wilson would run out the gate and follow his nose as far as he could before being captured and returned to his yard. Nowadays, he can no longer run, but he still likes to show off his independence. So whenever the gate is left open he will walk around the house and sit at the front door and bark.


Wilson has also taken endless pleasure from keeping the squirrels in his yard inline. He has spent hours barking at them through the sliding glass door, and whenever he used to get the chance he would chase them. Wilson has never been a fan of car rides, and on one instance he traveled with his family to North Carolina. They didn't think Wilson was capable of barking for hours on end, but he proved them wrong!

Just like most bassets, Wilson has a great appetite. One time he managed to knock over a 50 pound container of dog food, and when his family got home they found a very messy kitchen and a very full Wilson. Like his squirrel friends, he also has a knack for storing food. On a couple of occasions Wilson managed to get his paws on some uncooked chicken that he promptly took to his yard and buried.


These days Wilson has mellowed some, but he has never lost his sweet, affectionate nature. He still loves to cuddle with his forever family every chance he gets. Wilson has been very lucky to get to spend the last 14 amazing years with his family, but as every good basset hound owner knows -- we are really the lucky ones when we get to spend any amount of time with a dog like Wilson.

NTBHR is only able to save the lives of deserving basset hounds BECAUSE OF YOU!

As a supporter and donor, you are making a commitment to partner with us saving the lives of hundreds of homeless basset hounds every year.
YOU make it all happen!
Please consider membership in our new BFF Program, Basset Friends Forever

Your participation will assure that the level of care we provide to our dogs remains high, and that we are able to do all that is necessary to make their lives whole again.
Our adoption fees only cover about 25% of the average medical expenses incurred for our dogs.  That's because we do more than the minimum of care for the dogs in our care.  We work with about 10 area veterinarians who provide discounted services, but they are not free. 
Our average expense on any given dog is nearly $950.  The average adoption fee is $250.
