My Commitment To The Hounds

Countless thousands of homeless Basset Hounds across America, and around the world, languish in animal shelters, longing for a loving family and home. Perhaps you have long wanted to offer a needy Basset his or her “forever home.”


The Literary Basset, and Basset Hound Books, offer online resources on their care and feeding, and will guide and encourage present and future Basset parents. Filled with engaging photos, stunning videos, and dozens of useful web-links to Basset behavior, these books define history, nourishment and supplements, care and grooming, and offer discussions of issues behavioral and medical. And, as a reader, you may share and contribute to our blogs and newsletters.
