GABR Transports (Gus and Jasmine) - 1/11/2013

HoundDogMom Here:

On Friday, January 11th, I had the opportunity to do a transport for Guardian Angel Basset Rescue(GABR). For those of you who are new to the blog this is the Basset Rescue that we are involved with and also where our Bella was adopted from. They are based out of Dwight, IL and all have dogs in foster homes in Illinois, Indiana. They mainly take in dogs in these states but have gone outside of these states as well. As our Bella came all the way from Kentucky, so they are not afraid to do some traveling to rescue a basset in need. We transport for them from several times through the year. If you ever want more information on them, just drop me a note.

So on this transport we had two wonderful beautiful bassets making their journey's (Gus and Jasmine)

Yep, they say we are hitching a ride together

First we will start with Jasmine. Jasmine is a 9 year old very petite basset girl (I think maybe she has some dachshund). She weighs in a 30 pounds and was traveling north to her new forever home. She has found her forever family and they were signing adoption papers for that day. We just happen to be covering one leg of her transport.

Okay, I am ready to get this transport on the road

 Waiting for her next ride to show up

Second we have Gus a 4 year old red and white basset. Gus is a very big boy and weighs in at 80 pounds and he is solid. Unfortunately, Gus has had a hard time finding the perfect forever home for himself. He was in GABR rescue when he was a puppy and adopted out, returned a few years later to the rescue, adopted out again, and returned this time due to a divorce. So we are really hoping he finds the perfect family that will keep him forever and ever. His previous family took very good care of him as you can tell by his size, they just have fell on hard times. We have no doubts the right family will come along for this very handsome boy.

 Who could refuse those eyes!

 Gus the Bus

We have to show you the picture of the helper that came along with Gus on his first leg of transport.


Snuffles goes on all the transports that his Daddy does for GABR.  He is such a good boy and loves the bassets.  We just love his name.

We have heard that Jasmine is settling in her new home quite well and is loving the grandkids.  Gus has settled in his foster home and is stealing the couch/chair and goes to the dog park several times.
