Introducing.... the Bassets of Mayhem

Or the Herd
We've been looking around for a forum to land and call home, one that speaks dog.
A bit about us.....
I used to be very active in private rescue until the economy went belly up and we had to live off 25% of what we were used to. After that I could only take in what we could afford, when we could afford. But we still do what we can and usually only take seniors, or those with hard to deal with issues.
Right now we are at 5 dogs, 4 bassets and a great dane pup. And 7 cats. And we won't count the chickens, they work to stay here by giving me eggs to pay for the feed and the occasional dinner. Then there's the turkeys, Dinner and Supper. And today there are quail hatching in the incubator.

Anyhoo.... The Bassets of Mayhem, and a bit about each:

Curie, 5.5 years old, rescue from a kill shelter at 7 months old, had severe bladder and kidney infections when I pulled her, they actually gave me her unlimited registration papers

Gus, somewhere around 11, had been pulled from a kill shelter by a JRT group, he came our way and stayed. Has food, treat, bone aggression issues along with thyroid problems and a type of non-malignant cancer that we have managed very well in the 4 years we've had him.

Ada, best guess of 7 to 10 years old, puppy mill breeder, never saw grass until she was confiscated, had to have quite a few of her teeth pulled once I got her due to infections and has severe ear infections that will suddenly pop up due to allergies. She's been with us a year.

Kelvin, around 15, pulled from a kill shelter at 34 lbs and skeletal was a nice way to refer to him. He was also diagnosed with CRF (chronic renal failure) and give 6 to 9 months before it would get to the point of non manageable, that was a little over 3 years ago. Right now he's going down hill, the CRF is slowly getting worse and he has a prostate tumor (we think that's what it is) that at this age and condition is inoperable. So as long as he's happy and being a velcro dog like usual we make him comfortable.

And the non basset:
Lisi (Lycee), 22 week old great dane pup. I have lost 2 big goofy dogs (daneX and a massive lab, our last rescue) in less than a year and this place was just not the same. After much research we found a reputable breeder and brought her home. We are still in the mouthy stage and she is a bit fearful of new dogs but we are working on it.

I bet this long post would be better with pics huh?

Left to right, Curie, Kelvin, Ada, Gus

And an older pic of Lisi, she's grown since! I need to get a new one of her uploaded:

Thanks! For sure I'll be asking a couple questions when I have a few more minutes later today, I've hit a snag in treatment for Lisi, but I just got in a load of turnips that need to be cleaned and canned, broccoli to freeze, a TON of squash to put up and bread to make.

Ada is officially lemon/white though now that most of her coat has grown in she has 2 little black tick marks on her back. She's a petite little girl too, only 38 lbs.

We lost my daneX (Tesla) last March to an ACL rupture and subsequent total rear lameness. We couldn't get her to a specialist before her seizures took over and we knew she was too miserable and too injured to force her to go through treatment. Happened in less than 48 hours, even upset my vet's office pretty bad.
Then the next rescue we took in July (Maggie) suddenly took ill in February with mast cell cancer and we didn't have 2 weeks left with her. She had been in a kennel at the shelter for 6 years before we pulled her. 130 lb black dog. At least her last few months were with family.

We deal with this a lot since we take seniors or those with illnesses so we have to pick up and keep going. It's hades some years though, this past one was definitely one of the worst.
