The Bassbarr Foundation was founded in Hungary in 2009
Over the years I have had the opportunity of helping several young people who had lost their way, for one reason or another, using the bassets and their freely given devotion as a therapeutic tool. Looking after animals is a daily responsibility, and a constant joy. Certainly it can be hard work, but the rewards are tangible. It is impossible to be in the company of basset hounds and not smile. They accept us in our most unlovable moods, and seem to have a sense of empathy for people who are suffering. I have seen many families become more functional following the addition of a basset hound to their home.
