A Message from the Commander...


The Pacific Basset Feet is an all-volunteer, every basset accepted at the rank at which it applies, basset peace-keeping force, although an anti-squirrel terrorist team certainly has the potential for violence.

The purpose of the Pacific Basset Feet is to promote all facets of bassetdom and basset hound rescue.

While most ranks in the Feet parallel their counterparts in the human Navy fleet, there are also divisions from Air Force, Army, Marine (Semper Fido!) and State Department.

And while most members are American, there are also representatives from France, England, Ireland, Mexico, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Membership in the Feet is free and is just for fun.

Western Missouri Basset Rescue sells Feet uniforms and Basset Rescue Florida sells Feet mugs as fund raisers for their basset rescue operations. Visit the Feet PX for more.

All bassets are welcome and are invited to enlist.

Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Basset Feet 

"When you, here, everyone of you, were puppies, you all admired the champion basset, the fastest basset, the toughest basset, the big league scent trackers, and the All-Bassetdom squirrel-chasing basset.

"Bassets love a winner. Bassets will not tolerate a loser. Bassets despise whiners. Bassets play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a basset that tucked its tail and turned. The very idea of not being bassetudinous is hateful to a Basset."

--with apologies to George S. Patton Jr., June 5, 1944
