Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do you breed purebred Basset hounds?

    Our litters are well thought out and planned. The parents should have titles confirming that they adhere to the breed standard. Potential pairings are evaluated to find the match that will produce a litter that maintains and hopefully improves the quality of the breed.

  • When can I bring my puppy home?

    Our puppies are whelped and raised in clean, warm surroundings and provided with the best physical care and the socialization they need; this includes from mom and the litter mates. Emotional and mental stimulation is needed so they fulfill their genetic potential. For this reason our puppies do not go to their new homes until at least 12 weeks of age. There are no exceptions.

  • I see a puppy that I would like – can I put a deposit down?

    We do not take deposits on puppies because we cannot say for sure if (or when) a puppy will be available. In order for us to determine if a puppy will be kept as a show dog the puppy needs to grow and mature a bit. Not only do we look at temperament but we look at the physical structure of the puppy as well. Once the determination has been made that a puppy is appropriate for a pet home that will be notated near the picture on the web site. We also do not have a waiting list for the main reason we cannot guarantee when a pet puppy will become available. By the time the puppy is about 8 weeks old we will have a better idea on availability. Just keep in touch with us!

  • How do you pick pet homes?

    It is important to us to ensure our puppies go to loving and safe homes. We will talk on the phone to get to you know and invite you to come visit the puppies. We do have a contract that you will sign.

  • I am interested in purchasing a puppy to show.

    That is great news! Contact us and we can set something up!
