About Us

Rabbit Run Bassets - Nancy Klenke

I have been showing and breeding Basset Hounds since 1988 in South Eastern, Minnesota. I am dedicated to the preservation of the Basset Hound in a quest to meet the standard. I am an active member of the Basset Hound Club of America, The Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul Basset Hound Club and the Rochester MN Kennel Club. At present, I co-breed with Damarna Bassets and work closely in cooperation with other quality breeders.

Damarna Bassets - Lisa Ritchie

Growing up my dream was to have a Basset Hound. One day, in 1998 after completing treatment for Breast Cancer, my dream came true when a young basset puppy named Bucksnort joined our family. Fast forward a few years and I find myself involved in the world of showing and breeding. I co-breed predominantly with Rabbit Run Bassets but work closely with other breeders to help reach the goal of producing purebred Basset Hounds that closely reflect the breed standard.
