Upcoming Basset Hound Puppies.
Puppies are able to go to their new home at the age of eight weeks.
The adoption process begins with the family filling out, and submitting, a puppy application, along with a $25 (non-refundable) holding
fee. This ensures your spot on the list is held. The puppy application is on a page of this website. This fee is included in the total price of the puppy. I do ask questions of the buyers prior to taking a deposit on a puppy. I need to feel confident the puppy will be properly treated and cared for before placement. To place a puppy on hold, once you choose the pup you want, I ask $200 as a nonrefundable deposit, along with a signed contract. The contract is on a page of this website. The total cost of a puppy ( including the holding fee and the deposit) is $900. The remainder of the cost of the puppy is due on or before pick up. I ask for cash only if final payment is at pick up.
Puppy choices begin when the pups are one week old. I contact the family who is first on the list, and once they make their choice, I continue down the list for the litter.
From the time you choose your puppy, until the day it's able to go home with you, I send you updated pictures, and progress reports, and answer any questions you may have about how your little one is doing. If you are local, or want to visit with your puppy prior to the pick-up date, I welcome that. For health reasons, I do restrict direct contact with the puppy until it has been given it's first shots and vet-check--typically done at six weeks of age.
Note: Puppies will be registered with either AKC or CKC. Registration papers will be mailed to the family once I receive proof of spay/neuter. This needs to be in the form of a letter, or letterhead, or copy of paperwork from the vet that performed the procedure.

Gidget will be the next to mate. I'm unsure which stud she will choose at this point. Hoping to breed her around December, 2020 timeframe
