Welcome to our website. We hope you will find something of interest here about bloodhounds. If we can be of any assistance we would like to hear from you.


After years of total dedication to the bloodhound breed, and after breeding our last litter in 2007 we have decided to curtail our breeding program and are no longer breeding bloodhounds.  We have left the general bloodhound information on our website, and as always, will be available for consultation for all your bloodhound questions.  Feel free to email with your requests and we will provide accurate and honest information.
