At Woebgon Bassets we do not breed very often. This page and pages linked to it will show pictures of any current litters and provide information about the puppies. All our litters are registered with the AKC. Go to AKC Registration or click on the logo below for more information on AKC registration.

Please also download the RED FLAG WARNING TO PUPPY BUYERS document. This a list of DANGERS in finding a puppy was composed with the assistance of a group of independent Responsible Basset Hound Breeders on the Facebook Basset Basics Page.

In 2016 the AKC started distinguishing some breeders as Responsible Breeders. The Golden Retriver Club of America produced a video on this topic to show what that means. With their permission the AKC started producing a series of videos on Responsible Breeders. It is their intent to let people know that some breeders stand out because of certain characteristics. You can find our statement on this topic and a link to the AKC video at: Responsible Breeders

Pam and I are proud of being breeders of Basset Hounds. Because of the AR movement breeders have been chastised by the press and even some rescue groups. Our statement on us and our breeding attempts to answer those critics. On this page there is also an excellent video produced by the AKC on Responsible Breeders.

Future Litters: (Updated 12/10/18)

Pam and I have finalized our breeding plans. We have decided that we will NOT breed a litter next year or in the future. The reasons for this decision are very complex, complicated and personal. It all boils down, however, to the fact that we're not as young as we were when we had our last litter and it was difficult for us to handle that breeding. In contemplating future litters we have decided that having a litter is simply too much for us. There will be more said about this decision in the future and this website will be going through some drastic changes.


For now we'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has provided a wonderful home for one of our bassets whether it was a puppy or older basset. Over the years we have met some outstanding people through our dogs. We greatly appreciate you.


We also apologize to anyone who is currently on our list for possible future puppies. I must say that this was not an easy decision for us to make partly because we have some exceptional families who were hoping for one of our puppies. To all of you we're especially sorry. In the near future we plan to make suggestions for other breeders whom we know will be producing some exceptional basset hounds. That will be part of a major update for this website. For now consult the websites of the Basset Hound Club of Southern California, The Greater San Diego Basset Hound Club and the Basset Hound Club of America. All three websites have listings of member breeders. Please DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US FOR RECOMMENDATIONS OR ANY INFORMATION ON BREEDERS. We know most responsible/reputable breeders and if we don't we know people who do.

SPECIAL NOTE: We have noticed that some websites have listed Woebgon Bassets on them. We have NEVER authorised any websites other than those published by the basset hound clubs to which we belong to include any information about us. We do not condone any such websites that list breeders. Please be very careful going to ANY of these websites. One that I discovered tries to freeze your computer and hold it for ransom money.

The following quote from The Kennel Club (United Kingdom) is excellent and one that all breeders and buyers should follow no matter where they live:

We agree strongly with this statement and insist that puppy buyers visit our home and see all our basset hounds. We also throughly investigate all potential buyers and their families. This is what is best for ALL involved, especially the puppy.

We still think it’s important to build dogs with pedigrees rather than technology. And every longtime breeder I know is really proud of the line of dogs they built with very careful pedigree analysis.
