Future Litters: (Updated 7/29/19)
Pam and I have finalized our breeding plans. We have decided that we will NOT breed in the future. We have retired from breeding. 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.
This website is a place where we hope to honor the breed and assist those who are looking for a puppy. To that end we have added the Breeder Listing below. These are breeders whom we know as close friends and would even consider purchasing a basset hound puppy from in the future. We proudly recommend them to others as well but please understand it is still up to you to do your due diligence in selecting a breeder and puppy. Just because we might buy a dog from them does not mean that they would be right for you.
PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US FOR SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON ANY SPECIFIC BASSET HOUND BREEDER OR BREEDERS IN A SPECIFIC AREA. We know most responsible/reputable breeders and if we don't them we know people who do.
We suggest that you can also 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. Member breeders have agreed to follow the clubs' coded of ethics.
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. All puppy buyers should visit the home of any breeder they are considering and see all their basset hounds. They should expect the breeder to throughly investigate all potential buyers and their families. This is what is best for ALL involved, especially the puppy. It's one of the major things that sets responsible/reputable breeders apart from the rest.
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.

The information below has been included here by the webmaster because he has recently received emails and calls from several people who claim to have been scammed by one of these fraudulent websites. At least four said they lost a substancial amount of money to one of these scammers. The following wording is from an actual FBI warning that our webmaster received in an email.
This is STILL HAPPENING!
While the FBI Warning doesn't specifically mention fraudulent websites they do exist. I have found several on the Internet. Due to legal issues I cannot name them here but I can warn you to be very careful getting a puppy from anyone, especially if they want money up front. The guidelines provided by the FBI are a good starting point. Some of these "fraudsters" are very good at getting money from people.
