He is our mighty Tri colored hound. Long leathery ears and droopy eyes. The ladies swoon over him. Regal, long and lean. Hank has an exceptionally silky coat. Hank is offically retired but you can see him in the movie "The Smurfs "
Hank plays Elway, ans we are so proud of his marvelous acting ability!
Dover's sire(Mick's Dad) comes from CH Branscombe Earthound Wellsey,TD. Dover has 44 Champions on his fathers side.
Dover's Dam comes from CH Elysian bloodlines. Dover has 36 champions in 5 generations on his mothers side. Mick's Dam, Tokel's Atlanta Jean, has European basset hound Champions as far back as it can go. Bloodlines boast from Queen's Hermelin, Dominik, and Von Hollandheim. Just on Mick's mothers side their are 21 Champions in 5 generations.
Garth is our 100% European Basset Hound. Oh what a hunk of burning love too! Garths bloodlines come from an impressive line of Champions from Moravia Bray in the Czech Republic . He is a huge thick bodied boy with massive paws and very short, thick and wrinkled legs. He weighs in at 95 lbs at 3 1/2 yrs. What a loving and mild tempered boy he is- such a big baby and a cuddler. Garth has gorgeous red and white patches, a huge head with nice dome and thick rolls of loose skin. Garth is not an alpha. He plays with all the males!
Here we have Garth as a puppy. He has massive thick legs, yet they are short and stubby, just how we basset hound lovers like it!
His droopy sad looks and his jovial happy personality just makes us laugh!
Mick St. John 1/4 European 3/4 American Basset Hound
This is Dover's son Mick St. John who weighs in at 104 lbs! Mick is our new stud who boasts 1/4 Champion European Bloodlines and 3/4 Champion American Bloodlines. Mick is a phenomenal representation of a well bred Basset Hound. He is so short to the ground with his thick stumps for legs. Mick is just a huge teddy bear...no alpha male in him what so ever! We adore Mick and are proud to reproduce such an improvement to the Basset Hound breed.
