Hello, I've been reading your posts stating that you are searching for a basset pup, in the mid-atlantic area. I live in PA and am searching too. When I first started looking, I felt the same frustration that is represented in your words. My advice to you to is be patient and follow the advice on BHCA and from people who post here. You really don't want to buy a pup from "just anyone". I have found a couple of litters but the timing wasn't right for me. I need to bring a pup into our home during the summer months due to work schedules. Really search with care and make arrangements that will work to make the homecoming for you new pup a "forever" home!
Be patient, research..........there are reasonably priced, good stock pups out there.................Good Luck!
There is a basset hound event scheduled for Ocean City New Jersey the weekend of April 16th. The Doo-Dah Parade's main feature is a Boardwalk Waddle sponsored by Tri-State Basset Rescue. Check it: Boardwaddle 2010
Unfortunately, I am unable to attend on that date. It's sure to be a great place to meet a basset!
Hi- I just purchased a pup form a great breeder in NH- probably about 5 hours from you- He has 5 pups left- they are all gorgeous three trus- three lemons- four males- two females both girls are lemons- they will eight weeks on May 3rd. i'm telling you they are worth the ride and he is selling them for 575- let me know if you want his info
Not sure where in NJ you are, but Huckleberry mountain bassets in VA www.huckleberrymtnbassets.com/puppies.html has a couple left. They are about 6 hours from Newark. Don't really know these breeders, only know them because my sister breeds labs and beagles in the same area, but from the info on the website they seem OK. Of course if anyone here knows them, hopefully they will speak up.
Yes, Dean mentioned that on the "Inbred?" thread, however, he added to that expected litter announcement: "this is not a commericial", so I wasn't sure if he was going to make the pups available to the general public, like me. However, I am planning to attend the Denver, PA hunt. Hoping to meet people there. Will you be coming down? Would love to meet Jessie Brown. Also, hoping there might be some pups around. I am sold on the idea of a pup from one of the "huntin" crowd. Ideal timing for me to bring a pup home would be June/July when I'll have access to a pet nanny (my daughter is off over the summer and can help with puppy sitting since my husband and I work full time). Keep looking at Tait's, he has lots of pups coming but I really want to steer clear of commerical op but.......................I miss have a hound so much I can hardly stand it any longer!
I will be attending the PA hunt in a couple of weeks with Jessie. We look forward to meeting you. I think we are only going to be there on Saturday. Not totally sure yet so we will play it by ear.I am going to start up early Sat morning. Should take me around 3hrs.
