My family is looking for a Basset puppy to add to our family. Our beloved Bassett of ten years recently passed. We rescued her, but she was full of health problems. This time, we'd like to buy a dog from a good breeder, preferably one who genetically screens. Our Basset will be a companion dog, so she doesn't have to be perfect for show standards. Price is no option. We are willing to travel to meet the breeder and again to pick up the puppy.

Please let me know if you know of anyone with puppies available this spring. We'd prefer a female, red and white or tricolor.

We are in Chicago and haven't had much luck finding a local breeder. I didn't get a response from Topsfield. The basset hound club of america list is hit or miss. Seems like a lot of the listed folks are no longer breeding.

Does anyone know anything about longearedhounds.

We've always had female dogs, so we're pretty attached to the idea of a female. Olde Fashion's dogs are beautiful and we've asked them to let us know if a female becomes available.

Our Loopy also had significant health problems, though she was the love of my life. We had years of emergency vet visits, specialists, therapy and very expensive medicine. Our family just can't go through that again. We want to take the repsonsible road and go through a responsible breeder, but it is difficult to tell who is responsible and not. And, this after years if going to the Chicago dog show, being on the Drool, and attending Waddles. I never thought this would be this difficult.

Soundtrack, Thank you for the advice. About 10 years ago, you gave me lots of great advice when I was being trained by Loopy as a puppy (my first basset). As always, it is much appreciated.
