Absinthe Basset Hounds

Currently we have a litter of 7 Males and 2 Females, born on July 2, 2022. Companion puppies resulting in this litter, will be available to go to their “Forever Families” in the Fall of2022. We are reviewing applications on the waitlist for this litter currently, and due to an overwhelming response to our past two litters, we have a very limited number of puppies availabe to companion homes.  If Fall 2022 is too long a time to wait, we recommend contacting the Basset Hound Club of America/Breeder Referrals, where you will find reputable breeders who may have puppies available at this time in your area.  Here is the link: https://basset-bhca.org/find-a-basset/
