Currently, we do not have any puppies or young adults available for approved homes. However, we are anticipating a litter in the Spring of 2024.  Puppies resulting from this litter would be ready for their new Forever Homes in August 2024.  If August 2024 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.

If you are chosen for one of our puppies, this is what you can expect from Absinthe Basset Hounds:


  • ALL of our puppies are vet checked, have their complete seies of puppy vaccintions, and dewormed prior to leaving us. They come with a personalized health record made by us.


  • ALL of our puppies are Registered with AKC (American Kennel Club).


  • ALL of our puppies have an AKC Certified Pedigree, so you will have information on the background of our dogs. We KNOW the health history and also any titles earned by any of the ancestors of our babies.  This is a bonus of owning a Registered Purebred dog.


  • ALL of our puppies are microchipped, so they can find their way home if they get lost and found by a shelter or brought to a veterinarian.  We encourage puppy owners to tag puppies collars stating "I am microchipped" on the tag.  The microchips are registered with the AKC so they can be recognized anywhere in the contiguous United States.


  • ALL of our puppies are sent home with an information pack full of useful information on health concerns and diet.


  • ALL of our pet puppies go on a strict non-breeding contract, to be signed prior to puppy leaving us.  Show/breeding homes are upon our approval (details to be negotiated) and a contract must be signed.
  • ALL persons/families acquiring a puppy from Absinthe Basset MUST agree to join Basset Hound Club of America for one full calendar year. We will not place any puppy with a person/family without this comittment.
  • ALL our puppies are Temperament & Aptitude tested before leaving us, using the Volhard Temperament testing modality.


  • ALL of our puppies leave here happy and well socialized, we insist that further socialization continues for a well balanced future.


  • ALL of our puppies are screened for the following genetic disorders which are breed specific:

    Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) 

    Basset Hound Thrombopathia (BHT)

    Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPSI)

    Lafora (a form of Epilepsy in certain Hound Breeds)

Thank You!
