Graceminster Bloodhound Puppies & Basset Hounds
Here at The Old Kennels, the Graceminster hounds are raised and live in an idyllic environment in the beautiful N. Yorkshire countryside.
All hounds live indoors but have unlimited access to a large garden. Their daily exercise is within the parkland surrounding the property where there is a wealth of wildlife to excite their olfactory senses.
Over the past 30 years, Graceminster Kennels have re-homed numerous adult Bloodhounds. I have also been successful in the show ring and breeding, achieving a breeders stud book accolade from the Kennel Club.
I worked for some years at Idexx Laboratories which gave me very valuable experience in biochemistry. My specialism was in diagnostics and thus increased my previous veterinary knowledge.
Graceminster puppies are carefully planned to ensure that all the relevant health and pedigrees are diligently researched. A litter is only considered when I am satisfied that all my criteria will be met and that the outcome will be, hopefully, to improve the breed.
I do not breed for profit but to ensure strong and healthy pups whose bloodlines will provide for the future.
In 2018, I shall be importing two bloodhound puppies from a highly respected kennel.
The bloodlines in their pedigree will help to increase the rapidly diminishing gene pool in the UK. This acquisition has been a long-awaited plan and there are high hopes for the future.
