Basset Hound Owners And References

Hi Dan

I just wanted to give you an update on Ellie Mae. She was a Tri-Color from your 3/06/06 litter last year.

My brother-in-law is a veterinarian and he was very impressed with Ellie.
He said that he does not see puppies with that many worming and he also said she was a very good looking
Basset. (By the way she did not have any worms)

I have had Ellie for 8 months now and I wanted to let you know that she is such a good, happy dog. She makes
me laugh all the time. I have been very fortunate that my next door neighbors come over every day and let her
out. In the summer she stays out in the yard for 2 or 3 hours and then they let her back in. She loves her crate, usually she goes in
her crate each night at about 9pm and when I go to bed I close the door. She has been house trained since the 1st of November and
has been off of puppy food for a few months. She is about 55lbs. Hopefully she will stay close to this weight.

Since she was 4 months old (when she had all her shots) she has gone to the dog park to play. Ellie loves the dog park.
She has the perfect personality ,very playful but if a dog seems aggressive she is submissive right away. She is very happy and never stops running for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours when she gets tired. She also goes to Camp Bow Wow (Doggie Day Care) every Wednesday were she plays all day. I watch her on a web cam. I go bowling
on Wednesday night so when I pick her up she goes home eats dinner and walks directly into her crate. She is out for the night.
She also goes to Dapper Dog every 2 or 3 weeks for a bath. She is still not fond of bath water but she is starting to calm down for the
girls there. Every thing went very smoothly with her. She is a very good dog. In the nicer weather we go for walks every night which
Ellie loves. We also have a 4 year old male Basset that lives on the block who comes down to play with her regularly. Needless
to say we are both happy. I am planning to take her to the Basset Waddle this year.

I have thought that I might want to purchase a male from you some time in the future. I am still
thinking about it.

Have a great day.
Thank you for my sweet little dog.


“Lexi” ( Pick of the litter!)

We adopted Lexi at the end of May in 2007. My husband and I had just bought a house and we were looking for a dog to complete our home and we decided we wanted a female Basset Hound. We called Sandyhill and there was one pup left , a female. We chanced the 1-1/2 hours one way trip and fell in love with our “Lexi” on the spot. We met all the dogs in their family and everyone was champion quality and the environment was perfect for the Basset breed. We have been so pleased with Lexi as a family pet that we decided to adopt again and we are awaiting the arrival of our newest addition “Lola” from Sandyhill. Thank you Dan!

Sincerely, Adrienne and

Dan, Just wanted to give you a update on Bentley who we purchased from you in January, a red and white basset. This was the best thing I have ever done. I have never had a dog so loving and caring. Bentley is with me 24/7 and is a great companion for me. We go for walks and Bentley is so friendly with everyone he meets. He is to talk of my apartment complex. Bentley is totally house broken now and does very well when I do have to leave him alone. Loves to ride in the car and has just started to howl when he is excited. He was an excellent choice for apartment living. Looking forward in a year to purchase another one of your bassets.

Thank You again, Darcy

Dan, I just wanted to say Hi. Bentlee is now 1 year old. He weighs 53 pounds and is beautiful. He is such a sweetheart, and wants to be a lap dog. He is well mannered and would not hurt a fly. I have been checking your website and have not seen any puppies. Are you still breeding? I sure hope so and I will want a puppy in the next year or so.

Thanks again, Tracy

Dan, she is doing so good we just love her and enjoy her. Thank you. She is so sweet and very spoiled. It was a pleasure to meet you and if anyone I know wants a Basset I will definitely send them your way. All the best to you. 😉
