(Our Bloodhound family.)
Meet "Ch Cline's Creek Fly Me To The Moon" MT (Picard)
Picard was our first pick male from his litter. He has tons of prey and hunt drive, is naturally fearless, is stable no matter what we throw at him, is extremely social, is athletic, is structurally correct, and loves people. Did I mention athletic? He swims, he dives, he can jump from a sitting position, he can catch a ball thrown mid-air (very uncommon in this breed lol). This boy is the epitome of the bloodhound standard...a powerful hound. He is exactly what we needed for our program!
Picard has earned his MT title (mantrailing - 1/2 mile, aged 4 hours) and is currently training to trail wounded game.
Picard stands 26" tall and weighs 108 lbs. Picard is DM Normal, Cardiac Normal, Hips Good, and Elbows Normal. Chic #131365
Meet "Hansen's Koda on
the Loose" (Koda)
Koda was our pick pup from Zeus and Ellie's 2015 litter. As a requirement for all of our pups, she has tons of prey and hunt drive, is naturally fearless, is mentally stable, is extremely social, is structurally correct, and loves people. Koda is 24" tall and weighs 80 lbs. Koda and Picard's puppies are due May 27, 2019! DM normal, thyroid normal, hips, elbows, and heart clearances are within normal limits and can be seen on OFFA.org.

CH Hansen's All Hail Breaking Loose & It's
Nutrageous MT (Denali)
Denali (Picard x Ellie) is definitely a pup to watch! Like her father she loves everyone and has tons of prey and hunt drive...and she's beautiful to boot! Denali is 24" at the withers and weighs in at 80 lbs. She earned her MT (mantrailing title - 1/2 mile aged 4 hours) in 13 minutes and is currently training for her MTI. OFA clearances are underway. We hope to have a very special litter from Denali in 2020.
Meet "Hansen's On The Right Pathe" (Pathe)
Pathe was our pick pup from Zeus and Ellie's 2016 litter. She is her father's daughter! Wow! She has huge personality and is a spitfire on the trail! We bred Pathe to Picard in 2018. Several of her pups went to working homes and are doing very well. We are anxious to follow their careers! As required in all of our hounds, Pathe has tons of prey and hunt drive, is naturally fearless, is mentally stable, is extremely social, is structurally correct, and loves people. Pathe is 23" at the withers and weighs 78 lbs. OFA clearances are available on OFFA.org.
Meet "Hansen's Nutrageous Twisted Sister" (Lea)
Miss Lea (Picard x Pathe 2018) is 'my' dog. It's a running joke around here that Jeff steals every dog that I claim, lol. Lea is perfect to me. Structurally sound, size appropriate, and has a big personality. We are working toward our MT and beyond! More on Lea to come!
Meet "Ananda aka Adonis"
We imported Adonis from Hungary. He is stunning. Unfortunately Adonis did not pass his health clearances and will not be used in our breeding program. He has poor hips, entropion, and juvenile cataracts. Several of his siblings also have issues. With no guarantee from the breeder there is nothing we can do. The lesson...take your time looking for a puppy. Talk to and try to visit several breeders. Learn about the dogs in the pedigree. Ask for references and talk to owners of your breeders pups. Contact the American Bloodhound Club for a referral. Make sure the health clearances are done. Don't settle for a 'cheap' pup and don't be afraid to ask questions! It may take a year or two to find the right puppy but the wait and a little added cost for health clearances will be worth it in the end.
our mini-barn yard
We tend a few dairy goats, a couple of pigs now and then, and chickens on the homestead. I like the Nubians, not just because they produce awesome milk that's better for us as well as our puppies, but because they have long ears! Haha! Never a dull moment here on the homestead!
