Our thanks go to Rudy for entrusting Dougie to us.  Our sincere appreciation to the judges who have recognized the qualities that Douglas brings to our kennel.  Dougie's beautiful backline and reach and drive and temperament are second to none.

"Pepe," pictured here at 12 months was bred by Claudia Orlandi, Guillermo Gonzalez, Nancy Richmond and Sue Frischmann.  He is owned by Claudia, Guillermo, Sue and our newest team member Niket Rele.  

Pepe won the breed at Westminster in 2016 at the age of 15 months.  

He is shown this year only at specialties or special events while he grows up.  He has already to his credit five Bests In Specialty Shows.  Pepe is shown by Sue Frischmann with an occasional appearance with Candy Carswell when Sue is tied up with puppies at Topsfield. 

We are proud to present this up and coming young dog to the fancy.  He shows great promise and is blessed with correct 45 Degree angles, front and rear, beautiful backline, great temperament and wonderful breed type. 


Our thanks to all the judges who have recognized the quality of our Basset Hounds, both in the breed and group rings.
