Just a quick note to let you know our Charlie is doing wonderful.  He was from a litter born 11/12/2009.  We picked him up on Christmas eve as a gift to our daughter.  He has been a member of our family since that day.  He is the sweetest dog.  He loves to sit on the porch and bark at anything he sees coming down the road! (which makes him a great security dog, although he wouldn't hurt a flea). At night he stretches across the sofa, yes, he gets first bids.  Everyone has to squeeze around him or sit elsewhere. I admit he is a bit spoiled but that is our fault.  Never had a health issue.  We love him.

I wanted to let you know that Cassie is doing great and is a happy dawg!  She is a "treasure chest" and still very healthy and active despite her 10 years - a tribute to your breeding practices.

Deeva was from a litter born in March of 2013, and she is coming up on her 2nd birthday.  She has grown into an absolutely beautiful red and white Basset!  She loves her people but is definitely a Daddy's girl, often scolding me if I do not climb the cellar stairs quick enough to greet her when I get home from work.  Her absolute favorite game is keep away and demonstrates remarkable agility when running around our fenced back yard.  Feeding time is always very important and she can be very vocal at supper time if we are late, I believe she can tell time.  Her two favorite places to nap are on the back of the couch when the sun is out or curled up on Dad in our recliner.  While the Mommy person says "The Deeve" can be a brat, we just love her to pieces and are so happy she is part of our lives.  Dave & Val - Waterbury Connecticut

Hey there.  Just wanted to send you all a quick note and let you know how Oliver is doing.  He is absolutely the sweetest dog (friend) and is doing great!  Oliver is about 70 pounds and loves to be in our front yard while all of the kids are outside playing.  My wife has found a special tickle spot on Oliver and its hilarious to see him bounce around when we are tickling him.  What a joy it is to have Oliver as part of the family?

Happy birthday to Big Ben & Cassie's litter on 9/18/2010!  Maybel, now Gracie Mae is the most precious girl you could ever dream of.  We took her to Dog Mountain, VT for this, her 2nd birthday and she had a blast!  She loves to play ball, is accomplished on the agility course, travels well and loves people.  A happy, sweet girl she sure is!!  You know we were hurting from our loss when we came to you 2 years ago, so thanks from the bottom of our hearts for such a wonderful member of our family!

We received our basset hound puppy, Lulu, from Amy when Lulu was 7 weeks old.  Lulu is now 9 weeks old and thriving!  The entire experience was wonderful and seamless.  We loved how Amy sent us weekly photos of the puppies, as well as videos, which really helped in our selection of our basset puppy.  We narrowed it down to two puppies and when I asked Amy to send me more pictures of the two we were considering, she immediately obliged and created another album of pictures of both puppies so we could make our decision.  We love our new puppy so much and it's quite evident she was well cared for in the Whisnant's home prior to us "adopting" her.  Our puppy has gorgeous long ears (which grow every day) and those great wide basset paws.  Her facial expressions are the most hilarious and my neighbors have agreed Lulu is the cutest puppy they have ever seen!  Thank you for a wonderful experience and a great basset hound!

Hi Amy,
Almost a year ago, Billy and I adopted Crocus.  We have sinced renamed him Trip, lol for obvious reasons.  He is the light of my life.  I have owned many dogs in the past but this one is the absolute love of my life.  Billy told me that I would never have another dog after I own a Basset and he was right.  I am so glad that we adopted him from your family and he became one of ours.  I wish you the best and I hope we meet again soon!!  I will be sending you a picture.  Take care.

We received our puppy Dudley from the April 2012 "Litter of Flowers" and I can't say enough about how much we have loved the entire experience with Long Eared Hounds.  We researched many breeders before deciding on this one and I can say that I have never seen another breeder that sends weekly pictures of your puppy so that you can watch them grow.  This really gave us something to look forward to each week until we could get him.  The day we picked him up, he was so playful and happy.  We had a six hour ride home and her was perfect. A six hour trip seemed to fly by with Dudley.  He traveled so well, only crying when her need to potty.  He gave kisses and slept the entire way home.  He has fit in to our home so perfectly, and since losing our basset in March, he has really helped to flll a hugh void in our hearts.  He is so playful and extremely friendly to everyone.  I thank God for bring Dudley and Long Eared Hounds into our lives at such a sad time for my family.  This family truly cares about each one of the puppies and it shows in the quality and nature of our puppy.  Thank you Long Eared Hounds for giving my family the gift of unconditional love again, we will forever be greatful!!!

Love the Stanley family!

Hello All. I was just sending a hello from myself as well as WEEZY. I bought him last Feb. 2011 and he recently turned 1 in December. He is 50 lbs and a real class act. Has been a VERY healthy dog since I got him from yall and has had an indoor life since I brought him home. He has been a local celebrity wherever he goes and people seem to only want to touch his LOONGGG ears. He has been a real friend to me and if you can make it passed the potty training, everything else they learn fast. I will send a picture soon. Just stopping by here remembering the days before I came from Raleigh to there to pick him up. He used to sleep on my chest and now I rest my head on him! I love the Weez and hope everyone who receives one from you enjoys, loves, and cares for theirs like we do ours.

Hi Amy and Family,
I can not thank you all enough for our sweet basset "Fillmore." We got him valentines weekend 2011. He is the 4th basset I've had in my entire life and by far the best basset hound ever! He is the second puppy we ever had shipped and you did an incredible job with the shipping. His crate was enormous for such a little guy and he had his own personal food bowls and a toy to play with for his long flight to Reno, NV. He has been such a great addition to our family, and made a wonderful best friend for our other basset "Belly Button." You guys are top quality breeders and are by far the best at what you do! Your puppies and dogs are beyond top quality.....they're absolutely wonderful and amazing. I will never get a basset from anywhere or anyone else. Thanks for everything.
Love, The Smart Family

Good morning Amy and family,

We purchased Amos form you about 9 months ago and he just turned 1 year old yesterday.  He is, by far, the best dog we have ever had.  He has the best, loving temprement.  Amos has plans to be a certified therpay dog and go to our local children's hospital and provide smiles the way he does for our family.  I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you so much for entrusting us with this amazing animal.  We will be back to get another from you.  Amos has made us a believer that Bassett Hounds are the only dogs for us.

Dear Amy,
Just wanted to drop you a little line all the way from San Diego CA! We purchased a hound from u guys a couple of years ago. You guys named her "cutie pie". Her name is now Phoebe. She was one of Sassy's pups. Half French, half Appalachian bigfoot. She was delivered to us Feb 28th 2008. She is now two years old and what a big girl she is!! Very loving and playful. She loves to go on walks and loves to have her paw held. She will walk up to you and and paw at you till you "hold her hand". Her big brown spots look like the round ends on a jigsaw puzzle, the bigger she gets, the bigger the puzzle! Just wanted to say hi and thank you. Im glad you made it through your scary ordeal in 2009. GOD IS GOOD!! Have a happy new year guys!!

First of all, I want to say that this site is amazing! We had a rescue basset hound for a short time and I had to give him up. I think he was a one owner dog and we are a family. I found your site on a Google search. We are considering raising a puppy. I had gotten quite attached to our doggy while we fostered him and I just sat here and had a good cry. I think I have fallen in love with the breed . Look for future emails from me. I was delighted to find your site. It looks like you LOVE what you do. I think we would get a pup who has a lot of love to give.

We got to bring our Ellie Mae home March 8th and she is just the most beautiful little basset I have ever seen. She has brought so much love and fun into our home. Along with Ellie Mae we do have a beagle and a shar-pei and they just love her as well! After viewing this site and through contacting the Whisnant family via emails, I had no doubt this was the place to get our new family member. Thanks for everything Whisnant family!

Joe and Amy - Just wanted to give you an update of our 8 week old puppy, Bucca (from Dory and Winchester). She is the sweetest puppy and we are having a great time with her. She had her first vet visit with us today with no issues. And we are very happy with the housebreaking - she is doing very well. We will probably be looking for Bucca's sister in the spring time. Happy New Year, Kristen and Matt

thank you guys so much this was one of the best decision we made coming down there.  Our son has a shadow named Duke and they are inseperable.  Duke was taken for his first set of shots last december and now he weighs 15.1 pounds and the vet said he is just the right weight for how much he is growing.  the only down fall i have had is trying to get our son to eat his own food without trying to share it with duke.  thank you again have a great new year!

Hi Joe & Amy,
Just wanted to give you an update on Lady.  She is doing great. She is the rule of the house and is growing so fast.  She has taken over the loveseat and recliner. She had her shots on 11/10/07 and our vet was very impressed, he stated that we had found an excellent breeder.  Lady has helped us tremendously with our healy process.  We will keep you posted.
Merry Christmas!!!
