Long, long story short, my parents' dog had to be PTS last week after a long term attempt to keep him happy after being diagnosed with heart failure. When he got so bad, my mom called me, asked me to go over to her house and see for myself if he was suffering. It was painfully obvious that he was, and that he wasn't going to last long. They made the decision to end his torment.
And so now, my dad, being the avid dog lover he is, feels depressed and unhappy in his empty home. I'm helping them find a reputable bloodhound breeder, preferrably one near us, so either Michigan or Wisconsin, even so far as Indiana or Illinois would be ok, if necessary. They are willing to trust a breeder far away, where they'd need to have him shipped, but only if they come highly recommended, and enough reseach can be done on them.
I've done all teh regular searches, I've looked at the ones advertised on TP, etc. I'm just trying to cover all bases. Maybe someone knows one or has a bloodhound from a great breeder.
I know about the no advertising rules, and I know you can't link the info. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional info that may be helpful that can't be posted here. Thanks!
I live in Wisconsin. In our town, we have a Basset Hound Club (many owners). I did notice that quite a few of them had Bloodhounds as well. I will check into it and if I find anything out, I'll email you.
