Kennel Basbuddy is located in the town of Turku. We live on edge of town and our yard is bordered by a forest, which makes daily walks in the woods and on the river banks possible for our bassets.
A long-cherised dream was fulfilled when we got our first Basset Hound in 2001. Öhkömönkijän Huushollerska, or as we call her, Justiina, won our hearts and conquered our sofa, and I knew then that Basset Hound is truly my breed.
At the moment we have six Basset Hound bitches.
Later Justiina gave us two litters. In 2005 we were joined by another Basset Hound, EUJW-06 EEW-07 FIN&LV&EST Ch Basstrick’s Care Me, or ”Kerttu.” From Kerttu’s first litter in 2007 I kept a black bitch "Gita" C.I.E Nord Ch FI & SE & DK & EE & SI & UA Ch EEJW-08 EEW-10 Basbuddy Chiquita Gita.
From the same litter I placed a tricolour male "Simo" FI & EE Ch Basbuddy Cix-Pack Simon – on breeding terms with my friend Anu Klemola in Paimio. "Hillevi" FI Ch Basbuddy Dolcevita Rita from Kerttu's second litter, joined us in 2009 and "Edith" Basbuddy Edith Bunker from Kerttu's third litter in 2011. Our newest joy is Basbuddy Fiona Fancy from Gita's first litter.
Our Bassets live as part of our family and thus mine is a small-scale kennel, producing one litter a year, at most.
My goal as a breeder is to bring up healthy, with excellent temperaments, nicely built and well-moving Basset Hounds.
I have signed the Finnish Kennel Club’s Breeder Commitment and completed both basic and advanced breeder courses.
Kennel Basbuddy was awarded the Basset Hound breeder of the Year in 2010 and 2011 in Finland.
