We have performed  Health/Genetic Tests on all of our adult dogs.  All puppies will have genetic testing before leaving for new homes  2024. Please note that our sire's are not available for stud. UPDATE we have updated some of our stuff so please read carefully. 

We use Nutrena Loyall Life All Life Stages Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food.

We use many different products from Revival  for our breeding males and females. We also use many other products they offer for our adult dogs and puppies. 

UPDATED: Legendary Basset Hounds is owned by Maureen and Otis Schermerhorn. Our bassets are Akc registered  with European Champion Imports. We are located in the beautiful Catskills Mountains of Upstate New York. Basset Hounds have always been apart of our lives. Our bassets are part of our family and not just breeders. All of our bassets are raised inside and are spoiled. We spend a lot of time caring for our puppies and adult bassets. All of our breeding lines are lines that we have imported into the United States. Or other reputable breeders have imported that we have worked with. We have chosen the lines we are currently breeding for the wonderful temperaments these lines have shown. Genetics is very important to us as well. Lots of wrinkles, short legs and long ears is what you will see in our bassets. We have added these lines to our breeding program to create what we now call our line. If anyone feels this is not our line because we have imported other Euro lines into ours that is fine. Everyone can have their opinion and we ask that you take your business elsewhere. This is not a competition for us with other breeders or people that think they know what they are doing with breeding. We do not do drama so please leave any drama out the door do not bring it into my home.  We have been breeding for 20+ so we have seen in all over the years. You will not be given false promises with us we are straight forward and honest. We want our clients to be happy and bring joy of a bassets to their family. We allow our new basset family's to visit puppies after our puppies have turned six weeks of age. At that time we will set up dates and times for visitors. We like our puppies to stay until they are 11/12weeks of age. We will keep puppies longer for there new owners if needed within reason if we are able to. If we are keeping puppies past pick up dates we will charge a daily fee per puppy. Puppies will receive vaccinations at 7 weeks of age and again at 11 weeks of age. Puppies staying after 11 weeks will receive vaccinations every four weeks until all puppy vaccinations have been given. Puppy worming's start at two weeks of age and are given every two weeks. We will only release puppies that are 100 % ready to leave. Please don't ask us to let puppies leave at or before 8 weeks of age its not going to happen. I'm very aware that their are breeders that do let puppies leave to soon that is not us.

We may have puppies at times that are a bit older then 14 weeks of age that may become available. If we have puppies that are older this does not mean they have any issues. These are what we call pick puppies meaning puppies we are waiting to see confirmation on to keep for breeding program. Sire and Dams of puppies are here at Legendary Bassets.
