Hi and welcome to this my about us page. my name is Lyn and together with my husband Gordon we are LYNSLUV Bassets. Almost 30 years ago I bought my husband a male Basset Hound (whom he called Goliath) as a present. I have to admit it was love at first sight and from that point on we have dedicated our time and energies to that most lovable of canine characters, the Basset Hound. Outgrowing our suburban home we decided that a relocation to the country would help and so almost twenty years ago we moved to our 80 acres of Basset paradise near Dublin in South Australia. With miles of pristine uninhabited tidal beaches to romp around on and acres and acres of lightly wooded grasslands to snuffle through, I think we live in Basset heaven.
After decades of successful showing, we now take a more laid back approach to both showing and life in general. We spend every day walking and playing with our Bassets and enjoy every minute. I believe that this is reflected in our philosophy regarding our breeding program. The show ring is a fickle and fashionable place where “what’s in vogue” can change overnight. The reality is that ninety five percent of Basset babies go to companion homes, not the show ring, so we have skewed our breeding practices to help us strive to produce Bassets that are not only true to type and sound of limb, but also (I think) fabulous companion animals. Using the F.C.I. standard for the Basset Hound as our “blueprint” and availing ourselves of the most up to date Veterinary protocols, every baby Basset we bring into this World is bred with as much knowledge, care and love as we can put into them and it is for these reasons I believe a LYNSLUV baby is an exceptional Basset.
If you wish to learn more about us and our hounds I invite you to take a wander through our web site, where I hope you will come to see and appreciate how much both Gordon and I love the Basset Hound.
