Sandyhill Basset Hounds has been in business since 1991. Dan said he has been a dog and horse lover all of his life. Raising dogs all started when his family found a basset beagle mixed pup sitting at the door of their little cabin in the woods. His family brought Max home and fell in love with the demeanor and temperament of the hound breeds. They purchased an AKC female basset having no intention of pursuing breeding as they have for the last twenty plus years. However, they discovered raising children and puppies together was a lot of fun. Currently, they are still enjoying animals, dogs in particular, and putting smiles on new owner faces.Today the puppies are also putting smiles on their grandchildren’s faces. One of their pups had her picture in a magazine as a UKC champion in 2005. Dan and his wife raised their family on a small farm in northern Indiana and have been involved all their life with agriculture and school teaching. After Dan retired from teaching, he began to raise English Mastiffs as well. Sandyhill English Mastiffs has been in business since 2001. Dan said he really enjoys breeding the best specimens possible. Improving the conformation and maintaining breed standards is crucial to raising pups worthy of his clients’ trust. Two of his pups from a recent mastiff litter are being readied for the AKC show ring.
