Dreams do come true!

In 2014, we visited the world-renowned van Grunsven Kennel in Holland, where we met Rudy and Riky Smits and their famous Basset Hounds. It was on this visit that we realised that our small Bassefied kennel needs these bloodlines for future improvement of the breed in South Africa. In December 2014, Whoopi joined our family and in October 2015, Rocco arrived in Cape Town.

With his charming personality and true Basset Hound type, Rocco attained 8 Challenge Certificates and 2 Reserve Challenge Certificates at 10 championship shows entered, qualifying as a South African Champion* in April 2016.

Whoopi's superb construction and effortless movement led to numerous Puppy and Junior Group placings and qualification for Western Cape Top Puppy 2015. In April 2016 she became a South African Champion*.

Our vG's, as we affectionately call them, are a dream come true for us as exhibitors, but also as breeders as we are planning the first full van Grunsven litter to be born in South Africa soon!
