In our never-ending attempts to improve our breeding program we have
been adding "Euro" genetics. The first Euros were Louis and Lila, they
are 3/4 Euro and have worked out wonderfully. Their pedigree
combined V. Hollandeim and Moravia Bray bloodlines. We were so
impressed with the results of combining these dogs with our existing
American bloodlines that we recently imported two more pups from
Moravia Bray. They are from her great Zenobia female and the I'm
Your Man v. Grunsven male that is seeing regular use in their kennel. I
hope to again combine these outcross genetics with my existing
American base and to also cross this newest pair with Louis and Lila.
Watch our website for the results or feel free to contact us for more info
or just to talk Bassets.
