Greetings from David, Marlene and Karissa Groves, or what we call Buffalo Groves Bloodhound Ranch!
We are here to help you learn about Bloodhounds - Bloodhound History, Bloodhound Health, Bloodhound Standards, Bloodhound Puppies, and so much more!
We aren't the biggest Bloodhound Breeder (or Buffalo Ranch) and that's okay, we are quality over quantity, and love educating & advocating for Purebred Bloodhounds!
Buffalo Groves / Bloodhound Ranch is not a high volume Bloodhound Puppy Breeder! Our dogs are not kennel dogs, they are house dogs!
We will only breed Good Quality Bloodhounds who are Good Representatives of the AKC Bloodhound Breed Standard. We really strive to avoid breeding and creating giant sized bloodhounds, or bloodhounds with fat heads or flat feet, or excessive amounts of white. And of course, we breed healthy bloodhounds with OFA health certifications on Hearts (via echo-cardiogram), Hips, Elbows and Degenerative Myelopathy. We want beautiful healthy bloodhound puppies, beautiful healthy bloodhound adults, and beautiful healthy bloodhounds that can trail, track and work all day if needed!
We don't use ugly words like Puppy Mills or Back Yard Breeders to put others down and we don't create new fancy words, like Purposeful or Preservationist to try to make us more elite! We are just Honest-Accountable-Transparent Bloodhound Breeders... HAT Bloodhound Breeders if you will, but the bottom line is we are Responsible AKC Purebred Bloodhound Breeders!
If you are looking for a Bloodhound Puppy, we will do our best to assist you in Learning about the Bloodhound Breed and then make sure a Bloodhound is the right breed for you. We will try to help you secure the perfect Bloodhound Puppy to fit your family and your lifestyle. If we do not have a Bloodhound Puppy or Litter planned, we will refer you to other responsible Bloodhound Breeders (people we would consider getting a Bloodhound Puppy from.)
First, a couple things for you to think about...
(Really no wrong answers, just some self checking/reflecting for you)
If we have not chased you off , then please click on our Puppy Application PDF, fill it out and send it in. We will schedule a phone chat, or an in person visit, so we can address important questions (of yours & ours).
TRINITY is 2 yrs. She is a lovely bloodhound female (a very feminine looking girl) with a glorious bloodhound head, loads of skin and furnishings along with lovely long ears. She has an outstanding front and post sternum (both very much needed in the bloodhound breed). She has good rear angles, good feet, a proper scissor bite. She is absolutely the silliest and happiest bloodhound (sort of a nut) with the sweetest bloodhound temperament. She's a pretty girl with lots to offer the breed.
TRINITY is OFA Heart Normal (via Echo-cardogram) ,OFA Hips Good, OFA Elbows Normal, and OFA DM Clear.
