Welcome to Corkey Kennels. We are located in the southwest part of the state
of Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mts. We have been hobby breeders of only Basset Hounds for 21 years.
We have devoted much time and effort over the years to
this breed. In doing so we have learned so much but in that we always realize how much more there is to learn.
Our home and kennel are nestled on ten acers of land in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mtns.
We welcome visitors, especially if you are considering adding one of our pups to your family. You are welcome to come and
visit our dogs as many other people have done over the years.
God has given us the privilege of being able to be stewards over these wonderful animals
and with that comes much responsibility, which we take very seriously.
"for every animal of the forest is mine,and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every
bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine" Psalm 50:10
It was a great weekend for our Bassets at the Mattaponi Kennel Club, May 16th and 17th. "Zen's
Corkey's Mighty Moe" took Select Dog each day being both majors with 8 points towards his Grand Champion Title. This
boy has gotten 6 majors in a row in the past 6 shows and just turned 1 yr old. Then our home grown girl, "Corkey's Red
White Tulip Tilly", also 1 yr old, was entered as well, this being her very first show, gets Winners Bitch with it also
being a major and now has 3 points towards her champion title, and then our little "Corkey's Coffee and Candy" 9
months old, took reserves winners bitch behind Tilly. Professional pictures coming. Random shots at the ring, Moe is pictured
first, then Tilly and then CC.
Got invited to be in "The
Bulger" Basset Hound magazine, me and Moe on the cover of the May issue.
