Welcome to the home of Corkey Basset Hounds in Virginia for 24 years.
Welcome to Corkey Kennels. We are located in Virginia, in the Blue Ridge
Mts. We have been hobby breeders of only Basset Hounds for 24 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.
WE ARE EXCITED TO BE IN THE SHOW RING WITH OUR BASSETS AND TO HAVE THEM EVALUATED BY
JUDGES ALL OVER THE EAST COAST AREA. AFTER 23 YEARS OF BREEDING, OUR BREEDING PROGRAM HAS PROVEN TO MEET THE STANDARDS OF
THE BREED IN CONFORMATION, TEMPERAMENT AND HEALTH. WE DO THROMBOPATHIA AND GONIOSCOPY TESTING ON OUR HOUNDS TO PROTECT THE
BREED WE LOVE.
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

5 kids in law and 6 of our 10 grand babies
