Please call or e-mail us 10 days after mailing your initial screening form and we can discuss whether you have been initially approved for placement and at that time discuss in detail what our plans are for puppies in the future. It takes a while to get to know prospective homes and both the prospective new home and myself must be sure about the decision. As I have said, each placement is critical for the well being of the Bloodhound and its new family.

Thank you for your interest in the breed and in our lines........Claudette & Bill Lyons
