Pedigree: GCH Daddy Douglas van Grunsven x GCH Vision Spectrum Topsfield Love A Mystery
Date of Birth: 6-Feb-2015

Sweet Beatrice was the little lady of our basset pack. Quiet and reserved she becomes a tiger when anyone tries to take her favorite toy or biscuit away. We tried training Bea for different canine sports but she prefers to be a house dog and enjoys a good cuddle with her humans.

Beatrice has joined a wonderful family in Holden, Massachusetts.  Thanks to their endless patience she is quickly becoming an integral part of their family.

Bea was an amazing show dog in her prime.  Lovely structure and movement, she lacked interest and enjoyment in competition.  An unfortunate incident at the 2016 BHCA Nationals left her completely turned off by dog shows so she has become a house dog.

Some Bea’s career highlights and notes:

  • Conformation:
    • Winners Bitch/Best of Winners/Best of Opposite Sex from the 6-9 month puppy class at the Pilgrim Basset Hound Club 2015 Annual Specialty Show.
    • Best in Sweepstakes at the Pilgrim Basset Hound Club 2015 Annual Specialty Show.
    • 1st in Bred by Exhibitor Bitch class at the 2016 Basset Hound Club of America National Specialty Show.
    • Best of Opposite Sex in Maturity Stakes at the 2016 Basset Hound Club of America National Specialty Show.
    • Additional 4-point major at the 2017 Pilgrim Basset Hound Club supported entry during Eastern Dog Club’s All-breed Show.
    • Finished her championship with a 4-point major during the 2018 Canfield Cluster, handled by her good buddy professional handler Candy Carswell.
  • Tricks:

    • While she has no obedience titles, Bea is the most obedient dog we own.
