Welcome to Hilltop Hounds of Alabama, where we raise only AKC registered European, Brazilian, and American Basset Hounds. We are located in the rolling hills of North Alabama just 7 miles off of I-65.

A Family Operation

We would like to tell you a little about ourselves at Hilltop Hounds. We are a family operation; Harlan, Vickie, our son James and his wife Stephanie along with our grandchildren Rozalyn and Clayton live on a beautiful 40 acre farm where we also raise registered Angus Cattle. Our first basset hound was a pet for our granddaughter Rozalyn about nine years ago. After raising different types of animals over the years, we fell in love with basset hounds due to their laid-back ways and their gentleness with children. Because of these traits we have decided to exclusively raise this lovable breed.

Happy, Healthy Bloodline

We are starting our program with some great bloodlines. A great deal of time and effort was put into finding the absolute best male and females for our program. After our first male hound was diagnosed with a hereditary shoulder condition, we were extremely fortunate to acquire an even more striking male imported from Lake Park Bassets of Brazil. He is from two championship bloodlines and is the latest in several generations of show quality dogs. We would like to thank Leonir Bampi at Lake Park Bassets and Ben at Huff Hounds for providing us with our European and Brazilian puppies to be able to get our program off to a great start.. We are looking forward to raising quality basset hounds for many years to come. These dogs have brought a lot of laughter and joy into our lives and we know their puppies will do the same for you.
