Mochras Hounds Irish Wolfhounds and Basset Fauve de Bretagne

Mochras Irish Wolfhounds first began in 1970.  Despite my lifetime difficulty of running a work career parallel with a small kennel of this big breed, numbers have ranged between two and eight Wolfhounds during these years, with several champions owned or bred here. My last wolfhound died in December 2015.

I’ve been a member of the KC’s Accredited Breeder Scheme since 2009 and have a number of accolades. Take a look at the KC’s site to confirm.

I fell for the Basset Fauve de Bretagne breed many years ago and we acquired our first in 2005. I attended an Elevage in Normandy with our friends who had one of the earlier examples of the breed in the UK in the early 90s. We now own five UK  and/or Irish champions and are enthusiastic owners, breeders and exhibitors of these charming little hounds. Rather thrilled to be top breeder in Ireland in 2012 and in the UK in 2013 based on the wins of our homebred hounds. One of our boys is the first male Basset Fauve de Bretagne holder of a Junior Warrant.
