Hello and thank you for visiting the coonhound crew! We are just a Texas couple who work hard and play hard and enjoy raising, hunting, and showing our Redbone Coonhounds. We've worked hard and have come a long way, with lots of higher goals for the future.
I grew up with redbones - all coonhounds in fact - owned by my beloved late grandfather. My favorite of his hunting dogs was a walker/redbone cross with the uninspired name of 'Ol Red. Red was a great hunting dog but also my special friend. I moved out of state and my grandfather had to sell all of his dogs due to age, but I never forgot those hounds, especially 'Ol Red, and in 1996 I attended the Texas State Championships and saw my very first coonhound bench show. The hounds I'd grown up with were hunting dogs, so I'd never seen 'conformation' coonhounds and I was absolutely blown away by the dog that won the overall that day, a dog named Reverend Red who remains to this day in my mind the epitome of redbone beauty. I was just in awe at the beauty of The Reverend and I told my husband "Someday I'm going to have a dog just like that". An ad in a local paper led me to the man who would become one of my greatest mentors, James Dickson, who just happened to have a litter just whelped that was sired by Reverend, and of course I had to have one.
Ten years later that first redbone puppy has led to more than a dozen beautiful dogs, many of which trace back to Reverend Red, numerous major show wins, and a long waiting list for puppies shipped all over the country. In addition to great advice from James, I have been blessed with the friendship and direction of Katina Childers of Tree Rizin' Redbones, who has honored me with many of her best dogs and given loads of priceless advice on building my lines.
In 2007 my life was blessed with my new partner in the kennel and in life, my husband Stefan Hill. He was responsible for building the state of the art concrete kennels with lighted exercise area and the climate controlled whelping barns. He's also developed quite an eye for selection, and is the 'chief puppy picker' of the house, as well as becoming quite an accomplished showman.
Although I've at times also owned Treeing Walkers, English and Bluetick coonhounds, my heart and passion will always be in the Redbones. We take a progressive approach to our breeding and placement program to produce dogs that can hunt and show as well as fit into a family situation, screening our buyers carefully to make sure a redbone is right for them and that we choose just the right puppy for them, with many satisfied customers.
