We Have Endured....We Have Always Been

Welcome To Fuimus Bloodhounds!  

We are a small breeder an hour outside of Edmonton, Alberta Canada.  We have been in the breed since 2006, We strive to breed quality bloodhounds, that are sound in mind and body.  For us, temperament is just as important as passing hips, elbows, and cardiac.  We believe a bloodhound should be an easy to live with dog,  weather you are showing, tracking, or a extension of the family, at the end of the day the reason anyone gets a dog is to enrich their life, not cause more stress.   

We are extremely proud of our hounds, and feel very fortunate to be able to share in this unique breed.  Our bloodhounds are more than our pets, each one of them have a very special place with in our family.

Bloodhounds are very affectionate, gentle, and noble animals, which make them an exceptional pet and companion.  With that said, they do come with their challenges.  They are independent thinkers, and require equally as exceptional owners.  

Over the years in our journey with these amazing creatures, we have concentrated on pedigrees that we believe embody what the bloodhound should be.  We have spent countless hours training, studying nutrition and health.   To date we have mainly been competing in conformation show events, but for our newest, and most exciting endeavour will be training the tracking dog.   Webelieve a dog that is well put together, and wins in the show ring, should also be able to excel on the trail, and do its job all day.  Form follows function! 

"He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds.  He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.  He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.  (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.  When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.  When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags.  Without him, I am only another man.  With him, I am all-powerful.  He is loyalty itself.  He has taught me the meaning of devotion.  With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.  His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.  His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.  He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him.  And I expect I will - as I always have.  He is my dog."
