Welcome to the Hill Elkhound Family Farm Website!
Norwegian Elkhound Owner/
Our family in 2010
We are a small-farm family that lives a humble, rural life a few miles outside of the central Illinois town of Nokomis. We greatly admire the Norwegian Elkhound breed and have chosen to raise them exclusively -- we have no other dog breed on our farm. We are hobby breeders that produce only a few litters of puppies a year. We cherish our integrity and simply desire to fill the need of other hearts/homes that seek an Elkhound puppy to love.
We DO NOT have puppies at this time :(
We do hope to have more again in the future though!
If you would like to be notified when pups are born again
on our farm, please email me at the address below
to be put on our contact list.
We believe Elkhounds to be the best all-around
breed for our family & farm. We do all we can to maintain the standard/quality of our dogs as we have pups to share. We don't breed for show quality, but merely to provide other families with what we believe to be ideal pets and companions.
We give great effort to prolong the health of our dogs & their offspring by feeding high quality food, worming/pest control current and shots up to date.
We strive to be able to provide the pups with plenty of care and socialization (usually not too hard to accomplish with our kids helping us do that :). We train our dogs to behave appropriately and enjoy their company everyday. They are raised free-roaming outdoors since we have the acreage to do that, but they have kennels attached to outbuildings when they do need to be contained (for example: when we are working our farm ground, have an outdoor gathering or they are whelping). With our set up, pups naturally learn to go outside for their "business" from an early age. Our dogs are raised around cats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys and donkeys, so have learned to respect other species presence. Although they still find the sport of herding the donkeys in when they get out to be amusing!
This is our latest addition to our spotted miniature donkeys born 5/16/2013. Feebi is the daughter of Desi & Lucy. She joins brother Benji (born 10/31/11) and sister Cici (born 1/11/12).
We also have chickens & a couple of turkeys!! :) We favor the Silver & Golden Laced Wyandotte breed but have some Delaware and some mixed breeds given to us as well as hatched from our other chickens. We love our Bourban Red Turkeys named Dora and Diego though. Needless to say, THEY won't be on our thanksgiving table anytime soon! We also have a great time collecting all our eggs now!
If you would like to be notified when we have pups again, please email me at the address below with that request and I will be sure to put you on the announcement list of when more puppies arrive on our farm :)
Feel free to view our photo album for pictures of all our adult dogs.
PLEASE NOTE: The information on my website is intended to be useful to those seeking to adopt a puppy as a family pet/companion and to let you know more about who we are as responsible breeders.
I have had to limit some of the information on my site due to a particular group of individuals harrassing me about the content as well as my dogs and breeding program. If you have any questions though, please feel free to email me and I will do my best to get you answers directly.
