We are happy to be the 4th family to oversee and take care of the Full Cry Trigg Kennel's to see that the Trigg bloodlines are keep alive and well, and that the record keeping of the dog's are up to date and accurate as they should be. Col Trigg started this kennel in the 1800,s, and then it was turned over to Paul Greer also from Glasgow Ky. Hubert Shipley from Glasgow Ky was the last person to oversee the kennel untile we started in 2011. Their will be no breeding to any dogs thats ancestry can not be traced or proven, as long as we have Trigg,s the line will stay well for generations of younger and older hunter,s to enjoy. We want to thank all the many people that have gotten puppies from us, and all the support of our website Happy Hunting. "God Bless You All" ================================================================

Written by the Men that created the Trigg, Birdsong, and Maupin Foxhound's of today.
(Pic's and information on these pages were taken from the Hunter's Horn& Chase Magazine,and also from Col. Triggs book The American Foxhound).
For the foxhound hunters that are looking to find the correct information on the Trigg, Maupin, & Birdsong strain this is the place to look "Internet Archive Open Library" or "us.archive.org" Look for " The American Foxhound" By Col. Haiden C, Trigg published in 1890, 101 pgs. The little thin booklet everyone seem's to have does not go into detail as the original one does. You also need to look at " The Countryman" By George L.F. Birdsong 1863-1864. Emory University Atlanta, Georgia. This will give you the correct information on the "Henry Dogs" that everyone today calls the "Birdsong dogs".Uncle Wash Maupin from Madison County, Ky. Also has a lot to do with the Trigg Strain as you will find in the book. It took all three great men's dog's and lot's of effort to come out with the red fox hound known as the Trigg of today. We have a lot of misleading information out there. I can think of no one that knows more about them than Col. Trigg of Glascow, Ky, L.F. Birdsong from Thomaston, Georgia, and George Washington Maupin from Madison County, Ky. the three men that started and raised these dogs. So read their information and get the facts not second hand information. PS. The information by L.F. Birdsong on the Henry/Birdsong dogs was also in the July 1978 issue of the Hunters Horn pg 62. I found these articles to be very helpful to me in my research of the Trigg Hounds. Good Luck and Good Hunting to you.
He raised me most of my life and I am very thankful for it. He was my best friend, and a great role model, more of a dad than a popaw. I hope to keep the sport he loved, and the dogs he loved around for generation to come to enjoy. (He shore is missed and thought of often he is the reason for me keeping and breeding trigg hounds to keep this bloodline.).
