Jackpot history


indexphoto1Welcome to Jackpot. We’re Kevin and Kim Shupenia, a husband and wife team who have bred and shown our winning hounds since 1991. We specialize in three breeds: Beagles, Harriers and English Foxhounds.Our Hounds

We pride our hounds, born in our kennel, on their agility and manner as well as their robust health and joy. Visitors to our kennel will meet up to five generations of hounds in Jackpot’s breeding program, from our foundation stock to the newest puppies.


Occasionally, we have pups for sale or those who don’t like to show and are looking for a home.


Showing is a fun way to spend time, travel the country, and play with the pack. We take our hounds, their health, and our responsibility to them, seriously.

Ribbons, championships, movie stars, and best-in-shows have given us insights we’re delighted to share.


We look forward to answering your questions to the best of our ability and would appreciate  (gentle) corrections if you spot any inaccuracies. Enjoy the website!
