Claire (Left) and Elise with PupsClaire Cartmell is the driving force behind Clan Cusidh. Never has a person cared more for a Scottish Deerhound than Claire, the original Cusidh Maither.

Claire is kept busy raising the next generation of Cusidh, re-homing rescue hounds and showing the dogs or looking after the Deerhounds. She has a Ph.D in English Literature with a book collection to rival that of a small library.

Claire has re-homed hundreds of dogs over the years through her St. Hubert's Hound Rescue.

Claire is always happy to hear from people with Cusidh Deerhounds, rescue hounds or dogs in general. Contact Claire here .
