The Basset Hound originated in medieval France and was a popular hunting dog. They were bred to hunt in packs so they are very social and affectionate. They are also calm, mild mannered and gentle.

The first usage of the word “Basset” in describing a breed of dog with short legs can be found in early French writings of the 16th century.

After the French Revolution (1789), the Basset Hound became a favoured hunting dog because it was a slower moving hound that could more easily be followed by foot and was more useful in tracking smaller game.

Most Bassets’ enjoy the company of other dogs, pets and family members; they can get lonely if frequently left alone for long periods of time. They also need daily attention and quality time with their owners.

Basset Hounds can be both sensitive and stubborn. They may get upset when scolded and at times may behave as though they don’t hear your commands.

Bassets’ can follow a scent for hours and have great endurance. While they don’t mind spending a lot of time napping or spending the day lounging around, they have a tendency to become overweight. Therefore, a Basset Hound needs regular exercise to keep its weight in check.

The Bassets’ coat is smooth, short and thick with loose elastic skin. Their short coat is easy to care for and doesn’t require the involved grooming needed by the longer haired breeds. Still, Basset’s do shed and weekly brushing helps to limit the amount of hair that ends up in the house.

A healthy Basset can be expected to live 10–14 years.

The Basset Hound is heavier boned than any other dog of its size and carries two–thirds of its weight in the front; it can swim only for very short distances.

Because Bassets’ are a scent tracking dog, they have a deep–seated desire to follow its nose and may wander off and get lost if left unattended in an unfenced back yard. So to keep your Basset safe, never leave it outside unattended unless it is in a fenced area.

The Basset Hound is more prone to becoming overweight and obese with age. Proper nutrition and regular exercise are necessary as a preventative measure.

The Basset Hound has short legs but, it is not a small dog. Basset’s usually weigh between 23–29.5kgs (50–65lbs).
