BASSET HOUND



Ancient in lineage and aristocratic in appearance, the Basset Hound is a long, low scenting hound of French ancestry. The Basset's admirers consider him to be among the most beautiful and unusual of all hounds. His dignified look is owed in great part to a large, majestic head adorned with long, velvety ears, a wrinkled brow and dark, soulful eyes. The Basset Hound is one of the most easily recognizable breeds. Whether tirelessly trailing rabbits through dense cover, or finding the elusive loaf of bread on your kitchen counter, the Basset captures the devotion of its owners.
