An elongated body, short legs and long drooping ears ... but it's especially his soft eyes and sad look that makes the Basset Hound really unique! Originally from Britain, the Basset Hound is a breed of hunting dog used for its flair and determination. He is enduring and is also used for hunting in packs during which he makes his deep voice resound. His hair is smooth and short, and his dress is usually tricolor (black, white and brown). His long tail, carried always cheerfully, gives the true measure of his character who is actually very happy. Behind his melancholy air hides a formidable playmate, sweet and friendly. Highly sought after as a pet, her placid nature adapts wonderfully to family life.
