With their short, noble appearance and placid personalities, Basset Hounds are droopy, slow-paced tracking dogs. The name Basset comes from the French word bas, meaning “low”. Although, rarely taller than fourteen inches, they are considered big dogs, but on short legs.
They have loose skin on their faces - making them look sad. Their long, low ears drag on the ground, stirring up scents, while their folds and wrinkles further capture the scented air. Their distinct bark is loud and lingering.
