Learn about Basset Hounds Pet Insurance
Originally developed as a scent hound, the Basset Hound stands no higher than 14 inches at the shoulder but has big-dog stamina and strength. Sometimes, the Basset may be stubborn but it is a charming dog breed. The breed is bred for hunting small games like rabbits. It has an exceptional scenting and trailing ability; as a matter of fact, its scenting ability is second only to Bloodhound.
Back in the days when hunting was a way of life for French aristocrats, Bassets were their popular choice due to the breed’s persistence of scent and accuracy. The breed is believed to have descended from the St. Hubert Hound, the forebear of the Bloodhound. Mutation in the St. Hubert Hound resulted in a short-legged and dwarfed hound. This was later bred on purpose to produce Basset Hound.
