Basset Hound Dogs for Sale

Basset hounds have a lovable appearance thanks to their floppy ears, wrinkled forehead and soulful eyes. They were bred to help hunters track animals and have long bodies and short legs that keep them low to the ground to sniff out rabbits and deer. Although basset hounds aren’t fast, their scenting ability is second only to the bloodhound. This breed matures slowly and grows to full size around two years in age, reaching up to 15 inches in height and weighing between 40 and 65 pounds.

Breed Characteristics

Originally a pack dog, basset hounds are calm, good-natured and loyal and enjoy the companionship of humans and other animals. A moderate amount of exercise helps them stay fit, and they’re often happy with long walks or playtime in the yard. This breed does shed in large amounts, so regular brushing is important. Basset hounds require occasional baths, and their faces should be cleaned regularly because of the wrinkles and their tendency to drool.
