We happen to have a Basset, a rescue. She is very stubborn, moves at her own pace, and is not always nice to the other dogs here. Her barking is also annoying. She is beautiful and we love her despite all this but some people would have gotter rid of her by now. Don't go by looks. Check out the whole package.
How many id's do you have? You know you can use the same id more than once on TP, you don't have to make up new ones everytime you log in. I notice that you posted the same comment using another id earlier.
Bassets are a nice breed. They aren't for everyone, they are a member of the Hound group and not everyone has the lifestyle to fit their needs. Also, being scent hounds, it's not unlike a Basset to put his head to the ground and follow his nose. Exactly what he was created to do.
I love the Basset waddle and their long, long ears, especially on the puppies. It does take them some time to grow into the ears and it is so cute to watch them step on those massive ears when climbing stairs to come into the house.
Hello everyone! I am a newbie to this site and I do not own a Bassett (mine is a German Shepherd/Chow mix) but I LOVE all dogs,cats, Horses,heck I love all animals which includes wildlife(even those that could kill my nutzoid butt(grin))! but bassetts are cute and i'm sure hilarious at times like every dog can be, don't you agree?
