BAS­SET HOUND

Outdoor Life - - HUNTING INSIDER -

○ BREED NOTES Long-eared and low to the ground (15 inches tall at most), bas­sets are beloved for their floppy ears, droopy jowls, and laid-back per­son­al­ity. Weights range from 40 to 60 pounds.

○ HUNT­ING STYLE Bas­sets may be the ideal cot­ton­tail dog. They move slowly enough that rab­bits just hop ahead, hardly ever hol­ing up. And the deep, low, bawl­ing hound song is mu­sic to any hunter’s ears.

○ BONUS POINTS For the lower-en­ergy or ma­ture fam­ily, bas­sets are per­fect. They love peo­ple and don’t re­quire an ex­ces­sive amount of daily ex­er­cise.
