The Basset Hound is not a breed for everyone. At first glance, they give the impression of sad and clumsy dogs. However, in reality they are tireless hunters, active companions and loyal friends. There are several features in the appearance of this dog that make it easy to distinguish it from dogs of its own breed. These include large folds of skin, short legs, long ears and sad eyes. You can immediately recognize her from the photograph.

  The first impression of this dog is deceptive: it seems that it is lazy and is always sad and lazy. However, under the folds of skin hides the strong body of a hound. Bassets are playful, good runners, and good at having fun. These are cheerful, loyal and very smart dogs. Dog handlers consider them the smartest dogs living next to people.
  Despite the popularity of the Basset Hound, this dog is not for everyone. It is not recommended to have her as your first pet, as she requires experience in caring for and raising. Basset hounds choose obedient owners. With other owners, the dog will behave as it wants. The breed is not suitable for people who are constantly at work and do not have the opportunity to walk the animal or communicate with it.
  However, with proper upbringing, the breed is ideal for families with children. Basset Hounds become caring nannies and loyal friends for children. These pets are best kept in a country house with a garden plot. However, they must live in the house. Basset hounds are dogs for those who know how to devote time to them, know how to negotiate and give in, and know how to love a dog with all its shortcomings.
  Despite their eternally sad appearance and clumsy appearance, Basset Hounds are bright and cheerful dogs. They are lively, playful and resilient. And the strongest side of the basset hound's character is his friendliness. They make loving and affectionate companions for adults, caring guardians for children and friends for other pets. They are not aggressive at all. Bassets behave cautiously towards children and patiently tolerate their antics. Basset Hounds readily socialize with other dogs and can be trained to coexist with cats. Basset Hounds are only tolerant of birds and rodents.
