The Basset Hound originated in France sometime in the 1800’s. The French word “Bas” in “Basset” translates to “low”. “Bas” describes the breeds low profile standing at only 13-15 inches tall. The Basset was and is still used to hunt a variety of game including opossums. Their impressive sense of smell comes from the Bloodhound they were cross bred from. The Basset Hound can be found in three main color patterns: tri-color, red with white spots, and black and white.
