Both male and
female are a similar size; 33-38 cms (13-15 ins). The coat of the Basset Hound is smooth,
short and close without being fine. They come in black, white and tan (tricolour) or lemon
and white but any hound colour is acceptable. Their temperament is placid and affectionate
and they are neither timid nor aggressive.
They are a very popular family dog. Loves the countryside. Has a deep
sonorous bark which might suggest that he is unfriendly which is not true.
For grooming, regular brushing is all that
