The Basset Hound is a breed that so many people know based on it’s iconic look: long body, long ears, short legs. They are an amazing family animal and are known for being very patient, devoted and affectionate, laid back, and honestly they can be pretty lazy! The Basset is not an active breed but does need regular walks and play time to remain healthy (that’s where Gwinnett Pet Watchers can help!). Fortunately, they don’t require too much grooming besides the regular brushing and occasional bath. The Basset Hound came from France but today in the US it is mainly used as a rabbit hunting dog.
