Bassett Hound...

 

Basset Hounds are a breed of French lineage, believed by some to be a descendant of the St. Hubert's Hound, a dog similar to the present-day Bloodhound. The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog of the hound family. They are scent hounds, bred to hunt by scent. Their sense of smell for tracking is second only to that of the Bloodhound. The name Basset derives from the French word "bas" meaning "low;" "basset" (-et attenuating suffix) meaning, literally, "rather low." The Basset Hound is often considered a friendly breed. Bassets are friendly and welcome the opportunity to make new friends. For this reason they are an excellent pet for families with children and other pets.

The smooth, short-haired coat is easy to groom. Comb and brush with a firm bristle brush, and shampoo only when necessary. Though it is a constant shedder, grooming is fairly easy and requires a simple brushing with a firm bristle brush. The underside of the ears should be wiped clean on a weekly basis, and the nails trimmed regularly.
