Looking for Basset Hound Puppies?
The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog of the hound family, as well as one of six recognized Basset breeds in France. The Basset is a scent hound that was originally bred for the purpose of hunting hare. Their sense of smell for tracking is second only to that of the Bloodhound. The name Basset is derived from the French word bas, meaning "low", with the attenuating suffix -et meaning "small", together meaning "rather low". Basset Hounds are usually bicolours or tricolours of standard hound colouration.
You want an Basset Hound puppy. There are over 2,000,000 puppies born in the United States every year and 99% are bred and born in puppy mills. Many Basset Hound puppies are born in these puppy mills. They are bred by breeders who only care about the money. These breeders will tell you the mother and father are healthy when they are not. The breeder will tell you the mother and father are "AKC" registered and healthy but AKC does NOT require the dogs to be tested before breeding. These breeders will tell they use ethical breeding practices when they do not. You need to do all you can to insure the Basset Hound puppy you purchase for yourself or your family has the greatest chance of being bred in a healthy environment. Dogs don't live as long as we humans and if you are spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on an Basset Hound puppy, SPEND IT WISELY!
