Basset Bleu De Gascogne

In common with other short-legged Basset's originating from various regions of France, the Basset Bleu De Gascogne is descended from a larger cousin, in this case the Grande Bleu de Gascogne.

This is a lively hound and an enthusiastic hunter, with a deep voice, excellent nose and distinctive coloration. Being somewhat slower than his long-legged relatives, the breed was developed to be followed by huntsmen on foot.

Powerful and well-boned without being heavy, this native French breed is still rare outside of its homeland.
