Basset Griffon Vendeen Petit

In common with other short-legged Basset's originating from various regions of France, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is closely related to a taller cousin, in this case the Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen. The two were still frequently interbred until as recently as the 1970s.

An extroverted, friendly, and independent hound with a casual tousled appearance. The hair on the face and legs may be softer than body hair. The fur on the face resembles a beard and moustache.

While not at all yappy, this is an outspoken breed that has a free and assertive voice, and will often join in and howl along with 'the pack'. Like other hounds, although happy and expressive, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen can appear independent and stubborn at times.
