Basset Hound

The Basset Hound is a short-legged breed of dog of the hound family. They are scent hounds bred to hunt rabbits by scent. 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 together meaning rather low. Basset hounds are commonly brown and black and most often spotted but also exist in a variety of colors.
