Meet the Basset Hound

Basset Hounds have a reputation of being very lazy, having long ears and droopy eyes.  While they may have long ears and droopy eyes many are NOT lazy.  When looking to adopt a Basset Hound keep in mind that puppies and young Bassets are VERY active and need a playmate with lots of exercise to keep them out of trouble.  If you are looking for a more laid back Basset Hound you may want to look to at an older hound.
The Basset Hound Club of America website is a great resource for more information on the breed.
