Origin and history of the Basset Hound
The origin of the Basset Hound name is the French word
"bas," which means low. Some people believe that this dog
comes from genetic dwarfs from the French Hunting Hounds,
but Basset Hounds are known to be directly descended from
the Bloodhound and are a rather old breed.
A poetic image of the Basset Hound by Shakespeare is as
follows: "Ears which sweep away the morning dew."
In 1863, the breed became truly famous when they were
presented at a Paris Dog Show. A lively dispute resulted
between two factions of European breeders, and afterward it
spread to England. Some wanted to keep the dog as a hunting
dog and other breeders wanted to turn the dog into a
The American breeders decided that both characteristics were
desirable and went about making the Basset Hound a companion
dog without sacrificing any of its hunter qualities. The AKC
recognized the Basset Hound as a breed in 1885.
This dog will hunt quarry down a den and in the open. They
are often used to hunt fox, hare, opossum and pheasant.
Basset Hounds will work together in a pack or as an
individual. They have slow reflexes but this is more than
made up for by their very keen sense of smell.
The limbs of the Basset make them have a slow deliberate
pace that a hunter has no problem pacing with. The Basset
Hound's nose is outstanding and can only be matched by their
predecessor the Bloodhound.
Our first President, George Washington, kept Basset Hounds
that were given to him by Lafayette after the end of the
American Revolution. Basset Hounds also have often been
written about in books and have been depicted in movies
about the Old West and the Ozarks.
