Basset Hound, which is used to hunt rabbits and similar small animals, is still used for this purpose today, but it is also a very good house dog.


Basset Hound, a race of French origin, is unknown where and when it appeared. However, it is thought to have very ancient roots. Basset breed dogs are mentioned for the first time in history in 1585 in the book La Venerie, written by Jacques du Fouilloux. In this work, drawings of this race are also included.

The Basset Hound breed was especially popular among French aristocrats. These dogs, which were seen as a symbol of nobility until the French Revolution, became widespread among the people after the revolution. The Basset Hound race, which is used especially for hunting, has been maintaining its popularity since these periods.
