Description of the
They are solid dogs that
appear rough and unrefined yet casual. They
have short legs, a sturdy bone structure,
and a body that is only slightly longer than
it is tall at the withers. The body length
is not as extreme as that of a basset hound
or dachshund. The dogs have a tousled appearance,
with a harsh double coat is both long and
The hair on the face and legs may
be softer than body hair. The fur on the face resembles
a beard and moustache. They usually have very long
eyelashes. The skull is domed, with drop, oval ears
like many hounds share. The ears are set low and
hanging, and if stretched out should reach the tip
of the nose. The tail is usually held upright, and
is long and tapered to the end, similar in shape
to a saber.
The coloring is primarily white
with spots of orange, lemon, black, grizzle (gray-and-white
hairs), or sable, sometimes with tan accents. They
may be bicolor, tricolor, or have grizzling.
Both sexes should be of similar
size, range between 12.5 and 15.5 inches (32 to
40 cm) at the withers
Between 25 and 40 pounds (15 to
Temperament of the Dog
They are very extroverted, friendly,
and independent hounds. PBGVs tend to be very active
and lively. They are good with children and other
dogs. They can be rather vocal, as is typical of
scenthounds. They tend to do what they want to do
unless there is a reward for them.
They should have daily walks to
burn off excess energy. Like other hounds, they
are stubborn and do not respond as well to training
as some owners may like.
They are well suited for apartments.
The Basset Griffon has a double
coat. The inner coat is for warmth and is soft.
The rough single coat protects the dog when hunting
in thick underbrush. His coat should be thick, wiry
and somewhat casual looking.
A weekly brushing will remove loose
and dead hair and help to control shedding. A pin
brush, comb and possibly a mat breaker are the only
necessary tools. Bathe him as needed. Properly groomed,
they shed little to no hair.
In the PBGV Club of America 2000
survey, the most common diseases reported by owners
of 640 dogs were persistent pupillary membranes,
recurrent ear infections, hypothyroidism, neck pain,
Among 289 live Basset Griffon Vendeens
(both varieties) in the 2004 UKC survey, the most
common health issues noted by owners were reproductive,
dermatologic (dermatitis and mites), and aural (otitis
externa, excessive ear wax, and ear mites).
