Also, if you are thinking about getting a Basset Hound, consider adopting one instead. Dogs, even purebred dogs, are given up to shelters all the time, often for something as simple as the family moving or the family just not having time to care for a dog. Contact your local shelter and ask if they have any Basset Hounds for adoption. If not, ask if they know of any Basset Hound rescue groups. A rescue group generally keeps the animals in their own home until adopted. This means that they will know a lot more about the personality of their dogs and they will be able to help you get a Basset Hound right for your family. A Basset Hound rescue group will insist the dog is fixed before it is adopted, but that is what you want anyway. No need to breed more dogs. There are already millions of homeless dogs living in shelters right now.
