Basset Hounds - History

The Basset Hound appeared in France in the first part of the 16th century. The breed got its name from a French word "bas," which means "low." The rich, who had a strong liking for hunting, developed a breed capable of chasing rabbit, hare and larger animals in dense brush. The breed was recognized by the AKC in 1885. However, it did not enter the ten top widely spread dogs in the US. No sooner than in the second half of the 20th century did Basset Hounds acquire the acme of popularity. Nowadays, Basset Hounds are a popular breed all over the world. The breed is loved for its appearance and amiable personality. One of the basic functions of Basset Hounds is that of a companion dog.
