Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen

The Grand Basset Griffon Vend�en is a hunting breed of dog of the hound type, originating in the Vend�e region of France. They are long-backed and short-legged. They were bred and still used today to hunt deer, boar and to track hare and rabbit although they are more often used by families as a domestic pet.

This dog, also called GBGV, was bred down from the larger hounds to hunt through thick undergrowth. The term Basset means long and low to the ground.

As natural pack dogs, it would be best that owners either spend lots of time with them or consider getting a second dog. They have a happy, playful and confident personality which can sometime evolve into disobedience but they are wonderful family companions. As long as the dog is provided with proper leadership and sufficient exercise, these dogs would make a great house pet as they are living happy and well-balanced.
