Tzu Basset

The Tzu-Basset is a mix of the Shih Tzu and the Basset Hound. It is a docile, happy, affectionate animal that is best for families with children. Both the Shih Tzu and the Basset Hound, despite differences in origin and breeding purpose, are gentle dogs with stable temperaments, and deeply attached and devoted to their owners.

The Shih Tzu, an ancient breed originating from either Tibet or China, was for many centuries a favored lap dog of royals. It is an alert and friendly animal, requiring nothing more than attention and cuddling to be happy. Its coat, distinctively long and silky, is often a point of pride with owners and is groomed regularly to maintain its appearance.

The Basset Hound is a French breed, originally for hunting and tracking through ground-scenting, at which they excel. Their appearance, of long, drop ears and large eyes pulled down by dewlaps and wrinkles, add to to their charm, along with their short legs and long, heavy bodies.
