12+ Reasons Why Basset Hounds Make Great Pets

Despite its sullen and serious appearance, the Basset Hound is a very sociable, calm, and playful dog. She is loyal to people, loves children, and gets along well with other dogs and pets. These dogs are friendly to strangers, but they will bark loudly if they sense danger. A dog of this breed needs company. Therefore, if you plan to leave your pet alone, then it is better to have a companion – a second dog.

#1 The appearance of these short, long and heavy hounds is fully consistent with their character: Basset Hounds are calm and extremely good-natured.

#3 To fully mature, they need from 18 months to three years, and during this period of life, their sense of humor, coupled with an “important” appearance, cannot but amuse even the most serious person.
