    Default Miniature Basset Hounds?

    Met a man out walking last week and he had what I thought was a young Basset Hound as it was v.small. Got chatting as Beastie was flirting with the BH and he said it was a ctually a miniature?

    Has anyone heard/seen of these before? I can't find anything on the net so I can't imagine they are recognised by the KC. In fact, he said it was a bit big for a mini and should be smaller!

    Didn't look like that. It was smooth coated and just like a mini Basset. Very strange!

    No new dwarf-breed then, as I understand it, it's actually a ancestor to the English Basset Hound.


    Glad to have been to some help, from Sweden.

    Thats similar descripton to my Old Basset, My mum told me he was american Basset though, Very lean and active (especially off lead), doesn't have much flesh folds weights about 15 kgs at most. We had English Bassets too who were completely different to Freud (the "american") they were chunky, slobs (not really) lots of folds of skin. Interesting..... umm... I must find those photos of Freud and other bassets....
