Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen Puppies
Description: Taller than most Bassets, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen has a short head and low-set long ears, a dense, bushy double coat, in solid or mixed colors. They have drop ears that are medium in length, and they have a short muzzle. Their bones are light compared to other breeds, and the body is stocky. The tail is like a saber in shape, and their faces hold a heavy mustache and eyebrows. They can be black with tan markings, fawn with white markings, fawn with black markings, or tricolor--all of these being with white markings. There are four closely related breeds of this kind: the Grand Basset, Petit Basset, Grand, and Briquet, all with the ending name of Griffon Vendéen. The difference between the Grand Basset and the other Griffon Vendéens is his size. He is one of the Bassets, with a longer, shorter body, but is larger than the Petit Basset. They are a hardy, well constructed hunting dog who is also known to be very independent and unruly and very hot to pursue and kill prey. Grand Basset Griffon Vendéens are capable of rousing all kinds of game over a variety of terrain such as sandy, hilly or even flooded. They are active, intense creatures that do not necessarily recognize humans as owners from birth. They tend to have a one track mind when it comes to following a scent, and are very apt to following their instincts in this way. Grand Basset Griffon Vendéens are vocal in personality and prone to much tail-wagging. Their puppy-like looks are kept into their adult years, making them attractive for potential owners.

Basset Griffon Vendéens are alert, active, decisive, intense and
enthusiastic. Sure to warm any heart, this breed is courageous and good natured,
though a few have been known to be a little snappy. Grand Bassets are difficult
to handle with training, though, as they are instinctively independent and single
minded. They make reasonably good watchdogs, and are generally good with children.
Grand Bassets tend to dig.
Care and Training: Care
for this breed is minimal. The coat never needs to be trimmed, even for exhibition.
Grooming with a brush and comb is needed to prevent matting. They need a considerable
amount of exercise, so potential owners should be active and aware of the Grand
