Basset Hound

In common with certain copies of the family of the Greyhounds, dogs Basset type are represented in the Egyptian tombs of the old ones by that that obviously have existed during a lot of time.

It was raised starting from the Basset Artésien Normand French crusader with the Bloodhound to get a slow but sure dog that was used to follow the rake of rabbits and hares. The Basset Artésien Normand arrived first in Great Britain in 1866 when the count of Tournow sent a couple, called later Basset and Belle, to lord Galway. In 1872 a bait taken place by them was acquired by lord Gnslow, its group increased with more imports from France. The best Basset British Hounds descends of this stock.
