Basset Bleu De Gascogne

Breed History / Description

If Britain is the home of the terrier, a strong claim could be made for France as patron of many of the hound breeds and the French centre for hunting, at Chantilly is a wonderful living museum of these. The Bassets (the short legged breed designed to be followed on foot) are varied in coat and colour and the Bleu de Gascogne from the South West of France is one of them, distinguished by the 'blue' mottled markings and tan points.


Sagacious, lively hound possessing an excellent nose and a deep and sonorous voice. 


Audacious, curious and affectionate but somewhat reserved.
