Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen

Breed History / Description

The tallest of the Basset breeds, the Grand (GBGV) is built on long lines: the longest legs of the Basset family, the longest body, longest ears and a noble head. He is rough coated and should retain a rustic appearance. He was originally used for hunting hare and rabbit. 


A strong, active and courageous hound, possessing great stamina, with a good voice freely used. 


Happy and outgoing. Independent and a little stubborn, not easily agitated, yet willing to please with firm handling.
