The Basset Hound was first developed a French curiosity among the aristocracy, but after the French Revolution, this breed became a popular choice among commoners for hunting.

Care and Health

The Bassador is a hybrid mix between two dogs known to shed moderately to heavily depending on the season. This is not a hypoallergenic dog and requires daily brushing and grooming to help keep the shedding down. A stiff brush and a hound mitt will help remove dead and loose hair. While brushing your Bassador, always check their ears and remove any wax, dirt, or debris. This hybrid has larger ears and is more prone to collecting unwanted build-up that could lead to an ear infection. Daily grooming will significantly reduce the chances of your Bassador developing a hound “doggy” odor, but you may need to occasionally bathe your Bassador with a hypoallergenic shampoo to help clean him. Frequent baths are not suggested as this may strip the natural oils from your Bassador and cause dermatitis.
