Small dog breeds
This is a cheerful dog that has a little bit of a mind of its own. It is intelligent, friendly, brave, active and has a good scenting nose.
Hound dog breeds (UKC)
This dog gets along well with children and other dogs and animals. In common with most other dogs, it needs to be introduced to cats and other pets when it is young.
The coat consists of hard dense hairs which are almost short. Golden or darker shades of pink are most common. Small white patches are usually considered a fault.
Remove excess hairs in the ear passages and keep the claws short. Comb the hair regularly and have it plucked about twice per year (depending upon the condition of the coat). It is possible to do this yourself. The coat must never be trimmed.
The Basset Fauve the Bretagne is a hound through and through. To prevent it from using its skills during a walk in the woods, teach it at a young age that it must come to you in command.
