Yeah man, they are pretty rad. I like all dogs but love the Bassets. We always have a foster around the house for High Country Basset Rescue. Our current guy came to us at 25 pounds when he should be about 50. He was an abuse case. Got him back pretty quick. Vet only wants about 3 pounds on him now. Coolest thing though... He was almost starved to death and the dog has zero food aggression.
