Welcome to Meet the Basset Breeds
This new Meet the Basset Breeds website now incorporates bgvcommunity, a popular website that was built in 2010 to give BGV owners more information about their favourite breed.   Here you can read about all the shorter-legged scenthounds, which originated in France.  You can see a little about the history of each,  the Breed Standards (the ideal of what the breed should look like) and some extended Breed Standards designed to help judges expand their knowledge.  There is also advice on health care, feeding, grooming and much more.
