Hilarious Running Basset Hounds

These are probably the funniest running doggies I’ve ever seen. When you see them run in real life, you don’t notice their face expressions but captured on the camera you can see it all. These dogs are around 1-foot in height at the withers. They usually weigh between 35 and 50 lb . They have smooth, short-haired coats but a rough haired hound is possible. Although any hound colour is considered acceptable by breed standards, Bassets are generally tricolor , open red and white , closed red and white , Honey And White  and lemon and white. Some Bassets are also classified as gray or blue; however, this colour is considered rare and undesirable. They have long, downward ears and powerful necks, with much loose skin around their heads that forms wrinkles. Their tails are long and tapering and stand upright with a curve. Tails usually have white tips so the dogs are more easily seen when hunting/tracking through large bushes or weeds. The breed is also known for its hanging skin structure, which causes the face to occasionally look sad; this, for many people, adds to the breed’s charm. The dewlap, seen as the loose, elastic skin around the neck, and the trailing ears, help trap the scent of what they are tracking.
