So you’re looking to adopt an Basset Fauve de Bretagne, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Basset Fauve de Bretagne, also known as the Fawn Colored Brittany Basset, is a small, stocky, rough-coated hardy dog that is energetic and fast for its size. The Fauve gets along well with children and other pets. Training and socialization is a must or Fauves can get into mischief. Not nuisance barkers, you will, however, know if a rabbit runs through the yard, as they then give the hound “voice” and chase. This breed is as happy romping in the field as he is curled up next to the family on the sofa. Smart, courageous and determined, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne is a serious hunter, easily adaptable to different types of game and terrain. It is equally an excellent companion dog, being cheerful, intelligent and eager to please.”
An Basset Fauve de Bretagne typically ranges from 31.75cm to 39.37cm in height, and weighs from 12.24699399kg to 15.875732950000002kg.
