So you’re looking to adopt an Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “A loose translation of the name describes the dog well: Petit (small), Basset (low), Griffon (rough-coated), Vendéen (from the Vendée region of France). Put it all together and you have a diminutive hound, standing 13 to 15 inches at the shoulder, with short but strong legs and a rough tousled coat, bred to hunt rabbits on the rugged west coast of France. Other distinctive features of these little extroverts are a proudly carried head, a saber tail, and a loud, hound bark. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen is a vivacious small French hunting hound known for a happy demeanor and durable constitution. Bred to work in a pack, PBGVs enjoy company and do well with other dogs and kids.”
An Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen typically ranges from 33.02cm to 38.1cm in height, and weighs from 11.33980925kg to 18.143694800000002kg.
