Basset Fauve de Bretagne

The Basset Fauve de Bretagne is a small to medium-sized dog breed known for its distinctive appearance and lively personality. Originating from France, this breed is a member of the scent hound family and was primarily bred for hunting small game, particularly in the rugged terrain of Brittany.

Physically, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne has a compact and sturdy build with a slightly longer than tall body. They have a distinctively rough, wiry coat that comes in various shades of fawn, ranging from golden to red. Their expressive eyes, droopy ears, and wrinkled forehead give them an endearing and alert expression.

The average lifespan of a Basset Fauve de Bretagne is typically between 10 to 14 years. However, it’s important to note that individual dogs may vary and some can live longer with proper care, nutrition, and regular veterinary check-ups. Like any dog breed, providing a healthy lifestyle, balanced diet, regular exercise, and appropriate medical care can contribute to a longer and healthier life.

In terms of temperament, the Basset Fauve de Bretagne is known to be an energetic, intelligent, and independent breed. They have a strong sense of smell and are excellent trackers, often displaying great determination in pursuing scents. While they may be reserved with strangers, they are generally friendly and affectionate towards their family members.

These dogs require regular exercise to keep them physically and mentally stimulated. They enjoy exploring the outdoors and engaging in activities that allow them to utilize their hunting instincts. Despite their hunting background, they can adapt well to living in a home environment and can be suitable for families, provided they receive proper socialization, training, and ample opportunities for exercise.
